I’ve recently got a rescue (in red collar) he’s really naughty and ate my Jaffa cakes when I wasn’t looking. Shall I call him Jaffa?

Do you like my dog?

Two scrumptious dogs! Red collar looks like a Jim to me. Jimmy Jaffa for long. 😁

Um, where I come from Jaffa was nasty slang for an infertile man (cos of jaffa oranges having no seeds) so I wouldn't because of that. I thought it meant that everywhere, but maybe not.

He's pawjus. Keep an eye on him for a few hours though after eating the chocolate.

There's barely a scrap of chocolate on a Jaffa cake so I'm sure he will be fine.

How many did he eat?might need to ring the get if he ate a packet.
If he stole a couple an should be ok,hopefully.
He is gorgeous and seems at home with your other dog.
It's brilliant that you gave a rescue dog a home.🐾🐾🐕🌈🌻💐

Id never even gave a thought as to why they were called jaffa cakes until this comment about jaffa oranges. Thanks.

He's lovely - definitely Jaffa! Who's his equally lovely friend with the frosty face ? 😍

I hadn’t realised Jaffa had unpleasant connotations- maybe I should call him something else- does he look like a Bertie?

Chocolate can be poisonous if the cocoa content is high..and depends very much on how much has been consumed and how big the dog is...there's no need for an automatic vet trip, causing likely unnecessary distress.

Your new dog is gorgeous OP

It's clear you love him already and I think Jaffa is a great name.

It does sound like he's a little stressed from being in a new place so give him a bit of grace with the skirting board thing. Dogs don't chew things to piss you off. Hope he didn't get shouted out!

there were only two Jaffa cakes left so I think he’ll be fine. He gets very distressed if I put him in the car so I’ll just keep an eye on him

I've heard that meaning from my eldest son once
