Tokki’s First Day in Texas

The Taekwondo outfit proves he is Korean.

I am not a fan of little dogs, I prefer them big and ferocious and invested in doing battle with me. But Mandi’s dog Tokki is a different story. Everyone loves him. The following is an account, by me, of Tokki’s first full day in the great state of Texas.

This is Tokki. Tokki is a recently transplanted Korean now living in the United States. Say Mung Mung, Tokki! Mung mung is how dogs bark in Korea. Yes, Tokki speaks Korean.


After arriving from Korea, Tokki had a brief stint in Ohio where he was thoroughly spoiled and fed human food (that is food for humans, not of humans) by Dave and Pauletta Hoopes.

The first rescue she did was when she was living in Korea. Tokki is a pro at flying and being squished under seats.

Obviously this meeting had no real impact on their lives, plus there was food!

The end. (though I am sure there will be further adventures with Tokki and Whiskey the Cat!)
