The Human Dalmatian Who Enjoys Dog Treats
In 2016, “Tom from Hertfordshire” visited ITV’s This Morning under his preferred guise as a Dalmatian named Spot. Tom/Spot has spent more than $5000 on a costume that allows him to live as a dog. When he’s in dog mode, he plays fetch, sleeps in a cage, and eats real dog treats.
According to Tom, his desire to be a dog isn’t sexual – it has more to do with turning off the part of your brain that worries about strictly human concerns like bills and deadlines: “It means being able to escape from life and day-to-day business. It’s a chance to unwind and clear the mind. We do it as children. Why not as an adult?”
