Dog (Border Collie)
5 human years (17 "Housepets" years)
Matt is fully grown and is average height among dogs. He is mostly black, but his stomach/chest is white. He also has a white stripe that starts between his brows and runs down his face and neck, merging into his white chest. Unlike most Border Collies, his paws and arms are also black, not white. His fur is medium length and soft, not scruffy. His ears are usually floppy, but occasionally erect. He is of a lean, healthy build. His eyes are a deep blue, as is his collar. From his collar hangs a circular gold-colored dog tag, upon which an "M" is engraved.
Matt is a very quiet person. He is somewhat introverted and is very shy when meeting new people. He would prefer to be alone than to be in a large group of people, but would also prefer being with a small group of close friends over solitude. He is very friendly, albeit not being very talkative. He is also incredibly intelligent. He has very few strong views of his own, and is open to any new views or suggestions (that make logical sense, of course). Most of his time is spent either on his computer or with his friends.
-To the envy of the other pets, Matthew has his own computer
-He spends most of his time with his "sister," Rachel
-He has played the violin since he was a pup, and is a somewhat popular local player
-He was inspired to pick up the instrument by his "sister," who plays the cello
-He prefers to be called Matthew, but most of his friends continue to call him Matt
-He was the only surviving pup from his litter
-He is a huge fan of the webcomic "Housepets!"
-Oh, yes, I forgot to add that he is a talented chef, as well =P

Rachel is entirely black, and is very tall among animals. Her paws are very large, and her claws are clipped extremely short. She is long-haired and has floppy ears. Her fur is a little curly. Do not be deceived by her thin, feminine build- she is actually incredibly strong. Her eyes are a chocolate brown, and her collar is a dark red. The ID tag she wears is also gold-colored and is in the shape of a viol. While some people say she commonly wears a blank, oblivious expression, others believe that when she looks at people she sees directly into their soul.
Rachel is very polite, and incredibly loyal to her friends. She is rather talkative, and loves meeting new people. Despite these traits, though, she tends to stay inside her house often. She is very lazy, but will instantly do anything that she sees must be done. She is also very perceptive, often knowing what situations other people are getting into and preparing a solution ahead of time. She spends much of her time either playing the cello or being with Matthew.
-She thinks she loves Matt, but realizes that he only sees her as a friend at the moment
-She adores the cello, and is a professional level player. She plays gigs for the town frequently, and in the words of one local critic, "will revolutionize the way we think of the instrument."
-She plays everything from standard classical reptoir to Metallica covers on an electric cello
-She also loves to play duets with Matthew
-She also plays the piano. She is self taught and is an excellent player, but does not perform on the instrument in public. No one knows why.
-Rachel is one of the best swimmers in the town. She has saved her parent's from drowning on multiple occasions.
