BFTB NETWoof News for October 5, 2015 #DogNews

Bentley: “It’s time for another BFTB NETWoof News where we fetch the best news for the animal lover in you. I’m happy to be sharing the anchor desk with my partner Pierre and our cute Weather Lab, Paisley. What is this week’s top story, Pierre?”
BFTB NETWoof News Top Story news set
Pierre: “Our top story today is a combination of bravery and foolishness. Remember that we do not advocate trying this at home. It seems that there is a real life Goldilocks of sorts in California. The difference is that three bears came to this 20 lb. French Bulldog’s house looking for some porridge and a bed. The pup bravely charged the bears and we are happy to report that the bears actually fled the scene. I don’t know about y’all but I will chase a squirrel or a rabbit however if a bear shows up, I’m not going outside!”
Bentley: “That is probably the best idea.  It is because of those dreadful fires that have the wildlife coming into to the neighborhoods. We advise using precaution if you happen upon any of these forest creatures. Our next report is one that we aren’t sure is a good idea either. It is now possible to clone your dog. A company in Seoul, South Korea offers to clone for a mere $100,000. Sooam Biotech used skin cells from a dog and injected it into a donor egg that had been emptied of its original DNA. The result was two dogs that are genetically identical, but not exact replicas of the original dog. So far, around 600 clones have been produced at this company. Personally, I find it kind of creepy and don’t want my mom to have another Bentley. I am definitely one of a kind.”
Pierre: “Yeah, I love ya’ but one of you is enough. This last story is also about humans messing with the animal kingdom. A Chinese science center has created a micro pig. They will soon be available for purchase at a cost of about $1,500 in U.S. currency. As with all types of genetic modifying, this new breed of pig is sparking controversy. I just don’t know that the pig needs to be made into a micro version. How do y’all feel about humans messing around with an animals DNA? Would you consider cloning your dog or buying a tiny pig?”
Bentley: “I know one thing that will remain the same. That’s our Halloween Spooktacular Blog Hop. We are teaming up with our friend Sugar the Golden Retriever for a fun-filled hop with a prize package by Dr. Harvey’s! You can join the fun on Friday, October 30th thru that Sunday. We will have more details in the next couple of weeks, but be sure to mark it on your calendars.”
BFTB sports desks with Walk Your Dog Week story
Pierre: “That is always so much fun! In the sports department, we are glad to announce that we are smack dab in the middle of National Walk Your Dog Week. Walking is one of our favorite things to do as a family. Thankfully the weather has cooled down just in time for us to take part in the challenge. You can find more information and win prizes from the gangs at Cascadian Nomads, Wag N Woof Pets, and Dolly the Doxie.
Bentley: “The fun doesn’t stop there. My sweetie, Emma and her sisters at My GBGV Life are joining with Slim Doggy, and To Dog with Love for their annual Fall Fitness Challenge. They have some great prizes to win too. We urge you to get out and enjoy the cooler temperatures with your dog. Speaking of cooler temps, Paisley are you ready with this week’s forecast?”
BFTB Weather set with three dogs
Paisley: “You betcha! First we need to remember our friends on the east coast that are suffering through torrential rains and flooding. They will have a couple of dry days, but more rain is heading their way towards the end of the week. Most of the country will have nice weather with temperatures in the 50’s and 60’s. There will be some rain for the New Mexico, Colorado, and on up through Utah this week. It won’t come close to the problems in the east, though. I want everyone to stay safe and if you are in the storm area pay close attention to your local weather forecasts. Hopefully, next week’s forecast will have nice weather across the country.”
Bentley: “I sure hope so, Paisley. That was another outstanding report. We thank you for stopping by today and hope to see you all week as we discover some amazing treats on Tuesday and enjoy some terrific stories the rest of this week. As you know, our Twitter buttons don’t work, so we ask that you please share our tweet below. From the BFTB NETWoof news team, have an awesome week and grab yourself some happy every chance that you get!”

  5. Great news coverage, pals. I do not think my Ma would want a clone of me as the clone would never be able to be as good as the original! BOL And now tiny pigs?!? Come on...when will humans stop messing with animals?!?

  7. Cloning causes a lot of pain to the surrogate mother. It is animal cruelty and should be stopped.

  8. Thanks for mentioning our FitDog Friday Fall Fitness Challenge. Sounds like lots of big events going on this month! As for bears, did you know the Kuvasz would actually go after bears in the wild. They are tough dogs, but these days, I don't think Katie would try it. Have a great week!

  13. There's so much fun stuff going on! Thanks for sharing about our Dog Walking Week celebration.

    We think it's creepy and wrong to mess with DNA. But hey, even if we believed, we don't have $100,000 lying around to clone any of our pets!

  16. Every time I see that video of the dog and the 2 bears, I think that was a very lucky dog. One swipe and ... I hate to think of it. Thankfully the bears were scaredy bears.

  17. That whole messing with Mother Nature thing is a bad idea. We all know "she" has no sense of humor and when you least expect it...BAM!
