Mom Brings Her Therapy Dog To ‘Furry Convention’ Thinking It Was For Actual Animals

(PCM) Hilariously the mother of New York Media producer Kenny Wassus, Cheryl Wassus accidentally brought her therapy dog name Link to a “furry convention” in the city thinking it was an event for actual dogs and cats, not just people dressed up like them!

When Cheryl heard that the Motor City Furry Convention was headed to New York and the proceeds from the event ticket sales were going to Pets For Vets (a charity that pairs dogs with veterans) she jumped to the conclusion (a little too soon) that the event would be one that was for animals. They are furry … right?

Cheryl immediately signed up to volunteer at the convention, as she works for Pets For Vets and brought her dog Link along as well! Well, the two of them were a big hit, just not quite in the way that Cheryl was expecting.She absolutely no idea! Kenny thought his mother’s experience was hilarious and shared several photos of her experience.

Cheryl claims she ended up learning quickly what the event was all about, however she ended up being completed fascinated by the convention overall and took time to educate herself about the “furry” culture. She told NY Mag, “I had no idea I was walking into Furry Con. It was a little embarrassing at first because Link was just a little curious why people were wearing tails, so he was doing some serious tail-sniffing and checking out people. They weren’t offended, though, they just embraced him. It was all good. Just a real interested community.”

The convention ended up raising about $10,000 for Pets For Vets which is amazing and Cheryl even participated in a panel or two during her visit to the con. Definitely a funny misunderstanding. We are so glad to hear it worked out in the end!
