“You going to throw that ball or what?”

More: Fern is the source entertainment for our family. She’s figuring out her new role as a big sister to her new (human) baby brother, Duke, as she adjusts from city living and politicking in Washington, DC, to farming and ranching in the Texas Panhandle. She is likely the worst cattle dog but doesn’t have the awareness to know. Her eager spirit and energetic nature make her the best companion. Her hobbies include fetching, finding big sticks, peeing with excitement, and the uncanny ability to sniff out dead rodents and birds and the occasional chicken wing bone.
