|"Welcome to the world!"|
Pierre: “That’s just awesome. There is nothing like a litter of puppies to start the week off with a grin. Did you watch the Purina National Dog Show on Thanksgiving? It was so fun. BFTB was cheering for the good-looking Bloodhound Nathan. It was nice to see a hound take the title. Wait a minute, I didn’t write that part. I wanted the Westie to win!”
Bentley: “Sorry, my bad. Our teleprompter must be messing up today. *wink-wink I think most folks cheer for their particular breed. I howled for the Basset Hound. I was proud to see Nathan win. He is probably a distance relative once or twice removed. Maybe…possibly. *cough If y’all did not catch our newsbreak last week, the village of Moreauville is not enforcing the BSL that was to begin December 1st. According to the Repeal BSL Moreuville Facebook page, a meeting will be held tonight to decide whether to repeal the ban. We are happy to announce that Pawtucket, Rhode Island lifted their ten-year ban on Pit Bulls. We will keep you updated on the outcome down south.”
Pierre: “I feel certain the people of Moreauville and the rest of the world will be rooting for them to make the right decision. Here is a story about helping people and shelter dogs that will restore some faith in humans. A groundbreaking program, K9 Connection in Santa Monica, California has worked with at-risk teens in training shelter dogs. It helps the dogs become easier to adopt. Over the last ten years, this non-profit group has seen a remarkable difference in the teenagers that join the program.”
Bentley: “That’s right. Some of these kids have never experienced love, empathy, pride, responsibility, or affection. If you think about it, that’s the same things we see in shelter dogs. When paired together, both the teen and the dog begin to bloom. It has opened feelings in the youth that is making such a difference in their outlook. We give K9 Connection a High Five Paw Slap! Do we have anything on the sports desk?”
Pierre: “I am so glad you asked; this next story is definitely “Aww-inspiring.” Snicker A team of extreme athletes from Sweden was competing in a 430 mile Adventure Racing World Championship through the Ecuadorian Amazon. Let me clarify that this Amazon is nothing like the one where you are Cyber-Monday shopping. This is the real McCoy. Anyway, these dudes were sitting down to eat before starting a dangerous 20-mile trek through the rainforest. One of the men noticed a pitiful stray staring at him. He tossed the dog a meatball that it devoured. When they started to continue their journey, the dog followed them and didn’t stop. The group of four men began calling the dog Arthur. Their new four-legged friend participated in every grueling feat. He swam beside their kayak down rivers, climbed hills and trudged through knee-deep muck. At one point, the team tried to leave him behind because of the inherent dangers they were facing. Arthur refused to be left behind. He began swimming in a dangerous area and the team pulled him into their boat. It was obvious they had a new team member. After finishing the race, they took Arthur to a local vet to be checked. He had a few things that needed attention after this extreme adventure. We are happy to report the captain of is adopting Arthur. When we come back, Bentley will tell what we can expect with the weather.”

|"Woo Hoo! It's my birthday party!"|
Bentley: “Thanks for staying with us. The weather forecast is another mixed bag of tricks. Some much-needed rain is expected for California. Our northern friends will need to bundle up for their walks. Y’all are going to receive more snow and plunging temperatures. Here along the bayou, we are expecting rain today with colder weather moving our way. My personal prediction for Wednesday is for sunshine, balloons, birthday cake, presents, and a super fabulous giveaway. Did I mention my birthday is December 3rd? Everyone is invited to stop by for some fun.”
Pierre: “We wanted to give a shout out to our friends at The Poodle and Dog Blog for the story of Arthur. If you have a story that you’d like to see on BFTB News, please let us know. There are also some vacancies that need to be filled in Blogville. If you are interested in getting involved, contact Mayors-elect Murphy & Stanley for jobs in administration, Commissioner Sarge for the police recruits, and Susie & Sidebite for the choir. Does that about wrap it up for this week?”
Bentley: “I think we have covered some of the most tail-wagging stories. This is an exciting week with lots of laughs so be sure to visit each day. Thanks for tuning in to BFTB NETWoof News. Be sure to grab yourself some happy this week.”
