Fingers Crossed for Dojah

If you have been following the comments, you know that someone saw the pictures the camera took of another dog and he believes it might be his lost dog Dojah.  We are getting him all the information about where the camera was set up, exactly, and will help in any way we can.

We've reunited dogs and owners before ( and certainly hope Dojah's story has a happy ending.

Not Sass, but Not a Fox (we hope not a lost dog)

This dog has visited the spot a couple of times (the dates/times are stamped on the pictures) and I hope his owner is just off camera and s/he's not lost!

More fox... camera coming down

The fox was back again last night (see below)... It doesn't look like this is one of Sass' spots, so the camera is coming down today or tomorrow.

This site is very near the Walter Reed Forest Glen Annex and a loose beagle was sighted there about 3 weeks ago.  (That's a tiny bit north of where Sass had been scent-confirmed in the past.) We did not have a scent confirmation at this site, but our great volunteer Martha was taking the lead in checking out the site.

It's certainly disappointing, but we've now learned how to use the camera and if a future spot looks good, we have a new tool available for bringing Sass home.

Here's a good look at the fox who visits, from last night's pictures:

And maybe this as well (or possibly another animal):

Nocturnal Animals

This looks like a fox to us:

We still may have to make some adjustments, but we are learning!

Camera in place . . .

The camera did take some pictures while Jeff and Martha were setting things up last night, but we didn't get any during the night, so we may have some adjustments to make.  If we can get it to work, then it will be so much easier than having multiple people available to pull an SD card twice a day!

Camera Going Up

Jeff and volunteer Martha are putting up a camera tonight to see what we can see.  It's a very, very, very small chance of seeing Sass on the images, but it does give us a chance to test this new camera that is designed to email images so volunteers don't have to go out and pull them off the camera manually.

Martha has gone above and beyond this summer to make sure that flyers are up in Sass' favorite neighborhoods, and she's tried to ferret out new spots to hang them and new people to talk to in the hope that someone would have seen her.  For that we are extremely grateful.

There is still a Sass-sized hole in our lives.
