BFTB NETWoof News May 20, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for May 20, 2019. We are happy to be back behind the news desk bringing you the news you can use. Let’s toss it over to Pierre for our top story.”

Pierre Westie: “Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve had to say good-bye to some pawsome friends. Our orange buddy, Crockett, from The Lone Star Cats was lost in a tragic ladder accident. He was so loved and will be missed by all who loved and knew him. 
   The world-famous Tartar Sauce, a.k.a. Grumpy Cat passed away from a urinary tract infection. In his seven years, his adorable frown made him the most popular cat and meme on the internet. I’m sure his imagine will continue to make people smile for years.
   The animal world also lost a huge animal rights advocate when actress Doris Day died at 97 years old. She began one of the first national animal protection organizations that led to dozens of bills, rules and policies to help remedy the worst animal abuse. Her movies were always fun to watch but the difference she made in the lives of animals will be her greatest achievement in my opinion. 
   We will miss all of these incredible lives.”

Bentley: “This next one is a whale of a fish story, so to speak. The villagers in a southern Thailand province are used to seeing giant catfish. It was when they noticed one in distress that they came together to help save a local legend.
   The 26-year-old giant Mekong catfish is lovingly known by the villagers as the swamp king. The 440 lb. fish had gotten stuck in a tiny pond after heavy rains flooded the area. It took six hours to pull, hoist and transport the big fish but we are happy to report the swamp king is swimming free once again. Sometimes it really does take a village.”
Pierre: “There is a bill in the Louisiana House that would require anyone found guilty of animal abuse to register as an animal abuser within seven days of their conviction. The law would prohibit them from owning an animal for ten years. If they are found guilty a second time, they would be prohibited from owning an animal for life. Personally, I’d like to think that’s because they would be in jail for life! The law is a step in the right direction, and we hope it is passed.
Bentley: “Most of you know that we are affiliates for Treatibles Full Spectrum Hemp products. The difference that the soft chews or oil make in me during thunderstorms is amazing. I just wanted to share this recent incident with you.
   We had some scary bad weather the other day and Mom gave me some Treatibles oil about thirty minutes before the storm hit. Without Treatibles, I pant, pace, try to climb up on the furniture or hide under things. I know that some of you are reading this and nodding your heads. It made my people sad to see me so upset but now, I actually get in my bed and sleep during storms. They keep saying stuff like, “It’s a miracle!” 
   We are going to share our review of the Treatibles Ready Pack oil next week, but you can order yours today and use our discount code to save 10%. Don’t forget the 4th of July will be here with all the noise before we know it! Your best friend does not have to suffer through the holidays. Treatibles bring Harmony for the Whole Family®.
Paisley the Weather Lab: “I am going to be sharing my experience with Treatibles in that same upcoming review. Y’all don’t want to miss it. Even my humans could not believe the difference! Until then Bentley, you might want to keep yours close because there is some storms heading our way again.
   There isn’t much difference in the weather this week. It is going to be wet, wet, wet from sea to shining sea! If it is not raining at your house, it will either be cold and damp up north or hot and muggy down south. Don’t despair though, I think Memorial Day weekend will be looking much better.
   Please stay tuned to your local weather stations. The weather is really wacky this month and we had over 30 tornados hit the U.S. this past weekend. Always have an emergency plan that includes your pets.
Bentley: “We want to give a shout-out to all the humans that are graduating from high school and college. Congratulations!
   We have two fabulous reviews coming this week. On Wednesday, our review will include a fabulous giveaway! Don’t forget that our 300th Pet Parade Blog Hop and giveaway is still in full swing. Stop by our post, Dash Kitten and Bionic Basil for your entries!
   We are including a badge to celebrate Memorial Day next Monday. Feel free to use and share it as we remember those who gave all for our freedom.
   Have a super day and be sure to grab yourself some happy.”

Beary Tasty Treats for Dogs

   Bentley is 100% motivated by food. If you expect him to cooperate, there had better be something in it for his tummy. Being a senior, it is important for him to maintain a healthy weight so we’re particular about the treats we give him. That's why I was so excited to discover Charlee Bear Meaty Bites. They are the perfect size for a treat or I can break them in half for training sessions.
*We are being compensated for sharing Charlee Bear® Meaty Bites dog treats. Barking from the Bayou only shares products that we use and believe our readers will benefit from knowing about. Charlee Bear is not responsible for the contents of this article. All opinions are my own.
Charlee Bear Grain Free Meaty Bites Chicken & Blueberries
Charlee Bear Grain Free Meaty Bites are 100% grain free and made in the USA. The Chicken & Blueberries are made with select cuts of raw chicken then, they're infused with blueberries that you can see! These meaty bites are freeze dried for the maximum nutritional value.
Charlee Bear Grain Free Meaty Bites Beef Liver & Sweet Potatoes
Charlee Bear Grain Free Meaty Bites Beef Liver & Sweet Potatoes begin with USA raised raw beef then, for a taste sensation, they add sweet potatoes before freeze drying. This unique and incredibly healthy treat will be a favorite at your house!
Basset snigging a bag of Charlee Bear treats
Bentley: “I like to give all my treats the sniff test. MMM…I can smell fresh blueberries! You do know that blueberries and sweet potatoes are both super foods, right? That makes these treats super too! 
   Charlee Bear is a family owned company and has been making quality treats for over 25 years. A little rescue dog named Charlee was the inspiration for their name. Yes, you guessed it. The little guy was a heart stealer and looked like a teddy bear! It is their mission to make simple, nourishing and natural treats that dogs love.”
Basset Hound sitting up and eating a treat
“Okay, here’s the deal. The smell test is important but it’s the taste test that makes or breaks a treat for me. Wow! Excuse the stream of drool but y’all simply have to try a Charlee Bear’s Meaty Bites to appreciate how delectable each bite tastes. Crunchy yet light with just the perfect amount of blueberry in each one. Did I mention they are only 5 tiny calories a piece?”

“Let me shoot you straight on Meaty Bites from Charlee Bear. I love them. Both flavors are scrumptious. You can trust my taste buds because I have eleven and a half years of treat expertise under my collar. Treats are life. Mom carries them on our walks to divert my attention from other dogs. Something about me being too macho for my own good. Anyway, she just whips one out of her bag and everything around me disappears except for that yummy Charlee Bear treat. We will be ordering more on *Amazon so I can have them delivered to my front door practically overnight! It’s like it says on the bag, they are Beary Tasty Treats™.”
   You can follow Charlee Bear on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for lots of fun photos, videos, and new products.

BFTB NETWoof News May 13, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to this week’s BFTB NETWoof News. We hope that you had a wonderful weekend. Let’s check with Pierre for our top story.”
Pierre Westie: “Our top story is that our news researcher (mom) spent the weekend enjoying herself and spending time watching her great nephew play college baseball. They visited with family in town for the weekend and she failed miserably to find our news stories. Bentley and I checked out some local pee mail but found no good news there. We are cutting Mom some slack because of Mother’s Day but won’t hesitate to write her up if it happens again. Just sayin’.”

Last Minute Gift Ideas for Pet Moms

   Mother’s Day in the United States is Sunday, May 12. That means you still have time to buy the dog or cat mom in your life the purr-fect Mothers’ Day gift. There is no more convenient way to shop than with Amazon. We buy everything for our home from cookware to bike parts on Amazon. I honestly can’t remember the last time I actually shopped for a gift in a store. It is just so easy and with PRIME, the free shipping makes it a no-brainer.
I am an Amazon Influencer and added a new Idea Board for Mother’s Day. If you make a purchase through my Amazon page, I will receive a small commission at not additional charge to you.
Here are just a few of the ideas I have gathered for Mother’s Day. Be sure to visit my page for more cool gifts.
Isn’t this necklace the cat’s meow for your cat mom?

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News. We have some great reports for you so let’s throw it over to Pierre for our top story.”
Pierre Westie: “Thanks, Bentley and hi everyone! We have to start off with the Kentucky Derby Debacle. For the first time in the race’s 145-year history, the horse that crossed the finish line first was disqualified for interference. 
   Maximum Security was a favorite to win the first leg of the Triple Crown race on a sloppy track, but it was a 65-1 longshot named Country House that was declared the winner after a twenty-minute review delay. There were a lot of disappointed fans but some very lucky ticket holders that won $132.40 on a $2.00 bet!”

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

   Confession time…I LOVE sports, not playing but watching them. You need to understand when I say sports, I am talking about the southern holy trinity of sports: baseball, football and basketball. The problem that I’ve always had is where we lived until last year had zero professional ball teams. That left us cheering for LSU, New Orleans Saints, and the high school where I used to work. I'll always love LSU and the Saints but they were several hours away from our house.
   Fast forward to our new home where we can root for the Houston Astros, Houston Texans, and the Houston Rockets!! I am in sports fan heaven. 
   Last Friday we went to watch the Astros play the Cleveland Indians at Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston. I was so excited to attend my first Astros game! They even gave me a certificate to commemorate the day. Come with me as I take you out to the ballgame.

BFTB NETWoof News April 29, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to this week’s BFTB NETWoof News. We have some fun stories to share but I’m afraid our top story is something quite disturbing. It is something that we all need to be aware of with the hope that we might make a difference. Let’s check in with Pierre for more information.”
BFTB NETWoof News with two dogs anchoring
Pierre Westie: “We have a number of friends and readers in Australia who have made us aware of their federal government “war” on feral cats. Over the years, we have seen articles about the huge population of feral cats in the country being blamed for some small native animals being brought close to extinction. This is a cat’s survival instinct just like any other wild animal.

National Kids & Pets Day 2019

   Today is National Kids and Pets Day! If you have one, I hope you have the other. There is increasing evidence that household pets might have a major influence on child development as well as a positive impact on children’s social skills and emotional well-being.
The important thing to remember is that your child must be taught how to treat a pet. It doesn’t matter if it is a dog, cat, hamster, bird, or fish, you must lead by example and actually show your child how to treat the pet. Here are a few tips to help.

Sunday at the Houston Zoo

We recently spent a Sunday morning at the Houston Zoo. I have mixed emotions about zoos but the one in Houston is what every zoo should strive to become. The animals are in beautiful habitats with plenty of room to roam. There are 6,000 animals being fed, given top-notch medical care, and housed in a safe environment. They all appeared healthy and content. It was wonderful watching our granddaughters see the enormous animals in real life!
The flamingo enclosure was gorgeous!

BFTB NETWoof News April 22, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News. We hope that you had a wonderful Easter weekend and found lots of eggs. The Bunny made his way through here and escaped without waking us up. How does he do it?? Anyway, let’s turn to Pierre for our top story.”

Pierre Westie: “Let me begin by saying thank you for all of the sweet birthday wishes. I had a grand day with presents including a spikey ball and a peanut butter-flavored Benebone. My Uncle A was here to celebrate so there were extra belly rubs and he threw my new spikey ball a gazillion times. It seems that being eight truly is great!
   For our top story, we want to give a shout-out to the state of Ohio. They have named shelter pets as the state’s official state pet. This recognition will encourage people to adopt pets when looking to add a new family member. That is very important to all the dogs and cats waiting for their forever homes. Way to be awesome, Ohio!”

Happy 8th Birthday Pierre

   It is hard to believe but our little man is turning eight years old today! Pierre is the happiest dog we’ve ever had, and we have had some incredibly happy dogs. He doesn’t have a mean bone in his body and loves to play. His attitude is to have fun, live in the moment, and always smile. Maybe that is why he’s so happy!

BFTB NETWoof News April 15, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for the week of April 15, 2019. We have a rather unusual newscast today because other than our top story, we only have local news. By local I mean it is what is going on around here on the Bayou. First let’s get to the top story and for that we toss it over to Pierre.” 

Pierre Westie: “As you know we always pride ourselves in bringing stories to make you smile but this week, we have to share some sad news. Our beloved friend, Hazel, the matriarch of Idaho Pug Ranch passed over the Rainbow Bridge. If you’d like to leave your thoughts for her family, please visit their blog. She will be forever loved and missed.”

Pierre the Flirt

   I have to tell y’all what Pierre did the other day. First of all, I have mentioned that he has a crush on the female yellow Lab that lives behind us. They have only met through the fence. I don’t know her parents, so the two are left exchanging sweet nothings through the pickets. 
*A little sidebar…Bentley does not like her and thinks she deserves his harshest barking. 
   Okay, now that I have given you the background story let me tell you what our little Romeo did to impress his Juliet. 
Basset Hound and Westie
   We were sitting on the patio relaxing while Skipper grilled us some chicken on Monday. The boys were sniffing around in hopes that Dad would drop a piece of meat or that some kids would ride bikes by so they could run and bark. After no action for a few minutes Bentley was making his way back to the porch. All of the sudden Pierre comes racing up to him and begins a wrestling match! Bentley didn’t really want to wrestle but they did their usual snappy jumpy roughhousing. It didn’t last a minute, but it is what happened afterwards that had us laughing.

What Do the Bayou Boys Do on Their Days Off?

You are probably wondering what the Bayou Boys are doing with their extra days off during the week. I thought it’d be best to show you in pictures. 
We did some grillin’ and chillin’ Monday. It was a gorgeous day with a nice breeze. The boys love spending time on the patio under the ceiling fan.

Ears to Dr. Harvey's

   Into most dog’s life, a bit of ear trouble must fall. Basset Hounds are notorious for having ear infections. Bentley suffered with them for the first 8 years of his life until I discovered a DIY formula that put an end to his chronic ear infections. This formula is great for his inner ears but does not do anything to keep his long ears free of dirt and ear wax. For that job, I fetch my bottle of Dr. Harvey’s Herbal Ear Wash.
Dr. Harvey's Herbal Ear Wash
   Dr.Harvey’s Herbal Ear Wash is a wonderful alternative to chemical ear washes. It is made in the USA and is anti-fungal, antibacterial, and antiviral.
Basset smelling Herbal Ear Wash
   Like most dogs, Bentley watches every move I make. He knows when it is ear cleaning time so when I apply the liquid to the cotton pad, he walks over for his ear wash! Remember, NEVER insert a swab or cotton pad into your dog’s ear canal.

World Party Day

   April 3rd is World Party Day! This holiday was created way back in 1996 with the concept that humans (and animals) have the right to joy and peace. It is meant to support positivity and fun with a worldwide day of partying.
   Such a holiday is at the very heart of what the Bayou Boys believe to be their purpose in life. We are going to look back at a few epic parties to prepare for today.

Bentley: “This is a pic from my 11th birthday. As you can tell, we really enjoy a party! There is always reason for cake, am I right?!?”

Pierre Westie: “The Bayou Boys have been in touch with NASA after Bentley was spotted on radar in his private rocket. The scientists were so impressed with the craftmanship of the Hound Dog #7 Rocket Pack, they are planning on a mission to the moon in early 2020. Stay tuned for updates.”

Changes on the Bayou

    Hello everyone! I wanted to let you know about some changes that are taking place on Barking from the Bayou and the reasons for these changes. Don’t worry, we aren’t going away but we are adjusting our schedule. 
Barking from the Bayou will now publish each
Monday * Wednesday * Friday
   This isn’t a decision that I made lightly. It means a lot to me that so many of you visit each day. I hope that you will continue to follow our adventures three times a week! 
   There are many reasons for me cutting back on blogging, but these are the main factors:

Pierre Westie: “Most people think of a dog or cat when they imagine a child’s best friend. That is not the case with this incredible cute duo of an 8-year-old girl and her duck. We actually reported on this unlikely friendship back in 2016 when the bond was just beginning. 
   Snowflake and her human, Kylie, go everywhere they can together including the park and sleepovers. In case you’re wondering, Snowflake wears a diaper in the house. She has signed him up to be a therapy duck and we are sure they will quack up the sick patients!”

Step Into The Shaggy Dog Parlor

Westie in the bathtub with shampoo on his fur
I give Pierre his baths, but he MUST be groomed routinely.
    One of the most frustrating and difficult things about having a Westie or any dog than needs to be professionally groomed is finding an excellent groomer. They're more elusive than a unicorn so if you find one, treasure them. They are few and far between.
   Pierre has been to countless grooming salons in his lifetime. This month marks the one-year anniversary of our big move to Texas. We love living here and have found the boys a vet that we really like but a groomer for Pierre has eluded us. I have written about the other places we have tried, and they were all good. It’s just that none of them felt like the right fit for us. As a pet parent, it’s important to know your dog is in good hands and being treated with love. Are they stressed when you pick them up? Did you observe how employees interacted with other dogs? Were their prices in line with other salons in your area? These are all things we take into consideration when we trust someone with our baby. Those are also the reasons that we have continued to search for the perfect place.

The Day After

The Bayou Boys are ready for it to be all about them again! 

   Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! The outpouring of love was overwhelming and made turning 60 very special. 
   I had a wonderful day and my husband spoiled me by taking me shopping for a new purse and perfume. Those are two of my favorite things! My son and his family treated me a wonderful dinner.

Doing 60 on the Bayou

Pierre: “Today is our Mom’s birthday and for the past few years, Bentley has interviewed her about growing up and getting older. Some of his questions seemed kinda harsh so I thought it’d be a good idea to join him this year. At her advanced age it might not be a good idea to get her all riled up.”
Bentley: “I am never harsh with her. She knows a good journalist has to dig in order to separate fact from fiction. Our readers want to know if she actually rode a dinosaur to school or if she trudged 5 miles one way in the deep, deep snow. Heck, I want to know!”

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome once again to BFTB NETWoof News. I hope nobody is feeling green from too much celebrating on St. Patrick’s Day! We have fetched some feel-good stories to ease you into the new week. Pierre, what’s our top story?”
Pierre Westie: “It was a tough choice because all of this week’s stories are awesome. We decided to lead in with the most bizarre and we think you’ll agree it is definitely tops.
   The town of Fair Haven, Vermont has a new mayor and she is the GOAT. I’m not talking about the Great Of All Time…nope, this 2-year-old Nubian goat named Lincoln is the town’s new pet mayor! The idea started as a fundraiser for a new playground. Residents could enter their pets as candidates for mayor in the town meeting day ballot for $5. Lincoln will make appearances in the local parades and festivals.”

Let's Talk Treatibles

   One of the biggest new trends in pet care is the use of phytocannabinoid infused products. It is easy to get overwhelmed with the onslaught of products that all claim to help your pet. Let me help you wade through the confusion surrounding the use of full spectrum hemp oil for companion animals. I'll also tell you why I trust Treatibles® Full Spectrum Hemp Oil and Chews for the Bayou Boys.

What is Phytocannabinoid?
   Phytocannabinoids are naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the cannabis and hemp plant. All animals have an endocannabinoid system that helps maintain the physiological neurological and immunological systems in their body. When there’s a deficiency in the body, receptors will use the phytocannabinoids to help create balance as well as provide support for relaxing, repairing or restoring.

The Bayou Boys' Bond

   I was thinking about how lucky we are that Bentley and Pierre get along so well. They are both so different but make the perfect duo. Who would have thought a lovable Basset Hound and a feisty Westie would become inseparable? I know that isn't always the case with dogs. One of the things I am most thankful for is the tight bond the boys have formed. Let me explain further. 
The Bayou Boys’ Bond
They are best friends.

Waiting For the Walk

   The Bayou Boys love to go on their walks. We never say the word “w-a-l-k” in front of them or they begin their “We are going on a walk” dance. This dance makes preparing to leave the house a challenge. 
Bentley: “I wouldn’t hound you so much, but you are sooooo slow! All we need is our harness and leash. Why do you insist on packing a bag?”

A Conversation with a Basset Hound

   Bentley and I were discussing the Basset Hound breed the other day. I thought he’d enjoy learning about his heritage as I brushed the usual ton of hair off him.
     Here’s your chance to be the “fly on our wall.”
Me: “Did you know that your sense of smell is second only to the Bloodhound? I guess that is why you are so busy sniffing everything on our walks.”
Bentley: “That is true and why you should never let me go out without a leash. I’ll be the first to admit that when I pick up a scent, it’s total tunnel vision until I discover the source or the scent fades. That could be a long way and then I’d be totally lost. Of course, you’d be ugly crying. It’d be a bad scene.”

Pierre Westie: “Thanks! Our top story is going to give you all the feels. 
   A man drove his diesel from California to New York a total of 2,800 miles one way to rescue a pit bull that was scheduled for euthanasia. He had been making a routine delivery in California when his wife sent him the link to a dog that looked like their dog, King, that they’d recently lost to cancer. Mario felt an kinship with the dog. He said, “I couldn’t save King, but I can save a couple in his honor.” That’s when he asked his boss to find him a delivery in New York and he called the shelter and told them he was on his way and begged them not to put the dog down.

Spring Forward 4 Flowers

Tulips in Washington
This weekend most of the United States will set their clocks forward one hour. Daylight savings time officially begins Sunday, March 10, 2019 at 2:00 AM. That gives us more daylight in the evenings and less in the morning.
