Portsmouth is dog friendly?

Adventures in Portsmouth New Hampshire

I always forget people like dogs. I kind of still don’t. Am I allowed to say that as a person with a dog?

Last week I went to meet friends in Portsmouth NH with Murphy FC, and of course I think we won’t be allowed to go in anywhere. But who knew!! Every single hostess looked thrilled to see me and Murphy and said “of course, we looove dogs— what a cutie!!!” when I asked if we could sit outside. My friend who works in NH politics told me this wasn’t exactly legal so I won’t be referencing them here.

Our waitress asked if Murphy would like bacon or a chicken wing. Did you know dog’s can’t eat either of those? She (and I) apparently didn’t. Turns out, bacon is too fatty for dogs and chicken wings have bones that can kill Murphy. Yay Google! So I just asked for a paper plate, Murphy can be entertained by a paper plate for basically the entire time it takes me to drink a Sam Summer.

Here is the shrimp, in case you were wondering.

My Boss FINALLY proposed


Work place bullying is very serious and should not be tolerated.

That being said, my boss’s Christmas proposal to his girlfriend was long overdue. I’m slightly disappointed that at this time last week when I was bullying him about proposing that he already had a ring picked out and didn’t tell me.

He told me this morning in the work elevator, and I punched him in the chest saying “Excellent! Good work”. Apparently over the holiday I have become a 22-year-old male. I told him I couldn’t wait to tell my mom. (Yes, I told my mom months ago that my boss needed to propose, don’t judge me.)

Now “Ring Watch” will have to move on to someone else. So much more fun than “bump watch”.
