BFTB NETWoof News November 20, 2017

Bentley Basset: “Hello and welcome to Thanksgiving week’s BFTB NETWoof News. We have fetched some great stories so let’s get right to our top story with my co-anchor Pierre.”
BFTB NETWoof News Top Story woman with dog on backscreen
Pierre Westie: “In a huge scientific study it was concluded that having a dog is good for your health. The study showed people who live with a dog are less likely to die from cardiovascular disease. That is because we help people be more social and get exercise. We can’t walk ourselves, you know. This is another one of those in-depth ‘Duh’ research projects that pet parents have realized all along.”

Bentley: “A rare fossil shark was captured off Portugal recently. Its ancestry goes back some 80 million years! Scientists say it hasn’t changed appearance since the age of T-Rex. The creature’s 300 teeth might have something to do with its survival. You can check out this video to see what it looks like in real life.
BFTB NETwoof News with cat reward announcement
Pierre: “A reward of $100,000 is being offered for the return of two Guinness World record cats in the Detroit area. Arcturus, Cygnus and two other cats have been missing since their home was engulfed in fire last week. The home-owners escaped and left the doors open in hopes their cats could get out safely. They should be easy to recognize since Arcturus is a spotted Savannah that measures 19.5” tall and holds the record for the world’s tallest cat. Cygnus is a fluffy Maine Coon cat with a 17.5” long tail! They are big social media stars and everyone is praying for a safe return of these record breaking felines. You can see photos of them by visiting the site listed in our news sources section below.”
BFTB NETWoof News report on wild boar piglet.

Bentley: “Let’s face it; some animals are not meant to be kept as pets. A San Francisco couple realized this after bringing home ‘Spirit,’ an adorable wild boar piglet. Three months later, it is not so cute anymore. The law prohibits keeping a wild boar as a pet in California. The fact Spirit was turned into the the local animal control is a good example why this law was enacted. Please leave wild animals out in the wild.”
BFTB NETWoof Sports: Bailie GBGV titles

Pierre: “We want to turn our noses to sports and congratulate our buddy Bailie from My GBGV Life. She earned her Nose Work 2 title by finding all 8 hides in the 5 searches. You might remember that she just captured her Level 1 Exterior title only a week earlier! Bailie is rocking the Nose Work world and we are so proud of her and her mom!”
Paisley the Weather Lab: “The GBGV gang is going to need a room just for their awards and titles! Speaking of awards, this week’s weather should get a gold star. Except for the Pacific Northwest, most of the United States can be thankful for sunny skies. 
   The PNW will have rain and wind that could impact flights out of their airports and making holiday travel a nightmare. I’d suggest checking conditions before you head out to avoid problems. 
   The rest of the northern states are going to be cold and fair with possible snow in North Dakota and the Great Lakes regions. The center of our country should count on dry, calm and sunny weather. The east coast and the southern states are going to be able to get out and visit with family or hit the stores on Black Friday since the forecast calls for excellent weather. It will be partly cloudy along the west coast but it’s warm and sunny for the southwestern U.S.
   It is estimated that over 51 million people will be traveling for Thanksgiving. Remember to check the weather for any updates or warnings so that your Thanksgiving trip will be safe and fun.”

Bentley: “We have some really exciting things coming up during the holidays. On November 27, we are joining a group of our blogging friends for a fantastic the 4 Gifts for Pets Blog Hop & Giveaway. You could win some great prizes so stay tuned for more information. 
   This week will be hectic for most of us that are cooking or hitting the road for Thanksgiving, but we will have some wonderful articles to share so don’t forget to stop by and visit.
   On behalf of the BFTB News team, we want you to know how very thankful we are for our readers, sponsors and supporters. Each of you make our days brighter and we want you to go out and grab yourself some happy!

  3. So sad those kitties are missing! I have to say wild boar are very dangerous animals who don't mind killing humans. They are a big problem in Germany and one has to stay away from them. Thanks for mentioning our current nose work ace. We are so proud of her. Mom's office walls are filling fast with all the awards! Happy Thanksgiving week. We are thankful to have your family as friends!

  8. We want money to do one of those studies that show how important dog are to a healthy life and help us live longer. We would just throw a dog party and publish the results.

  9. Didn't need a study to know all the benefits of pet ownership but some people need them (and I hope they will subscribe to a great way of living longer & better!). Fingers and paws crossed for those famous cats. And a thump on the head to the people who thought it was a good idea adopting a wild boar. Have a pawsome Thanksgiving!

  12. 300 teeth! Now that's a smile. SHE had a pet racoon when young. Found as an injured baby along the road. Had to be returned to the wild when he matured, so understand about the cute little piglet.

  13. If it wasn't for my dogs, I would hibernate all winter! They truly do help you to get more exercise, and to be healthier.
    That wild boar piglet was so cute! I can see the attraction, but people need to use common sense!
    Those GBGV girls are always doing something amazing!

    Enjoy your Thanksgiving in Shreveport! Here's hoping LSU wins this weekend. I'm sure my dad will be glued to the tv. I like to remind these Boston folks who don't know anything about college football that LSU is playing, lol. I usually get a few scowls.
