    Hiking Frenchman Mountain – Las Vegas, NV

    This was actually a hike that we took in mid May – back when the temperatures were not in the triple digits as they are now ?.  Even for mid May, it was a little too warm if you were to get a late start.  We arrived at the trail head at around 10 in the morning, and by the end of the hike, it was pretty hot out.  If we ever hike it again (or do ANY hike in this area, for that matter), early Spring and Fall are probably the best time of year to hit the trails here.  That said, this was a fantastic hike!

    Sittin’ Pretty

    After a very long time with lockdown restrictions and Covid19 closures, Scout is happy to announce her first visit back to a groomer since…December of 2019! That is 6 months of growing out her crazy, aussome hair! Even with brushing, it is impossible to tame and control her hair after awhile… So, with the recent re-opening of businesses in the area, she was able to get a much needed groom! this is the shortest her hair has ever been groomed before… But, with temperatures hovering near 105+, she is feeling pretty content. And the fact that she looks like a puppy all over again, is something to bark about! ❤️?❤️?❤️?
