The daytime temps here are too hot for me. I have to find a shady spot for my pets and me outside. There is a slow breeze so if we're sitting in the shade, the breeze and shade keep us cooler. We have to move as the shade moves, but it's worth it. We have few trees here, so I move us around the motorhome following the shade.
One of my friends, Barbara, is having company from San Diego for a few days. I think that they're bringing their own camping equipment since her RV is very small. She will have fun activities planned. She's a good planner.
Yesterday I was outside with my dogs after dark (potty break) when a man in a car stopped me and asked if I'd seen a small black dog running loose. I immediately thought that he needs a reflective collar on the dog, or even one of those "Pet Locator" systems. I keep both of these items on Power due to the fact that he got away from me once. Power leaped over me at the door of the motorhome, and took off flying with his leash in mid-air! He was having great fun. Power refused to come back to me when called, and so I had to search for him.
"Scary" doesn't begin to describe the situation, since it occurred after dark and Power is black. We were located about 100 yards from an interstate highway, and I was terrified that Power would run toward the highway. I did get him back safely( such a relief!), and the next day I got a reflective collar ( to be worn constantly)

and tells you how far away and the direction the dog is located. I feel much more secure with these items in place. I had not had a black greyhound before, though I had owned two teacup poodles which were black. However they never took a flying leap over me and ran away laughing! I had not realized how quickly this situation could happen.
I plan to put a reflective collar on Chica,
and hang a pet locator pendant on it, since she is colored like Power.
