Born Gary Matthews, the retired technology worker and a self-confessed "nerd" thinks he is a dog. The 48-year-old wears a dog collar, eats dog food from a bowl his favorite is Pedigree and loves milk bones and dog cookies.
"I don't eat dog food every day," Matthews told ABCNews.com "It's a special thing for me to do once in awhile to get closer to feeling like a canine. I eat the canned kind. It's not bad -- it tastes OK. I eat regular human food, too, like pizza."

Sounds like a Furry.
Gee, I hope I get to retire at age 48!
I demand to see your papers!
Is this some kind of Gregor Samsaesque statement about what it was like to work for his company?
Can I ask a stupid question? How is this any different than males who feel that they are females, and vice versa? WE are lectured by liberals about the “trans-whatever” peoples, and that we have to be liberal towards demands such as allowing biological males into female locker rooms if such person self-identifies as female.
So, is it a stretch that a person feels that they are really not a human, but are a different species???
One girlfriend I had thought I was a dog.
Yup! He is:
Matthew has never dated and has no interest in marriage or children. "I have good friends and I substitute friendship for anything closer than that," he said. He also belongs to a group called "furries" people who dress like animals and meet at clubs around the world. "I have a group of fans, people who perform as mascots they are a nerdy group like trekkies and like dog play," he said.
that’s ok Boomer. most good doggies just love pizza anyway
Will the Senate protect him from discrimination? ENDA for furries.
I hope he stays away from the cops!
He best be staying away from the police. Many seem to have a taste for shooting dogs.
Stay away from police officers.
Some people will do anything for an ObamaCare waiver!
