Once more, today’s new word comes from Walt’s blog, Another American in France. I would have paid no attention, since I pretty much understood it was related to dog food, but by the time I visited Ken’s blog Living the life in Saint-Aignan, kibble appeared a second time, and I figured I’d better look it up.
You see, Walt and Ken have a new addition to their home, Callie, a lovely border collie puppy and I’m looking forward to learning lots of new dog words as I read their blogs 😉
As I thought, kibble is dog food. Wikipedia says
Dry pellet dog food, called kibble, is made in two different ways: extruding and baking
What interested me, was an expression I had never heard before, eating one’s own dog food
To say that a company “eats its own dog food” means that it uses the products that it makes. (…) Dogfooding improves software quality
dogfooding! Nothing to do with dog feeding
The English language is so versatile and creative!
