The March heat wave continues!
Our shady campsite at Las Vegas Bay Campground, photo taken in the afternoon

I’m grateful for morning coolness.
This is when Reggie and I take our longest walk of the day. We stroll along the paved, campground road that is lined with oleander and creosote bushes.
The creosote is covered with tiny blossoms of bright yellow.
As we walk in the morning sunshine, I reflect upon our life.
I’m content. I think Reg is, too.
Sometimes I wonder if I should find another dog. I wonder if it’s the best thing for Reggie. I wonder if I’m subconsciously wanting to duplicate the unique relationship of Spike and Bridget. That’s not possible, of course.
I want to do what’s right for Reggie.
I give him enough exercise and I do play with him. There’s no doubt though that he’s happiest when playing with another dog . . .
Although he does love our tender, cuddle times, just the two of us.
We go out to the point.
The pavement ends and a gravel path leads us out onto the spit of land that extends beyond the campground. Below us the river flows gently through its sandy banks toward the lake that has receded further south.
What used to be Las Vegas Bay has become a lazy river flowing through a wide wash of rock, sand, and desert plants.
Last night, I looked at rescue dogs online.
I went to the website for Adopt-a-Rescue-Pet of Las Vegas.
ARP is the organization that fostered Reggie until I found him at an adoption event that was held at PetSmart in Las Vegas two years ago. You can see how young he looked then by following this link:
Should we go to PetSmart again? ARP is having an adoption event there on Saturday and Sunday.
Do I want to drive over there? Not one of the dogs on the website jumped out as being “right” for us.
But then Reggie wasn’t even shown on the website and he’s perfect from the tips of his ears to his toenails that always need clipping!
Gee, it wouldn’t hurt to go and see the dogs . . . .

“Let’s go, Reg! I want to be at the bank when it opens at nine.”
With temperatures climbing to the 90s by afternoon, we need to get there in the cool of morning. I want to shop at Wal-Mart after the bank visit and before the day is too hot to leave Reg in the PTV.
We motor out of Las Vegas Bay Campground and take Lakeshore to Northshore Drive to Lake Mead Boulevard.
I love this route to North Las Vegas!
At the bank I take care of a few things, including withdrawing cash.
If we should find a brother or sister for Reggie tomorrow at the adoption event, I’ll need cash because checks and credit cards are not accepted.
