Boomer The Dog
Hi Homer, it's hard to tell, the conditions are probably different for her, she has an outlet through a video channel, and a whole group of other Therians, and the texts written by those who came before her. Just by seeing her on PoeTV I think she's the star of her own show, with lots of friend and fan feedback, as it is for many now.
I had a love for Dogs and the idea of transformation into one that was fun until it got serious a few years later, to the point I was thinking of myself as a Dog and wanting to be one.
I didn't know anyone in communications, like at a TV station, in theater or an actor, to help me do something with my Dogginess, but I did get out there with my AM radio 'Dog Station' from the basement, while I was still in school, so I guess that was my form of Youtube.
That was really the name, "The Dog Station, Radio 200 at 1580 AM", that was my ID, and I was Boomer The Dog there. The 200 stood for 200 meter band. That was my personality extended, music lover and as a Dog personality, but I didn't bark too much about the details of being a Dog really, I was just a Dog DJ personality.
It was more like Wolfman Jack being a wolf, nothing about being a Were Dog or explaining it, just being a Dog and letting the audience take it the way they wanted to, which was probably a gimmick for radio.
Later when I met listeners, someone said they thought I might have been broadcasting from a kennel, as a night manager there, running a pirate radio station to pass the time.
In that way I think it would matter what IDGAF is like off stage and how strongly she actually feels as a Dog, to separate the social side from what you actually feel. I had a lot of alone moments with being a Dog, going for walks and wondering about it, playing Dog, drawing Dogs, spending time with pooches and then having the anthro idea come in, and then getting my outlet on radio.
I feel like I went on a long journey that was different enough that it was incompatible with the way people in my life did things. It was my own world and pretty much unedited by social interactions.
People didn't get how someone could be a Dog, or when I'd go on with passion about a movie like Shaggy DA and its meaning. They'd want to go to the hotel to play Pac-Man, chase girls and things like that.
