BFTB NETWoof News October 16, 2017

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to this week in BFTB NETWoof News. It’s been another busy week in the animal world so let’s get to our top story.”

Pierre Westie: “I always like to start out with a report that gives us faith in the humans among us. A woman in Malibu thought she saw an anteater roaming the streets. She called her husband and neighbor who discovered it wasn’t an anteater at all. A coyote had gotten its head stuck in a plastic pipe and quickly disappeared before they could help.
They knew the animal was in grave danger if they couldn’t find it. They spent three and a half days scouring the area for the elusive coyote before finally capturing her. A veterinarian successfully removed the pipe but she had rubbed the hair and skin off her neck/shoulders. After some antibiotics and vet care, she was released back into the wild. You can see when she was released on this video.

Bentley: “The fires in northern California continue to devastate the area causing death and destruction. The owner of Safari West, a wildlife preserve and resort in Santa Rosa had to make the decision to try to save his 1,000 animals or his home. He chose to stay the night at making sure the animals were safe. Sadly, his home was destroyed but none of the animals were lost to the fires.
   We are hoping the first responders are able to get a handle on these fires soon. Stay safe!”

Pierre: “There is a bit of good news for one family who lost their home in the Santa Rosa fires. A man and his brother-in-law walked around barricades, through a creek, and up a steep hill to look for the remains of the family dog. He didn’t want his mother to find their dog along with burnt remains of their home. They were surprised to see the tractor unscathed but the biggest surprise came when their dog, Izzy came bounding out of the ashes! I know that was one happy reunion.”

Bentley: “As we all know, getting adopted from a shelter changes your life forever. When Sigmund the cat wasn’t getting the attention that he deserved, workers began taking photos of him licking the glass. It is something he loves to do so they took advantage of his quirky habit. After posting some hilarious shots, Sigmund found his new family. All it takes sometimes is great photos and captions to capture someone’s heart.  
   Speaking of capturing, we have a friend that captured a new title in this week’s BFTB Sports.

Pierre: “We have watched little Madison from My GBGV Life grow by leaps and bounds this past year. Over the weekend, she passed her birch and anise odor recognition tests! You might remember that she passed the clove test in August. This little girl’s nose knows and we are so proud of her.”
Paisley the Weather Lab: “Way to go, Madison! I think you are going to want to cheer on this weather forecast too!   
   It is going to be glorious for most of the United States this week. The Pacific Northwest can expect scattered showers and Florida will have a few scattered storms. Everyone else can look forward to warm and sunny days and slightly cooler nights. It has been quite some time since we have had such a nice outlook and my tail is wagging in delight!
   Always keep alert for updates from your local stations but for the most part, get out and enjoy your week.”
Bentley: “What a great way to end this segment of BFTB NETWoof News and Weather. Thank you so much for dropping by the Bayou and we look forward to seeing you all week long for more fun and reviews. As always, be sure to go out and grab yourself some happy!”

  1. I'm glad mr. coyote got help... it's sad that the wildlife has to struggle with our civilization-stuff ... but nevertheless I grinned a little as I read about the look of an ant eater...

    1. We aren't very good at sharing the planet with the other animals, are we? I'm sure the coyote was quite a sight!

  2. It is very sad when the wildlife get hung up and need assistance. Glad the coyote was ok in the end. The story about the dog coming to see his peeps is THE best story! We need more like that!

  4. As always, some great happy news and Madison is thrilled to be featured! She is a very proud little girl! Those fires are so scary. We would prefer a hurricane or tornado any day. Fire is very scary and we feel terrible for all the people and animals in those areas. Have a great week!

  13. Poor Coyote! We're glad there were some people who cared enough to go out of their way to help him.

    At the kennels where we stay sometimes, they imported the first GBGV into Oz. They now breed and are establishing the breed here.

    1. It is wonderful that people were able to help the coyote. There aren't too many GBGV's here in the states and Joy has three of them! They are so beautiful.

  18. We sure hope those fires are under control soon. We can't help but wonder how Izzy survived. It just goes to show how smart and resilient animals can be. He must have found a safe place to hide, but how frightening for him!

  20. Such great news this week. We saw a neighborhood coyote earlier ourselves, a handsome girl who made the dogs do double takes. She seemed to be in good shape and we hope she manages to survive in her city setting. All of us at the Ranch continue to pray for the folks and anipals in California and celebrate little Miss Madison's victory. Have a great weekend!
