Dog Really Wants To Be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
As a young puppy, Ralph spent his Saturday mornings and watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
He still idolizes the group, and in fact, sources close to the beagle told The Fluffington Post that he dreams of someday being a member of a real life TMNT gang. The recent box office success of the new Ninja Turtles movie has only fueled his desire that much more.
"Oh, he was first in line at the movie opening weekend," said friend Iggy Montenegra. "He loved it, of course, but he kept calling it ‘a great documentary,’ which I thought was a little odd."
Though he is no longer a teenager — and is not a turtle, Ralph sees those as only minor impediments on his quest to become a justice-seeking mutant. He feels that his thirst for justice and righting the world’s wrongs would make him a great fit for fighting crime from the sewers.

Kitten-Con Is the Comic-Con of Cuteness
Young felines from around the world descended on Cleveland, TX this week for Kitten-Con, the annual celebration of geek culture, but with adorable kittens.
The cosplayers were out in force, many kittens dressing up like their favorite heroes from Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Doctor Who.
"Some of these cosplayers really go all-out," says Mark Hansen, who covers the geeky convention every year for Entertainment Weekly.”The attention to detail is flawless.”
The conference wraps up today with panels, product demos and a keynote from actor Wil Wheaton.

Model Dog Signs with American Apparel
By Ashley Welter, FluffPo Correspondent
A Los Angeles pup named Scooter has signed on to become the new face of struggling retailer American Apparel, making him the brand’s first four-legged cover model.
"Scooter moved to LA last year with one goal in mind — making it big," his agent, Jenn Burskowitz, told The Fluffington Post. Until his big break, Scooter had been waiting tables at Hollywood’s iconic Roosevelt Hotel just to pay the bills.
Mark Shapiro, a frequent patron of the Roosevelt, described Scooter as, “A hard worker who’s just trying to make an honest buck. He waited on me several times, and he’s really just a good guy. That’s rare in Hollywood, and he deserves to make it big.”
It may have taken a year, but for Scooter, this is a huge step forward for his career. Industry-watchers are less impressed by the move for American Apparel, however.
"There’s no doubt Scooter is a cute dog,” said BusinessWeek reporter Stacey Cabelle, “but the move reeks of desperation. They’re slipping in the two-legged market, so they’ve hired a fresh face to try cracking the four-legged one.”
Cabelle isn’t sold on the strategy, citing stiff competition in that market from established designers like Furberry and Hugo Bosston Terrier.
