Allison is “Outside the Box” with the Boston Business Journal

Sloppy Kisses

I get that not every person is a dog person. Dogs shed and bark. They lick unimaginably hard places to reach and eat things that: a. you don’t know how they found and b. you would never even touch with your bare hand. They jump on the counter, jump on your mother-in-law, jump into bed … Continued
