Choko is a apricot poodle who wears a tuxedo (white chest and marking on feet), he loves sleeping, car rides, walks in the park, his stinky tennis ball and enjoys eating riceballs.

His temperament fits our family dynamics so well and we all love him so much. Choko is also very well-trained and allows us to snuggle him for long periods (something which I enjoy doing every night!). Poodles generally don't shed much, but we do brush him daily- else he looks unruly.
|Choko's baby tooth! So cuuuute|
Having him in our family has brought nothing but joy to our lives. He's made us laugh so much and even when he does nothing, we can't help but coo over how adorable he is. Understandably, not everyone shares the same enthusiasm I have for dogs, these people don't necessarily hate dogs but would rather just not touch one- stray and domesticated ones alike. I know of friends and even relatives who are like this, but once they meet Choko, they all *LOVE* him! Snuggling him, taking pictures, wanting to kidnap him. He just draws people to him and we can't figure out what it is!
This extends to people who encounter Choko on his daily walks around the park where I live, many not knowing our names (walker of the day would be either my parents, my self or my sister) but would ask us, "Is this Choko?", remembering the dog but not the owners LOL. Strangers have come up asking for pictures, saying he looks like a bear, asking my parents if they could breed Choko. There are also runners who whiz by, but not before waving or smiling to Choko- whilst ignoring the walker-of-the-day. This is the norm and has happened many, many times. LOL.
Choko turned 2 in March, but he will always be a puppy to us..
A week ago, Choko had his first roadtip.. he was so good and we didn't have any issues at all. Everything was on schedule, eating, pooping and even pee-ing (we brought his pee-pads). I did however have a slight concern when we were heading out for dinner.. we were leaving him all alone, free to roam, in a house which he had never visited until that day. We came back 3 hours later to a eager pup sitting by the door and no mess or ripped furniture in sight *phew* I knew you were a good boy!

Okay, enough of adorable Choko pictures, I shall end the post with the "real" Choko LOL, I laughed so hard..
|ARE WE GOING FOR A WALK?! ARE WE?? ARE WE??????????|
|Why are you laughing at me? What??|
BAHAHAH.. we love you Choko!!!
