Again, we remind people in this neighborhood to try to get a picture on their cell phone before calling us. Not only will it give us the first look we've had of our Sassy girl in over a year, but it will record the exact place and time she was spotted. ( L., who is also hoping someone will get a picture of her lost Olivia, calls our girls the Unicorns - we hear and talk about them a lot but we never see them.)
As a bit of an update on the sightings that led to this track, there were two separate calls on May 9. One is described below from an email by the spotter (roughly Jones Bridge and Connecticut). The second was at roughly Delaware and Taylor (you'll see it marked on the map). Both calls describe two beagles being together.
Of note, we've checked the online database at Montgomery County shelter and there do not appear to be any dogs that match the description (via photo or description) there, so we assume that Animal Control was unsuccessful.I was in the North Chevy Chase, Maryland area this afternoon [May 9] at about 2:45 pm or so. I saw 2 Beagles running around and chasing a deer in the wooded area of housing off Brierly Court.I didn't get too close to the dogs to see a collar or identifying marks. The one that I think was Sassafras was very "mangy" dirty and tired. It also seemed to steer very clear of people running in the opposite direction, when I did try to get a picture with my iPhone, which I understand from the web site is typical of Sassafras.There were several people that had stopped and were trying to approach the dogs, fearful that the would get hit, since the local elementary school (NCC right on the corner) was due to let out soon. I do know that one gentleman called Animal Control and they were on their way to the area where the dogs were spotted.I know this isn't much information, and the sighting of 2 Beagles is out of character for Sassafras sightings, but you never know what may come of it.
