Lovely weekend

We have come to the end of another eventful week, followed by a lovely long weekend. Talk about a ten degree drop in daytime temperatures and beautiful clear blue skies! It has actually been quite cool for the past two mornings, although today it warmed back up significantly.

On Saturday Zakir, Safa and I took Atlas for a walk along the Cahaba. Atlas loves being out there, the hardest thing it getting him back into the car. This time it involved Zakir picking up all 80+ pounds of dog and physically lifting him into the car. Usually he needs no convincing to get in the car when it's time for a ride.

There wasn't much water in the Cahaba this time, barely even ankle deep. Perfect for the puppy to play in.

And meet some new friends:

Actually Atlas didn't know what to make of these energetic labs he encountered. He felt a little threatened at first; but gradually got a little more comfortable around them.

After splashing around in the shallow waters of the Cahaba Safa took Atlas for a quick spin dry.

Hopefully with cooler weather in the future we'll have plenty of weekends like this.
