The Balloon Dog represents the 4 separate ink cartridge system incorporated into Brother's color inkjet MFCs.
Since many inkjet printers use one cartridge to hold all 4 inks, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black, when only one ink color runs out, the customer has to throw away the whole cartridge. With Brother's 4 ink separate system, when one color runs out, the customer only has to replace the one color and still use the remaining ink for the other colors. This was explained through this cute Balloon Dog, which was born in Australia and became a popular worldwide icon.
