Dog Really Into Beer Gardens For Happy Hour
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Washington, DC resident Winnie the dog has been having a stressful summer at the office, often tempted to play hooky to enjoy the warm weather. In order to avoid losing her job, she’s found a way to enjoy the outdoors without skipping work: frequent the city’s outdoor beer gardens for happy hour.
Being able to unwind and to enjoy a frosty cold one have made a huge difference in her quality of life, according to friends.
Coworker Nikki Mayer has been accompanying Winnie on many five o’clock outings.
“There are no windows in our office, so having a chance to get some sunshine on a patio or back garden is amazing,” she said. 
The pair have made it their mission this summer to visit every beer garden in the greater DC area so that they’ll know in advance where they’ll want to celebrate Octoberfest.

Cat Nominated for “Ice Bucket Challenge”
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
It’s been all over the web. Eventually it had to get around to Lyle. 
The cat opened up his Facebook yesterday morning to find that he’d been nominated for the popular “Ice Bucket Challenge” by a friend. Suffice it to say, he was not pleased. 
"Lyle hates water," says friend Jon O’Rourke. "He’s like most cats in that regard. But freezing cold water a bunch with ice in it? There’s no way he’s doing that."
Lyle had better decide quickly - at the time of this writing, the cat had less than ten hours to douse himself in ice water or donate to ALS research.
"He’s a bit torn," says O’Rourke. "He’s all for philanthropy, but he doesn’t want to look like a wimp. I hope his wallet’s as big as his ego."

Shih Tzu Surprised With “Ice Bucket Challenge”, Gets Revenge
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Last week, a puppy named Butterscotch was nominated to take the ALS ice bucket challenge by a coworker. Because she’s never been a big fan of water or swimming, so she opted to make a generous donation to the organization instead of being doused in cold water. 
Unfortunately for her, the coworker who put her up to the challenge, Elisa Rodriguez, decided that wasn’t good enough. So while sitting outside on lunch break yesterday, she surprised the Shih Tzu by dumping the requisite five gallons of freezing water over her friend’s head.
While drying off in the office, Butterscotch quickly sought revenge, hiding Rodriguez’s iPhone. She refused to return the smartphone until Rodriguez made $50 donations to the American Cancer Society, the Alzheimer’s Association, and the (RED) Campaign.

Tiny Pig Inherits Vast Fortune
The long inheritance battle over the Piggy-Wiggy family estate came to a close last week when a judge awarded greater than 80% of the fortune to young heiress, Henrietta. Leaked court documents, obtained by The Fluffington Post, reveal just how much the pig stands to inherit.
According to financial records introduced by the pig and her lawyers, the Piggy-Wiggy estate is valued at between $70 and $90 million. That is easily the largest porcine fortune in the world, handily outstripping the pig who stared in the movie Babe, whose net worth is estimated at around $2 million.
The estate includes millions in cash and stock holdings, as well as a good deal of luxury real estate.
Notable residences that Henrietta can now call home include an 8-bedroom mansion in the wealthy enclave of Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, a 15-bedroom, 12-bathroom “cottage” in Newport, RI and a 2,500 square foot condo on Central Park West, in New York, NY, valued at $12.5 million.
The pig could not be reached for comment.

Kitty Daredevil Performs Endurance Feat
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
According to her manager, Koko the cat is more than halfway through her latest feat of endurance, billed as ‘The Post of Doom.’ In interviews prior to the event, the cat had promised to stay atop her scratching post for five whole minutes.
"She’s been training for months," says Sid Randolph. "Hopping up on the post, staying for a few seconds. Hopping back up on the post, staying for a few more seconds. It’s a lot more mental than physical."
After completing the challenge, the cat will attempt a death-defying free-fall to the soft carpet below, and will then likely take a nap.
"You have to admire her fortitude," says Randolph. "I mean, David Blaine did basically the same thing, but he wasn’t nearly as cute. Koko just takes it to a whole other level."
The stunt will culminate in a live one-hour special on ABC, similar to the cat’s previous feat, ‘Cardboard Box of Insanity.’
