BFTB NETWoof News for the week of June 22, 2015

Bentley: “Greetings and welcome to another edition of BFTB NETWoof News.  My name is Bentley, your newshound extraordinaire.  I’m joined at the anchor desk by Pierre and our Weather Lab, Paisley.  We have sniffed out some important stories for you this week.”
BFTB News featuring hot car temperatures
Pierre: “That’s right, Bentley.  Our top story is one of the most important.  Yesterday wasn’t just Father’s Day, it also marked the first day of summer.  Now, we all know how much dogs enjoy going for car rides.  It is one of the highlights of our day.  What you have to remember is that we don’t like sitting in a hot car.  If you are going to be shopping or any activity that will involve leaving us in the car, do us a favor and let us stay home.”
Bentley: “I love a good road trip as much as the next dog, but I do not want to be left in the car alone.  You can see by our chart that it gets stupid hot in a matter of minutes.  I know that you might think it will be okay while you run into the store, but it is not.  If you wouldn’t sit in your car with the window cracked for five minutes, then do not leave us in there.  We love you but let us stay home in the air conditioning.”
Pierre:  “Of course, if we can accompany you on your errands, then by all means, take us.  Did you know that Friday is “Take Your Dog to Work Day”?  Our humans work at home so we are at work with them every day.  For those of you that have to say good-bye to your people each morning, this is a great opportunity to join them.  Just show them this newscast and tell them that we are pretty sure that it is the law that you go to work.  You’ll have to be on your best behavior and not pee on the boss, but it should be fun to see where they disappear to each day!”
Bentley: “This next story goes out to all of our cat friends.  For the first time ever, the Los Angeles shelters Hero Dog Award is bestowed on a cat.  Not just any cat though, this is one of the bravest cats that we’ve seen.  Her name is Tara and she fought off a chow-mix dog that attacked her 6-year-old boy, Jeremy.  He and Tara are best friends and spend most days hanging out together.  When the dog grabbed her boy’s leg and began shaking him, she chased it away.  Jeremy, who has autism, required eight stitches.  The family knows that without the brave actions of Tara, it could have been much worse.  You can see the entire scene here.
Pierre: “Wow!  That is one courageous kitty!  Con-cat-ulations Tara!”
Paisley: “Hiya boys!  Is it time for the weather?”
Pierre: “You are up next.  I just want to remind our Blogville friends that time is running out to submit your photos for the big Rodeo!  Check with Murphy and Stanley for the list of who is hosting each event.  It is going to be a boot-scootin’ good time!  Now, here is Paisley, the Weather Lab.”
BFTB Weather report
Paisley: “Thank you!  Well, it is officially summertime and that means it is officially HOT!  Californians are already battling wildfires and the heat and winds are making it difficult.  Our friends in Texas and Oklahoma are bracing for more potential flooding thanks to tropical storm Bill.  The Great Lakes area is getting hammered by the storms now.  The east coast will experience the upper 80s with storms likely.  On a bright note, all of the ice and snowstorms are gone!  As always, stay safe and enjoy your week.”
Bentley: “Great job, Paisley!  We hope that our readers have a fabulous week.  If you see somebody without a smile, give them one of yours.  Visit us each day for some awesome new products and a lot of laughs.  Be sure to grab yourself some happy today!”

  4. Mom works from home mostly too, so no need for us to go anywhere. Bailie did spend a lot of time at the other office as a youngster, learning to behave properly, and Katie and I went to work every day in Germany. The office is fun occasionally, but working from home is better.

  5. Mom won't even take us for a walk if it is about 85 - it makes her so mad around here to see people with dogs out on 90 degree days taking their dogs for a walk in the middle of the day.

  20. Luke loves to go for rides, and he's disappointed if he can't go everywhere this time of year. But we always keep him safe at home when it's too hot, unless we have two people and one can stay in the car with him!
