ICYMI Woman Thinks Detroit “Furry Convention” Is a Dog Event, And Takes Dog

Cheryl Wassus wanted to take her therapy dog out for a wonderful happy experience.  Cheryl’s involved with the Pets For Vets organization, and was thrilled to see that the charity was selected as the beneficiary for the Motor City Furry Con.  So thrilled, in fact, that she wanted to take her dog to it – without looking into what a “Furry” was.  The convention, as it turns out, was a gathering of people who enjoy dressing up in animal costumes (kinda like amusement park characters).

It’s like a fetish thing.  Word is that Cheryl’s dog was confused, but still managed to have a good time.
