Follow your dreams.

A man from Japan is doing just this – although some might find his dream a little bizarre.

Fulfilling a life-long ambition, the man, Toko-san, has spend £12,500 on a dog costume that looks very believable.

He commissioned an agency called Zeppet, known for creating TV and film costumes, who spent 40 days making the bespoke outfit. Toko-san, said: ‘I made it a Collie because it looks real when I put it on.

‘I thought that a big animal close to my size would be good – considering that it would be a realistic model, so I decided to make it a dog.’

Add Brushing Your Dogs Teeth into Their Grooming Routine. Get in the habit of brushing your dogs teeth daily to avoid expensive dental visits later. You can use a human toothbrush if you like (though they make ones for dogs, too), but be sure to pick up tooth paste that’s formulated for dogs.

The costume has received mixed reactions from the public, with some thinking it’s cool and others finding it strange.

One viewer commented on a video of the dog costume: ‘No matter how much money you spent, you won’t be a real dog.’

To get it right, Zeppet went through various revisions, with San being involved throughout the production process.

It was a difficult task, given the amount of material needed to make it look life-like and fit an adult body.

A spokesman for Zeppet said: ‘Modelled after a collie dog, it reproduces the appearance of a real dog walking on four legs.’

Toko-san wrote on Twitter: ‘I ordered a costume! Thanks to you, I was able to fulfill my dream of becoming an animal!’

The mouth of the costume even opens and closes by itself.

Zeppet’s spokesperson added: ‘There are restrictions, but you can move in it. However, if you move too much, it will not look like a dog.’

Keep Dry Dog Food Fresh in a Sealed Container. Dog food can start to loose it’s freshness after it’s open. If you buy bags of dog food use an airtight sealed container to store it, the food will stay fresh for much longer inside a tightly sealed container.

Someone said: ‘Being freak, god level! Well done!’

Another wrote: ‘You spent money on that? Lol well at least it’s realistic to a degree.’

One commented: ‘I think it’s awesome that you are a Border collie never change unless you want to.’
