The Bookcase is an animal friendly store. You are welcome to bring your children upstairs to our Contracts office to meet Roger who is a 7 year old African parrot.
Roger has been coming to work at The Bookcase since our Deputy General Manager, Robert, bought him from a pet shop on Budaiya Highway as a little fledgling. He now has a very large repertoire and can also sing rock songs and likes to “answer the phone” when it rings (if it doesn’t ring, he is very adept at making the ringing noise himself too).
Linda, the General Manager has two salukis and one local dog, Cleo who was found in the road when she was only 4 weeks old.
Deema was the inspiration for the beautiful saluki Dunoon mug you will see in our gift shop and has also starred in a Hot Laser rock video as well as appearing in the Gulf Weekly on several occasions. She like to play with her sister Sheema and Cleo too of course, although her favourite pastime is just looking beautiful!
One of our favourite four legged visitors to The Bookcase is Balloo – the wonderful, generous chocolate Labrador. He has twice come to the store for book signings with his mummy Sarah Clarke(you can see his video on our Links page).
Well behaved pets are always welcome to visit The Bookcase with their owners!
