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. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
