A Short Update

I know that some of you are wondering what happened with the possible sighting we had a couple of weeks ago.

First, let me say that the universe has terrible timing.  In this case, when the possible sighting arose we were in The Netherlands.  So, if you were wondering why we didn't jump, get out there, answer all the emails, etc., it was because we were 3,000 miles away.  In any case, the people who purported to see her never followed up with us, so that sighting was as solid as smoke.

We did, however, get a call the other day that lead us to call in Sam to do a track.  A woman in Sass' favorite Chevy Chase neighborhood called to say two beagles were running around her back yard, and while she couldn't get a picture, or close a gate, or any of the other actions at the top of our wish list, she was able to offer us the opportunity to bring Sam in and point to exactly where the dogs were - if Sass was there, then this was a great chance to try to pick up her scent.  We've heard off and on about two beagles running together, and we know of at least one instance where it was Sass.

Unfortunately, there was no Sass scent.  We did however, get a chance to reconnect with Sam, and with L., who we hadn't talked to in quite a while, and for that we are grateful.  Those two understand our search, and understand us after so many hours of following our Sassy girl's path.  They are old (new) friends.

We still miss Sass, and our daughter still asks when she's coming home.  To borrow from the Dixie Chicks:  They say time heals, but I'm still waiting.
