Mexican friends call their dog greñas. They can't explain what this word means in English. Does anyone have any ideas?

If one is looking for dacron quilt batting at a fabric store here, it is called greña.

Mudgirl, you taught me something new!  Thanks, I didn't know that.

Actually, I miswrote that- it is stuffing, like you'd use for throw pillows, that is called greña. The dacron batting is called guata.
