Real-Life Corgi Befriends Life-Sized Pokémon Yamper Plush
posted on by Kim Morrissy
A Japanese couple posted an adorable video last month of their pet corgi, named Mugi, who recently celebrated his second birthday by getting a new friend: a life-sized plush of the Pokémon Yamper.
Yamper is an electric-type dog Pokémon that is inspired by the real-life corgi, so it was bound to get along with Mugi.
The owners have previously posted videos of Mugi playing with a smaller sized Yamper plush, as shown below. Mugi was very attached to this plush, even going as far as to sleep with it and get possessive of it.
The life-sized Yamper would have cost 5,280 yen (approximately US$50) from the Pokémon Center in Japan, and the smaller one would have cost 1,815 yen (approximately US$17). Between the two purchases, Mugi's owners have clearly shown themselves to be doting parents.
The couple also maintain a Twitter account where they regularly post cute pictures and videos of their dog.
