What a curious looking puppy.. it's all glossy and shiny, and it squeaks with every step.. It's some sort of rubbery substance, though clearly animate, essentially living, in a way at least. It certainly seems hungry as it's chowing down on a box of latex exam gloves with no sign of difficulty or discomfort.
Up closer now, instead of the imagined scent of rubber or latex or similar shiny, squeaky or stretchy substances, you catch a whiff of sugary sweet chocolate and caramel, perhaps where the pup got his name from.
Then there's the rumored stories about critters similar to his description, and missing persons, and new toy critters showing up, shiny, squeaky, stretchy and sweet-scented.. Maybe it's best to keep your distance, in case there's any truth to those tales.
