Looking for your daily fix of fluff? Look no further. Meet Chewy the Chow from the Philippines – or as his parents call him, Tabachewy.
Isn’t he precious???
Tabachewy is a play on words for the Tagalog term Tabachoy – or Tabatsoy –, which is often used to playfully and affectionately tease someone for having a bit of extra weight. Most Filipinos don’t find this insulting, since this is mostly used for little babies/kids or pets that are chubby and cute.
