Happy 8th Birthday Pierre

   It is hard to believe but our little man is turning eight years old today! Pierre is the happiest dog we’ve ever had, and we have had some incredibly happy dogs. He doesn’t have a mean bone in his body and loves to play. His attitude is to have fun, live in the moment, and always smile. Maybe that is why he’s so happy!

BFTB NETWoof News April 15, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for the week of April 15, 2019. We have a rather unusual newscast today because other than our top story, we only have local news. By local I mean it is what is going on around here on the Bayou. First let’s get to the top story and for that we toss it over to Pierre.” 

Pierre Westie: “As you know we always pride ourselves in bringing stories to make you smile but this week, we have to share some sad news. Our beloved friend, Hazel, the matriarch of Idaho Pug Ranch passed over the Rainbow Bridge. If you’d like to leave your thoughts for her family, please visit their blog. She will be forever loved and missed.”

Pierre the Flirt

   I have to tell y’all what Pierre did the other day. First of all, I have mentioned that he has a crush on the female yellow Lab that lives behind us. They have only met through the fence. I don’t know her parents, so the two are left exchanging sweet nothings through the pickets. 
*A little sidebar…Bentley does not like her and thinks she deserves his harshest barking. 
   Okay, now that I have given you the background story let me tell you what our little Romeo did to impress his Juliet.

   We were sitting on the patio relaxing while Skipper grilled us some chicken on Monday. The boys were sniffing around in hopes that Dad would drop a piece of meat or that some kids would ride bikes by so they could run and bark. After no action for a few minutes Bentley was making his way back to the porch. All of the sudden Pierre comes racing up to him and begins a wrestling match! Bentley didn’t really want to wrestle but they did their usual snappy jumpy roughhousing. It didn’t last a minute, but it is what happened afterwards that had us laughing.

What Do the Bayou Boys Do on Their Days Off?

You are probably wondering what the Bayou Boys are doing with their extra days off during the week. I thought it’d be best to show you in pictures. 
We did some grillin’ and chillin’ Monday. It was a gorgeous day with a nice breeze. The boys love spending time on the patio under the ceiling fan.

BFTB NETWoof News April 8, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to this week’s BFTB NETWoof News. All of our stories this week are 100% real but we sure had fun with last week’s April Fools’ Day broadcast! Let’s start off with Pierre and our top story.”

Ears to Dr. Harvey's

   Into most dog’s life, a bit of ear trouble must fall. Basset Hounds are notorious for having ear infections. Bentley suffered with them for the first 8 years of his life until I discovered a DIY formula that put an end to his chronic ear infections. This formula is great for his inner ears but does not do anything to keep his long ears free of dirt and ear wax. For that job, I fetch my bottle of Dr. Harvey’s Herbal Ear Wash.
Dr. Harvey's Herbal Ear Wash
   Dr.Harvey’s Herbal Ear Wash is a wonderful alternative to chemical ear washes. It is made in the USA and is anti-fungal, antibacterial, and antiviral.

   Like most dogs, Bentley watches every move I make. He knows when it is ear cleaning time so when I apply the liquid to the cotton pad, he walks over for his ear wash! Remember, NEVER insert a swab or cotton pad into your dog’s ear canal.

World Party Day

   April 3rd is World Party Day! This holiday was created way back in 1996 with the concept that humans (and animals) have the right to joy and peace. It is meant to support positivity and fun with a worldwide day of partying.
   Such a holiday is at the very heart of what the Bayou Boys believe to be their purpose in life. We are going to look back at a few epic parties to prepare for today.
