“Outside of a dog, a book is probably man’s best friend;
Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.” – Groucho Marx
OMG, HPBers. Today Kristen B. brought Zoe, her ah-dorable foster puppy, up to the store to visit everyone, and she was in such a fine mood that she agreed to a quick photo shoot in the Nature section (naturally.)
Everyone always asks us whether we are a dog-friendly store, and that’s a good question. In the early days (remember, our first store opened in 1972), we eventually had to limit the employees to 2 dogs per store, per day because we were concerned we’d start to resemble Half Price Pets instead of Half Price Books.
Seriously, Zoe is just the nicest pup. She found a nice book on Turning in a Circle Before Lying Down and also one on Licking Humans’ Faces before heading back home to Kristen B’s. Before signing out, she wanted to share some additional dog quotes:
“I poured Spot remover on my dog. Now he’s gone.” – Steven Wright
“Some days you’re the dog; some days you’re the hydrant.” – Unknown
“There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.” – Ben Williams
“Whoever said you can’t buy happiness forgot about puppies.” – Gene Hill
Do you have dogs? What kind? Or maybe a kitty-cat? Cats love books too! Send us pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org and maybe we’ll do another pet feature down the road!
