One man who goes by the name Toco went viral recently when he opted to spend a whopping $15k to transform himself into a Border Collie.
But things didn’t quite go in his favor as he’s only being met with a lot of disapproval by other dogs.
Toco’s very odd but extremely captivating journey has caused him to attain great fame online. And with his follower count going higher than 56k, his story is really a hot topic around the globe.
Be it internet forums or even news platforms, people can’t get enough of the jaw-dropping story of this man from Japan who now likes to identify as a dog.
For years, this dog enthusiast has been keen on adopting the fame of being a pet pup but when it actually happened, it was a tough pill for many to swallow.
The fact that he actually quit his job and started to walk the streets in a dog pose and intricately designed dog costume had plenty of people talking. Moreover, he has experienced a unique lifelong dream of being an animal and while it’s blowing people’s minds, he loves it.
The investment was real as the very realistic dog attire did cost him a fortune but the issue now is that he’s having trouble interacting with real dogs. Moreover, he deems it to be a real challenge while speaking for an interview with The Sun recently.
He is awfully sad because he claims that nobody is treating him equally and that is just devastating, to say the least.
He knows that such friendships do not come easily but the transformation to a canine has been far from simple. Hence, he is unhappy that his efforts and progress toward designing the best friendships are just stagnant and not moving in the right direction.
“Yes my journey has been a tough one but it’s been worth it. My dream has come true but not all the responses that I am getting right now are positive”- he adds.
