Lazy Girl, Episode 16

Fern is my sister Jeanne's black Lab. 
Fern is very sweet. She's a good girl.

Here's Fern Story by Jeanne
"Fern was born on October 5, 2006 at the Guiding Eyes for the Blind breeding center in Patterson, New York. She tested out of the program and was released from Guiding Eyes on December 4. We picked her up that afternoon, a little over a year after our previous dog, Uma (also a GEB release), passed away. 

Guiding Eyes assigns a letter of the alphabet to each litter of puppies. All of their names begin with that letter. Fern was an F litter. She was one of 10 puppies born to Ila and Evan. We thought we would change her name but finally stayed with Fern. 
Fern was immortalized, along with myself
and our laundry, on Googlemaps street view July 2013.
and on Munchkin of the Week on 6/11/2012..."
Fern is employed by a company which specializes in fetching newspapers for dog owners. It's called, Get the Paper Inc. Every morning she gets the paper for Jeanne. She is paid in biscuits.

Fern likes to play with toys. This brown squeaky bear is her current favorite. In this game you ask her to drop it, and then you toss it, and she runs and gets it. Then she brings it back to you. Then you repeat this, many times.
 Fern is smart. She knows which hand her biscuit treat is in.

 Fern is a dainty lady.
 When sunbathing, she prefers to lounge on a towel.
Fern also loves to swim.
She particularly likes to find a conch shell in the water.
Jeanne keeps Fern's food in a 
special container.
Fern loves her breakfast and dinner.
She also likes apples, carrots,
green beans and broccoli.

  1. Fern is a beauty! The unconditional love we get from our pets is so nurturing for our soul. A biscuit and a good head rub with cooing appraisal
    is easy payment for their love and devotion!

  2. I love this post! You are one fascinating lady, Fern, and thanks to you, Jeanne, and Carol for sharing your story. It's an honor to have you as one of my Facebook friends!
