Only a Boston-area hound would...

...have nearly debilitating back pain, but go out of his way to drive up bumpy Fawcett St. in the morning to get a ham & cheese croissant at Iggy's because he happened to be in the area dropping the dog off at the kennel, right before a big trip when there really wasn't time to spare.

      1. would search for a restaurant that serves the best made in-house baked beans.

        1. Jog a couple of miles to Newmarket Square, wolf down a Speed's dog with everything, waddle back to my office and consider this a healthy lunch. Happy Holidays Hounds.

            That's a good one. I'll need to calculate the mileage from my office on Boylston St.; that might be doable!

            2. ...head out of Winchester at 11:15 AM, pick up a friend in Cambridge at 11:30, drive 40 miles away to a place called Poopsie's for bar pizza and a beer, then turn around to head back to work in Winchester by 2:30 PM.
