More About Dear Prudence

I want to let everyone know that I did write to Dear Prudence/Emily Yoffe with my request that if there was a chance this was Sassafras my plea for information be forwarded to the letter writer.  Even if it wasn't Sassafras, I, of course, still would want this dog reunited with it's original adopting family.

The column, while it runs in the Washington Post, has a national audience, so there is only the very slightest chance it's about Sass.  Do I hope it is about Sassy?  Absolutely.  I would like nothing better than to have our search end with the happiest ending.


  1. Yes of course this could be another dog and hopefully he or she will be reunited with his family. It's sad when people take in animals without checking if they have a family.

    Hopefully the person who saw your poster compared it perfectly with the dog they think is Sass. Sass could be far away as well if she was picked up by the person who has her. It's good the newspaper has a national audience as well.

    I do hope you get a reply soon and that it is your Sassafras.

  2. I hope it is Sassy too!! In the chance it could be, I remember reading on the Lost Dogs of DC Facebook page recently (you are probably familiar with this story) that a family lost their dog and a person called them reporting that his friend had stolen it. The family made a plan that they would show up on the route in which the person walked the dog. They ended up stopping the person and I think calling the police. They took the animal to have the microchip checked and provided it was their dog. Anyway, long story short, for both that family in the Dear Prudence letter (which is hopefully you!), there is hope for a safe return. I'm thinking about you, as always!!
