    "We've had baths with him and he even sleeps in our bed. Moko has prosthetics but he still struggles to walk on them so we often carry him around. To us, he's so beautiful and so happy that we don't mind waking up to his gorgeous face each morning when he sleeps in our bed", they told The Daily Mail.
