Dear Dad

    Sunday is Father’s Day in America and we hope all of the dads out there have a great weekend. The Bayou Boys wanted to pen a special letter to their dad and asked if they could share it here.

Dear Dad,
   Happy Father’s Day! Pierre and I felt we should get together and write this letter to let you know how much we love you. You are the best dad a dog could ask for and we are very glad that you belong to us. 
   Why do we love you so much, you ask? Here are a few of the gazillion reasons that we came up with:
• You give great belly rubs
• You always play laser light and tug o’ war with us
• On walks you let me pee 900 times ( Pierre)
• The guys (Pierre, you and me) all get to hang out in the “man cave” together
• There’s always a little extra chicken in our dishes when you make our dinner
• The yard is always mowed and ready for us to catch some sun
• Your barbecue always smells so amazing
• We feel safe when we are with you, especially during storms or fireworks ( Bentley)
• You always take great photos of us for our blog and make us do cool things like fly or drive a boat
• You worry about us
• You spoil us
• You love us
• Those other gazillion things you do every day to let us know that we are a family
   There are lots of dog dads in the world, but we know how blessed we are to have you! Have a wonderful Father’s Day!

Take 5 for your Pet's Health

   How often do you wash your dishes? Most likely the answer is after every meal. Can you imagine having to eat all of your meals out of one dish that hardly ever got washed? It sounds gross and certainly not something that we would enjoy. Now ask yourself when was the last time that you washed your pet’s food and water bowls out with soap and hot water. If it is longer than yesterday, please stop reading this, take five minutes and go wash them. I’ll wait for you. Thanks, they’ll appreciate it. Okay, let’s talk about why it is so important to clean your pet’s bowls.

BFTB NETWoof News June 10, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for the week of June 10, 2019. We are so glad to have you here. Let’s toss it over to Pierre for our top story.”
Pierre Westie: “Thanks, Bentley. We reported about the possibility of New York becoming the first state to ban declawing cats except in case of medical necessity. That means no more declawing because the cat scratches the furniture! We are happy to update you with news that lawmakers passed the bill and it is waiting on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s signature. Seriously, can you imagine any public official NOT signing a bill that would end the senseless torture of cats? I think not. We will, of course, let you know when it is law.”

Pierre vs. the Burrs

Pierre loves to go outside and roll in the clover where these burrs are hiding. His fur is like Velcro® to these prickly nuisances. We picked over 80 from his face alone! Now, you’d think that he’d learn his lesson, but he has not and will continue to get them. In the backyard, there is a tiny little spot where they grow but he can find it each time he goes out! Thankfully, they are almost gone. He does sit perfectly still while we pick each one out.

Anatomy of a Walk

We are always super happy to go on a walk. Today was no different. There were things to smell and people to see.

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for June 3, 2019. We have fetched some great stories for you this week so let’s toss it over to Pierre for our top story.

Pierre Westie: “Summer brings out a variety of animals and not all of them are friendly. Coyotes have become a common sight in many neighbors and most of them will avoid confrontation. That is not always the case so we want to issue a warning to avoid coyotes and never leave your dog or cat out unattended in areas frequented by coyotes.

Be Prepared with Treatibles Ready Packs

   I know it seems like our dogs just got over the terror of New Year’s Eve and here we are already dreading the 4th of July! As if that’s not enough to have your pet pacing and panting, hurricane season is starting so that means you could have some bad storms or even an evacuation situation. Oh my, I forgot to mention the summer visits from relatives. How are those of us with sensitive dogs and cats going to survive?
