Peabody Snarflenubbins & Co.

I've begun to realize a few things the past couple of days.

As I reach the end of my first year of teaching, I've begun to realize how much I truly enjoy teaching. I know I've chosen the right career and I couldn't be happier. Also, I've begun to realize no matter how stressful my job can be, no matter how frustrated I am when I arrive home after a hard day, Bender is there to calm me.

So I've decided that in my time off this summer, aside from working on lesson plans and professional development, I'm going to start an ETSY shop for dog treats. I've already posted two recipes on here and I have a folder full of many others. I think that people might enjoy spoiling their furry friends with homemade treats. I know I do.

We've been kicking around names and trying to think of logos for our shop. C whipped up the logo for me yesterday using illustrator (pretty good for his first try!) Right now, this is what we have:

Bender's full name is "Duke" Bender Peabody Snarflenubbins. The Co. refers to Bones, the other loyal taste tester, as well as myself - the human making the food, but of course the Duke runs the show. I like the monocle.

Do you like the name? Do you have other suggestions? Possibly a subtitle? Other logo ideas? (Remember this is a work in progress!) We'll here's your chance to be heard!

Bender's Adventure Dog Blog Contest

Step 1. Submit Other names. We'd like it to involve Bender's name somehow. ("Duke" Bender Peabody Snarflenubbins).

Step 2. I'll post a poll of all the names. Vote on your favorite name!

Step 3. The winner will be posted on the blog and receive a free sample from Bender's ETSY treat shop as a thank you!

Get those creative juices flowing!


  1. I like the name you came up with and I think it is such a great adventure to get started with! wishing you much success with it

    also glad you enjoy teaching! I think it is such a hard profession to do; always glad to hear there are people out there who like it :)


  2. Maybe:

    Peabody & Co - Healthy Dog Treats

    Not sure if they are healthy or not though :)

    I like the logo, but also think a more simplified version would look cute. If you need help w/it, let me know!

  3. Bender,

    You're dog of the day tomorrow on The Daily Corgi!

    Don't miss it :-).

  4. I've heard from a few others recently that they'd gotten some of your treats and really liked them. I'll have to see if I can find your Etsy Shop... after I finish my catchup and find out which name you decided on :)
