Toy Story or the Miracle chip

Toy rescued dogIn October of 2003, our Pekingese, Toyneka managed to squeeze out a tiny opening between our fence and the wall. She had had eye surgery earlier in the month and had lost a little weigh as a result of having to wear an E collar. Frantically we looked for her, put up hundreds of flyers, ran ads in the paper and contacted every veterinarian's office in a 25 mile radius...and never found her. After Christmas I put up more flyers farther away from my house and still nothing. In February, my wife was at the Dewey animal shelter and had thought she had found her. After getting a better look, she knew it wasn't Toy. But we ended up taking her home anyway. The Peke who we named Harriett was in very bad shape. Dewey animal shelter doesn't do any vet work unless a dog is adopted during the 3 days they are eligible. After the three days, they are euthanized. Harriett was on her last day when we adopted her. Her eye had ruptured and was oozing fluid, her nails were curved under and growing into the pads of her feet. She also needed three teeth pulled. The Black mountain VCA hospital in Henderson did an excellent job of fixing her up. She lived with us for the next 14 months. On Friday, April 22nd, she had to be put down due to kidney failure. She wouldn't eat and was wasting away. Sunday, April 24, we received a call from the Animal Rescue League of Iowa, stating that they have found a Pekingese with a microchip registered to us. One of the staff contacted Mr. Smith, the gentleman who found her and turned her in. His wife emailed us some pictures they took of her. Some how, she got 1400 hundred miles away.

I flew to Phoenix with a connecting flight to Iowa yesterday. Heather Starr, from the Animal rescue league, met me at the airport with the local news. We drove out to their facility where I was reunited with Toy. The local paper also carried the story and she was front page news. I can't thank Mr. Smith and the staff at the rescue league enough for their kindness. They not only took care of her, but they had her groomed and gave her everything necessary for the trip home. Today she is getting reacquainted with our other pets at our home in Las Vegas. If you are thinking your pet doesn't need a chip because they are an indoor only animal, think again. That is exactly what Toy is. She is an indoor dog. Don't chance fate. Get them chipped. You can get a low cost chip from the Lied animal shelter on Mojave 702-384-3333 if you are in the Las Vegas area, in Des Moines at the Animal Rescue League or at your local shelter.

Turnberry Towers

This project was formerly known as Madison Towers. They were supposed to be built back in 2001, but after 9/11 the project was put on hold. Now they have emerged at Turnberry Towers. Turnberry Towers offers the same level of luxury as other Turnberry properties. It will be located next to the Hilton, across the street from the Sahara. Turnberry Towers Las Vegas just started selling units as the last tower of Turnberry Place is being built. A safe bet for a high end luxury high rise.

More pages

Following the guidelines set by Search engines, I've split our lvrealty sitemap into two sitemap pages, the purpose trying to keep each page to under 100 links. At the rate I'm going, I should need a third page within another two months. I'll probably change the referrals page next, since its hasn't been changed in years. So many projects, so little time....

Kallisto Las Vegas

For the last few months there have been rumors that the Scandia Fun center was being demolished. Scandia has been a Vegas family spot for the last 18 years. Yesterday the rumors were confirmed when it was announced that it will be demolished in September to make way for a two new high rise condominium towers named Kallisto Las Vegas. The towers will be 50 stories each and will have only 350 condos per tower. Kallisto Las Vegas condos should start pre-selling later this year. Construction is slated to start for Opus in the first quarter of 2006. For more information about high rise condos in Las Vegas, please feel free to contact Jacqulyn Richey at info@lvrealty.net.


Not all high rise condos are meant to be

I'm surprised that this hasn't happened sooner. A Las Vegas high rise condo hotel, Krystle Sands, has been canceled. The property was bought by the neighboring Turnberry Place, located just behind the Las Vegas strip, for an undisclosed amount. Krystle Sands was nearly sold out at the time, and at this point there is no word on what they intend to do regarding commissions owed to the realtors who sold their properties. It wouldn't surprise me to see lawsuits being filed soon. Of course, the void that Krystle Sands left is already being filled. New high rise luxury condos have been announced. Seems the only constant in Las Vegas is change.
