Meet The Human Puppy, Who Lives Like a Domesticated Dog
We humans have a bunch of desire and hobbies in our daily lives. But, it is not necessary all will have a desire and hobbies like us they may have unusual hobbies to do. The hobbies may seem strange to you. But, if you are costume lover you may have heard about the man who wears a custom-made costume and lives like a domesticated dog.
Yes, we are talking about a grown man, Tom Peters, who is known as Human Puppy. Who dresses up like a dog. Tom Peters appeared on the British Daytime television show, This Morning: While on the Show, on which he talked about his unusual hobbies and dressing like a domesticated dog.
Human Puppy, Tom Peters Sleeps in a Cage, Walks on Floors
Peters thinks Puppy costume helps him to assume the persona of a pup. Do you believe, he sleeps in a cage, walks on floors exactly like a domesticated Dog. You will be shocked, he also eats dogs treat from a bowl.
If we talk about his life outside his costume, he works as a theatre technician. He appeared on the television show to tell people about his unique lifestyle that he embraced. His aim to come on TV was, he could address some of the misconceptions that people may have about those who assume alternative identities.
It’s not a sexual thing. It is a lifestyle, it’s just escapism, Peters Says
“People think of it as seedy and that no one should see it,” Tom said. “But we’re not there to cause mischief, we’re there to have fun and literally be treated like a puppy.”
Tom Peters says it’s a way to get away from the hectic and busy lifestyle. Peters quoted as saying, “it’s not a sexual thing. It is a lifestyle, it’s just escapism. To get away from money and the hectic lifestyle we have.”
However, he did suggest that it could be a “catalyst” and “lead on” to other things. “Because you relax and unwind, you could start from being a puppy and lead onto something in the bedroom,” he added.
Do you know, he has a partner in the form of his ex-fiance Rachel Watson. Rachel canceled the engagement because of his unusual lifestyle in 2008. She insisted that they are “best friends”. She then went on to say that they are closer now than they were when they were in a relationship.
She also admitted that the documentary, The Secret Life of the Human Pups, in which Tom featured helped her to understand a lot more about Tom and why he and others like him do what they do.
Well, for most people in the world, I think it will take more than a TV documentary for them to be able to truly comprehend a hobby that for your average man and woman would be pretty unthinkable.
I suppose if wearing a costume and pretending to be a domesticated dog brings Tom joy and a sense of purpose then who are we to judge? Besides, there are plenty of things people will do out of their priceless love for dogs. Things that for most of us dog lovers, might have us questioning just how dedicated we are to our own pooches compared to true dog fanatics.
Rachel Watson Says, Wish He had other Hobbies
But then again, in the words of Spot the dog, “We do roleplay as a child, so why can’t we do it as an adult?” Why not indeed, Spot, why not indeed?
Rachel Watson quoted as saying “I wish he had other hobbies, possibly something a bit more down to earth. But he is how he is. When he’s Spot he becomes confident, but when he’s Tom he won’t go to a bar and ask for a drink.” However, she added that they’ve ultimately ended up becoming closer than ever, “I’m proud of him for being true to himself. I miss him but we’re a lot closer and better.”
