Chicago Dog Diagnosed With First Cast of the Mondays
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
A Chicago-area dog as been diagnosed with the first confirmed canine case of the Mondays in the United States.
Biggles, a long-time resident of Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, noticed a few months ago that the start of the week was frequently bringing him down. Every seven days, he’d have a hard time rousing himself and had trouble focusing on normal tasks.
Veterinarian Anne Harvenberg made the diagnosis.
“The Mondays has been pretty prevalent in humans for years,” Harvenberg said. “This is our first confirmed cases in dogs, though. That’s pretty big news.”
Harvenberg explained that a lot of folks thought the Mondays was just a myth in pups. Yet, she said, despite their care-free natures, many dogs feel just as much pressure as their human counterparts at the start of each week. 
“Just like for humans, canines have to prepare for another week of hard work: being cute, wagging their tails, and playing fetch,” she said. “And at least humans get the weekend off. Dogs are dogging it 24/7.”
This diagnosis is a huge step forward in canine well-being because Mondays treatments for dogs might finally be covered by insurance carriers. Harvenberg recommended that anyone in close contact with a dog that may have a case of the Mondays give the puppy extra love and affection at the start of the week.

Puppy Attempts Gaming Marathon, Fails
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
The plan was simple: Sixteen straight hours of Call of Duty, then Fred would call it a day. Unfortunately for the puppy, the execution was a bit harder.
"I told him he was crazy," says friend Mark Henning. "I mean, he’s a pretty hardcore gamer. But this seemed extreme."
The pup was almost twelve hours into the challenge last Saturday when, unexpectedly, disaster struck.
"He straight up passed out," says Henning. "He was on the France missions, too - those are the best."
Though disappointed, Fred plans to attempt the feat again next weekend.
"I have faith in him," says Henning. "He just might want to try more Red Bull this time."

Dog Builds Hobbit Hole
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
Jake the dog was always a Lord of the Rings fan, and now, he has his own little piece of Middle Earth. The pup recently completed work on a hobbit hole, modeled after the distinctive dwellings in J.R.R. Tolkien’s tales. The finished product looks like something straight out of the Shire… more or less.
"I don’t remember hobbit holes being described as ‘plastic,’" says Brian Moss, a friend. "He also could have dug into the ground a bit more. Still, it’s a pretty decent approximation. For a dog."
Jake is now reported to be planning an even more ambitious project.
 ”He’s going to make a doggy Minas Tirith,” says Moss. “The blueprints look impressive, but I’m not sure how he’s going to pull it off. He may have to subcontract out.”
