Everyone lives a life outside of what they choose to show others. While some people are considered more extroverted, even they have hobbies or habits only they themselves know of. Some of these habits are good, some are bad, and yet some are just downright weird.

But what defines weird? If you’re committing an act which is slightly unconventional to societal norms, you’re weird. If you look out of the ordinary, you’re also labeled weird, and the list goes on and on. However, there are some people in this world, who go way beyond the word ‘weird’ and set new standards for themselves.

Recently, the world found out about something so outrageous that you have to read it at least three times to understand what exactly is going on. Are you ready? A community with a shared interest recently came into the spotlight after being hidden away for a while. Their similar trait? Well, they are normal everyday people who like to dress up as dogs and imitate the persona throughout their day.

No, we’re not talking about dressing up as a dog on Halloween. We’re talking about people literally having a leash on them, walking on four legs, and eating dog treats. The world was amazed when one of the members of this society decided to speak in public. The man in question here is 32 years old Tom Peters. He first appeared on the British TV show, ‘This Morning’. Tom made his first public appearance completely dressed the part of a small pup.

Tom admitted that he dresses up as a pup and his persona name is ‘Spot’. He claims that every time he dresses the part, he tries to be as authentic as possible. Carrying out day to day dog functions like sleeping in a cage, walking on all four legs and eating from a bowl. And the weirdest bit? When Tom’s not a pup, he resumes life as a normal 32 years old lighting and theatre technician.

But when something like that comes into the light, naturally the general public assumes that it has something to do with some sort of fetish. And this is exactly why Tom decided to speak about his persona publicly. Highlighting some and correcting the misconceptions people have about this stunt of his. He said that “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. 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 agree that going through with this idea may lead to other things. “Because you relax and unwind, you could start from being a puppy and lead onto something in the bedroom.”

Yet, there is still one thing left, which is puzzling you as you read this. That if he has decided to take on the persona of a pup, does he not need a caretaker? Well, you’re completely right. He does and he indeed has one. His caretaker is no one other than his ex-fiance Rachel Watson.

Although they called off the engagement back in 2008, Rachel claims that being there for Tom has brought them closer than ever. She also now understands why Tom does what he does. Tom recently featured in a documentary called The Secret Life of the Human Pups. It aims to convey an understanding to the general public about the actions of these individuals.

In conclusion, if Tom has chosen to live life like this, and if it doesn’t do anyone harm, then it’s not our place to judge him. Tom makes a good point saying that if children can roleplay, why can’t adults as well. It’s quite valid, especially from a pup’s perspective.
