KoKo, the Pet of the Day
Name: KoKo
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Breed: Shiba Inu
Home: Glendale Heights, Illinois, USA
   This is Hitachi Ko Hime (KoKo for short). She is a two year old Shiba-Inu from Japan. She only weighs 25 pounds, about knee-high, a little ball of fuzz. Her name means "the little princess," which she doesn't let you forget for a minute. She is extremely cuddly and loveable, but only when she is in the mood. She loves to give kisses, but watch out, she might slip you the tongue if your mouth is slightly ajar. She will also hold your bare foot between her little paws, and lick your toes till they fall off. In this picture she demonstrates her oral fixation once again with a piece of willow bark.
