Radio and television presenter Thando Thabethe is known for her deep love for both her pets, Coco and Cody. The two West Highland Terriers do not live the life of any typical dog, in fact, they live better than the average South African. This past weekend, Thando took her puppies on vacation in Cape Town, and here’s what they got up to.
Thando Thabooty who is an interim breakfast host on the 947 Breakfast show taking over from Anele Mdoda who’s on a radio hiatus took her dogs on a fancy holiday in Cape Town where they had plenty of activities from running at the beach, enjoying poolside moments at the hotel to even enjoying their own meals at the Spur at the Cape Town airport.

Founder of local lingerie brand the Thabootys shared during her breakfast show with Frankie, Thembekile Mrototo, and Cindy Poluta on Friday on 947 moments from her recent trip with her two pets. The dog mom shared with so much excitement, “So I took my dogs on a glorious holiday to Cape Town this past weekend and we had a little flight delay on the way back, so we waited at the spur, I bought them some wings just to wait.”
Her cohost who also believe that Thando’s dogs are living a different life from many questioned this and wanted to know if the dogs are even allowed to enjoy chicken wings to which Thando responded, “Of course, they’re allowed to eat wings, cause most people would give the dogs just bones, but they deserve the meat on the bones as well.”
Co-host Frankie and many listeners were laughing endlessly at this but were also admiring Thando’s passion and love for her dogs. He even said, “these dogs live a different life.” Thando opened this conversation to a lot of the station's many listeners and many also shared their stories on how they treat and take care of their dogs.Some listeners shared that they cook for their dogs, some take them on spa dates, also holidays all the way to even getting the dogs birthday cakes.
