Dog Has First Driving Lesson
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
Ripley is what you’d call an “intelligent” dog.
"He started learning things very quickly," says Ryan Moore, Ripley’s owner. "Even as a puppy, you could tell he was smarter than most dogs. It only made sense to teach him how to drive."
Though the pup’s size presented some practical challenges, he at least managed to cover the steering portion during his inaugural driving lesson last weekend.
"He was a bit jerky around the turns, but it wasn’t any worse than you’d expect from a dog," says Moore. "Next week we’re going to try parallel parking."

Puppy Prepares for Fluffiness Pageant
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Dolly has been a pageant pup , and this year she is preparing for the biggest one of them all. Last weekend, she competed in the Northeast Junior Fluffiness Pageant qualifier. The dog, along with the three other finalists, was selected to move on to the American Junior Fluffiness Pageant, which will be held in Miami in October.
Pageant coach Chauncey Fitzmartin spoke with The Fluffington Post about Dolly’s quick rise to stardom.
“She’s got the perfect blend of all-American heart with just a touch of sophisticated je ne sais quoi,” he said. “Plus, when the spotlight hits her just right, her fur looks like a halo. The judges just die.” 
Fitzmartin said that his protégé would not be making any major revisions to her performance prior to her debut on the national stage.
“So many ladies burn out too fast,” he said. “She’s still in Juniors’, so the goal is just to have a good experience and have fun.”  
Dolly has one more year to compete at the junior division. Fitzmartin said that she has no plans to abandon pageantry as she matures. “She’s got the makings of a champion, no doubt. She’ll be a Miss Fluffy before her career is over, maybe even Miss Fluffy World. Who knows? The world is her chew toy.”

'Dog Baywatch' Announced
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
Baywatch was one of the most popular TV programs of the 1990’s - and now, it’s coming back. The NBC network has just announced a reboot of the classic series slated for its fall season, with an all-new cast.
"We decided to do dogs this time,” says Bob Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment. “Our focus groups reacted positively to the idea. People tend to like things with dogs better than things without them. It’s science.”
Leading the cast is canine newcomer Boomer as hunky lifeguard Pooch Buchannon. 
"Boomer is going to be a big star," says Greenblatt. "His slow-motion beach shots were some of the best we’ve ever seen."
Dog Baywatch will premiere in primetime in mid-September, alongside Paw and Order and Cheers With Cats.

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.

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.

Celebrity Pooch Hits Coney Island Incognito
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Being a celebrity isn’t all red carpet premieres and designer threads. When you’re a public figure like Pugsy, host of the reality TV show Big Barker, just running out for a rawhide without causing a paparazzi swarm is almost impossible. FluffPo’s gossip column has just learned that Pugsy may be using disguises in order to escape his SoHo loft and roam the city in peace.
Today, he wanted to enjoy a last summertime hurrah without the stress of having photographers or fans in his face, so he opted for a clever costume.
FluffPo caught up with Pugsy’s rep, Maria Andrade, while the pup was in line for one of the popular roller coasters. “He just wants to be able to enjoy the boardwalk like a normal dog,” Andrade said. “So I came up with the idea of this disguise! We’ve been here for hours and nobody has recognized him!”
Suddenly, Andrade looked concerned. “Wait, is this on the record?”
