Spruce's treasures are all items I associate with Detective Llewellyn Watts from Murdoch Mysteries. It is easy to see how I would be considering most of the items, if one watches the show, especially the pretzel.

Spruce is my main pet because I love turtles. I changed him to blacklight to represent me and Llewellyn being LGBTQIA+, and I like the dark on the top.

Spruce's name is not a direct reference to Llewellyn, but it is a reference to an episode with Llewellyn, season 15, episode 5 - Love or Money. In it, there is a ruse to catch a suspect, where the team knows a man wants to get a necklace owned by George's Aunt, Zinnia (of course there is more to it than that, but I'm not going to go into all the details as this is mainly to make the point about where I got the name) and, as such, she is waiting at a bar to "accidentally" leave the necklace on the counter and then walk away, while George and William wait at a table farther away. While waiting, George asks William what he would like to drink, so as to seem less suspicious. William says to the waiter, "Two spruce beers, please." To which George replies, "Spruce beer, it's an acquired taste, I suppose." The team goes to wait for the suspect at the bank because they believe he will put the necklace in a safety deposit box, and it will be easier to catch him there. In this part, Llewellyn poses as the bank teller. All of this is presented in a very amusing way, and of course the suspect is caught.

My minion is not named for any reference to Murdoch Mysteries. When I first went to get a minion, I accidentally clicked on that one. I decided to keep them because, after all, it wasn't their fault I didn't realize (I know I could put them in the minion zoo, but I didn't know about it at the time and I won't take away a pet's minion). At first I named them Cronk, but I didn't want to call them the name with the exact spelling of the species, so I changed the first letter to a K. The only character I know of with this name is the one from The Emperor's New Groove. I like that movie, but it is not one of my total favourites, however the name works perfectly for the species, of course. I also think it's cool that the movie character is voiced by Patrick Warburton because he is one of my favourite actors, especially as he does the voice for Joe on Family Guy, one of my favourite shows. Speaking of favourite actors, of course Daniel Maslany is my favourite actor because he portrays Llewellyn =D
