THE MAN WHO WANTS TO LIVE LIFE AS A DOG
A man who wants to be a dog says he spends his days running around on all fours, eating food out of a bowl, and chasing cars. Gary Matthews, 47, an unemployed IT technician in Pittsburgh, dons a shaggy dog costume each day to become his alter ego, Boomer. He also sleeps inside a giant kennel which he keeps inside his more traditional human home, reports the Huffington Post. Matthews says it was the Disney comedy The Shaggy DA that first gave him the idea of living as a dog. At first, he named himself after Pongo, from 101 Dalmatians, but changed his canine name after becoming a fan of a TV show called Here's Boomer at the age of 12. "I looked up to Here's Boomer and picked up some of his personality and behaviors," he said. "When I bark, what you hear is the result of listening to my TV tapes and learning Boomer's voice from the soundtrack. Things like that have combined with my personality to make me a better dog."
