Digital Desk: A Japanese man recently made headlines for spending almost $14,000 (Rs 11.67 lakh) on a realistic collie outfit to satisfy his goal of 'becoming a dog.' He did it because he cared for animals. While the individual refused to give his full name, he is known as Toco.
Now, the man has attracted the attention of the internet once more after completing a Crufts-style agility course. Toco has his own YouTube channel, I Want To Be An Animal, where he routinely broadcasts videos of himself on dog walks, eating dog food, and learning new tricks.
Toco's most recent excursion has the canine enthusiast attempting to leap over a series of hurdles in a garden.
Toco published a series of photos on Instagram showing him in the collie costume and badly failing the test by dropping on the ground with a pole and banging into the hurdle pole. "When you become a dog, you want to try agility, don't you?" he wrote in the post's description.
Toco's costume was designed and made by Zeppet, a company known for creating costumes for television shows and commercials. According to the inventor of the custom-made collie suit, the dream took about 40 days to become a reality.
