BFTB NETWoof News November 13, 2017

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for November 13, 2017. We are tail-wagging happy to have you here and have fetched some great stories to start your week. Pierre, what is our top story?”
BFTB NETWoof News Top Story: Dog playing sick

Pierre Westie: “It is a hilarious story of Sullivan, a dog that lives with his humans in Utah. His mom came home to see him on her lunchbreak and he was excited to spend time in the middle of the day with her. He was running around and playing but when it was time for her to return to work, Sullivan seemed to come down with a horrible cough. She couldn’t take off to stay with him, so she called her husband who hurried home to keep a watchful eye on their pup. 
   Comforted by his dad, Sullivan’s cough disappeared as suddenly as it began. That is until the next morning when the couple was getting ready for work. Dad stayed home again and took the dog to see the vet. After a clean bill of health, it was concluded the dog was faking his cough to get his people to stay home and shower him with attention! They even got a second opinion and the conclusion is Sullivan is not only healthy but a terrific actor.”

Bentley: “Our next story should serve as a warning to all of our box-loving feline friends. A cat in Italy decided to hop into a box and take a snooze unbeknownst to her owner who taped the box up and shipped it off to its destination. 
   It was four long days before packaging handlers noticed that one of the boxes was moving and decided to open it up. Imagine their surprise when the cat jumped out! They immediately began looking for the cat’s owner who had been searching for her best friend the entire time. 
   We are happy to report that they have been reunited and other than being dehydrated, the cat is perfectly healthy. Hopefully, she will stay out of packing boxes in the future!
BFTB NETWoof News story on stray dog and puppies

Pierre: “A stray dog in Dallas had successfully eluded capture and apparently enjoyed his life on the lam. He would run whenever someone would try to capture him.   Rescuers were used to seeing him and always tried to help to no avail. That is until one day when he led them to a place outside of a local forest. They were stunned to see the stray had taken them to a mother dog and her ten puppies. 
   The stray allowed rescuers to bring him, the mommy dog and her family into the shelter. Instead of being a stray, he now answers to the name Hero! News of the puppies spread and there is a waiting list for all of them. Way to be awesome, Hero!”
BFTB NETWoof News reporting on 4Knines article about pet cancers
Bentley: “Our mom has written another article that is appearing on 4Knines. November is Pet Cancer awareness month, so she is sharing some very valuable information on the subject. It would really be great if you could take a couple of minutes to read and comment on the article for her. 
   Let’s check in with our Weather Lab for this week’s forecast. Paisley, how’s it looking out there?”
BFTB NETWoof Weather forecast with Paisley the Weather Lab
Paisley the Weather Lab: “It should be a great week for most of the country as far as the forecast looks. The Pacific Northwest will have some scattered showers and across the northern states it will be cool. There is a chance of snow mixed in with some of the showers too. The New England area will be a bit warmer, so everyone needs to enjoy it before the snows hit! Along the east coast, there’ll be late week showers. Most of Florida can expect sunny and mild weather with some clouds. Here in the south, it will be warm and breezy. As we look at the west coast, you can dress for mild weather with some midweek rain. Across the center of the United States, it will be mostly sunny with some showers around Tennessee.
   As we all know, winter is just around the corner and it will bring snow and frigid temperatures. You should get outside and soak up the fall weather while we have it. Always keep an ear to your local stations for impending storms or warnings. I hope your week is amazing!”
Bentley: “That wraps up this week’s BFTB NETWoof news and weather. I hope that we put a smile on your face today. Be sure and join us all week for new reviews, fun photos and some great tips. 
   If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours. Now, go out and grab yourself some happy!”

  3. You have some amazing stories! Sullivan is one smart pup! I've been wanting to ship cat bro Bert away in a box, now I have hope that a plan could work! Have a great week!

    1. Sullivan is quite the schemer! You know that you'd miss Bert if you shipped him away. Who would you blame things on if he was gone?

  4. Wow, dogs are so much smarter than we give them credit for, aren't they? Both Sullivan and Hero are amazing.
    I sometimes suspect that Luke pretends to see stuff outside, or that he wants to go out when I'm eating so I'll leave my food unattended! He knows I'll go look (though I'm learning to put my food out of reach when I do that now!).

  5. I shouldn't be, but always am surprised by how smart our furry family members are. I've been saying, for many years now, it is like having a toddler who never learns to speak. Crazy smart though! I'm glad to hear the kitty is safe and home so we can laugh at her story.... MOL! You wrote an excellent post for Canine Cancer Awareness!
