It's Not Easy

Last year during the after Christmas sale I bought all sorts of lights and decorations for the house. This year I don't really know if we will bother putting them up. It's hard right now for us: it's getting cold out there, it's been many weeks since we've had any kind of sighting, we have no new reason to hope our Sassy girl will be home with us so that we can celebrate the holidays with her sleeping at our feet.


  1. Please do not lose hope. I know it is very hard. Remember I told you a dog from Quebec, Canada was found after being lost for a year. Sassafras would not want you to stop looking for her which I know you won't, you are just so sad and I can feel your desperation. Put up those Christmas lights. Those lights will be for Sass. She may be running wild like her dog mannerisms but she may be running to find her way home. Leave your door open for her for Christmas and every neighbor will too and we will not give up hope. Continue your search. She has to be near. I will pray for her. I will pray for you.

  2. Stay hopeful. Put up those lights. They represent the star that guided the wise men - and the stars that will light her path home.
