This is a beautiful city, as I knew it would be. What I didn't know - why had no one told me this? - is that one of its most prominent features is an endless supply of very cute puppydogs. I'm more a cat person, but Boston could almost turn me. Everywhere I look there are well-groomed, (usually) well-behaved puppies taking their humans for walks.
