LocoSugar was written and is maintained by Walter Bender. 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.
