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.

Radioactive Cat Acquires Lame Super Power
A cat named Bailey was excited to learn he had been exposed to radioactive sewage on a recent vacation in Japan.
“Most cats would be a little freaked out to know they were radioactive,” says John Herling, a friend of the feline. “Not Bailey. He started making plans for the superhero lifestyle — a cool name, spandex costume, crime fighting gadgets — the works.”
Though his doctors stressed the seriousness of his condition, and that acquiring paranormal abilities is not the norm, Bailey was unfazed. It turns out his health is fine, and he did gain a super power. But not one from his wish list.
“He can become rainbow colored,” says Herling. “He can turn it off and on at will. It’s great for parties, but it doesn’t really help with crime fighting. He’s really bummed about it. He’s been moping around since last Tuesday when he found out. If you see a sad, furry rainbow in the corner, that’s probably him, sulking.”

Cat Puts Left Paw In, Refuses to Shake It All About
In what’s already being called “PokeyGate” by the local press, a cat named Smithers stunned onlookers yesterday when he refused to follow instructions during a heated round of hokey pokey.
According to several reports, Smithers put his left paw in when instructed, but then flouted repeated requests to “shake it all about.”
“The rules exist for a reason,” said hokey pokey expert Steve Randolph. “He made a mockery of game. There should be swift and severe penalties from the IHPB.”
The IHPB — or International Hokey Pokey Board — which governs professional play worldwide, has not yet reached a decision about any punishment for Smithers.
