Bentley: “Thank you for joining us for our weekly BFTB NETWoof Channel 7 News. Our top story is concerning the healthcare worker in Dallas who has tested positive for the Ebola virus. The mayor has assured the public that the dog will be kept safe for an eventual reunion with his owner. We give Mayor Mike Rawlings a round of a paws for being logical. The government of Madrid, Spain felt the need to euthanize a dog last week. The dog, Excalibur belonged to a healthcare worker who came down with the virus. Spanish officials said the dog posed a risk of transmitting the disease to humans. There are no documented cases, but one major study suggests a dog can get Ebola without showing symptoms. The Spanish patient is in stable condition and shows signs of slight improvement. I hope nobody tells her about Excalibur until she is well. Pierre, what do you have to share?”
Pierre: “Oh Bentley, we certainly have a bowl full of news this week. The whole Ebola thing is like a Sy-Fy movie. I’m not a fan. Did you know today is Columbus Day in some places? Some U.S. cities celebrate Indigenous People's Day in place of Chris’ big day. If we had gone to visit our friends from Love is being owned by a Husky in Canada, today is their Thanksgiving! Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Canadian friends.
Bentley: “I’m going to plead the 5th on that one, my fuzzy co-anchor. October is certainly a busy month. It is also “Adopt a Shelter Dog” month. We think shelter dogs make awesome pets. Mom smelled like diferent dogs after spending the afternoon with PetSavers adoption day at PetSmart. She was really sad when she came home. It seems her buddy Batman that she met on her first adoption day was returned yesterday. Something about chasing the senior cat at his new digs. He had been to the groomer’s and everything. Mom said he is the sweetest guy and has a kissable face. Those are her words not mine. My lips are reserved for Mom and a certain GBGV. We are showing a photo of Batman and ask our readers to share it. He is available at PetSavers in Shreveport.”
Pierre: “I’m sure he will find a forever home soon. I mean, who wouldn’t want to live with Batman? On the subject of bats, we are getting ready for Halloween all over Blogville. Mayoral Candidate Dory is hosting a huge Halloween party. We are having a Spooktacular Blog Hop with our friends Truffles and Oz. Several dogs and cats are having costume contests. This is going to be the best Halloween ever! We really have to decide on a costume this week! Speaking of Dory how is the campaign going for the candidates?”
Bentley: “The campaign trail is hot. Since we will be at her party, we can keep an ear to the ground and dance floor for any
gossip news. The Doodle brother Murphy & Stanley have their ghoulfriends joining them as their dates. All three candidates will have to be up early
on November 1st for the Blogville Town Hall meeting at Mayoress Madi's. Sarge’s place will be the voting location on Election Day Tuesday, November 4th. We urge everyone to vote and have your barks
and mews heard.”
Pierre: “Speaking of barks and mews, a cat in Florida was in dire need of a blood transfusion. Unfortunately, it would take hours to receive feline blood and this feline did not have that time. They did have some donated dog blood in stock and decided to use it to save the cat’s life. It worked and the cat is home convalescing, purr-fectly happy. We are happy to report our Newfie Buddy; Leroy is improving and has begun to bark again.”
Bentley: “That is a great story. We did a story on canine blood donors some time ago. It is a wonderful way to help our fellow dogs and I guess cats now. Is anything going on in the wide world of sports?
Pierre: “A woman in the crowd of a Kansas City Royals game held up a sign declaring that if the Royals won, her boyfriend would get her a dog. Well, thanks to the Royals, she is now the loving pet mom to a 4-year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi he adopted for her. The lucky pup’s name is Lucy. I think I’d have gone with Peanuts or Cracker Jack like the song says to buy. That’s just this reporter’s opinion.”
Bentley: “Mmmm, Cracker Jacks! The weather forecast for this week is wacky once again. It is going to be wet, wet, wet from sea to shining sea. I will be on full alert throughout tomorrow as severe weather crosses our area. I hope you all stay safe, warm, and dry. For Pierre and myself, have an awesome week. Be sure to grab yourself some happy.”
