You know you have interesting friends when you get email like this:
"You won't believe what I just got off of ebay!I have to share the news, it's just so crazy. I just got a bent crystal x-ray spectrometer that was originally built by KMS Fusion for use on the Aurora inertial confinement fusion project. ... I was needing a radiation detector, [and] this one was built for an actual real fusion project back in 1990-91. ... This device is like finding a holy avenger +5 on ebay...."
I particularly like that the device is "bent." ;)

I will give thee a dog
which I got in Ireland.
He is huge of limb,
and for a follower equal to any able man.
Moreover, he hath a man's wit
and will bark at thine enemies
but never at thy friends.
And he will see by each man's face
whether he be ill or well disposed to thee.
And he will lay down his life for thee.
I especially like the part about my huge limb. ;)

- The “innate pup” (that would be me) is one for whom being a pup is a (basically) constant state… like being a slave, or being a Christian, or being gay, or being a African-American. It’s a part of who we are and how we interact w/ the world. When I do pup play (get down on all fours), it’s a matter of letting the hound that’s always under my skin come forward and psychologically take over for a while.
- The “play pup” (that would be Tebow) is one who enjoys pupping-out as a kind of fetish play… like w/ bondage, gear fetish, boot-blacking, or interrogation play. It’s essentially a fetishized role-playing game. I think for the play pup it’s primarily an opportunity to let-lose, be goofy and uninhibited, and… well, playful.
- The “furry pup” (our Pepper) is one that I don’t know much about. I learned some more about furries talking w/ Pepper at SITS (while looking at porn on his phone). For instance, I thought that furries were all about the costumes. I had no idea that there were non-costumed furries! I’m still learning about this furry thing… but one difference that Sir hit upon in his class is that apparently furries don’t have the D/s dynamic that leather-pups emphasize (the Handler/pup dynamic). Maybe that’s why the furry pups I know are the most unruly. Ever heard the expression, “He listens like a brick”? Yeah… when it comes to some of the furry pups I know, I think goldfish are more trainable.
- We don’t have a “cur” in our pack. The cur is really an odd-ball that maybe doesn’t even fir in as pup-play strictly speaking. Curs are submissives who enjoy being humiliated by being “forced” by a Dominant to behave like a “less than human” animal. “Get down on all fours and crawl, bitch!” Personally I consider this more humiliation play than pup play… but I’m NOT saying, “If you’re a cur then you’re doing it wrong.” What works for you, works for you… I just find it to be a very different play and a very different headspace from what we do.
