Puppy Longshoreman Fired on First Day
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
Bo just wanted a job on the high seas.
The aspiring longshoreman and puppy had answered a local ad looking for part-time dock help. The pay was meager, but the promise of adventure was too great to resist. 
"He thought he’d actually be working on the ships," says Ray Folger, Bo’s co-worker of one day. "I had to explain to him that he’d just be loading stuff and making sure the ships don’t float away. He got the first part down alright."
The second part proved more difficult. Bo had been on the job only an hour when the cargo ship assigned to him started drifting out to sea.
"That’s when the boss showed up," says Folger. "Needless to say, he was pretty mad. Bo tried swimming out to get it, but it was too little too late."
At press time, the newly unemployed pup was said to be applying for other positions, including zookeeper and mall security guard.

Pup’s New Fall Collection Features Ready-to-Wear, Accessories
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Lulu, the renowned canine fashion designer, offered The Fluffington Post a sneak peak at her fall collection at her private studio. The ready-to-wear items feature her usual interest in soft, fluffy fabrics. Notably, the papillon is expanding her creative talents into more than clothing, and the next season will include a foray into accessories. 
“She was inspired by a Caribbean vacation this spring,” sewing assistant Veronica Broussard said. “She wanted to capture that warm, tropical feeling during the colder weather without it looking too tacky or tiki. And of course, she’s found the perfect balance.”
Above, Lulu models her Marguerite fur clip. Pink satin bow, with orange and white silk ribbons, black Swarovsky crystal. $1,200.

Rabbit Sleeps Through Alarm, Misses Interview
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
His suit was pressed. His resume was printed. Gus the rabbit was going to ace that job interview - that is, if he had bothered to be awake for it.
"He slept right through his alarm," says Corey Bortnick, a friend. "You know that rabbit who was late for a very important date? Well this was just like that - except the date was an assistant management position at Target."
A notoriously heavy sleeper, Gus had unfortunately forgotten to turn up the volume on his iPhone alarm.
"He’d probably still be asleep if I hadn’t called him to ask how it went," says Bortnick. "I guess that’s what he gets for scheduling an interview for three in the afternoon."
At press time, Gus was looking into other options, which included a lower-paying retail position at H&M.

Puppy Taken First Overall in Professional Fetch Draft
Last night’s Professional Fetch League draft opened with a bit of a surprise when Kansas City selected 2-month-old Riley, a puppy from California, with the number one overall pick.
"We think Riley has the natural talent to be a star in this league," said Kansas City Mud Hounds GM Billy Hannigan. "We’ll assign him to our development club in Wichita and hope to call him up mid-season."
Though there is no dispute over Riley talent — he’s quick off the blocks and has 25” vertical leap — he was considered a signability concern coming into the draft. The pup is strongly committed to Miss Marcy’s K9 Training Academy this fall and it was assumed he would fall to the fourth or fifth round.
"He’s a great pick," said one rival GM. "But [Kansas City] will have to pay a lot of kibble to buy him out of his commitment."
The draft’s first two rounds were held last night at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY and broadcast on ESPN. Round three through 10 will be held today and livestreamed on the PFL’s website.
