This Woman Who Accidentally Took Her Dog To A Furry Convention Is The Purest Thing On Twitter

We all make mistakes, but that doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to laugh when someone else makes one, right? Because I can’t get over this woman who brought her dog to a furry convention thinking it was a gathering for pets.

Cheryl Wassus, a volunteer with Pets for Vets, and her one-year-old Bernese mountain dog, Link, stopped my the party to see what was going on. Little did she know that furries are not actually cute little animals but large anthromorphic animals.

It’s an honest mistake, and it’s also an epic one.

Cheryl’s son, New York Media producer Kenny Wassus, chronicled the events on Twitter, which turned out pretty perfect in my opinion.

And, like me, people were losing their shit.

There’s something so weirdly pure and wholesome about the whole thing, which makes it so much better.

Luckily, Cheryl took it all in stride.

“This is just a whole subculture I wasn’t even aware existed,” Cheryl told New York magazine. “When we set up tables and do promos and educate the public and do outreach, I had no idea the outreach was going to be other human … furry people. I guess you’re never too old to learn.”

Never too old, indeed. Way to be a good sport, Cheryl.

Besides, look at that face! As far as I’m concerned, no mistakes were made. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
