Bentley: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News. We have fetched some feel-good stories for you today. I am joined at the news desk by Pierre the Westie and our Weather Lab, Paisley. Let’s get straight to our top story.
Pierre: “Well, it has finally happened. For years online dating sites have matched humans with farmers, divorcees, redheads or someone that’s photo you swiped to the left. Many of these have not turned out so well. Now, there is a new app where your date will be a real dog. Seriously, it will be a four-legged tail-wagging canine. It’s called Bark ‘N’ Borrow and connects dog owners with professional dog caregivers or dog lovers. The idea is to match dogs that need more attention with humans willing to give some extra time and snuggles. You might say that online dating has really gone to the dogs!”
Bentley: “All righty then. I think I’ll just stick to smelling people to decide if I want to be their friend. Speaking of friends, a Great Pyrenees was spotted on the side of a road in Dallas standing guard over his friend who had been struck by a car. The big dog had drug the injured dog out of traffic. A rescue worker was able to load both dogs into her vehicle and take them to a local veterinarian. Sadly, the friend didn’t survive its injuries, but the Pyr is now available for adoption at SPIN Rescue in the Dallas metro area.
Pierre: “I hope someone rescues that sweet heroic fellow. We have another hero in today’s report and it is a little Dachshund named Tosya. It all started when a black bear attacked a child in a small Russian village. His buddy threw a rock at the bear and hit it in the head. The bear then turned its attention on that child. Rushing in to save the day was Tosya who began barking furiously at the bear. It was at that point the bear stopped biting the second child and gave chase to the brave Doxie. Almost as if it knew exactly what to do, Toysa led the bear back to the woods before giving it the slip and returning to the village as a hero!
Bentley: “That is one brave pup! I heard it was treated to cake after the incident. This next story is one that makes my heart happy. Last week, a shelter in Akron, Ohio held an adoption event. It was a huge success and within ninety minutes, all ninety-three dogs and cats were adopted. For the first time, there was not a single animal left. How about that for some great news! Way to be awesome, Akron!”
Pierre: “As we mentioned last week in sports, our friends from the Liver Killers Team were headed to the Dock Dogs® World Championships. We are so excited to report that they did an incredible job. First, Mrs. Jenny Beadling won the People’s Choice Most Improved Team with Hooch. They went on to place 6th in the World Overall Elite division and 4th in the World Cadet Division Extreme Vertical. Lager placed 6th in the World Overall Senior Division. Cello earned a new personal best in the Extreme Vertical with a grab of 5’6”. She placed 10th in the World Warrior Iron Dog Division! We here at BFTB News salute each of you for a fantastic showing. We couldn’t be prouder of y’all.”
Paisley: “We were able to watch the competition on the computer. Hooch looked so handsome. I am pretty sure that he winked at me for my birthday. *Blushing
Bentley: “Oh that’s right. Our little Weather Lab turned one-year-old this past Saturday. She had a big day of celebrating and gifts. I’m still waiting on my piece of birthday cake, just sayin’.”
Pierre: “Cake? There was cake? Where is mine?”
Paisley: “Ummm, maybe I’d just better give this week’s weather forecast. There is going to be plenty of rain all around. Showers in the northeast and northwest, as well as the center of the country, will keep umbrellas open and windshield wipers swishing. The west coast will be sunny and warm, but up north it will be cold with a chance of snow! Here in the south and on the east coast, we are expecting storms by midweek. Florida is going to be warm and muggy. It is pretty typical weather for the third week of November.”
Bentley: “Great job, Paisley. We hope that everyone has a terrific week. Be sure to join us each day for more fun and excitement. Take care of each other and don’t forget to grab yourselves some happy.”
