Puppy Stops to Smell the Flowers
After he turned three, Wrigley the dog decided he needed to slow things down. That’s why he’s literally stopping to smell the flowers these days.
“He was running around like crazy, sniffing everyone at the dog park, barking at everything. It was starting to take a toll,” said Sally Chee, an acquaintance of the pup. “That sort of lifestyle is fine when you’re one or two, but at a certain point you have to slow down.”
These days, Wrigley likes long, leisurely walks in the park and quiet games of frisbee on the beach with close friends.

Local Puppy Can’t Wait for Summer
School is almost out for Winnie, an area puppy who can’t wait for summer.
“She’s so excited about it,” said third grade teacher Mrs. Jenkins, “that Winnie actually turned in an essay called, ‘How I Plan to Spend My Summer Vacation,’ that wasn’t even assigned.”
According to the copy of the essay, obtained by The Fluffington Post, the dog plans to chase tennis balls, bark at the cat, roll in smelly stuff and dig a big hole under the porch.
Sounds like quite a summer.
Area Pups Look Up to Mom
The Melberg triplets — Buster, Bugsy and Allen — are mama’s boys, and they’re okay with that. The three bulldog puppies like to let everyone know how much they look up to their mother.
“She’s a superstar to them,” said Alexa Cho, who walks the family during the week. “Not just to them, really. She’s raising three boys on her own — that makes her a star in my book, too!”
Dog Tries to Fetch Wrong Stick
Tragedy struck the community of Williams Grove, VA yesterday when Wilbur, a border collie puppy, accidentally tried to retrieve the wrong stick during a game of fetch.
“We usually play fetch in the park every Sunday,” explained James Corrente. “Everything was going fine, but then I guess I got too playful. I pretended to throw the stick, but really held it behind my back.”
According to eyewitness reports, Wilbur was confused at first and at spent a few moments trying to find the stick. He whirled around a couple of times and then dashed off in the direction he thought it had been thrown.
What he tried to retrieve, however, turned out to be the stick they had been playing with, but an entire tree. By the time he realized his mistake, it was too late, and he was already clamped on.
The dog, who is at home resting his jaw, is expected to make a full recovery.

Puppy Prom Goes Off Without a Hitch
The pageantry and romance of prom isn’t lost on the canine set. Senior pups at Twin Oaks High School had theirs last Thursday, and it was a picture-perfect gala, according to sources.
“Butt sniffing on the dance floor was kept to a minimum, thanks to our great chaperones,” says school superintendent Nancy Holbrook. “Riley and Alice were voted prom king and queen, not surprisingly. They make a great couple,”
