Wasn't Brain supposed to be kinda like Orson Welles.

So American Accent I suppose, but he always sounded like Vincent Price a little.

It goes to show that an American can be a bad guy.

No... you were supposed to be rooting for the mice, not hating them...

@Step
Bessie is a beauty. I'd love to have a cat as well, but the rest of the family say no.
@Spider
Oscar is a beauty as well. The luster of that fur!

No it doesn't. Orange in Swedish is orange. Another pronunciation though.
We also got that Jaffa drink and we thought it was a catchy name.
@Mel
Emma is a darling, and the cats sure make me want to get one even more. And the evil mouse....looks evil!

Cute pets guys! Jaffa, Oscar and Emma are gorgeous (yes, I'm a dog person)!

She's made a few appearances here, but this is Charlie, our 5 year old golden retriever:

Pleading for food:


Hoping she's not going to be told to get off the bed:


Out for the count:

Jaffa is a town in Israel famous for it's Oranges.

Jaffa Oranges.

Jaffa Cakes are popular in the UK as an orange flavoured confection( Is it a cake or a biscuit? Who Knows? Vat joke)

So Jaffa has a lot of connections to Oranges.

Nice name for a dog though.

I love hunting, sporting and working dog breeds (and the mutts of those breeds). Oscar, Charlie (hee, hee, that's the name of my PhD advisor) and Jaffa are all so gorgeous!!

Sometimes I don't know what I'm thinking...
Orange (the colour) is indeed orange in Swedish as well. But orange (the fruit) is called apelsin in Swedish.
A word that origins from the expression: appels from China.

We were aware of the city in Israel called Jaffa, but when thinking about dog names it was the soft drink that inspired us.

You know what makes a really good pet?

- A tapeworm!

They're so low maintenence, they're the perfect pet for the person on the go! There's no need to worry about walking them, or feeding them, and they're always there wherever you are!
Trying to lose a few pounds? Well tapeworms can help you there too!
Maybe you're barren and want a pet to satisfy your desire to nurture, but you still want to know what it feels like to have something growing inside you? Well guess what, now you can with a tapeworm!
They really are an incredible multipurpose pet for the modern age.

So what are you waiting for? Go out and get a tapeworm, it's the parasitepet everyone's talking about, even Elizabeth Hurley has one!*

Cora, the Demon Dog. She's extremely clever and wicked.


Cuno, the not-as-Demonic-as-Cora-but-still-quite-scary-if-you-meet-him-in-the-dark dog. And he's often not the most focused laser in the show.


See? I told you.



My guinea pig, Puzzle (or my Guinea Pig Puzzle? ), when he was only a few days old. He's grown up now, though.

Jaz
Cuno is one handsome dog. And Cora: extremely clever with that looks: Just has got to be a Toller dad.

(Why the question mark?) Yes, he's a pretty dog. His tail curls and curls and curls when he is happy. Sadly he also has a nasty habit of announcing his happiness to the world in a very...odorous way. We believe it is a remnant from the food that he used to get when we got him from the pet asylum.

It's entirely possible that Cora's dad was a Toller. It would make more sense too, since I always thought that the head of a Golden Retriever is a bit too round and clunky (though not much) in comparison with Cora's. I also found them a bit too heavy set (though most of it is fur), while Cora is quite sleek.
