|Our top story; "The dog ate the homework."|
Bentley: “Happy Holidays y’all! Welcome to the Christmas edition of BFTB Channel 7 NETWoof News. I am your Ho-Ho-Hound Bentley Basset and along with my co-elf Pierre, we are sniffing out all the good news you need to know.”
Pierre: “How come you get to be Ho-Ho-Hound and I’m an elf? Maybe I want to be Pierre Paws or something cool like that. Just sayin’…”
Bentley: “Well, I’m just saying that you’d better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, and I’m telling you why. You can’t be Pierre Paws, because I am already Ho-Ho-Hound. It’s just that “ho” is in my name. That makes it the law. Now, let’s get back to the news Elf Boy.”
Pierre: “It’s all fun and games until you get a lump of coal. I do know one dog that should be scared of getting some coal in his stocking. Roscoe, a five-year old mixed breed decided his human sister’s diorama of a Middle Ages farm would taste really great. The Texas sophomore had completed her project with plastic animals, grass, wood, and metal wire fencing. When the teen’s mom saw the project in shambles, with a lot of pieces missing, Roscoe was rushed to the emergency vet. Sure enough, the vet confirmed the dog had bit most of the farm. Luckily, with the use of an endoscope, the farm pieces were removed. The student took an x-ray as proof to her AP World History teacher. She was allowed extra time to rebuild the farm.”
Bentley: “E-I-E-I-Oww! That is one lesson they both learned the hard way. Here is one dog that will definitely be on Santa’s nice list. Daisy is a brown and white Pit Bull. She had been living on a boat in Sausalito with her human. That is until a torrential rainstorm came by and sunk his boat. Her owner had gone to help a friend and returned to see the mast of his home in the water. He feared that everything he loved in the world was lost to the storm, including his best friend. Little did he know that Daisy had swum 1 ½ miles during the dark storm and walked to a local church. She knew this place, because her owner took her there when he needed a meal. When the owner showed up to eat one Friday, the reverend asked him about the dog. The man explained the dog was gone. The reverend than asked if the dog’s name was ‘Babe.’ The man explained that was her name before she was his. It was then the man of cloth explained the dog showed up and seemed to be waiting for him. They reunited with licks, wags, and tears of joy.
Pierre: “I’m so glad that Daisy is back with her human. This last story is about a man and dog that spend all of their time together. A UK man gave up his job, home, and possessions to bike with his Collie, Nero. He had a welder modify his bicycle with a shelf for Nero to sit on. The two traveled 2,500 miles in two months. The journey was such a success that the team is going to take on Europe!”
|"We will be tracking Santa Paws all of Christmas Eve."|
Bentley: “I’m thinking Nero is going to need to learn how to back pedal. I want all of our readers to know that we are on top of Santa tracking. None of you dogs or cats want to be caught sniffing around when you should be asleep. As you can see from our Sleigh Tracker, we will have the best in dog tracking systems on the jolly old soul.”
Pierre: “Are we going to have a white Christmas? I would really like to build a snowman. Do you wanna build a snowman?”
Bentley: “Just let it go, Pierre. The only thing frozen around here will be some treats if we’re lucky. There is a zero chance of snow on the bayou this Christmas. In fact, it will be a sunny 64˚ on the big day. My sweetie, Emma and some of our other friends in the north may have themselves the white Christmas that we can only dream of here.

Pierre: “Well, I have to confess, my feelings aren’t hurt at the idea of a sunny day. I’m afraid that I’d get lost in a bunch of snow. Speaking of getting lost reminds me of our Christmas card count. I’m sure Gramma is hoping most of her cards were lost in the mail. TeeHee!
Bentley: “I’m sure their cards will come flooding in any day. *spit, sputter, snicker! We do want to thank everybody for all of our paper and ecards. Each one has brought a smile to our faces and a wag to our tails. From BFTB NETWoof News, this is Bentley Ho-Ho-Hound and Pierre Paws saying “Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all and be sure to grab some holiday happy!”
