Picture Tells Us A Lot - Thank You Zachary

Zachary (Michael's son) called us today with the first sighting. He's been following the blog and thought he might have seen Sassafras a week ago. Today, when he and his dad saw a beagle running loose, they followed. They knew about Sassafras and called Sass's name -- the dog looked but did not stop. And, more importantly, Zachary knew to try to get a picture using his dad's cell phone. Here's the pictures and what we learned... and although it wasn't Sass, we are so thankful that the message to try to get a picture is circulating.

Here's the "full size picture":



Here's the blown up portion:


That's pretty good quality (remember, this was a cell phone). Although blurry, to our eyes that isn't Sassafras. There's too much black and the tail is not quite right. Also, because we could see exactly where the dog was, we could have Salsa the tracking dog sniff in the exact spot. That is very helpful, and helped us confirm what our eyes saw... That it wasn't Sass :-(

We really hope the dogs spotted today are back with their humans!
