Each of us has a hobby which we use to let time pass while enjoying something. From the most common ones such as reading or surfing the internet, there are also peculiar ones just like trying to pretend to be a dog.
Yeah, there are people who pretend to be a dog as part of their daily life. Viral Thread reported that it turns out that there are a bunch of people who enjoy assuming a canine persona by wearing custom-made costumes that make them look like a big dog.
Tom Peters is one of these daring impersonators. He made an appearance on the British daytime TV show, This Morning to talk about his peculiar penchant for dressing like a puppy and also acting the part. He even goes by the name, “Spot” while he is at it.
Peters claims that his dog costume helps him to assume the persona of a pup, which he is very committed to.
As Spot he tries to, as authentically as possible, live his life as a cute, not-so-little pup. He does this by sleeping in a cage, walking on fours, and eating dog treats from a bowl.
He appeared on the show so that he could spread awareness for his rather unique lifestyle and so that he could address some of the misconceptions that people may have about those who assume alternative identities.
“People think of it as seedy and that no one should see it. But we’re not there to cause mischief, we’re there to have fun and literally be treated like a puppy,” Peters said.
Rachel Watson, the ex-fiance of Peters confessed that the couple called off the engagement back in 2008 because of Tom’s bizarre lifestyle, 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.
Watson was also the one who takes the role of Peters’ human companion.
