Trans-Species? Men Who Live Like Dogs Featured in Documentary on ‘Human Pups’

Pups-compressedMANCHESTER, U.K. — In the midst of national discussion on transgender issues, the trend of men dressing up and behaving like dogs, known as “pup play,” was recently discussed in a new documentary on “The Secret Life of Human Pups.”

The documentary, produced by Britain’s Channel 4, features a variety of English men who live like dogs in their private lives—a movement that often involves living with a handler, dressing in a rubber canine suit, barking to communicate, fetching balls, having your belly rubbed and other dog-like behavior.

“In the U.K., there are estimated to be 10,000 human pups: men who dress in elaborate dog suits and behave like dogs. This remarkable documentary explores their hidden world,” a description of the production outlines.

Director Guy Simmonds says that he wasn’t aware that the concept was so prevalent in the country until researching the matter in greater depth. He decided to film a documentary on the subject after running across online photos of men engaging in pup play.

“On the surface you’d think it was a few people dressing up as dogs behind closed doors. But the more we researched it, the more surprised I was to learn how large the community was in the U.K.,” he told Newsweek. “They’ve got their own social networking sites, events and competitions.”

Among those included in the documentary is a 32-year-old man named Tom, also known as Spot, who enrolls in the Mr. Puppy Europe competition in Antwerp. Tom states that men such as himself like to dress as a dog as a means of escapism from the pressures of adulthood.

“You’re not worrying about money, or food, or work,” he explains. “It’s just the chance to enjoy each other’s company on a very simple level.”

“Life is getting more hectic nowadays, so much pressure on work and life,” a 42-year-old man who goes by the name Chip explains. “Some people drink, there’s drugs. … You’ve got to be civilized in our society. When you’re in puppy mode, all that goes away. We don’t care about money; we don’t care about what job you’ve got, or the bigger car.”

Psychotherapists opine that the desire to belong in pup play circles may stem from childhood trauma.

The men interviewed in “The Secret Life of Human Pups” have common 9-5 jobs, but after leaving work, they regress to their puppy phase.

“The only time I’m not a pup is during work,” one man explains. “My partner comes home from work and he’s like, ‘Hey pup,’ and I’m like ‘Woof!’”

However, some assert that being canine is actually a part of their identity.

“Even when I worked in PC World I would sometimes walk up to people and nip at their shirt,” a man named Kaz, who eats out of a dog bowl when at home, told the Guardian. “I got in trouble once; someone walked into the PC repair center and I had part of their dad’s computer in my mouth.”

Tom’s desire to live like a dog resulted in a broken engagement as his girlfriend Rachel was uncomfortable with the concept. He now lives with his handler, Colin.

“I wouldn’t say it was the catalyst, but it was the straw that broke the camel’s back,” he states. “Then I had this moment of panic because a puppy without a collar is a stray; they don’t have anyone to look after them. I started chatting to Colin online and he offered to look after me. It’s a sad thing to say, but there’s not love from the heart in me for Colin—but what I have got is someone who is there for me and I’m happy with that.”

David, who goes by the name Bootbrush, lives with his “handler” as well.

“Some pups are solo, of course, but for me the puppy identity is focused on the bond between me and Sidney, my handler. I’ve been collared to him for 10 years. If anyone comes near him I growl like a little bull terrier,” he explains. “And I’m a people-pleaser in my human life. I get a great deal of pleasure from making other people happy.”

Tom says that, like homosexuality and transgenderism, he just wants the lifestyle to be affirmed.

“It feels like you can be gay, straight, bisexual, trans and be accepted,” he told the Guardian. “All I want is for the pup community to be accepted in the same way.”

However, not everyone approves of the idea as some who have learned of the movement or have seen the “Human Pups” documentary have called it “weird,” “bizarre” and “confusing.”

As previously reported, earlier this year, a 20-year-old Norwegian woman who wears fake cat ears and a tail told reporters that she feels like a cat trapped in a human body.

“I realized I was a cat when I was 16 when doctors and psychologists found out what was ‘the thing’ with me,” she said. “Under my birth there was a genetic defect.”

“You are born like this?” the interviewer with NRK P3 Verdens Rikeste Land asked.

“Yes, I’m born like this,” Nano responded. “Born in the wrong species. … It’s obvious I’m a cat when I start purring and meowing and walking around on four legs and stuff like that.”

Former U.S. Secretary of State Daniel Webster once said, “If the power of the gospel is not felt throughout the length and breadth of the land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without mitigation or end.”

        They already do. When what they are currently doing doesn’t satisfy them as only the One True God can do, they have to up the ante. God gives them over to their lusts and to their bodies. They are basically dead men/women walking. And the sad part is that they can’t see past their lusts and desires. What is evil is now justified as good and what is good is now called evil. God is still on the throne.

            Yes there is something wrong with people who do that. Jesus died on the cross and shed his blood, he paid the price for our sins and defeated Satan already. If you feel evil around you, call out the name of Jesus.

    Rich bored people’s thirst for amusement is endless. Don’t let them go to the Asian nations where people capture and eat dogs. These people should work for dog species’ welfare around the world instead of doing this.

    • Josey

      Those Asian nations are laughing their heinies off at this ridiculousness…There are people going hungry and w/out clean water and this is what some rich ppl find to do with their time, unbelievable. Maybe Obama will invite them to the rainbow house to congratulate them or give them a courageous award for being who or whatever they think they are…bizarro land

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        Real hunger will cure the mentally-ill secular West. Secular Westerners are being bored of life from having everything; that’s their problem. Rich people are unhappy people indeed, but they must never push their insane sexual depravity upon the poor or the children. No submission to today’s rich pervs. Thank God the Westerners were not pervs but only average racists when they possessed slaves; things would have been real nightmarish if today’s Westerners possessed slaves. The West needs Christianity to be civilized.

        Need to correct something here.2 Thessalonians is talking about THE lie the Anti-Christ brings to the earth and the claims he makes.Most will fall for the delusion.

    Let’s just hope Obama doesn’t hear about this. He might grant them every tree in the neighborhood. Watch, we’re going to see a P added LGBTQP and they’re going to cry discrimination and demand all companies remove their “No pets allowed” sign.

      Unfortunately, In today’s America, sadly this sounds plausible!! (EDIT)

      haha, hadn’t thought of that one. Oh the discrimination that is toward the trans-species 😉

        Same here. It’s already written that all this will happen. I dont remember reading about Trans-species but in the bible in Romans it does say people will make up their own stuff that others will accept.

  • Josey

    In New York I read that there are 31 things a person can claim to be now. More insanity in bizarro world.

    • The Last Trump

      I thought I read somewhere that facebook now has 48 or more genders!!
      I’m not sure how you can go from male and female to 48!!!!!?????
      But leave it to the liberal extremists in Bizarro Amerika to find a way.
      These people have flat out lost their minds.

    • Ambulance Chaser

      What does that mean? “Things a person can claim to be?” Where? To whom? For what purpose?

  • Gal 5:22-23

    Please. This is about a game people are playing, they don’t think they are a different species, they don’t want to be a different species, they just are playing a game like a wife wearing a french maids costume. Its cosplay. Its being silly, not a ‘species identity’.

    • Pererin

      Don’t be so hateful! How dare you downgrade and belittle how these these people feel. They state they were born that way, who are you to challenge them?

      • Gal 5:22-23

        The only one that thinks they are ‘trans-species’ is the cat woman who was brought into the discussion about puppy play solely for that purpose.

        And while every human has all the genetic information to be attracted to any sex or be any gender that can’t be said for another species.

        • TheBottomline4This

          You are wrong. If we’re suppose to let some in, you cannot prohibit those who may think they are trans-species. Sure some or most may be “playing a game”, but for those who aren’t…how bigoted, narrow minded, intolerant and judgmental can you be to say…”that can’t be said for another species”. What a load of double standardness you are showing. Supporting some other choices people are making, but being judgmental toward the trans-species. smh

      • Ambulance Chaser

        Did they state that?

        • Pererin

          Yes, read the article.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Read the article yourself, it was the “cat lady” that said that.

          • Pererin

            Which was part of the article was it not? It’s just hilarious that you have a problem with the dog people being ‘born that way’ but cat lady, perfectly acceptable!

          • TheKingOfRhye

            What did I say about anyone being born any way? I just thought your statement “THEY state THEY were born that way” was misleading. Ambulance Chaser asked “did THEY state that?” to which you said yes.

          • Pererin

            Which part did you find misleading? The article was clear in its meaning. So now you’re ignoring the cat lady?

          • TheKingOfRhye

            What you said was misleading. Or, just flat out wrong. “They” is plural. That, in this story, would mean the “human pups”…none of whom said anything about if they were born that way or not in the story.

          • Pererin

            No it’s you who are are flat out wrong:

            “Tom says that, like homosexuality and transgenderism, he just wants the lifestyle to be affirmed.”
            “It feels like you can be gay, straight, bisexual, trans and be accepted,” he told the Guardian. “All I want is for the pup community to be accepted in the same way.”

            They clearly align themselves with the LGBT crowd, demanding equal rights. What do you think the reason is for those demands? The same as the LGBTers, the belief that they were born that way, that they had no choice in how they feel.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Well, that’s reading a lot into someone’s statement. The guy said he wants his community to be accepted. He didn’t say anything about being born any way. You can’t just jump to that conclusion. Maybe he doesn’t think he was, maybe he does. I don’t know that, and you don’t know that.

            Personally, I think it’s not quite that simple….maybe people aren’t born a certain way, but still have no choice about certain things like their sexual orientation.

            How is “all I want is for the pup community to be accepted in the same way” a DEMAND, anyway?

          • Pererin

            Maybe to you but not to me. It’s clear they want to be identified in the same way as LGBTers hence my comment.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            I’m not making any claims that anyone is ‘born that way’ myself. Maybe they are, maybe they’re not, I don’t know, I don’t care honestly…

    • TheBottomline4This

      You are wrong. If we’re suppose to let some in, you cannot prohibit those who may think they are trans-species.

    If truly there are a body of Christ, they rather than being snobs, would support and talk those who truly believe in Christ Jesus into getting married and therein living a life of Christ instead of burning and or committing the same sexual immorality they repented, even if it is without no celebration ( 1 Corinthians 7: 1-2). If truly there is a body of Christ, why go on making church wedding celebration and traditional marriage rites a true sense of marrying and living right. For Christ sake, are there not those who gave up the riches of this world for the sake of the Cross?

    If a man or a woman, they are born again and they do have sex from one man to another or from one woman to another as the case may be, and they are single, they have no spouse, and eventually they wed in the church and they are drafted into church holiness board and their life style of jumping from one woman to another or their life style of jumping from one man to another is certify sinless by the church authority and pastoral associates, where therein is the space for Holy Spirit? If a man or a woman is suspended because the woman is pregnant, is their sin pregnancy? (Ephesians 5: 3). Why did Christ die on the Cross, what is it for, is it for alcoholism, revelry, lying and sexual immorality? Hypocrites Sodom and Gomorrah!

    (He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the Lord). Proverbs 17:15

    ‘”Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.’ Matthew 23: 15

    ‘But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.’ Matthew 23: 13

    ‘And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake.’ Genesis 18 :32

  • Joanne13

    I’d say that this kind of behavior is linked to ‘sadomasicism ‘ or the desire to be debased by another human being…. which is very sick (literally… psychosis) and VERY sad. It’s nothing new but it’s finally being brought out into the light where people can be made aware. That last paragraph certainly puts it in to proper perspective… darkness is certainly prevailing at the end. I truly believe we are nearing the end of the age and I’m joyfully waiting for the appearance of my Lord in the sky!

    • TheKingOfRhye

      What’s so “sick” about sadomasochism, exactly? If the parties involved are all consenting, what’s the problem?

      There are even Christian BDSM groups, you know. Not to mention that whole “Christian domestic discipline” thing….which they say isn’t about anything sexual, but I kinda doubt that…..

      • Amos Moses

        “There are even Christian BDSM groups,”

        LOL! ………… again ……….. oxymoron ………. contradiction in terms ………

        • TheKingOfRhye

          Why is it a contradiction? Let’s say we’re talking about a monogamous, married, man-and-woman, Christian couple, who enjoy having sex with each other. You’d say there’s nothing un-Christian about that, right? What makes it different if they’re participating in some BDSM stuff with each other, if that’s what they both like?

          • Amos Moses

            SMH ……………………

          • TheKingOfRhye

            I’ll ask you again: what makes BDSM and Christianity an oxymoron or a contradiction? You might think it’s so obvious that you shouldn’t have to mention it, but I’m surely missing it, so spell it out for me. I’m actually quite curious as to why you think that is so.

          • Amos Moses

            Abuse of another, for whatever reason, voluntary or otherwise ……………. not christianity ….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            How does something qualify as “abuse” when both people involved enjoy it? What exactly is the definition of “abuse of another” here, anyway? Is that in the Bible somewhere?

          • Amos Moses

            “What exactly is the definition of “abuse of another””

            BDSM ……….

            If it is voluntary ……….. It is pursuit of fleshly desire …….. not pursuit of God ……….

            Galatians 5:16–18,
            But I say, walk by the Spirit, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you would. But if you are led by the Spirit you are not under the law.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            So, is what you’re saying that it’s not BDSM in particular, it’s just enjoying sex in general that’s bad? Even if it’s strictly limited to one’s wife or husband?

          • Amos Moses

            The word abuse has taken many meanings over time. Immediately, most assume abuse involves anger or some form of physical violence. This is a simplistic and often misleading view of abuse. Anger is an emotion God gave us to alert us to problems. Righteous anger is not sinful and should not be associated with abuse. Anger mishandled can certainly lead to a sinful, abusive response, but it is a sinful heart, not the emotion of anger, that is the root cause of abuse.

            The word abuse is used to describe the mistreatment or misuse of virtually anything. We speak of abuse of trust, drugs, institutions, and objects. These forms of abuse are sinful for the same reason that abuse directed at people is sinful. Such mistreatment is motivated by selfishness and results in damage and destruction. People abuse others for a variety of reasons, but selfishness underlies all abuse. We tend to lash out when things do not go our way.

            BDSM is not love …………… it is selfish desire ………

          • TheKingOfRhye

            What makes BDSM any more of a ‘selfish desire’ than any other form of sexual activity?

          • Amos Moses

            It has nothing to do with love ………………

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Not when two people who love one another do it? That does happen, you know.

          • Amos Moses

            No …………. it does not ……….. that is not love ………… it is not a biblical definition of love ….. BDSM is not love …………… it is selfish desire ………

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Again, why? What makes it more selfish than anything else?

          • Amos Moses

            1 Corinthians
            13:4 Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; Love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
            13:5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
            13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
            13:7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
            13:8 Love never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
            13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
            13:10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
            13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
            13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
            13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

        God made man & woman equal. Men and women (husband & wife) are equal in God’s eyes and should treat each other as such. If your fantasizing with your wife (or husband) that they’re your slave or that you should whip them, punish them, DEBASE them in any way you are NOT treating them as an equal. It doesn’t matter if the behavior is consensual or not. God expects a husband & wife to treat each other (at ALL times) with respect. There’s no true respect in BDSM. I know that’s not what you want to hear but it’s true just the same.

        • Joanne13

          I’m NOT saying that role playing is wrong per se. You simply need to be aware of what you’re pretending. A husband & wife can certainly enjoy sex in many ways. But to pretend (or to actually treat) each other in a demeaning way is not the same.

        • TheKingOfRhye

          I still disagree. Remember, what we’re talking about isn’t JUST consensual. There’s more to it than that, when both people involved enjoy it, and are seeking that kind of thing out.

          I forget where I read it, but there’s an old joke….the masochist says to the sadist, “Beat me!” The true sadist answers, “NO!”….

          • Joanne13

            If a husband and wife actually enjoy BDSM behavior they are simply NOT in the right place spiritually with God. If you’re relationship with God is right then your actions at ALL times will be pleasing to him. Like I said pretending to debase or harm each other does NOT give the Creator any glory and ALL we do should be to give Him glory. It’s up to you if you accept that or not. But you certainly need to consider it. If you’re a Christian and I’m supposing you are since your discussing this then you should very sincerely, with an OPEN heart to the Holy Spirit’s leading ask God to reveal His truth to you. If you do that and still harbor ANY desire to do as you have been God will know that. We need to be ‘right’ before God so please consider it.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            I’m not a Christian, just curious as to why people think it’s not compatible with BDSM, I guess.

          • Joanne13

            Then I hope I’ve helped you see how this isn’t compatible with Christianity. And I’d also invite you to consider becoming a Christian. I’ve lived apart from God and as His child for many decades now. Having lived a very ‘worldly’ life and a life in God’s grace I can find NO reason to return to that former life. Not proselytizing here… simply wanting you to know you’re welcome. John 3:16,17 :o)

          • TheKingOfRhye

            You say God made men and woman equal….yet, I’ve heard a lot of people say the Bible says the woman should be subservient to the man in a marriage, and so forth. Ephesians 5:22…”Wives, submit yourself unto your own husbands, for the husband is the head of the wife”, etc.

            Maybe I’m kind of answering myself here, but I’ll say people are still equal when one WILLINGLY gives submission to the other…

          • Joanne13

            Men and women ARE equal in God’s eyes! They both need salvation to enter Heaven upon death. They both suffer punishment from sin. They both have been offered Salvation through Jesus and forgiveness for their sins, etc.

            Some times things are stated in scripture that’s more geared to the specific time in history when it was stated (like Paul saying women shouldn’t speak in church, etc). It’s debatable as to why Paul made this rule with one theory being that those women had come out of religions that had women deities and the women ruled the worship. So they came into their new Christian services expecting to do the same thing & they were disrupting those services because they wanted to rule them as they did in their old religions. That didn’t work since it is true in Christianity men have a more vocal presence in those services.

            Concerning Ephesians 5… Paul’s comparing a husband & wife’s marriage in it’s similarity to Jesus’ relationship with His followers. The following passage puts that into great perspective (it’s the Amplified translation I’m including below… I like the way it’s explained). The passage breaks it down pretty well in explaining that the husbands relationship with his wife is to be as Jesus’s relationship with His ‘bride’ or ‘wife’, that being ‘The Church’ which is composed of all truly, born again believers, male & female. Here it is if you have time…

            Ephesians 5:22-33 (AMP)
            Marriage Like Christ and the Church

            22 Wives, be subject [a]to your own husbands, as [a service] to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as Christ is head of the church, Himself being the Savior of the body. 24 But
            as the church is subject to Christ, so also wives should be subject to
            their husbands in everything [respecting both their position as
            protector and their responsibility to God as head of the house].

            25 Husbands,
            love your wives [seek the highest good for her and surround her with a caring, unselfish love], just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 26 so that He might sanctify the church, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word [of God], 27 so that [in turn] He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy [set apart for God] and blameless. 28 Even so husbands should and are morally obligated to love their own wives as [being in a sense] their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own body, but [instead] he nourishes and protects and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 30 because we are members (parts) of His body. 31 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall be joined [and be faithfully devoted] to his wife, and the two shall become [b]one flesh. 32 This mystery [of two becoming one] is great; but I am speaking with reference to [the relationship of] Christ and the church. 33 However, each man among you [without exception] is to love his wife as his very own self [with behavior worthy of respect and esteem, always seeking the best for her with an attitude of lovingkindness], and the wife [must see to it] that she respects and delights in her husband [that she notices him and prefers him and treats him with loving concern, treasuring him, honoring him, and holding him dear].

            Footnotes:
            Ephesians 5:22 The wife to her husband, not to men in general; not as inferior to him, nor in violation of her Christian ethics, but honoring her husband as protector and head of the home, respecting the responsibility of his position and his accountability to God.

            Ephesians 5:31 The bond between husband and wife supersedes all other relationships.

    Only in the UK. I had a ……an acquaintance who lives in the UK berate me and call me a neanderthal because I support gun rights. She said, “Over in the UK we are not barbarians. We have banned all guns. If the young hoodlums wish to fight they use knives and clubs”……Yep they are so much more civilized over there.SMH

    I think that, since you are all clearly brain washed, that you are ALL nuts and really have no place from which to judge others, especially since they are not hurting anyone. It makes me wonder what you all do behind closed doors. Yikes.

    Wow….most of the people commenting on this story didn’t actually read the article…and/or have never heard of anything like this before. And, for that matter, the headline is seriously misleading. These people aren’t actually claiming to be ‘trans-species’, you know….

      Sure, but why get in the way of a good rant? Facts be darned.

  • Gena B

    Men are such dogs aren’t they? This article just leaves way too many opportunities for silly comments. It is so ridiculous it’s hilarious. What in the world makes these people think that their lives were so boring or insignificant that living as another species is better? Or the guy who says he was “born like this” because he meows, he is a cat. And he wants acceptance. Okay, I accept that ‘you’ believe you are a cat, and that you like the rest of your faux fur friends need some really good meds. If you are not for Christ then you are against him, and Satan is sifting these people around using them as puppets, they have no idea how much they are being used and manipulated by the dark, sad.

  • Nichola Ryan

    This doesn’t have anything to do with religion – why go all gospel on this – it is about unusual behaviour – it doesn’t signify any kind of biblical moral decline – just human absurdity which will be around as long as there are people in the world.

    So now people doing something in thier spare time that makes them feel better is Wrong? Wow. How judgemental will you get? I didn’t watch the show so I don’t know all they talked about but I’ve done plenty of research on the subject of pet play. It allows a temporary relase from the stresses of life. Sure the problems are still there and they have to return to them eventually but it can be a stress releif. It can be a very good beneficial thing.
