What is the difference between puppies and furries? A Finale

This post is part 1 of 4 in the series Differences Between Puppies & Furries.

For the final installment of this series, I am dedicating my final words on the subject to the man who inspired me to ask the question in the first place.

Today our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Bodisama, who with his partner are the owners of Devil Dog Rubber. He passed away today, and though I didn’t know him well and was only hoping to more in the future, I did get a chance to talk with him recently and found him to be a truley wonderful man.

At the bondage party I attended a few weeks ago, during the late night hours sitting in the hottub with Bodisama, Rubberasylum and KinkiDiver the discussion turned to furries. It would seem that Bodisama had a growing respect for the furry community, and was trying to impart how much more vast the furry community is in this country than many of us other kinksters realize. Having heard similiar things from other friends, I was intrigued, though I felt that perhaps it could be the same as rubber or skins or gearheads becoming similarly ubiquitous over the years within the larger kink community, but Bodisama didn’t necessarily agree.

Since then I have been searching around on the internet, and talking with some pups and furries about the subject, and have since come to appreciate what he was trying to get across.

In no way can this be better illustrated my revelation surrounding furries than in the question that was first posed to me, and caused me to express an answer here. As someone who was (and still is in many ways) a puppy did I feel there was a difference between puppies and furies.

Now, I must confess, up until that moment I had held some prejudices about furries. While I have met some wonderful people both online and at events in general, most of the self identified furries I had met were not so… well not so. I had a couple of bad issues with stockerish behavior from some furries, and I have to admit that I took a few bad experiences to paint the entire community.

So my answer to the question is likley not very accurate, as my main goal when answering was to ensure that there was a difference, as I didn’t want to be compared in such a way.

Since then I have talked with a several more boys that are solely furries and have had the opportunity to learn more about them. I am not going put everyone up on a pedestal right now, as there are a still a few nut jobs out there, but the same could be said about people from other kinky streaks to.

What really brought a new perspective was some of my friends, people who I have come to value and appreciate, sharing with me personally and on this blog, that they are not only puppies but furries too. That helped me to realize what is really important: there doesn’t need to be a difference between the two, we are all in this life together.

The shitheads in any community shouldn’t ruin it for all the good people that are out there.

I think that one of the greatest compliments I can give to is that someone helped to challenge my beliefs and change my mind. That is exactly Bodisama did for me. Thank you for making me see the world a little differently.

You will be missed.
