"Sassafras, where are you?"

That quotation is from our 2 year old daughter, who surprised us with it over the Thanksgiving holiday.  We were at her Grandparents' house, and they often took care of Sass for us when we went away.  The first time we went to their house after Sass' loss, our daughter wondered where she was (because she expected us to be picking Sass up), and K is apparently still looking for her there.  We keep K away from the search as much as we possibly can, because there is no real way to explain it to her.  We make flyers while she is sleeping, only one of us works to hang those flyers at a time, etc.  But she still knows something is wrong, and when she see's a picture of Sassafras, she will also tell you that, "Sassafras is a good puppy dog."

We have a picture, taken at a previous Thanksgiving, of Sass and the other family dogs all with their heads down licking the same gravy pan.


  1. We are all still hoping and praying for her safe return. We can't wait for all the tears of joy at the reunion of Sass with her family.

  2. That is so heartbreaking! I am sure you can't wait for the day when you will really pick up Sassafras from your parents' and your daughter says this and Sass comes running! Have you put out the scent of your daughter to lure Sass? She might remember her. I know you have done this with one of your clothing.

    I can't wait to open up this website and read that Sassafras is finally home. It will be a dream come true!! Please Sass come home!!

  3. We would love to have her home for the holidays!
