Making Improvements to the Feeding Station

L. and I have a plan to go out tonight and make some improvements to the feeding station that is set up for Sassafras - we're adding a little protection for it, and some scent from Jeff and I (torn strips of our sheets - Message to Jeff:  Honey, we need new sheets!)


  1. With this recent rain, my dogs always go crazy because they are both afraid of thunder. That made me wonder if you and Jeff know of any quirks that might work to your advantage in devising a way to catch her. For example, if she hates storms, is that the time to have some volunteers out looking because she'll perhaps come out of fear of the weather if her name is called. Just wondering and so I thought I'd write... Frank

  2. Hi, Frank! (Frank has passed out cards for us) I can't think of anything that would really help here. Sass loves to lie in water, and it was inevitable after a Spring rain to have her flop down into whatever puddles were available. The muddier the better! The picture on the site with her in the creek with the frisbee thing in her mouth is typical - she could stay there a good long time.

  3. Great idea Frank! Some dogs do come near humans when they are frighten by storms. Let's hope Sassafras does the same. Get out there volunteers!! You are the best and Sass's parents too for sure.

    I'm hoping for great news tonight! Best of luck.

    Come home Sassafras! ❤
