Forever loved, this plucky Terrier-cross had a specific love for and loyalty to Spalding High Bounce Balls.  She was an agility champion, and loved being fast and without fault for her beloved human Georgia. Now happily completing agility courses in the sky, Darcy crossed the rainbow bridge in 2013.  This has not stopped her continuing to star in the cartoons as the brave and clever Darcy Brothbone. As Darcy was so loyal, obedient and trustworthy, Georgia took her into many Kindergartens to educate children about staying safe around dogs.


Irresistibly cute, Liza the “Yorkie-Hua-Pugeranian” shines with exuberant fun loving enthusiasm for life.  Never wanting to miss out, she likes to be part of any adventure on offer.  Holding her curly tail aloft as a flag, Liza can often be seen as a little orange dot running in the distance.  Despite being portrayed as a bit ‘ditzy’ as Liza McSmelly in the cartoons, she is actually very clever and quick to demonstrate her tricks on command.

Despite her gorgeous “lap dog” appearance, she is a wild girl at heart.  She loves to chase rabbits, and kangaroos through the most challenging of obstacles.   Liza always does her best.. but not always what is expected! 


Alfie joined our fur family when he was 8 years old.  This Lab/Staffy cross Maltese/Shih tzu spent 4 years in Monika’s Doggie rescue being rehabilitated from years of neglect and skin problems.  He has flourished since being adopted by Georgia, and adores running on the beach and meeting new doggie friends. This spritely old gentleman loves to explore anywhere WITHOUT prickles, but his favourite place is on the lounge. 


Affectionate and quirky cat Nutmeg and her sister Cinnamon came to live with us after being abandoned in a cemetery.  Despite this, Nutmeg is confident and enthusiastically greets visitors to her home.  She is characterized by her orange nose stripe.  Mottled with black, ginger and white fur, her two typical pastimes are lying around in the sun (or under a bush), and eating!


Nutmeg loves FOOD.. and will easily meow herself into a second breakfast from any unsuspecting human.  She may be found luxuriating and all manner of strange places, and also likes to go walking around the district with her dogs in uncharacteristic bursts of activity.  Nutmeg has her own section in the Brothbone and McSmelly website, called NUTTY'S NIBBLES where she gives tips to felines on staying fat and lazy!

He is developing a reputation of being able to eat almost anything, hence his character Prof. Alfie Doo in the ebook series is described as a “Paleogastronomist” (eater of all things dead and decomposing).

Cinnamon is like no other cat.  She appears to have an identity crisis except it doesn't bother her at all.  Obviously containing elements of otter and meerkat, she spends her day in imaginary games with ‘spirit folk’ in the garden!  She loves her humans but shy with strange people.  Nothing is normal about this tortoiseshell kitty.    Cinny loves to attack bathmats, dirty underwear and human elbows when they are pouring cat biccies!


Cinny loves to attack bathmats, dirty underwear and human elbows when they are pouring cat biccies! Her favourite playmate is Liza, and despite being small with tiny front legs, Cinny can hold her own in their enthusiastic games.  Cinnamon is not adverse to the thrill of ambushing her sister sleeping in the sunshine.
