Meet Boomer, the dog trapped in a human body: Unemployed IT technician, 47, roams Pittsburgh dressed as a canine and barking at passing cars

Like many other dogs, Boomer loves nothing more than roaming his neighborhood, barking at passing cars and fellow canines before returning home for a bowl of biscuits and a nap in his kennel.

The only difference is that Boomer was born a human.

Gary Matthews, 47, has been living the life of a playful pooch for years - donning a white-and-grey costume made from paper with an over-sized collar proudly displaying his new name.

I work in IT. I see companies hiring guys we call “Petes” basically a warm body with a pulse who can plug in a desktop and power it on..

I guess even those companies have to draw the line at this guy.

He and the undergroundpanther from DUmmie land should meet up. Of course that sort of meet up might stop traffic as they try to see who is craziest.

“A dog trapped in a human body.” He’s not transgendered, he’s trans-specied. Has he been checked for rabies?

I know a procedure that would keep him from wandering and barking so aggressively.

I agree, and although this is over the line, it beats suicide by a long mile.

John Stuart Mill said it elegantly: "You had might as well take away a man's life as deprive him of his means of earning bread."

Stop immigration now. It is killing us - literally - in the IT and Semiconductor industries....

Though I have to say, I have been in Pittsburgh a LOOOOONG time, and I have never, ever seen this guy.

Generally our street crazies make themselves eminently visible downtown.

Most of what I see hired and working anywhere in support land are Petes. They seem to be preferred by state agencies.

My guess is he is a "Stillers" fan and lost a bet with a "Browns" fan and is "paying up"...

Are we really sure he didn't head up the development of the Obamacare website?

Yep, “who are we to judge” is the buzz phrase of the left to keep anyone from criticizing any bizarre behavior they want to promote.

This reminds me so much of a book I was forced to read back in High School, actually, a short story. The Metamorphosis, By F. Kafka, is a story were a single man about 30y/o living with his parents wakes up after a nap only to find himself transformed into a giant roach. I was so glad to be done with that assignment, the concept was more than a little disgusting and disturbing.

This guy here, I at first mistook to be a middle aged woman, with her hair in little bobs. He never indicates whether or not he’s housebroken, or pretends to still be learning what not to do.

Let’s see, self-identifies as a dog. Too bad he isn’t in California, then he really could use dog restrooms — i.e. fire hydrants, trees or fences, without any sort of problems.

Yeah, I see Boomer in his dog house, but who is that guy on the left; the 400lb plus young man in levis? Is he also imitating some sort of animal?

I can’t remember if this came from South Park, but a trans-gender joke was a character who was trans-species.
And now we have it in real life.
Or a guy trying to justify his SSDI/disability for mental illness.
