6 little secrets of the Pudding dog

What kind of dog is Pudding Dog actually?
It is a Golden Retriever! Because in the design process, Golden Retriever and Labrador are the most popular in the dog category. The character is designed to be a furry, rounder figure, and the image will be more lovely, so the designer finally chose the Golden Retriever as the design blueprint for Pudding Dog.

Why is there a brown hat on the Pudding Dog?
Is it related to his name? Because pudding is “yellow, round, furry”, plus the brown hat will be more like the top with syrup. The hat was put on the Pudding Dog by the owner’s sister. Everyone thought that he was very similar to the real Budian, so from that time on, everyone called him Purin, which means Pudding in Japanese.

Recently, it seems that a beautiful woman named Macaroon appears frequently around Pudding Dog. Is she rumored to be a girlfriend of Pudding Dog?
No! But Pudding Dog seems to be very interesting to her!

Why are Pudding Dog friends named after dessert?Is it because he loves dessert too much?
Not only is it a dessert, he likes to eat anything, so Sanrio Japan’s design team designed the name of Pudding Dog with a variety of cute and delicious food.

Why does Pudding Dog love to sleep, but at the same time he also loves to do Pudding gymnastics?
This is because Pudding Dog wants to diet, so he created the Pudding Dog gymnastics dance, so that everyone can dance happily and lose weight.

Pudding Dog has a variety of shapes, and the shape of wearing pumpkin pants is familiar. What is the relationship between Pudding Dog and pumpkin pants?
Because most of the Pudding Dog 2D is not designed to be dressed, but the Pudding Dog in the theme park is different, Sanrio Japan’s design team wants to dress up Pudding Dog. They think that ordinary T-shirts or tops are not attractive enough. At that time, cute pumpkin-shaped trousers are very popular in Japanese stores. It is best to find Pudding Dog with pumpkin pants. The shape is also very cute, so the pumpkin pants. It became one of the clothing of Pudding Dog.
