BFTB NETWoof News September 25, 2017

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for September 25, 2017. We have fetched some great reports for you today so let me throw it over to my co-anchor Pierre for the top story.”
BFTB NETWoof News Top Story on Mexican earthquake and hero dog

Pierre Westie: “As we all know when there is a natural disaster, humans often rely on specially trained dogs to help. That was the case last week in Mexico when a horrible earthquake hit and trapped people beneath the rubble. A Golden Retriever named Frida, who is deployed by the Mexican navy, has been called in to help. She is equipped with protective goggles and boots so she can search without getting injured. Frida is being hailed a hero for her rescue work.”
BFTB NETWoof News on distillery cats
Bentley: “You probably know that Kentucky is famous for making fine bourbon. What you might not know is that behind every great bourbon is a distillery cat. Bourbon requires corn, rye, and wheat which attracts field mice. The cats are important in keeping the pesky varmints out of the building. The Old Taylor Distillery will soon reopen as Castle and Key. They have already hired Rick the distillery cat! It appears Rick might be more of a social cat rather than a top-notch mouser. He is usually seen lounging around wearing a bow tie and greeting people. We think Rick has a good gig and wish him the best of luck in his new job.”
BFTB NETWoof News featuring The Returns 2 ~ Showstoppers
Pierre: “This next story seems to be taken from the pages of The Returns 2~ Showstoppers.←affiliate link You know, it’s Mom’s book that has me on the cover. The book’s plot focuses on the Returns trying to stop a ring of dognappers and it is a fun-filled adventure. The real-life dognapping that recently happened in Washington state was not fun. Police were able to find the RV with ten dogs inside. It was stolen from the owner on Friday and recovered Saturday. Thankfully, all the dogs were okay and one person was taken into custody.”
BFTB NETWoof News featuring a mother goose
Bentley: “Police officers are ready to respond to any crisis but a recent emergency was not an everyday occurrence. A goose was biting the police car and refused to stop. She was honking as if she wanted the officer’s attention. He decided to follow her and was surprised when she led him to one of her goslings entangled in a balloon string. His partner came to help and they were able to free the baby much to the delight of its mom. The officers remind everyone about the dangers of balloons when they are let go. They always come down and can cause a lot of trouble for wildlife.
   It’s time to check in with our incredible Weather Lab Paisley for this week’s forecast.”
BFTB NETWoof Weather Lab and forecast map
Paisley the Weather Lab: “This is the first full week of fall but I don’t think anyone told Mother Nature. The northeast coast will continue to be warm and even hot all the way down to Florida. If you live in the Carolinas, please keep an eye on Hurricane Maria. She is not expected to make landfall but could cause trouble with riptides.
   Showers and storms are on tap for the center of our country and along the Gulf Coast. Those living in the north will have partly cloudy along with mild weather but it’s still going to be warmer than normal. The west coast should be warm with temps getting hotter the further south you live.
   As always, keep up-to-date on any weather changes with your local stations. Take care and have a great week.”
Bentley: “Thank you, Paisley. We are ready for some cooler days down here on the Bayou.
   On behalf of the BFTB News team, we hope our readers enjoyed today’s report. We would love you to share us with your friends. This is going to be a fun week as we have some exciting things planned. Stop by and see for yourself each day.
   As we sign off, take care and be sure to grab yourself some happy!”

  6. We salute Frida the amazing search dog. Fascinating fact about on the need for distillery cats-I had no idea. And that story about the goose was pretty amazing. It never ceases to amaze me how animals communicate their needs to humans. Wonderful news reporting on this first Monday of Autumn. ๐Ÿ

  7. Great report!

    When Dad was younger,(and dinosaurs walked the earth) he had a job in a paper mill for a while. There was a feral cat that lived there who always happened to show up at lunch time to collect his pay, which was nibbles from everybody's lunches.

    1. I can imagine that a paper mill is another place where cats would be very useful! I'm glad that it was fed by the employees. That's sweet.

  16. Thanks a lot, boys. Mommy showed us that story about Frida the Golden Retriever saving lives in Mexico. She went on and on about what a great dog Frida is and all the great work she's done. And then she had the nerve to look at the two of us, lounging on our beds with our toys and waiting for our food to be prepared, and she said, "So what have you girls done lately?"
