boomer the dog
A man from my hometown of Pittsburgh dresses up like a dog and had his name legally changed to "Boomer The Dog." He's a furry, someone who is more comfortable pretending to be an animal than a human. To each his own!

If only everyone could find a way to be comfortable in his/her own skin in this crazy, mixed up world.
Here's the original newscast in which Pittsburghers first became acquainted with Boomer.
And here's the show in which this man based his costume/identity.
