Last Saturday afternoon before the sun set completely, Cocoa and I drove up to Lake Allatoona. I wanted to get away for awhile and think. She just wanted to get away! It is always nice to go for a short drive, listen to music, and be with friends.  While it was brrrrrrrr cold beside the lake, we managed to remember that warmer days are coming when there will be a sure need to pack lots of fresh water and ample puppy treats to munch.
