Deep down, most of us knew it was going to come to this. As people get to completely make up their own gender, in a bid to be “different” someone was going to go too far. Well, now there is a man who has chosen to identify as a dog.
37-year-old Kaz James describes himself as a “full-time orange, brown and camo K-9.”
He regularly dresses in a dog body suit. He eats from a dog bowl. He is prone to bark, lick, or even bite friends. Hopefully he’s up to date on his shots.
“I didn’t ever feel like a human, I always felt like a dog that was really out of place,” the Salford, Greater Manchester resident shared with the Mirror. “I was known by my friends for saying hello to them by grabbing hold of the collar of their shirt in my teeth and biting or licking them, very canine-type behaviors. It was always how I was.”
While James says he has always felt this way, it wasn’t until later in life that he discovered there were others like him, prompting him to fully transition.
“I never really had a name for it, being a pup wasn’t a thing I knew about,” James said. “When I met other people like me I felt I could be myself.
“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 continued. “Through him, I knew other pups and learned a whole new language of this other world that I didn’t know about with a whole bunch of other people who were like me.”
James explained that finding an online “pup play” community is what gave him the boost to go from “part-time pooch to a confident canine.”
“It was a liberating moment knowing there were other people like me, having felt properly weird for the longest time,” James said.
It appears the the human pup scene gained notoriety after the 2016 documentary, “Secret Life of the Human Pups.”
