BFTB NETWoof News October 2, 2017

Bentley Basset Hound: “Welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for the first week of October. Who else agrees that this year is flying by us at warp speed? We have some fun stories to help put a smile on your face so let’s get right to it. Pierre?”
BFTB NETWoof News top story on bears in a backyard

Pierre Westie: “We really got a chuckle out of our top story. A family looked in their backyard and saw a bear cub. That was shocking but when the mama bear lumbered in behind her baby, they weren’t sure what was about to happen. The cub was only interested in one thing…the family’s inflatable pink flamingo pool toy! They watched as the little fellow wrestled with the oversized floatie until the mama bear got tired of her child’s antics. When she left, the cub quickly followed her but he took the flamingo with him!”
BFTB NETWoof News on a firehouse cat
Bentley: “I guess all moms struggle with their toddler’s mischief. 
   We love a sweet cat story and this one is hot off the presses with an emphasis on hot. A ginger kitty showed up at a firehouse in Greenville, South Carolina and the chief couldn’t resist its cuteness. The entire group of firefighters quickly fell in love with the little ball of fur. Dubbed Blaze, he makes himself at home and has become the station’s official mascot. He even has a tiny helmet to wear. Blaze is always waiting to comfort the crew after they have been out battling fires. He is definitely the perfect match for the Belmont Fire House.”
BFTB NETWoof News story on dog saving child

Pierre: “We often report on a pet alerting its family to dangerous situations. It has happened again in Australia. A nine-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier named Leala accompanied her family everywhere so when they went to visit friends in a nearby community, she tagged along. The family was inside talking when Leala rushed inside dripping wet and barking frantically. Knowing the was not like her, they jumped up and followed as she led them to a dam.   
   That is when they saw their two-year-old son face down in the water. They got him out and began performing CPR on him until the paramedics arrived. The initial prognosis was grim but we are happy to report the child has made a full recovery. Way to be awesome, Leala.”
BFTB NETWoof News reports on a dog's love
Bentley: “An Emory University neuroscientist has proven what pet parents already knew…dogs love you! This study used an MRI machine to scan the brains of 90 dogs to see what they were thinking. They were able to determine the prefrontal lobe activity of a dog is much like that of a human. That means dogs use the same part of their brain to solve problems that you do. They gave the dogs praise and hot dogs at different times to compare the neurological responses. 
   They discovered dogs loved both food and praise but 20% of them preferred praise. Dogs can also recognize faces. From this experiment they concluded that many dogs prefer praise over food and know their people when they see them. To this I can only say, DUH!?!
   Let’s turn it over to the most recognizable Weather Lab on the Bayou. How about it, Paisley?”
Paisley the Weather Lab: “Greetings y’all! It is feeling a bit more like autumn this week and we actually have some snowfall in the Rockies! The northern states can expect some rain as the cooler weather arrives. The northeast corner of the country will be fair and mild but the east coast will continue to be rather warm. Florida will get some isolated storms. Scattered storms will make their way across the southern states. The southwest will still be hot and sunny but those of you on the west coast can expect milder temperatures and sunshine. The plains are going to be cool while the center of the U.S. will have some midweek storms rumble through. 
   As always, stay tuned for any weather updates and warnings from your local stations. I hope that your week is sensational!”
 Bentley: “We are ready for some crisp cool mornings here, for sure!
   On behalf of the BFTB news team, we appreciate you stopping by for some good news. Be sure and tell your friends about us by sharing this post on social media. 
   Don’t miss a day this week as we have some great things happening. Until next time, stay safe and fetch yourself some happy!”
