The Ibooknet Menagerie - 1

Bookdealing can be a solitary occupation, but between us, Ibooknet have a pretty extensive collection of office animals keeping us company. First up in what we hope will be a series in between more bookish things, is Rosie, of Barbara Fisher's March House Books, specialists in children's fiction and illustrated books.




"Rosie is our dearly loved Cairn terrier – estimated age 20!! She came to live with us 5 years ago and we were told she was around 15 at that time. She was a kennel dog for the first 8 years of her life then lived with various families before ending up with our son and daughter-in-law – work took them to Denmark and so we agreed to look after her ‘for a while’. Shortly after that they moved on to Australia so Rosie became a permanent fixture. As you can see from the photos she is still capable of mischief but spends much of her time asleep in her basket. Her hearing and eyesight are failing and she has problems with her breathing but she still loves life.






The yoghurt pot was filched from the waste basket but unfortunately for Rosie it got stuck – if she could speak I’m sure she would be saying - it wasn’t me!"

Much cuter than my office companion (aka husband) but probably less good at getting books down from high shelves!
