Jon Asked, on our Facebook Page . . .

Q:   i am sorry for your lost dog. there are so many dogs that need homes, maybe you should rescue another while you look.

We get asked some form of this question regularly.  Sometimes people even call the Sass phone to ask if we want to adopt a dog they have that they can no longer keep.  It's always difficult for us to thank them for thinking of trusting us to take good care of their pet, but we have to tell them no.

For us, it's not the right time.  I have no doubt that there will be a moment when we are ready to bring home another dog (and it will be from a rescue or a shelter), because I've never imagined our home without one.

It's pretty simple, really.  Even though Sassafras isn't with us, we still feel like we have a dog, and she needs a lot of our attention and our help right now.

  1. Dear Jeff and Beth,

    I couldn't agree with you more. You do have a wonderful dog named Sassafras and she is out there waiting to be rescued. She will know who you are once you find her. Although of course you will make another dog very happy, your attention for now is for Sass and we will all keep hoping and praying she will find her way home or be found. It seems she is staying in the same neighborhood. Keep searching, keep hoping. We are all here to help for your one and only dog.
