A man choose to dress as a dog over marrying his girlfriend .
Theatre technician Tom, 32, loves dressing as a puppy so much that when he was given the ultimatum by his fiancé Rachel about what he loved more she was unfortunately sidelined.
Tom – who was crowned Mr Puppy UK – is just one of the pups featured in Channel 4 ‘s latest documentary Secret Life of Human Pups , which explores the weird world of ‘human pups’ – grown men who enjoy dressing up as dogs.
“You disappear, you start chasing puppy toys and people give you ear scratches and treat you like a puppy. You disappear so much into the head space that you don’t stop to think but you crave it and you want it and you wish for it. It’s magic, it just really is genuinely magic,” he explains.
“I am strongly happily, proud of who I am and what I look like and I don’t care about what anyone else thinks.”
“He wanted to be able to explore different avenues and I just didn’t understand it. I didn’t want to understand it then.”It was him having to make a choice between what he wanted to do or me, and it was a better choice for him. He is two different things when he is Spot and when he is Tom, which is what I suppose I walked away from.”
