Dog House Blog, Freaky Funny Friday!


Molly The Wally!

Halloween has been and gone but sadly not in Pittsburgh USA where an imposter stalks the mean streets. For Gary Matthews, 47, has been living the life of a pooch for years, donning on a white and grey costume made from paper. He also wears an over sized collar proudly displaying his name Boomer.  Boomer loves nothing more than roaming his neighborhood, barking at passing cars and returning home for a bowl of biscuits and a nap in his kennel. He now eats dog food, slurps water from a bowl on the floor and sleeps in an indoor doghouse fitted with a bed. He doesn't wear his full costume all the time but when he wakes up in the morning he ties his long hair into two bunches atop his head for ears. And when he leaves the house, he always carries a squeaky toy under his arm. In 2010, he tried to legally change his name to Boomer the Dog but a judge refused, claiming that the change could put the public welfare at risk. Ronald W. Folino, an Allegheny County judge, said it could cause confusion in the marketplace and that it could prove problematic if Matthews was required as a witness to a crime. So if ever you are in Pittsburgh pop over and join Boomer for a walk and a bark..... on second thoughts run away real fast he's not real.



Have a freaky funny Friday all.



A big thank you goes to Freya over here for this great award. We will pop it onto our awards page with pride.

  8. What? Molly, we have no idea where you get these, but you always post the weirdest, funniest things!

    Thanks for stopping by; Sparkle suggested we use Bloglovin' and we've got it set up. It was far easier than we thought it would be. Let's just hope they don't throw their hat in the ring with Google too.

  14. I just read about Boomer last night... my mom and I watched a documentary a few months ago about this sort of thing, although Boomer wasn't in it. Apparently, there are people who truly believe that they are animals. They had people who thought they were a wolf, leopard, and raccoon. They dressed up and went out in the woods to frolic like animals. It was pretty weird.

  17. I wonder how Mr. Matthes will manage to drive a car as Boomer and in case he would land in jail, can he use the common potty room or have they to walk with him every morning? Congrats to your award! have a super friday, Molly

  24. That is so strange... Wonder if Boomer's a stray or if he has a family? (If so, they should keep him inside!)

  30. Freaky for sure. We all agree we would much rather run into the beautiful pup in that first pic than the sill guy Boomer:)

    Happy weekend.

  31. Another MOL for Brian's comment.
    We wonder if he carries his own supply of baggies when he goes for walks so he can pick up after himself. We also wonder if there are leash laws in his town? MOL!

    Purrs,
