So Just What IS a Flying Fluffy?

This is something I get asked all the time. Ok, so we get that Fluffy is your Saint Bernard, but why is it that you claim he can fly? Well, because he can, and while I don't have the actual photos to prove it, I can provide the general idea.

So a couple years back we took a short vacation to a cottage on the Chesapeake Bay on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.  The cottage is set on a sort of bluff, as you can see here
So several times per day we would get the dogs out on the water, with the approved method of transportation being the stairs that you see behind the goofy kid in the Charlie Brown shirt. Except on this particular trip, Fluffy had a different idea.
You see that sand bar off to the right? Well just past that, when we opened the door, we could see about a dozen Canadian Geese just hanging in the water. So did Fluffy.  At which point, he bolted from the door, and well, he FLEW off the bluff , onto the sand about 25 feet below, stuck the landing and kept in perfect stride as he ran after the geese! No, he did not catch them luckily.

Hence the name Flying Fluffy was Born!!!!!

Here is a video from day one of that vacation. Thanks for reading & watching!!!
