Rain, More Rain, Outside, in My Head

We've been traveling and busy, and trying to keep up.  The DC area has started a Summer weather pattern of hot, muggy days and late afternoon thuderstorms - there's one pounding outside right now.  There's so many reasons to hate this - hot weather is probably hard on our girl, thunderstorms also hard, and scary, too.  Our posted flyers get ripped down by mother nature, not just grumpy neighbors.

We have had no confirmed sightings, although the phone has rung a few times with some unlikely ones.  They truly are unlikely, or we would follow up.

We had dinner with L. and Sam (the tracker) the other night to catch up, check in, and just sit with people who know our frustration and our sadness.  One of the reasons there have been no blog updates is because of false starts I make writing a post - the entries all seem to repeat what I've written before.

We want our Sassy girl home.  We are trying to bring her home.  Whatever we try never seems like enough because it doesn't seem we are any closer to bringing her home.  We keep trying.


  1. You will find her. You're doing all the right things.

  2. Keep the faith. Don't give up. Go where she hangs out and call her name, she will know your voice and come to you. Keep at it. You will find her.

    A beagle named Daisy, @ FindDaisy on Twitter, was found quickly by placing a feeding station with her owners' urine scent on clothes, they said. It must have worked. She came there and got caught. I know Sassafras is shy and not used to people but one day she may come to trust a helping hand.

    Be strong. We all support you.

  3. Whenever I drive from bethesda to tenleytown I always have my camera ready, and I drive one way there and a different way back. I still hold out hope that I'll see Sass, and I'm sure there are others silently searching as well. Keep the faith!
