BFTB NETWoof News May 20, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for May 20, 2019. We are happy to be back behind the news desk bringing you the news you can use. Let’s toss it over to Pierre for our top story.”

Pierre Westie: “Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve had to say good-bye to some pawsome friends. Our orange buddy, Crockett, from The Lone Star Cats was lost in a tragic ladder accident. He was so loved and will be missed by all who loved and knew him. 
   The world-famous Tartar Sauce, a.k.a. Grumpy Cat passed away from a urinary tract infection. In his seven years, his adorable frown made him the most popular cat and meme on the internet. I’m sure his imagine will continue to make people smile for years.
   The animal world also lost a huge animal rights advocate when actress Doris Day died at 97 years old. She began one of the first national animal protection organizations that led to dozens of bills, rules and policies to help remedy the worst animal abuse. Her movies were always fun to watch but the difference she made in the lives of animals will be her greatest achievement in my opinion. 
   We will miss all of these incredible lives.”

Bentley: “This next one is a whale of a fish story, so to speak. The villagers in a southern Thailand province are used to seeing giant catfish. It was when they noticed one in distress that they came together to help save a local legend.
   The 26-year-old giant Mekong catfish is lovingly known by the villagers as the swamp king. The 440 lb. fish had gotten stuck in a tiny pond after heavy rains flooded the area. It took six hours to pull, hoist and transport the big fish but we are happy to report the swamp king is swimming free once again. Sometimes it really does take a village.”
Pierre: “There is a bill in the Louisiana House that would require anyone found guilty of animal abuse to register as an animal abuser within seven days of their conviction. The law would prohibit them from owning an animal for ten years. If they are found guilty a second time, they would be prohibited from owning an animal for life. Personally, I’d like to think that’s because they would be in jail for life! The law is a step in the right direction, and we hope it is passed.
Bentley: “Most of you know that we are affiliates for Treatibles Full Spectrum Hemp products. The difference that the soft chews or oil make in me during thunderstorms is amazing. I just wanted to share this recent incident with you.
   We had some scary bad weather the other day and Mom gave me some Treatibles oil about thirty minutes before the storm hit. Without Treatibles, I pant, pace, try to climb up on the furniture or hide under things. I know that some of you are reading this and nodding your heads. It made my people sad to see me so upset but now, I actually get in my bed and sleep during storms. They keep saying stuff like, “It’s a miracle!” 
   We are going to share our review of the Treatibles Ready Pack oil next week, but you can order yours today and use our discount code to save 10%. Don’t forget the 4th of July will be here with all the noise before we know it! Your best friend does not have to suffer through the holidays. Treatibles bring Harmony for the Whole Family®.
Paisley the Weather Lab: “I am going to be sharing my experience with Treatibles in that same upcoming review. Y’all don’t want to miss it. Even my humans could not believe the difference! Until then Bentley, you might want to keep yours close because there is some storms heading our way again.
   There isn’t much difference in the weather this week. It is going to be wet, wet, wet from sea to shining sea! If it is not raining at your house, it will either be cold and damp up north or hot and muggy down south. Don’t despair though, I think Memorial Day weekend will be looking much better.
   Please stay tuned to your local weather stations. The weather is really wacky this month and we had over 30 tornados hit the U.S. this past weekend. Always have an emergency plan that includes your pets.
Bentley: “We want to give a shout-out to all the humans that are graduating from high school and college. Congratulations!
   We have two fabulous reviews coming this week. On Wednesday, our review will include a fabulous giveaway! Don’t forget that our 300th Pet Parade Blog Hop and giveaway is still in full swing. Stop by our post, Dash Kitten and Bionic Basil for your entries!
   We are including a badge to celebrate Memorial Day next Monday. Feel free to use and share it as we remember those who gave all for our freedom.
   Have a super day and be sure to grab yourself some happy.”

Beary Tasty Treats for Dogs

   Bentley is 100% motivated by food. If you expect him to cooperate, there had better be something in it for his tummy. Being a senior, it is important for him to maintain a healthy weight so we’re particular about the treats we give him. That's why I was so excited to discover Charlee Bear Meaty Bites. They are the perfect size for a treat or I can break them in half for training sessions.
*We are being compensated for sharing Charlee Bear® Meaty Bites dog treats. Barking from the Bayou only shares products that we use and believe our readers will benefit from knowing about. Charlee Bear is not responsible for the contents of this article. All opinions are my own.
Charlee Bear Grain Free Meaty Bites Chicken & Blueberries
Charlee Bear Grain Free Meaty Bites are 100% grain free and made in the USA. The Chicken & Blueberries are made with select cuts of raw chicken then, they're infused with blueberries that you can see! These meaty bites are freeze dried for the maximum nutritional value.
Charlee Bear Grain Free Meaty Bites Beef Liver & Sweet Potatoes
Charlee Bear Grain Free Meaty Bites Beef Liver & Sweet Potatoes begin with USA raised raw beef then, for a taste sensation, they add sweet potatoes before freeze drying. This unique and incredibly healthy treat will be a favorite at your house!

Bentley: “I like to give all my treats the sniff test. MMM…I can smell fresh blueberries! You do know that blueberries and sweet potatoes are both super foods, right? That makes these treats super too! 
   Charlee Bear is a family owned company and has been making quality treats for over 25 years. A little rescue dog named Charlee was the inspiration for their name. Yes, you guessed it. The little guy was a heart stealer and looked like a teddy bear! It is their mission to make simple, nourishing and natural treats that dogs love.”

“Okay, here’s the deal. The smell test is important but it’s the taste test that makes or breaks a treat for me. Wow! Excuse the stream of drool but y’all simply have to try a Charlee Bear’s Meaty Bites to appreciate how delectable each bite tastes. Crunchy yet light with just the perfect amount of blueberry in each one. Did I mention they are only 5 tiny calories a piece?”

“Let me shoot you straight on Meaty Bites from Charlee Bear. I love them. Both flavors are scrumptious. You can trust my taste buds because I have eleven and a half years of treat expertise under my collar. Treats are life. Mom carries them on our walks to divert my attention from other dogs. Something about me being too macho for my own good. Anyway, she just whips one out of her bag and everything around me disappears except for that yummy Charlee Bear treat. We will be ordering more on *Amazon so I can have them delivered to my front door practically overnight! It’s like it says on the bag, they are Beary Tasty Treats™.”

BFTB NETWoof News May 13, 2019

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: “Our top story is that our news researcher (mom) spent the weekend enjoying herself and spending time watching her great nephew play college baseball. They visited with family in town for the weekend and she failed miserably to find our news stories. Bentley and I checked out some local pee mail but found no good news there. We are cutting Mom some slack because of Mother’s Day but won’t hesitate to write her up if it happens again. Just sayin’.”

Last Minute Gift Ideas for Pet Moms

   Mother’s Day in the United States is Sunday, May 12. That means you still have time to buy the dog or cat mom in your life the purr-fect Mothers’ Day gift. There is no more convenient way to shop than with Amazon. We buy everything for our home from cookware to bike parts on Amazon. I honestly can’t remember the last time I actually shopped for a gift in a store. It is just so easy and with PRIME, the free shipping makes it a no-brainer.
I am an Amazon Influencer and added a new Idea Board for Mother’s Day. If you make a purchase through my Amazon page, I will receive a small commission at not additional charge to you.
Here are just a few of the ideas I have gathered for Mother’s Day. Be sure to visit my page for more cool gifts.
Isn’t this necklace the cat’s meow for your cat mom?

BFTB NETWoof News May 6, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News. We have some great reports for you so let’s throw it over to Pierre for our top story.”
Pierre Westie: “Thanks, Bentley and hi everyone! We have to start off with the Kentucky Derby Debacle. For the first time in the race’s 145-year history, the horse that crossed the finish line first was disqualified for interference. 
   Maximum Security was a favorite to win the first leg of the Triple Crown race on a sloppy track, but it was a 65-1 longshot named Country House that was declared the winner after a twenty-minute review delay. There were a lot of disappointed fans but some very lucky ticket holders that won $132.40 on a $2.00 bet!”
