Bentley: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof Channel 7 News. It has been a busy week in the dog world, so let’s get right to the stories. Our top story today; Hello Kitty is not a cat. There seems to be some controversy over whether Miss Kitty White is truly a little girl. Christine R. Yano, the author of "” told the L.A. Times Hello Kitty is a British girl. Sanrio, the company responsible for the Hello Kitty craze is quoted as saying, “Hello Kitty was done in the motif of a cat. It's going too far to say that Hello Kitty is not a cat. Hello Kitty is a personification of a cat." Does this mean the cat is out of the bag when it comes to Hello Kitty? Pierre, what do you think?”
Pierre: “I’m not a big fan of the bow-wearing cat/girl. This reporter would chase her up a tree regardless. Speaking of being a big fan, a Great Dane from Portland is a bit of a fanatic when it comes to socks. With the X-ray vision of 43.5 socks in the Dane's stomach, the DoveLewis Animal Hospital won a $500 second place prize for the 2014 X-Ray Contest from The Veterinary Practice News. After exploratory surgery to remove the socks, I am happy to report the big guy recovered quickly.”
|"It's Bogville's first mayoral debate and you can count on us to have the inside scoop."|
Bentley: It seems that Great Dane took getting its fiber to another level. On the political front, the Great Debate is scheduled for Blogville mayoral candidates Murphy and Stanley a.k.a. the Doodle Brothers and Dory, the lovely Lhasa Apso. . I had a chance to ask each candidate two questions prior to debating. *Cut to audio
**Bentley: "Hello, Miss Dory. Thank you for joining me. I know that you are busy this week. How are you preparing for the debate?"
Miss Dory: “What a good question! Jakey is going over the issues and we are concentrating on the bigger issues. Even more importantly, I am looking for a new dress!”
Bentley: What is your biggest advantage in the debate?
Miss Dory: Wow, I don't know...Murphy and Stanley are going to be tough to beat, but we are lucky to have the "home field" advantage. I also have the experience factor on my side; we have been residents of Blogville for almost 5 years now. All in all, I think it is going to be a pretty tight race!”
Bentley: We look forward to a vigorous debate and I am looking forward to seeing that new dress.”
Miss Dory: “Thanks so much for interviewing me Bentley, we are looking forward to a fun and exciting time both at the debate and on our way to the election!”
Bentley: “I’m here with the Doodle Doods Murphy and Stanley. *Cool Dog Paw Slaps Murphy, I know you boys have had a tough week with the loss of your Cherry Bomb and your brother getting the news his girl Taffy has joined a convent. How are you preparing for this debate with these distractions?
The Doodle Brothers: In an effort to be totally prepared for the Debates, we have been studying current events as well as Blogville history. We have been traveling far and wide and listening to the concerns voiced by the citizens of Blogville. We have also had baths and taken care of other personal thingies.”
Benley: “I know Blogville will be happy to know that your personal thingies as well as your grooming is being maintained. What do you think is your biggest advantage in the approaching debate?”
The Doodle Brothers: “Our biggest advantage is that we are Doodles and everybody loves Doodles. Murphy looks like a Teddy Bear and that appeals to the women. We also play in a famous band, Bad Dawg Agency.”
Bentley Rover Reporter: “Murphy, Stanley I appreciate y’all taking time out from kissing puppies and kitties to answer my questions. We look forward to hearing more from our mayoral candidates on Monday, Sept 22 on Frankie & Ernie’s blog. Frankie Furter will be moderating the event.”
Pierre: “We hope this debate doesn’t turn into a cat fight. Hee hee! Frankie is well known for his cool demeanor. He was the first mayor of Blogville in 2010 and served two terms. I contacted Mayor Emeritus Frankie Furter for his preparations and he assured me it was in good paws. Here is clip of our conversation:
Mayor Furter’s Voice Over: Being Moderator of Blogville's FIRST Ever MayoralDEBATE... is a BIG HONOR, and a BIG responsibility. I had to write the questions and then collect the answers that the Candidates submitted. Those are being kept under STRICT GUARD... in a HERMETICALLY-sealed Mayonnaise Jar on Funk and Wagnall's Porch.”
Bentley: “I think we can all agree that is the safest place to keep important documents. Turning to sports, Jiff a Los Angeles Pomeranian was recently awarded the title of “Fastest Dog on Two Paws” from the Guinness Book of World Records. Jiff can go 16.4 feet in 7.76 seconds on his front paws and can run 32.8 feet in 6.56 seconds on his hind legs. It look like Jiff put the “ran” in Pomeranian! Pierre.”
Pierre: “Be sure to tune in here tomorrow for an inexpensive project that anyone can make for their local shelter. We are joining Tractor Supply Company to lend a paw to local shelters with incredible buys from our neighborhood TSC store. Their big event is September 17 thru 21st.Dog lovers are howling the praises of the great deals available. Bentley, how does the weather look across the nation?”
Bentley: “Our friends in Cabo San Lucas and Baja California need to batten down their hatches against Hurricane Odile. It looks like everyone has a chance of rain showers and cooler temperatures. Autumn will fall on September 22nd and I for one can’t wait to wave good-bye to the dog days of summer.”
Pierre: “Thank you for joining us today on B.F.T.B. Channel 7 NETWoof News.”
Bentley: “For my co-anchor Pierre and myself, have a great day and be sure to grab you some happy!”
