Guests visiting CityWalk at Universal Orlando Resort were introduced to a new robotic dog this week. Latte the robotic dog appeared outside Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen.

Jacques and Penelope are excited to introduce Latte, but Latte appears to be sleeping. The crowd is asked to jingle keys to wake Latte; she will think she’s about to take a car ride. Latte is sleeping just behind the line of planters.
