Will It Snow?

Pierre Westie: “Oh my dog! Have you seen the weather report for the bayou? It is supposed to ice and snow tonight. This is a rare occurrence for us. We enjoy watching the humans react.”
Bentley: “It all began when our local meteorologist used the “s” word. Absolute panic set in among the humans. This is because NOBODY knows how to drive in the snow. We do not have machines that deal with ice and snow so getting out on the road is never a good idea. That means people rush to the grocery store while it was still in the upper 50’s today to stockpile bread, milk and water.”
Pierre: “The next thing everyone does is watch the tv to see if they are canceling school! The weatherman said the arctic blast is coming tonight while we sleep. It is supposed to be ice followed by snow. According to the scroll across the tv all schools, government offices, libraries are closed, and the city transit will not be running. These decisions were all made while it was sunny and 59°F. I’m sorry if I sound cynical but I’m almost 7 years old and I’ve seen snow once. Mom says she’s lived here most of her life (1,000 years or so) and can probably count on two hands when there has been more than a dusting of snow.”
Bentley: “Well, it could happen. I need to be prepared mentally to go outside and do my business on ice. Brrrr! There won’t be anything fun about that but if it does snow, we can have a blast running and playing in the white stuff. I’ve heard it’s important to avoid any yellow snow.”
Pierre: “I just hope that I don’t disappear under the snow. This is going to call for my colorful PrideBites hoodie! Do we have enough food and water? Should I panic???”
Me: “Boys, it is only supposed to snow 2”. Y’all are going to be fine. IF and I do mean IF it really does snow, we will play in the yard and then come back inside to snuggle. It should be very exciting while it lasts so expect a lot of photos. I’m sure it won’t last but one day. The weatherman also predicts temperatures back in the upper 60’s on Saturday.” #24HourWinter

Barker and The Beast ~ A Love Story

GoDog RhinoPlay Beast blue and yellow ball in package.
Barking from the Bayou received a GoDog RhinoPlay Beast ball in exchange for an honest review. We only share products we love and believe our readers will enjoy learning about. This post does contain Amazon affiliate links. We will receive a small commission if you make a purchase via these links at no additional charge to you.
   One of the first toys pet parents get their puppy is a ball. We have a wide array of balls in different sizes and textures. Pierre loves most toys but gets the most fun and exercise out of a ball. He was so excited when goDog® sent us one of their Rhino Play™ balls. He barked like crazy until I gave it to him. They are known for their durable toys which is important when you have a certain Westie that likes to kill toys.
Pierre Westie: “Now hold it right there. It’s been months since I’ve killed a toy. Moles on the other paw are a different story. Hee hee!
   Do you mind if I go ahead and do our review? After all, I am the expert when it comes to The Beast™.

Mole in the Hole

Pierre Westie: “I am considering pleading the fifth amendment if I am brought in for questioning in the untimely death of this vermin. It is a mole and while I know all critters deserve to live a long and healthy life, they are not welcome to make themselves at home in my backyard. I am sure that you’ve heard the old saying about making mountains out of mole hills. Well, there is a reason for that. One mole can dig 150 feet in a day. These tiny little insectivores can destroy your backyard in no time! They dig tunnels right below ground level and it drives me crazy. I can hear them down there munching on grubs, worms, beetles and other gross things.

BFTB NETWoof News January 8, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to our first BFTB NETWoof News of 2018. We have really missed reporting for the last couple of weeks so let’s get right to our top story. I’m sure Pierre has a great one to kick off the new year.”
BFTB NETWoof News report on duck with 3D leg
This is my friend's duck!
Pierre Westie: “As a matter of fact, the duck in our top story might be able to kick again thanks to its new 3D leg! Some eighth-grade science students in Armorel, Arkansas came to the rescue of an eight-month-old Indian Runner duck named Peg after one of its legs was eaten by a turtle when it was a tiny duckling. The students heard of Peg’s plight and decided to build a prosthetic leg to help. It took over 30 tries to get it perfect but they succeeded in giving the duck a leg up on life!”

Quick Bath and Tushee Wipes from Head to Tail

   Bentley is such a sweetheart and I love him more than words can express. But let’s face it, there are days when he smells like a hound dog. That usually means dragging out the dog shampoo, brushes, blow dryer and towels. I’m lucky that he loves a bath but it’s not always convenient. Those are the times I am so glad we discovered IVC Quick Bath® pre-moistened wipes.

   These heavy-duty wipes are extra thick and remove loose hair along with dirt. It leaves Bentley smelling great with a shiny coat. I prefer using wipes instead of putting him the tub during the winter months. Quick Bath Wipes can be a real nose-saver when your pup smells a little ruff! Psst...they are available for cats too!

Bentley Basset Hound: “You may remember last spring when Pierre took over the blog to brag about his new microfleece blanket from PrideBites. He loves it and I must admit being a little jealous of how cozy he looked snoozing under and on top of it.
   Santa Paws must have known because look what he brought me! That’s right, it’s a PrideBites blanket and mine is a sherpa/fleece combo. It is the best of both worlds.
