So...this is a thing.
Apparently "pup play" is a thing. And I don't know how I feel about this.
Let's meet Kaz James. He's 37 years old and dresses up as a dog.
The Daily Mirror got to talk to him and learn more about all of this.
Kaz James is a store manager from Salford, Great Manchester and he says that he's felt like a dog since he was a kid. He was never able to understand who he is until he was in his late teens, when he let his inner dog out. It was around that time when he found an online community of other like-minded individuals.
James states, "The first time I heard the term of being a pup was through a pup I met online, he was the first person I met who was like me".
He then went on to state that he discovered more people just like him.
He continues, "It was a liberating moment knowing there were other people like me, having felt properly weird for the longest time".
What's this you ask? There's a community of these people? Let's watch a video of someone else who does a similar thing.
So, if you've been reading this article and haven't watched the video, you may be wondering what goes into pup play.
Just think of what a dog does. Now imagine a human doing it. This includes barking and carrying things in their teeth.
James also doesn't eat at the table when he is having dinner at his friends' houses.
"I don't eat at people's tables when I go to friends' houses. I can be a normal person in a restaurant, I'm trained and can deal with humans, but I don't like it, it makes me feel uncomfortable," James says.
You saw all those pictures above, right? How much do those suits cost?
Apparently James says that he has spent 2,000 pound-sterling on his custom-made dog suit. He also has a couple rubber suits that cost around 400 pound-sterling each.
I don't know.
I don't know!
On one hand, I'm a little disturbed by this, honestly.
On the other hand, when James says things like, "Having an entire fur or rubber suit of your character is a really great experience. It gives me the chance to be the best version of myself when I go out," I feel happy for him.
Just be you...I guess.
