I like my dog and all, but Tonkey’s rise to fame has got me wondering what she’s got, that I don’t. 8 weeks ago I created Tonkey her own Instagram account for the sole purpose of making friends myself. The way it was supposed to go down: post photo of cute dog, cute dog attracts good-looking friends, good-looking friends want to hang out with me.
But I’ve created a monster— like Victor to Frankenstein— and now Frankenstein’s famous, leaving her creator alone in the shadows. I want to wish my dog nothing but the best in her future endeavours…but it’s tough when your cuddle buddy has left you to eat her dust.
If I could say one thing to my dearest Tonkey, it would be this: I love you, dogchild, don’t forget we started from the bottom; I am trying my best to be happy for you.
Meet Tonkey: she is 100% Shar Pei…
…though many others say she is 100% bear
She lives with her mom, dad, and sister Maxi, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Tonkey has a face that could melt the heart of an ogre
She can also dress to impress
And her hiccups are too adorable
When we go to IKEA she enters “teddy stealth mode”- so we don’t get kicked out
She loves to play peek-a-boo…
And showering is still scary for her
Getting down the stairs is not easy
She makes friends wherever she goes
Tonkey’s face at maximum smoosh. Adorable!
She’s already learning how to fetch the ball!
