Ladadog (real name: Lord Nelson) is a 150-pound family pet who lives in the suburbs of Ridgemont, New York with English professor James Nash (Mark Miller), his wife, Joan (Patricia Crowley) and their four children.

On the couples tenth month anniversary James Nash gave his wife a puppy that they named Ladadog. Placing words into the dog's mouth James said "Your husband informed me that I was to keep you company while he is away educating the youth of America. He has just been promoted to the position of instructor."
