Puppy Really Wanted That Last Piece a Pie

By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent

Astor, a black lab from Brooklyn with a flair for baking, brought a strawberry rhubarb pie to her friends’ Labor Day picnic on Long Island. The afternoon was a great success, but after the meal, Astor got wrapped up in a game of frisbee and never got a chance to taste the fruit of her labors.

After a thorough investigation, sources revealed that Jackson Jefferson ate the last slice before Astor had a chance to call dibs. The eight-­year-­old had already enjoyed a first slice when he chose to gobble up the final piece, but claimed that he didn’t mean to deprive the lab of his dessert.

“I asked twice if everybody had had some pie,” Jefferson said in his defense. “It’s not my fault if Astor didn’t hear me!”

Astor did not comment on his hurt feelings, but did stare mournfully at Jefferson for the remainder of the picnic.

Scientists Discover Happiest Puppy

Twice in the past editors at The Fluffington Post have thought they had discovered the happiest dog on earth: once a year ago and then again four months ago. Not so, say scientists at Sapienza University of Rome, who point to Ellie, whose happiness levels are off the charts.

"Ellie may literally be the happiest dog alive right now," said researcher Salvatore Magliocco. "Ellie’s showing extremely elevated levels of serotonin and an increased number of endorphins. She’s just really happy, all the time."

Off the charts happy, according to Magliocco, who says that Ellie’s general mood is unprecedented. When compared to other dogs on record, Ellie is nearly twice as happy by most metrics.

"She never seems sad," he said. "We’d expect this amount of happiness to come with some manic tendencies, but she’s all peaks, no valleys. This is just one happy dog!"

Twin Cats Always Mirror Each Other in Sleep

Scientists are baffled by twin cats, Merry and Pippin, who reportedly always sleep in an exact mirror image of one another.  

"Even if we place them in disparate starting positions or in separate rooms, they somehow always wind up sleeping exactly like the other," said leading cat biologist and feline sleep expert Dr. Tobias Winslow.  "I’ve never seen anything like it."

A polysomnogram revealed nothing out of the ordinary about the cats’ brain functions, eye movements, muscle activity, breathing or heart rhythms.  ”We had expected to find that Merry and Pip were synched up on an internal level,” explained Winslow, “but it is literally just in the way they position their bodies for slumber.”

More tests will be done later this month during a scheduled comprehensive sleep study.

Cat Roomies Save Space With Bunk Beds

It may seem a little juvenile, but bunk beds are all the rage for young professionals with a high cost of living. Chester and Conrad share a one-bedroom apartment on New York City’s Lower East Side, but they maximize their space with stackable mattresses.

"There’s no way they could afford a two-bedroom on cat salaries," says Shelly Tegan, a resident in the same building. "Not in this neighborhood anyway."

Plush Toy Turned Out to Be Real Dog

When Wendy Holmes brought a stuffed animal home from her local Toys ‘R’ Us, nothing appeared out of the ordinary.

"It was just a cute stuffed dog," Holmes tells The Fluffington Post. "It was a Christmas present for my daughter."

Later that afternoon, her shopping bags started rustling.

"Turns out it was actually an adorable puppy," Holmes explained. "He must have been sleeping in the bin. Now that I think about it, he did look a little different from the other toys. That must be why I picked him out."

Cat Appointed Head Ranger at National Park

After three years toiling as an assistant ranger at Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park, a cat named Buckles has finally ascended the ranks.

"He knew the trails better than the bosses," says Steven Collier, a fellow assistant. "Not to mention that time he saved a family of campers from a bear."

The Parks Service formally recognized Buckles in a ceremony Wednesday, where they anointed him Head Ranger. He now oversees a majority of the parkland and manages a team of 50 rangers, scouts and interns.

"This park isn’t what it use to be," says Colleen Marcher, an administrator at Shenandoah. "I think [Buckles] could really turn this place around."

Trendy Cafe Serves Kitties With Every Cup

A new coffee shop in Sydney, Australia has a signature gimmick that cat lovers will enjoy. Every purchase comes with a purring kitty to keep you company while you sip.

"Cats are proven to calm nerves and create a restful atmosphere," says Ralphie Hazelip, co-owner of The Purrfect Cup. "That’s exactly the mood we want to create. So far, customers love it."

Llama Doesn’t Want to Go Back to School

After a week of holiday parties, presents, morning cartoons, and staying up way past his bedtime, Ferdinand the llama was not ready to head back to the classroom today.  According to reports, when his mother, Lily, tried to get him up this morning for school, Ferdinand tried to feign illness and finagle an extra day off.

"She wasn’t having any of it," said Hugh Wohl, a close family friend.  "Lily has six other kids, so she knows a fake fever when she sees one."

Cat Can’t Decide Which Laundry Detergent to Buy

An unidentified cat was spotted in a New York City bodega late Wednesday evening experiencing what the store clerk described as a “panic attack” over laundry detergent.

"He came in and asked where the detergent was," says Jesus Martinez, who was working behind the counter at the time. "I told him it was on the back wall. Paced back and forth for about an hour, like he couldn’t decide. Next thing I know, he’s curled up in a ball in the aisle. He just couldn’t handle the pressure of choice."
