Farewell to Our Sweet Jackie

We are deeply saddened to announce that our beloved bookstore dog and owner Nancy's constant companion, Jackie, passed away on Saturday after battling lymphoma.

Customers may remember her resting in the quality paperback literature section,
or sometimes taking a spot in the middle of the aisle, thus earning the occasional nickname "Speed Bump."
She loved all people and was especially fond of treats.
Every afternoon at three o'clock on the dot she and Nancy would go out for a walk and make the rounds of the neighborhood.
Here is Jackie with Celia and Nancy watching the Christmas parade go by in front of the Bookery.

And some older photos from friends of joyful, loveable Jackie:

Thank you to all our customers for always being so friendly with Jackie.
She had a very happy life as a bookstore dog!

And we will dearly miss her.
