Life Is Not That Without A Pet

Woman Unaware That ‘Furry Convention’ Is Not For Pets, Takes Her Therapy Dog There And Becomes Famous

expand

New York Media senior producer Kenny Wassus got a kick when he realized his mother went to the Motor City Furry Convention, thinking it was an event for pets, and brought her therapy dog Link with her. The pup being furry himself, it seemed like a logical choice.

Cheryl Wassus, Kenny’s mother, said: “I learned so much about this whole new culture of people who get together and dress up in furry costumes. I had no idea… It was a little embarrassing at first because Link was just a little curious why people were wearing tails, so he was doing some serious tail-sniffing and checking out people.”

Once the doggie got used to the environment, Link seemed to be having a blast. The two even ended up participating in a panel at the con, which raised $10,000 for Pets for Vets, an organization that connects dogs with war veterans.

As for Cheryl, she isn’t planning to get into furry culture scene herself: “No, I don’t think so. No. You know, you get a little older, a little menopausal, and being in that many layers and layers of fur. No need to be overheating [in a furry costume]. I’m good.”
