Toco spends KSh 2.8 million on costume
Known worldwide as “the human collie," Toco spent a whopping KSh 2.8 million on a custom-made collie costume to wear publicly and help him realise his dream of “becoming an animal”.

“The reason I chose a collie dog breed specifically is primarily because I like raising them,” dished the doggelgänger to the New York Post.
He added: “Secondly, because if it wasn’t a naturally large size breed, it wouldn’t look unnaturally disproportionate when worn by someone as a costume. Additionally, the collie’s long fur helps camouflage the human form discreetly.”
After wearing the costume in private for almost 12 months, Toco made his doggy debut earlier this summer; the video of his first walk went viral across multiple platforms.

After revealing his puppy proclivities to his family, Toco's next step is to find love.
“I think it would be great if something like this existed,” he said, speaking of a romance with a woman who also liked to dress up in a dog costume.

. “I would like to meet them," he said.
It is important to note that Toco is a “therian” — someone who identifies with a nonhuman species — and not a “furry,” referencing a subculture in which people dress up as dogs and other animals and may partake in sexual activity with one another.
Toco admits that spending much of his day on all fours is often physically strenuous but says it’s worth it for his sense of fulfilment.
“Rather than being tough or physically uncomfortable, the excitement and fun I receive from this experience are stronger,” he said.
Interacts with other canines
In another story, Toco made headlines for coming out as a 'dog', noting that it was his lifelong dream.
The Japanese man spent KSh 2.8 million ($20,000) on the costume that transformed him into a realistic border collie.
Toco went to the park to interact with other dogs and humans who were too happy to pet him.

The dog farted and produced sounds, which the couple found intolerable on their lengthy travel. The dog's use of the husband's legroom during the journey made it more uncomfortable, and his saliva covered his legs.
According to the dog's owner, he admitted to another passenger that he suffers from anxiety and needs the dog's company on the flight.
