Just When You Thought You've Heard and Seen Everything: Man Who Spent $14K to Transform Himself into Collie Steps Out for First-Ever Walk in Public, and related stories

Man who spent $14K to transform himself into collie steps out for first-ever walk in public:
The dog days are just beginning for this man.
A Japanese native has transformed himself into a canine after forking out more than $14,000 for a custom-made collie costume.
The private citizen, who goes only by Toco online, says the unusual garment has helped actualize his dream of “becoming an animal.”
Footage shared to Toco’s YouTube channel, where he boasts more than 32,000 subscribers, shows him clad in the costume as he frolics on a lawn, rolls on a floor, and plays fetch.
Toco has even uploaded a video of himself venturing out in public as a dog for the very first time.
Bystanders appeared to be in awe of the man’s doggy debut as he paraded down a busy street in the viral clip, which has racked up 1.7 million views.
Toco completed the costume with a harness strapped around his furry abdomen, but admitted he was “nervous” and “scared” of venturing out in public.
“Do you remember your dreams from when you are little? You want to be a hero or a wizard,” he wrote in the clip, describing his life-dog dog dream as seemingly “unrealistic.” --->READ MORE HERE
My first walkies! Japanese man who bought £12,000 dog costume finally goes outside... and immediately makes some canine friends as he settles into his new life as a collie:
A dog lover who has achieved internet fame for his desire to 'become an animal' has taken his first steps outside dressed head to toe in a bespoke collie costume worth more than £12,000.
Known only as Toco, the man spent two million Yen - which equates to £12,480 - on a lifelike costume to fulfil his lifelong fantasy of 'becoming an animal'.
In some of his most recent updates to his almost 30,000 YouTube subscribers, Toco was seen playing in his backyard - on all fours - and attempting to perform tricks in exchange for fake dog food.
But he has now ventured into the outside world to meet other people and animals for the first time.
In a pair of surreal videos posted to his YouTube channel 'I want to be an animal', Toco is first seen being taken out for a walk on a leash, and is later seen sniffing at other dogs in a park before rolling around on the floor. --->READ MORE HERE
