The Dogs are taking a break today. They are too full from the dehydrator treats I made over the weekend (will post about that tomorrow).

I've had so many people ask me what the deal is with Ferndoggle. Stupid name, huh? Well it's an even stupid-er story. has absolutely nothing to do with dogs. No lie.

My name is Jennifer. Most of the world calls me Jen. Scott calls me Jenny. But my family calls me Jennifer. When I was in high school, my brother's friend started calling me Jennifern. Then my brother started calling me Fern. Then my Dad got clever & started calling me Ferndoggle and the rest is history.

Told you it was stupid.
