even in small quantities, can lead to upset stomach, organ failure, and
even death. For this reason, educating yourself about the products you
use around your home is vitally important. After applying any chemical
treatments to your grass or plants, it is essential to allow the treated area
to fully dry before exposing your pet. Even walking on the product before
it has dried can be dangerous. Rat poisoning products such as d-CON
contain a lethal chemical called Brodifacoum, which is found in many
rodenticides and pesticides. The type of bait used and the species and
size of the animal will determine how dangerous the ingestion of d-CON
is. If your animal ingests any chemical product, contact your veterinarian Dogs • Cats • Avian • Exotics

Who doesn’t want to look and feel their best? If you
asked 100 people who were starting to exercise for the
first time (or returning to regular workouts after a long
time off) what their main motivation was, the majority
of them would say something like, “I want to look and

good enough. But when that scale hasn’t budged in a
few weeks, it’s time to remind yourself that there are a
lot of other reasons to make exercise a habit.
Research has clearly linked coronary heart disease,
diabetes, and cancer to lifestyle. Apart from aiding in
weight loss, physical activity offers a positive, healthy
way to release anxieties and alleviate tension, which
can help reduce your risk of many lifestyle-related
diseases. Exercise also supports mental well-being:
Physical activity actually changes your brain chemistry,
which directly influences your mood and frame of mind
for the better. Among other things, physical activity
triggers the release of endorphins, which act on the

The association office and the association’s
landscapers do our very best each year to try and
mitigate as much water run-off as possible during
the irrigation of the common areas. However, due to
factors beyond anyone’s control such as high wind,
topography, and leaks or breaks in the over 60 miles
of irrigation system, some run-off is absolutely
unavoidable. We will be charging and testing the
irrigations systems in the common areas over the next
few weeks and it will slowly become fully operational
for the season. If you see a leak anywhere, please do not assume that your neighbor
reported it or that we found it during our normal course of business. I, and the
association’s Budget, would appreciate you taking a moment to report it at 747-4663
or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will get on the situation and make repairs as soon as
possible. Please also be ready for the landscape maintenance season at your homes.
We plan to be ahead of the curve this year in the Common Areas and we hope you that
will join us in our efforts to have the best season ever.
To revisit a previous subject, we are still getting reports of coyotes visiting the
residential areas. Please do not leave any dog food or other food sources outside your
home since, as you can imagine, it tends to attract wildlife. Any food left untended
essentially becomes a buffet for small animals, which will attract the larger animals
that prey upon them. Several residents, who do not have any pets, have applied for
and have been approved for pet containment wire fencing for their yards. In this
case, the fencing is to keep wildlife out, so you may wish to consider this as option
depending on your circumstances. If you have any further questions regarding coyote/
wildlife encroachment prevention measures please call Zack at Nevada Wildlife
Services at 851-4848.
The speed limit on the parkway is still 35 MPH and the Reno Police Department has
been taking enforcement of it very seriously lately due to resident complaints. Please
