BFTB NETWoof News November 19, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to this week’s BFTB NETWoof News. We hope that you had a wonderful weekend. Let’s check with Pierre for our top story.”

Pierre Westie: “We have the perfect job for someone that enjoys cuddling puppies. Mutts® Canine Cantina in Ft. Worth just offered a position to pet and cuddle puppies. The “puptern” would earn $100 per hour!
   This combination restaurant and dog park is a very popular destination for dog lovers with locations in Dallas and Ft. Worth. All we can say is if they open one in Houston, we know a certain Mom that will be applying!”

Bentley: “This next story is filed under What were they thinking? A Seattle couple trying to bring their Bengal cats to Hawaii with them but have been denied. A Bengal cat is domestic but has markings like a leopard or ocelot.
   The Department of Agriculture says the cats are a cross between a domestic cat and an Asian leopard cat. Although the Cat Fanciers’ Association claims the Bengal cat is only bred with other of the same breed, officials believed these three cats to be hybrids thereby falling under the state’s list of prohibited animals.”

Pierre: “Speaking of the Department of Agriculture, they have made another ruling this time in Oklahoma. A man found a feral piglet on the road a year ago. The rest of its family had been run over so he decided to take the survivor home. They named her Felicia and she became a member of their family.
   Felicia escaped her yard not long ago and a complaint was filed. The family was told since it had become a family pet, they could keep her if she was spayed and tested for Brucellosis and Pseudorabies. These diseases are commonly found in feral swine and can infect humans and other species. The family has chosen to ignore those rules and the state has concluded that Felicia must be euthanized.
   Now, I am not sure exactly why the family would claim to love the hog but refuse to get her vetted, so she can remain with them…and ALIVE! I am calling their love hogwash!”
Pierre: “This next report was on one of our local news stations and was such a feel-good story that we wanted to share it.
   Worried animal lovers had been trying to rescue a couple of pups from a north Houston storm drain for several days. Finally, with rain and freezing temps forecasted, they decided it was time to do everything they could to locate the dogs and try to save them.
   The police and fire department had been out but could not locate them. With the cover open, two unlikely heroes showed up to lend a hand. Major League baseball pitcher for the Oakland A’s Daniel Mengden and 14x Ironman veteran Rick D’Amico went down into the hole and searched for over an hour before finding the cold and hungry puppies. The two men did not know each other before this but proved that teamwork is important on and off the field. The crowd erupted in cheers when they surfaced with the pups.
   The best news of all is after a trip to the vet, Mengden and his girlfriend plan to adopt both the puppies. On that positive note, let’s keep our paws crossed for some good weather. Paisley?”
Paisley the Weather Lab: “I think we all have weather that we can be thankful for this week.
   Let me start with California where they are still battling those horrid wildfires. We are expecting showers to help douse some of the flames. SoCal will have rain later in the week. Please continue to pray for all those displaced including the wildlife.
   As we scan the map there is a hodge-podge of weather. Both the southwest and southeast will be sunny and warm. Here in Texas, there will be scattered showers with temperatures in the 70’s. The center of the U.S. will be breezy and sunny over the Rockies and fair all the way to the east coast. You will have cooler temps so a jacket before heading out to Thanksgiving dinner.
   Those of you in the north dealing with frigid weather. If you enjoy bundling up, this is going to be a perfect week.
I want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes. It meant a lot to me. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!”
Bentley: “Yes, all of us here at BFTB News hope that you have a happy Thanksgiving. Please know that we are very thankful for all of you and the loving support we receive each day.
   This week will be hectic for everyone but we hope you will still stop by for some fun reviews, holiday tips, and the all-important Black Friday gift ideas!
   Have a terrific day and be sure to grab yourself some happy.”

I can’t wait to have my husband’s cornbread dressing on Thanksgiving. (For those not from the south, that’s stuffing but doesn’t go inside the turkey)
• I am thankful for my family.
• When it comes to pie, it’s pumpkin all the way!
• A feast is not a feast without baked rolls.

We Messed Up!

Me: “Bentley…Pierre…Come here quick! We made a BIG mistake and have to correct it right away.”
Bentley: “OMD! What happened. Let me just say that I’m sure I didn’t do anything wrong. It must have been you and Pierre.”
Pierre: “Hold it right there, Bentley. It wasn’t me. I’m pretty sure that I was not even in the country when whatever happened occurred. There is no need for actual witnesses, is there?”

Pierre Westie: “We all know how important organ donors can be in saving a human’s life. Did you know the same can be said for animals? A dog named Star was found three years ago with a litter of thirteen puppies. When they arrived at the vet, it was discovered Star was in kidney failure and having seizures. After a few weeks of medication and love, she bounced back. She along with nine of her puppies survived and were adopted.

Joking Around on the Bayou

Talking Dog 4 Sale
A guy is driving through town and sees a sign in front of a house: "Talking Dog for Sale."
He rings the bell and the owner tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy walks into the backyard and sees an old dog sitting there.
"Do you really talk?" he asks. "Sure do," the hound replies. "Sooo, what's your story?" The guy’s curiosity is peaked.
The dog looks up and says, “Well, I discovered my gift of talking pretty young and I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA about my gift, and in no time they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping. I was one of their most valuable spies eight years running.”
