Pup’s Instagram Selfies Are a ‘Cry for Help’
Henry, a 6-year-old pup from San Clemente, CA, has been posting piles of Instagrams lately. None of them individually are cause for concern, but friends are worried.
"They’re all selfies with captions like, ‘just hanging out with my lewis.’ Which is fine, except Lewis is a stuffed dog," says Jack Graham. "He’s trying to look super popular, but instead he’s just making everyone cringe."
Experts say it may be Henry’s desire to fit in, magnified by the loneliness of social media.
"He wants to show his other friends and classmates that he’s cool," says Dr. Alice Robertson, a canine psychologist. "But in this case, he’s coming off a little desperate."
Henry’s family is investigating ways to broach the subject without causing him any further embarrassment.

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.
