Area Pup Pretty Sure He Was Taken to the Vet
Though details are still a bit hazy, a local dog named Duke is nearly certain he was taken to the vet.
"Apparently he was told he was just ‘going for a car ride,’" said a source familiar with the situation, "and he loves those!"
So he hopped right in. But instead the park, he was allegedly taken to a squat grey building with a mural of injured cartoon puppies and kittens painted on the front. 
"He’s certain it wasn’t the park," said the source, "and he’s pretty sure that it was actually the vet’s office."
We’ll update this story as more information becomes available.

Cross-Eyed Cat Scores Big With Hand Knit Crafts Business
by Ashley Welter, FluffPo Correspondent
Oregon residents are raving about a cat named Teva whose entrepreneurial spirit has made waves in the local community. Her company, Cross Stitch — a quirky play on her eye condition — features an array of different products including blankets, scarves, mittens, and beanies. 
Andrea Wixler, a local resident and mother of four, told The Fluffington Post, “Cross Stitch makes the coziest mittens. My kids have a pair in every color!” Wixler is just one of hundreds of loyal customers who swear by Teva’s products. 
The kitty’s line was recently picked up by Angie’s, a clothing store in downtown Portland.  “We pride ourselves on supporting local businesses,” said owner Angela Langley, “so we’re thrilled to have Cross Stitch products on our shelves.” 
Before starting her company, Teva worked in the competitive gaming industry, but excessive play with a laser pointer left her cross eyed. After the incident, she took a leap of faith, abandoning the high-stakes, big money world of the “red dot” in order to pursue her true passion: yarn.

Teddy the Yorkie Is Just What You Need

There are new stars born on the web every day, and the latest might just be Teddy the Yorkie. The dog, who started his Instagram account only just over a month ago, has already wracked up 500 followers with his particular brand of cuteness.

Viral pet expert Lazlo Dixon thinks Teddy has a shot at the big time.

"He’s very cute, he’s fluffy, he’s photogenic, he wears little outfits" said Dixon. "He’s got all the makings."

The pup, who is currently unrepresented, is reportedly interviewing agents, a move that Dixon called “wise.” Though Teddy has a long way to go before he’s the next Boo or Grumpy Cat, he’s off to a convincing start.

Major Catnip Bust Rocks Local Community
The DEA announced that, in partnership with local law enforcement, the agency has successfully closed a six month investigation into major catnip trafficking syndicate based in the small town of Gibbs Falls, North Dakota. The operation ended with 12 arrests and the seizure of over 2,000 pounds of catnip. Street value: $1.4 million.
"We’re happy to get all that nip off the streets," said agent Monica Payne, who lead the undercover operation, posing for months as a catnip buyer.
The cats involved in the ring were importing the illicit substance through Canada. Most of it was destined for Midwestern cities like Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago and Detroit. But what made this ring so dangerous, said Payne, was that they were also “cooking” the catnip into a highly additive designer drug known on the street as “scratch.” 
"Scratch has ruined a lot of lives," said Payne. "And cats only get nine."

Scientists Now Think This Is What Dinosaurs Looked Like
Forget everything you know about dinosaurs. Those big scary reptiles you saw in Jurassic Park? Wrong. That they later evolved into birds? Bogus. That they hatched from eggs? Completely fabricated. That they had rough, lizard-like skin? Not even close.
Groundbreaking new research from a team at the University of Chicago suggests that dinosaurs actually probably looked a lot more like Corgis.
Yes, those derpy little dogs that have become stars on the Internet are our closest living link to the age of the dinosaurs.
"We’ve identified previously unnoticed characteristics in the fossil record that led us to this startling discovery," said Professor Mason Waddington, who co-authored the paper in this month’s Annals of Paleontology about the findings. According to Waddington, the Corgi pup specifically seems to share a very strong link with dinos.
"They may look cute, but at its core, that is a ferocious beast of the past," he said.
