Dog Walk Turns Into A Ramp Walk


Cori Berman, a 24-year-old woman, felt frustrated with her neighbors for constantly staring at her during the dog walks. She needed a solution to stop the glances, and her idea was to dress up as a dinosaur with her two Yorkshire terriers, Scotty and Simone.

She found herself a T-Rex dinosaur costume in a Halloween store. Her dogs complimented her with matching dinosaur costumes. They all got dressed and went for a stroll around the neighborhood.

Berman said: “I was cracking up the whole time I was wearing the costume. Simone loves it so each time we were walking, she would gallop along in her little costume. We were all cracking up.”

The trick sounds absurd, but it did prove to be effective. The neighbors were initially taken back by the Jurassic Park scene near their homes. One resident took a quick peek and then shut the door as she went back to minding their own business.

Berman added: “Since I did the dinosaur stunt, I’ve definitely noticed a difference. They do short stares now rather than long hard ones, so it’s dialed down a little bit.”

The intention behind the dinosaur outfit was to make a statement on the streets, but it received love and attention on TikTok as she posted a video of the walk online. People started to praise her for her creativity and humor. Berman said: “When I posted it online, everybody was saying they wished they had me as a neighbor, so we could have fun.”

Halloween does not need to be limited to one day of the year. A little extra creativity can stretch any celebration.
