It's been a while since we've had a project in The Den.

We're going to try and compile an 'Encyclopedia Jen' which will include every relevant detail to Jen and her career in alphabetical order.

All of the suggestions deemed suitable (Claire - that's for you :p) will be added into one big post.

Keep it Witty. Keep it Clean.

Few notes:

- Karen Brunnet - is her physical trainer? (not sure);
- not sure about two dog names, seems it is wrong;
- Jennifer was born in Long Island, not in New York - all info on the web is erronious, please re-check with Jennifer! (somebody could ask her during Europe season please).

Well, maybe she changed her dog(s) but I don't think what we see here is actually a labrador and a labrador boxer cross :) :
