We have been moping around the house for a week now (when not out posting flyers for our lost Cassie), so yesterday we headed into Halifax for a day out in the big city.We went to the Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market first....a little short of vendors on Friday, but it was great to see the eco friendly building. We'll have to drop by on a Saturday or Sunday in December to see it on a busy day.We did some Christmas errands, and then had a nice lunch, more window shopping and then headed home. Surprise, surprise. We finally received a phone call about Cassie. Someone saw her in Mahone Bay...quite a trek from home.We headed back out again and visited the man who thought he saw her (he saw our Lost Dog ad in the paper and phoned). John showed him some photos, and the man is sure it was her. We posted signs all around the town and talked to a few people...not many people out and about on a November evening.John is out in the area again today, posting more signs. Our new found friend Colleen, from The Platter House Restaurant in Bridgewater is also out searching for her. John and Colleen bumped into each other at The Dog Shop in Mahone Bay, so perhaps they are searching together now (I haven't received a phone update in a couple of hours).I am at home sending out updates to our contacts by computer, and hoping for phone updates. I did receive a call from Maxine in Mahone Bay...a kind stranger who called to tell me she is out looking for Cassie on our behalf.So I am now filled with hope. Maybe we will get her home with us at some point. I can't believe how much I miss that crazy dog.
