BFTB NETWoof News October 9, 2017

Bentley Basset Hound: “Greetings from BFTB NETWoof News. This is our report for the week of October 9, 2017. For our top story, let’s turn to my co-anchor, Pierre.”
BFTB NETWoof News top story: Golden Retriever on backdrop
Pierre Westie: “Today our top story shines a spotlight on the amazing Golden Retrievers from the Lutheran Church Charities K9 Comfort Dogs. Nineteen specially trained
dogs accompanied their 30 human handlers to Las Vegas last week. These dogs were instrumental in bringing much-needed solace to victims after the tragic shooting that left so many dead and other suffering. This group has been on the ground to provide help after Hurricane Harvey and Irma as well as the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012.
   After being among so much sadness, the dogs can become depressed. To unwind they get to play ball and run around outside. We salute this hard-working group and all rescue/comfort dogs.
BFTB NETWoof News about rescue cats featuring a black manx
Bentley: “This was a week for awesome rescue stories and we love to share stories about humans doing good for animals. A police officer in Boca Raton, Florida has rescued 63 cats and kittens over the past two years. She brings them home, nurses them back to health and places them in forever homes. She pays for their vet care out of her own pocket and even bottle feeds those that need it on her breaks from patrolling. She is a true-blue hero!”

Pierre: “Our next rescue proves that their ain’t no mountain high enough to stop a rescuer from saving a dog.
People had reported hearing a dog crying somewhere atop Mt. Bross in Colorado. Trinity Smith decided to attempt to locate the dog and made the drive/hike up 14,000 feet above sea level. She could hear the dog but was not able to find it before the sun set. She sought the help of a friend the following day and they made another trek up the mountain. It took three hours but they finally found the emaciated dog and carried it down to safety.
   It turned out that the dog was a missing 14-year-old name Chloe. She had gotten lost on a walk with her family six weeks prior to her rescue. The family quickly showed up to thank the rescuers and shower love on their old friend. Chloe is recovering and has gained some of her weight back. She had lost from 90 pounds down to a shocking 26 pounds during her ordeal. Trinity and her friend have visited Chloe to see how she is doing and are proud to see her back safe at home.”

Bentley: “I don’t mind admitting this last story put a lump in my throat. It involves an Iraq war veteran who suffers from PTSD. He had decided to commit suicide and stepped outside to smoke his last cigarette. As he finished smoking, he heard crying from the bushes. A tiny black and white kitten came out and began to rub against his leg. The veteran sat down in the rain and cried as the kitten comforted him. From that day forward, he left a can of tuna out for his new lifesaver. The kitten started recognizing the man’s voice. He would come and visit each day when the soldier came home from work.
   One day, the cat just disappeared. The man was heartbroken but the bond that he had developed with his furry friend made him realize that he was capable of loving and being loved. He began dating a friend from high school.
   A few months later, they went to a pet adoption event. As they walked through, the veteran felt a paw reach out and swat his leg. He looked and sure enough, it was his black and white friend! They adopted him immediately and named him Scout. Since then, the couple has married and Scout now lives happily with three other cats. That is what we call a happily ever after story.”
BFTB NETWoof Weather with Paisley the Weather Lab
Paisley the Weather Lab: “I love today’s stories. The last one proves that life can always get better if you just keep on fighting.
   I’m sure that you are going to enjoy this week’s forecast. It looks as if fall has decided to make an appearance in many places across the U.S. The Pacific Northwest is entering their rainy season so they will be wet and mild. Across the northern states, it will feel much cooler with partly cloudy skies. Our friends on the east coast can expect rain or storms most of the week. Along the Gulf Coast, we should continue with warm temperatures and a chance of scattered rain. Those along the west coast can enjoy some mild days and overall nice weather. It will actually feel like autumn in the center of our country!
   Always check with your local meteorologists for updates or warnings. Have a wonderful week no matter what the weather is outside.”
Bentley: “We hope that you enjoyed today’s news and would appreciate you sharing us on your social media. Please join us all week for more great products and fun stories. If you aren’t following us on Facebook, you are missing out on some great stuff!
   On behalf of the BFTB News Team; stay safe, be kind, and don’t forget to grab yourself some happy.”

  11. We applaud the canine heroes of the K-9 Lutheran church comfort group. What great work they are doing. The story about Chloe was a big story around our parts. From the kind heartedness of humans, a happy ending for Chloe and her family. Here's to a great week though ours is starting out with a snow storm. Today it'll be winter, tomorrow back to Indian Summer. ❄️ 🍁
