This ball of verticle fluff is Coco. She’s a Maltese pup who works as a therapy dog with her sister Cici. But unlike Cici, who is a fan of walking around on all fours like most normal dogs , all Coco wants to do is to stick her paws in the air.

Her owner calls the pose ‘sitting pretty’, Coco loves nothing more than being papped by her owners and rewarded with a foodie treat.

‘The best part of being a therapy dog is seeing the kids’ faces light up with joy when we walk into their rooms,’ the sisters state on their website.

‘Online or in person, our goal in life is to spread love and joy.’

Coco is clearly the extrovert in the family

She loves any opportunity to make a scene

The cheese will melt just enough to stick to the inside of the Kong.

Or in the middle of the wilderness
