BFTB NETWoof News December 11, 2017

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to this week’s BFTB NETWoof news. We have once again fetched some excellent stories that should make you smile. Pierre, what’s our top story?”
BFTB NETWoof News Top Story on adoption
Pierre Westie: “You know we love a sweet rescue story, so we chose the story of a man’s travels to rescue his best friends. Michael Henn is a member of Nebraska’s National Guard and went to the island of St. Croix to help after Hurricane Maria. That is where he met two dogs and knew he had to make them part of his family. The dog’s owners had recently passed away and Henn was assured that he could adopt them. It wasn’t quite as simple as he was led to believe but soon the two dogs were waiting for him in a North Carolina shelter. After a twenty-hour drive, he was reunited with the dogs. We know they will be having a very happy holiday season this year!”

BFTB NETWoof News report on Instagram
Bentley: “We have all seen the stories of innocent animals being injured or killed while thoughtless humans try to take selfies with them. Instagram has issued a ban on photos that could endanger exotic animals. Any posts using hashtags like #koalaselfie #lionselfie or #tigerpet will be removed and the person searching those words will see a pop-up warning. Hopefully, it will help keep the wildlife safe.”
BFTB NETWoof News about guard dog and Hillary Clinton
Pierre: “We don’t report on human politics. Everyone has their own opinions and it is usually not a funny or feel good story. However, we simply couldn’t help but share this funny story. Two security dogs reacted to a crate prior to a Miami art show opening. Police shut down the area while the suspicious crate was opened. The dogs had reacted to a portrait of Hillary Clinton sporting shaggy pink hair and a studded jacket! It was shocking but completely safe.”
BFTB NETWoof News on fox stealing cat's bed
Bentley: “I saw the painting and I’d have alerted to it too. Speaking of shocking, I want this to serve as a warning to our feline friends. George, a cat in London was let out the kitchen window for its morning stroll in the garden and when he returned, someone was sleeping in his bed! A fox had entered the window and was asleep in the cat’s bed on the window sill. Poor George had hissed and fussed but the fox ignored him. When the lady of the house woke up and walked passed the kitchen, she realized that was not her cat in the bed! She managed to move the fox out of the window but said it left a horrible smell. They need to change that saying to ‘when the cat’s away, the fox will play and steal his bed’.”
Paisley the Weather Lab's forecast
Paisley the Weather Lab: “I haven’t seen any fox, but we have deer in our woods. They have never tried to take my bed or place on the couch. That would freak me out!
   The weather forecast isn’t too freaky this week. That’s a big difference since last week there was snow in Texas and Louisiana! We will be back to more normal temps in the 70’s during the day. I’m expecting mild and sunny weather all along the southern states. The west coast will continue to be dry and warm which is not much help to the fires in California. I wish there was rain in the forecast. Please stay safe out there. 
   Our friends in the PNW will have sunny skies but as we go along to the northern states, it changes from cool to downright cold with snow storms likely. If you live in the center of our country, enjoy a pleasant week with sunshine and mild temperatures. 
   As always, stay tuned to your local weather for updates and warnings.”
Bentley: “We want to remind you to enter for a chance to win one of three awesome prize packages in The Decade of Bentley giveaway. You can fetch free points each day so hop over to our entry page. We will have the winners on Wednesday, our fourth blogiversary. 
   Time is running out for Christmas shopping, so we have some great gift ideas that you still have time to order this week. We also must show you a couple of my birthday gifts that you might want to add to your Santa list. I know that it is a hectic time of the year and we really appreciate you spending a few minutes each day with us. Be sure to go out and grab yourself some happy!”

  8. Well....we aren't too happy with cats, so we're glad the fox got in its bed. We had to take three detours on our morning walk because of cats. Also, we love happy stories, glad those dogs found a new loving home.
