BFTB NETWoof News February 12, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News and weather for the week of February 12, 2018. We hope that you enjoy the news including our top story. For that, let me toss it over to my co-anchor Pierre.”

Pierre Westie: “This story is very sweet and perfect for the week of love. A family discovered a woodchuck not moving in their backyard and feared the worst. They decided to pick it up with a shovel and give the poor thing a burial but when the shovel touched it, they noticed a slight movement. To get help, they called a local wildlife rehabilitator who rushed over to assist. She took the woodchuck home and began intensive care to get fluids and food in the wild animal. Over the next few weeks, the woodchuck started feeling better and became quite the snuggler with her rescuer.

   Once the critter was able to walk, the foster mom noticed it would walk in circles with its eyes only half opened. She decided to take it to a vet for further help. That is when she discovered the woodchuck was blind. Knowing survival in the wild was not possible, she decided to keep the fur ball she named Coco as her own. We are happy to report that Coco is thriving and has even become a comfort friend to other animals the rehab worker rescues!”

Bentley: “We can all appreciate the kindness of strangers. I think the woodchuck is paying it forward.
   This next story is concerning a new internet craze that we hope will go away as quickly as it began! We are talking about the Egg Challenge many pet parents are sharing online. The idea is to put a raw egg in your dog’s mouth to see how they will react. While this might seem funny to some, as a dog I would like to say, stop it!
   Not only is it messy, there is a danger of your dog choking on the egg or crunching it and getting sharp egg shells stuck in its throat or stomach. It is not a good idea to just stick an egg in your dog’s mouth for a few thumbs up on the internet. #JustMyOpinion
Pierre: “We love boiled eggs in our meals but not a fan of the raw egg. They are too slimy for this Westie.
   Our last report will give you all the good feels! It started when a group of guys went to a bachelor’s party weekend and one of them brought his dog along. The dog led them to an overturned boat and refused to leave. They turned the boat over to discover two tiny kittens. No mother cat came to get them so the men did the right thing and rescued the little babies. The fun weekend turned into a trip to the vet and kitty sitting. Of course, two of the bachelors adopted the kittens and they are all living happily ever after.”
Bentley: “It is certainly not the time of year for baby animals to be outside on their own! We are experiencing another freezing weekend here on the bayou. What does the week ahead look like, Paisley?”
Paisley the Weather Lab: “It is definitely cold in much of the country. The south will warm up later this week, but it will be cloudy and cold for a couple more days. 
   Let’s look at the Pacific northwest where they can expect some rain. Going across the northern states, it will be very cold and snowy so bundle up! Along the east coast, I am predicting rain and showers off and on all week. That rain will be coming from the middle of the U.S. and should arrive on the coast midweek.   
   Our friends on the west coast can relax with the warmer sunny weather they are famous for enjoying. The Rockies area will be cloudy and cool. 
   Spring is not too far away so let’s try to be positive about these last few weeks of winter. I’ll be reporting high temperatures before we know it! As always, tune in local weather for updates and warnings in your area.”
Bentley: “That is BFTB NETWoof News for this week. I’m not sure if we will be reporting the next couple of Mondays as we are in the process of packing and moving. You can rest assured that we will be back as soon as possible with the news to start your week off with a smile.
   We have a couple of exciting reviews on products that are helping us during the stress of our home being full of boxes and things changing on a daily basis. Mom says it is difficult to explain what is going on to us but thankfully, she has found some ways to help. Extra hugs and playtime helps all of us cope. 
   Have a super week and be sure to grab yourself some happy.”

  6. Good luck with the move. And thanks for sharing the story about Coco and the kitties this week. They made me smile. And we're with you on the Internet egg thing. First teens eating Tide-pods and now eggs for fur-babies? How dumb.

    1. Thanks so much! I don't understand how anyone would actually eat a Tide pod! It's no wonder we read such bizarre warning labels on things! LOL!

  7. We have never had raw eggs to eat, except for the time I stole some from a robin's nest that was foolishly built on the lowest branch of the pear tree. This was many years ago when I was a pup.

    1. Both of the boys would drop the egg and make a mess. Pierre probably wouldn't take it in the first place since he has trust issues. LOL!
