Bentley: “Welcome to BFTB Channel 7 NETWoof News for the first week of spring 2015. Those of you in the northeast can put your snow shovels down…while you reheat the coffee and read our news. Can you believe this wacky weather? Luckily, we have our Weather Lab Paisley on the trail of an accurate forecast. As always, my trusty co-anchor Pierre the Westie has our top story. Pierre, it seems a longstanding argument has finally come to an end, so to speak.”
Pierre: “Right you are, my floppy-eared friend. After the patent papers of S. Wheeler, the ‘father of toilet paper” was tweeted last week, it seems we know the way Mr. Wheeler meant for the roll to hang. All of you that said “Over” were correct. The toilet paper was meant to go over. We can only hope this wipes the controversy clean, flushes it down the drain, and doesn’t leave anyone too chaffed. I still don’t see anything wrong with a couple of rapid-fire back leg attempts to cover your business with dirt, but that’s just me. Back to you, Bent.”
Bentley: “Recent studies show that your healthy skin regiment should include some dog. Here are the facts; loving a dog reduces anxiety, helps you function socially, and brings down your stress levels. Lower stress levels mean lower cortisol levels, which in turn makes your skin fresher and healthier. Is there no end to the benefits of having a dog around?”
Pierre: “We do seem to make the world a brighter place. You’d think that humans would appreciate that trait and try to be worthy of our trust.”
Bentley: “Are you having trust issues, Pierre?”
Pierre: “Always, but that’s beside the point. I’m referring to another study that claims dogs learn whether a human is trustworthy. For example, a human pretends to throw a ball for their dog to fetch, when they have not actually thrown the ball at all. It’s not funny to make your dog look foolish. The same thing goes for pretending to offer a treat. I don’t trust anyone who would tease their best friend.”
Paisley: “I’m not teasing when I say that we will be right back after this commercial break.”

Paisley: “Hey, I did my first segue. Now back to tricking and trusting your dog.”
Bentley: “That was perfect and Pierre is right, it’s not nice to trick your dog. However, I still crack up when Mom pretends that she is dying to see if I’ll go all “Lassie” on her! Bahaha! It’s a good thing that she didn’t pursue acting. We’d be in a world of hurt.”
Pierre: “Speaking of hurt; I understand that you are in some pain. Do you want to talk about it?”
Bentley: “I don’t want anyone worrying about me, but if you insist. I have been battling a recurring ear infection for quite some time. We treat it and keep my ears clean. It clears up and in a few weeks or months then, it’s back with a vengeance. When I went to see my vet last week, she recommended that I have a myringotomy procedure. That means they are going to put me under anesthesia and make an incision in my eardrum. Once inside my inner ear, they can clean out the infection that has been hiding deep inside where the medicine can’t work. It is pretty routine and should relieve my ear problems. While I’m there, Dr. Foret is going to clean my pearly whites. It’s important that I have nice teeth for my close-ups.”
Pierre: “You’re going to come home the same day, right? I’d miss your
snoring smiling face.”
Bentley: “Sure, I’ll be home in time for supper. Just keep me in y’alls thoughts. Where’s our Weather Lab? Paisley, it’s time!”
Paisley: “Hiya guys! Spring sprang and brought snow to our friends in New York and that area of the country. It just brought lots of rain to us, but we should dry out for a couple of days. Let’s take a look at the big picture. It’s just a soggy forecast for almost the entire country. On a brighter note, all of this water is going to make some lovely flowers bloom. Seriously, there will be snowstorms in the northern plains and upper Midwest. Rain will make its way from the northwest corner across the rest of the country throughout the week. Sorry that I can’t give y’all bright skies and sunshine, but it’s coming, I promise.”
Bentley: “That’s a fine job Paisley. My, you are growing like a weed. You must be fed and watered regularly too! Hee hee hee! That’s it for BFTB NETWoof News for this week. Thanks for tuning in and be sure to tell your friends about us. Have an amazing week and don’t forget to grab yourself some happy!”
