How it must feel to be famous.

So we had a day trip out to the beautiful Portsmouth in NH Sir L & I ,all the kids and Molly.

It was a beautiful day the sun was shining, blue skies and warm temperatures which meant that we could have an outside lunch on a terrace somewhere. Oh we all felt so grown up going to the city.

After a light lunch we took Molly for her first walk in the city. I cannot believe how many people stopped to pet her. One couple were even taking photo's of her. Old folks, young folks, toddlers, in fact just about the whole population of Portsmouth plus the tourists petted her.

After a while I realised how this could work to my advantage. Sir L could stand outside the shops with the dog & get lots of attention whilst I shopped away.

The first hour was a novelty until I realised that we had only gone in 2 shops due to the "Molly crowds." Then after hearing everyone's stories of their dogs, dogs they grew up with to how many dogs they had it became a little too "sameish." Molly loved the attention, someone even gave her a puppy muffin from a special dog treat store!

Now there is something wrong with this picture as there is no English shop within a 2 hour drive of where we live however here is a dog treat store! Bah humbug!

I have had 3 babies and had people stop & coo but I have to say that Molly pulls more crowds than a newborn. This is how it must feel to be famous as everyone wants to talk or touch you!

Not for me thanks!

My first daughter was born the same week my best friend got her Weimaraner puppy. I couldn't believe how much Anna was snubbed. Cracks me up to remember how indignant I was!

Molly is gorgeous though. Congratulations!
