We had a visit the other day from the adorable Albe, an 8-week-old Australian Shepard pup with the sweetest personality. All book sales may have stopped for a period of ten minutes or so during his stay.
There’s been another puppy sighting! Meet Higgins the Scottie dog, belonging to our very own Hilarie of computer-fixing fame. Higgins has been making frequent visits lately (hurrah!), and here you see him playing with his favorite pal Letizia in our store’s Tech Center.
