BFTB Channel 7 NETWoof News 3/9/2015

Bentley: “Welcome to this week’s BFTB NETWoof News.  You can count on us to bring you all of the news that we've dug up or tracked down over the past week.  As always, I am joined at the news desk by my co-anchor Pierre and our adorable Weather Lab Paisley.  What’s our top story today, Pierre?”
Pierre: “The top story this week concerns a dog’s sense of smell.  Not to brag, but dogs have 10 times the number of small receptors as humans.  This means that we can smell something that people don’t even notice when it's held right under their noses.  Frankie, a German Shepherd has been trained to sniff out thyroid cancer in patients that have not even been diagnosed.  Okay, don’t gross out about how he performs the test.  He smells patient’s urine and if his nose detects thyroid cancer, he lies down on the floor.  If the sample is clean, he turns away.  In clinical testing, Frankie was correct 30 out of 34 times.  That’s a pretty good average.”
Bentley: “So, the next time that your dog wants to smell around the toilet, it could be for your own good.  Speaking of cancer, researchers have identified the biological mechanism that could give some cancer cells the ability to form tumors in dogs.  The study found a correlation between the increased expression of a specific gene in tumor cells and more aggressive behavior in a certain canine bone cancer.  They think it may have implications for cancer in humans.  We are keeping our paws crossed for an eventual cure and prevention of this dreaded disease.”

Pierre: "As the official newscast of Blogville, we like to keep our citizens abreast of local happenings.  The trial of Samson the Mouth ended with him turning stool pigeon on the stand.  It is considered by many Blogvillians to be the newest ‘Trial of the Century.’  You can read the entire trial including links to the interrogation, the trial transcripts, and verdict at the Police Commish Sarge's place.  We are able to report that Samson’s proverbial goose is cooked!”
Bentley: “Also on the Blogville scene, it seems that something is afoot with our honorable Mayor Stanley and a certain beautiful Dachshund named Taffy.  Rumors are flying around the streets and grooming parlors, but as of this report, nobody has been able to verify if anything unethical is occurring.  We do have the full cooperation for Co-Mayor Murphy.  We will keep our noses to the ground and our ears open for an update.”    
Paisley: “Hey y’all!  Can it be time for me?  I really want to tell everybody something important.”
Pierre: “Oh dear!  It’s not a severe weather report is it?  We will always interrupt our broadcast for an update from our Weather Lab.”
Paisley: “Well…it’s not exactly weather related.  *Dramatic sigh It’s okay, I’ll just wait.”

Bentley: “Aww, it’s okay.  It looks like things are happening with our Weather Lab.  Let’s go straight to our ace meteorodoglist Paisley.”
Paisley: “Thanks guys.  Guess what!  I started school last week and my dad said that I was a good girl.  I even get to go back this week and they let me play and learn.  It is really awesome!”
Pierre: “Congratulations!  Are you working on your PhD?”
Paisley: “Yes sir.  I will learn my Puppy Heel/Down, how to sit and be friends.  It is Puppy Kindergarten and I’m going to rock it!  I don’t think any of the other pups have a weather gig!  Speaking of which, it is finally going to be pretty outside!  Most of the country will have sunshine and temperatures reaching highs of the 60’s in the west and the 50’s in the east.  Y’all be careful of the melting snow.  There could be some rain along the south and Florida will be baking in the 80s.  That’ll do it from the Weather lab.”
Bentley: Thanks for a sunshiny outlook Paisley.  Good luck with your puppy kindergarten.  I know that you’ll make the news team proud.  We’d like to thank everyone for dropping by to get your news from us.  Have a terrific week and be sure to grab yourself some happy.”
