A Possible Sighting, But Not Quite Enough for Us to Follow (Yet!)

A woman just called to say she believes she's seen Sassafras twice in the past three weeks or so in Rockville in the neighborhood around Richard Montgomery High School. She wasn't able to give enough information, yet, for us to follow up with trying a track, but I was able to encourage her to take a cell phone picture if she saw the dog and explain how much this would help us - not only would we get a chance to ID her ourselves, but also we'd have an exact spot to put the tracking dog's nose down.

I shudder to think of Sassafras crossing Rockville Pike (assuming this is her, she'd probably be traveling from Rock Creek Park).


  1. That is my neighborhood. I will keep my eyes out.

  2. Thank you, Lyda! Tell your neighbors, too!

    1. i just sent the Sassafras flyer to the daughter of my best friend. she attends Richard Montgomery and I'm asking her to post at the school and all around.

    2. The support is heartening. Thanks to everyone!

  3. I hope with all my heart this is Sassafras and she will be home soon!!!!

    I can't wait for great news soon!

    All the best,
