Credits

LocoSugar was written and is maintained by User:Walter. He was inspired in part by CucoXO. Ignacio Rodriguez came up with the name for the activity. The dog in the pictures is named Clementine. She is a goldendoodle and belongs to my daughter and son-in-law. She is very friendly, but also very bouncy. She loves to swim and chase XOs.
