Catchin' Up

Hey y’all,
   Pierre and I have been discussing what kind of topics we should cover since we are only blogging one day a week. We will still have some reviews and helpful dog tips, but we thought it might be fun to have a week where we tell you what is happening in our lives.
   We finally have some cooler weather, so it’s been nice lounging out in our backyard. Mom and Dad laugh at us because I will lay in the direct sun and bake for an hour. Pierre tries so hard to do the same but he simply can’t handle the heat. He also has a hard time being still when he is outdoors.
   He has been complaining about the lack of things to chase. I am happy to report that lizards have come to visit for the first time since we moved here. Pierre runs from the fence to the garden hose to the patio searching for any sign of movement. It’s funny to watch him walk around on his hind feet trying to look on top of the bar-b-que pit. He’s had a lot of practice with lizards but don’t worry, he doesn’t kill them. There might be a couple without tails, but they will grow back. Most stay just out of his reach so he does a lot of barking, jumping and generally terrier-izing them.
   Oh yeah, we have new harnesses and they are very comfy. They are *Rabbitgoo brand we bought on Amazon. Mom wanted to get some that were a bit more secure because they are going to take us walking on their bike trail through the woods. There is a good possibility that we will see deer and lots of squirrels so it is important that we can’t slip out of our harness. 
   It is time for a trip to the vet later today for my pedicure. Pierre’s ear is bothering him again, so he has to see the V-E-T. He will be using the Purple Stuff as soon as he gets the all-clear from our doctor. We both have to get our annual heartworm test. We have to get this test every year even though Mom is diligent about giving us our Heartgard each month. The weather does not get cold enough in our area to kill mosquitos. They can be a year-round problem although they aren’t bad at our house, it only takes one bite to infect a dog. That means we aren’t taking any chances.

   We have a SPOOKATCULAR contest sponsored by our awesome friends at Dr. Harvey’s. Be sure to drop by next Wednesday to enter the fun.
   Mom has family visiting this week so she will be visiting sporadically but will get to everyone on the Pet Parade. We hope y’all join in the blog hop fun with us!
   Until next time, my friend, take good care of yourself.

BFTB NETWoof News October 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to our new BFTB NETWoof News format. We are now a monthly news post and look forward to continuing fetching the best feel-good stories from around the world. 
   One of the major changes in our programming will be with our cousin, Paisley the Weather Lab extraordinaire. It is difficult to forecast the weather a week in advance, we feel it would not be reliable to report for an entire month. Since Paisley is an important part of our team, we are moving her to a new position. I’ll let her explain later in the news report. In the meantime, let’s toss it over to Pierre for our top story.”

Pierre Westie: “This one brought a smile to my face and I’m sure it will yours too. Leon the stray kitten was just looking for a dry place after a heavy downpour when he wandered into the office of the OAB. That’s the Brazilian version of the American Bar Association (lawyers).

BFTB NETWoof News September 23, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for the week of September 23, 2019. Today is the first day of autumn but we aren’t feeling it here in Texas. Paisley will have the national forecast after the news. Let’s toss it to Pierre for our top story.”

Pierre Westie: “A couple from Washington state went on a four-day vacation to Montana and brought their 7-year-old Border Collie along. They left Katie in the hotel room while they went out to eat. When they returned, the unthinkable had happened. Their beloved dog was not in the room. Rushing to the front desk they were told she had walked out the doors about four hours earlier.

Have a Wacky Weekend!

    We appreciate all of the kind thoughts and words concerning storm Imelda. On Wednesday, we only received about a half-inch of rain. I thought we had dodged the downpour. Thursday proved me wrong! We are fine and the water wasn’t too bad in our area, but Houston was once again hit hard. Many surrounding areas received over 20” of rain in less than 24 hours. It rained really hard at our home and thundered loudly. I had started giving Bentley Treatibles last night at bedtime and then again at breakfast. He slept under his dad’s desk in their mancave during the worse part of the storm. Thank you, Treatibles! Our thoughts and prayers are with our neighbors who will be recovering from this latest storm for quite some time. #TexasStrong
