Samoyed Puppy Was Born to Model
by Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
From the day he was born, Zeke seemed to have a natural understanding of his best angles. As he’s grown up, he developed a sixth sense for finding the camera and the light. Friend Natalie Brown showed The Fluffington Post her home photos of Zeke and his puppy siblings. In every shot, he’s flashing a dazzling samoyed smile to the camera, even when the other dogs are oblivious to the attention.
Brown said she noticed Zeke’s photogenic nature right away. “He’s from a litter of five, but even when he was a tiny puppy, he stood out from the pack,” she said. “He’s got that magical X factor.”
In fact, Brown thinks Zeke has the natural talent to make it big time. “I sent a headshot to Tyra Banks,” she said. “I mean, he’s got her ‘smile with your eyes’ thing down to a science.”
In FluffPo’s editorial opinion, we would be much more inclined to watch the fierceness of America’s Next Top Poodle rather than the human show currently on air.

David Hasselhoff’s Biggest Canine Fan Visits the Beach
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Coco the chocolate lab is a lifelong fan of David Hasselhoff. Thanks to his love of the Hoff, it was no surprise when Coco showed up at the beach this summer ready for some slow­-motion runs on the sand in homage to Baywatch.
Calvin Reese, a friend of the dog, said that Coco’s obsession made the seaside trip less fun than usual. “Normally I love playing fetch in the park,” he said. “But out here on the beach, it takes him five minutes to bring the stick back after each throw.”
At least this wasn’t the dog’s most annoying Hoff­-related activity. Reese said that when he was looking for a new car last year, Coco insisted on a Pontiac Trans Am.
“I kept telling him that I wasn’t going to be the same as Knight Rider,” Reese said, shaking his head at the memory. “Coco sulked for weeks when I bought a Prius instead.”

Cat Accused of Cheating at ‘Game of Life’
A cat named Tator Tot won a suspicious victory in the popular board game Life on Friday, prompting accusations of cheating and collusion with other players.
"You’re telling me he lands on the best job, gets a family of four in three turns, and never lands on a penalty space?" says Nathan Perkins, one of the players disenfranchised by Mr. Tot’s extraordinary stroke of luck. "Something’s up with that."

Facebook Ruins Bear Family Reunion

The Hensons, a large extended family of Alaskan brown bears, have been gathering at Katmai National Park for a reunion every summer. It’s a tradition of camping, fishing and re-connecting that goes back generations in this tight-knit group.

But this year, the revelry of reuniting with long-lost relatives was somewhat less exciting.

"Everyone is friends on Facebook," says Diane Peterson, a long-time friend of the family. "They all see each other’s updates and chat constantly. So there was very little to talk about at the reunion. Everyone was all caught up."

Reports indicate the normally rowdy bunch mostly sat by the river’s edge in awkward silence, with occasional remarks about the weather.

Hamster Boosts Producivity With ‘Yes’ Button
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
As any procrastinator knows, even the simplest project can be delayed by indecisiveness. Knowing that full well, Carl the hamster tries to make things easier by investing in a “yes” button.
"It’s literally just a button that says ‘yes,’" says Paul Brandt, a friend. "He keeps it at his desk, and looks at it when he’s not sure about doing something. It’s really made all the difference."
Indeed, Carl is now more productive than ever.
"I haven’t sen him on his wheel in weeks," says Brandt. "I think he realized that it was only slowing him down, as ironic as that is. He’s written five blog posts, two short stories and a third of a screenplay - and that was just last week."
Things have picked up so much for Carl, he’s now considering the unthinkable.
"He told me he wants to delete his Facebook," says Brandt. "I don’t think he’s going to — at least, I hope he doesn’t. He’s already making me look bad."
