Drought Drains Lake Mead to Lowest Level

Drought Drains Lake Mead to Lowest Level | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it

"The largest reservoir in the U.S. falls to its lowest water level in history, Nevada State Sen. Tick Segerblom introduced a bill title and issued a press release on July 8 calling for an 'independent scientific and economic audit of the Bureau of Reclamation’s strategies for Colorado River management.'"

 

This week’s history-making, bad-news event at Lake Mead has already triggered lots of news stories, but almost all of these stories focus on the water supply for Las Vegas, Phoenix and California. But what about the health of the river itself?

Fireworks and Dogs Don’t Mix |Safety Tips for the Fourth of July, Dog Anxiety - Pet360 Pet Parenting Simplified

Fireworks and Dogs Don’t Mix |Safety Tips for the Fourth of July, Dog Anxiety - Pet360 Pet Parenting Simplified | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it
For the pet owner, a fireworks display can become dangerous if proper safety precautions aren’t taken. Here are some tips from the ASPCA.
Marianne Riddile's insight:

I know of several people who have lost their dogs on the 4th of July.  Dogs are totally freaked out by the sounds fireworks make and they will bolt and get lost.  Keep your dogs in the motorhome and make sure they are micro- chipped and also wearing a well fitting collar with good ID.  If you have micro-chipped your dog, call the phone number on the tag to make sure the company is still in business.  I found a dog with a tag indicating it was micro-chipped but when I called the phone number on the tag, the person who answered said that company had gone out of business. I was not able to get any owner information from them!
