BFTB NETWoof News November 26, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for the last week of November. Did you brave the stores on Black Friday? We are planning on doing a lot of our shopping today on Amazon’s Cyber Monday! For your convenience, we have added a few links to some popular gift ideas. We had better check with Pierre for our top story before he starts his Christmas wish list.”
Pierre Westie: “Thanks Bentley but you know I started my Christmas list in June! One thing that is always on my wish list is for all animals to be treated with love and respect. That is why we are against using wild animals in the circus.
   No matter how much people enjoy seeing elephants stand on barrels or tigers jump through flaming hoops, it is just wrong. That is why we are so happy to announce that more and more places are banning wild animals from circus life. Nineteen countries have banned these animals from performing but sadly, the United States is not one of them.     Several states have prohibited these majestic animals from being forced into circus slavery, but we feel it should be a country-wide ban. Hopefully, the only circus performers in the future will be those incredible acrobats and other humans who choose the circus life.”
Say "no" to dog meat and "yes" to a PrideBites steak toy!
Bentley: “This next story is hard to think about but since it is good news, we wanted to let you know about it.  
   South Korea is dismantling their countries largest canine slaughterhouses due to the intense public outcry. The Taepyeong-dong complex in Seongnam city, south of Seoul, housed at least six dog slaughterhouses that could hold several hundred animals at one time and was a major source for restaurants across the country. The custom of consuming dogs has become less popular with public education of the human/animal bond.
   We are happy to report that the site of so much horror will become a public park.”
Pierre: “Y’all know nothing makes our tails wag faster than an awesome reunion story and this one was four years in the making!  
   Ruger disappeared in Anchorage, Alaska during a storm four years ago. His family searched for their 12- year-old cat for months. They hung fliers and went door-to-door. It seemed all hope was lost when the days turned to months and then years. Needless to say, the family was stunned when an Anchorage Animal Care and Control says staff found Ruger in a night drop-off bin for animals. They quickly scanned Ruger, found the microchip and called his people!
   The truth is simple, microchips save lives and reunite families. Please have your pet chipped, registered and keep your information updated.”

Bentley: “A city on the eastern coast of Sicily has been experiencing torrential rainfall that has caused major flooding. These rains are very dangerous for the homeless dogs who face the real possibility of drowning. That is why a local Ikea store has begun to open its doors to these pups. The dogs come in and have a nice dry place to sleep out of harm’s way. The gesture is not lost on the patrons of the store who seem to enjoy the dogs being in the store and appreciate the kindness of Ikea.
   Let’s check with Paisley for our weather forecast. What does it look like out there this week?”
Paisley the Weather Lab: “Wow! Did winter decide to visit the north for Thanksgiving or what?! I hope that you have your snow tires and shovels ready because the snow is going to keep falling. There are going to be lots of dogs wearing jackets and booties to protect them for the frigid air.
   It’ll be rain for our friends in the Pacific Northwest and in California. We will keep a close eye on the possibility of mudslides after those devastating fires in California.
   The center of the country will be nice and cool while the south is expected to be mild with partly cloudy skies. It’ll continue to be warm in Florida with rain moving in later this week. Those showers will continue up the east coast.
   Be sure to check with your local stations for any updates or warnings. Have a great week y’all!”
Bentley: “That’s it for this week in BFTB NETWoof News. We appreciate you stopping by and hope you visit every weekday for more fun.
   If you are going to be doing any Cyber Monday shopping, we’d sure appreciate it if you’d use our link to Amazon or take advantage of our discount codes listed below.
   Have a terrific week and be sure to grab yourself some happy.”

  1. BRAVO to that IKEA store of sicily. We hope that dog eating will find an end... and we hope that china will follow south korea... at least for the time they are the hosts of the world dog show next year (the most absurd place for world dog show, so no wonder that a lot of people will boycot this event)

  3. How nice for IKEA to let the dogs in, and they don't even have to build the furniture before sleeping on it! Mom used to go to Korea a lot and dog was always served in restaurants. The thought of it made her sick. So glad they are starting to get rid of it and leave the dogs to be dogs alive.

  4. We have heard that most people in Korea are just as disgusted by dog meat as the rest of us. They love their pets.

  5. Thank doG for South Korea. This practice makes us nauseous just thinking about it.
    Mom braved the stores this morning and it was BUSY! She says that she can't imagine going on Black Friday or Saturday and Sunday for that matter!

  6. Whenever I see a sign for a circus, my heart sighs. Luckily that's happening less and less.

  7. Hooray for S. Korea shutting down that factory! Next up, get rid of the disgusting yearly Chinese Yuelin dog meat festival. WARNING: google it if you want to know more about, but prepare to be to be utterly revolted, appalled, and sick for weeks! Just take my word for it.

  8. Well another fine Newsbroadcast.
    We are finished with shopping here.
    Our daughter and son in law asked us to donate to their local humane society and food pantry
    rather than give them gifts. Their county on NC coast was very hard hit by Florence.

  13. We were very happy to see that story about the IKEA store in Italy doing that for stray pups. We have an IKEA near our home and we think it would be a great idea for them to consider letting some of the rescue organizations use one of their aisles for something similar.

    We too are happy to see South Korea rethinking that policy. Who would want to eat us???
