She is Toromi. She spends her time lazily and mochi-like.1 In their home, a new French bull dog puppy was born. Her name is "Toromi." As her namesake, her very slow and stupid movement is cute! She is like mochi to the touch and she comforts everyday.
とろみです。とろとろ、もちもち過ごしてます。 我が家にフレンチブルドッグのこいぬがやってきました。 なまえは『とろみ』。なまえ通り、とってもトロい動きがかわいい！ さわりごこちはおもちみたいにモッチモチで毎日いやされています。
"Toromi" means "thick" with the definition of slow, dense, and dumb. This little silly puppy looks and feels like mochi!
1. Mochi (餅) is a Japanese rice cake made of glutinous rice (not to be confused with gluten) pounded into paste and molded into the desired shape. In Japan it is traditionally made in a ceremony called mochitsuki. While also eaten year-round, mochi is a traditional food for the Japanese New Year and is commonly sold and eaten during that time.

3. An office lady, often abbreviated OL, is a female office worker in Japan who performs generally pink collar tasks such as serving tea and secretarial or clerical work. OLs are often unmarried and live with their parents well into early adulthood. Office ladies are usually full-time permanent staff, although the jobs they do usually have little opportunity for promotion, and there is usually the tacit expectation that they leave their jobs once they get married.
