Bentley: “Welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for the week of June 15, 2015.  I am your news hound Bentley and this is my co-anchor, Pierre.  We team up to sniff out the news that you need to know.  As always, our awesome Weather Lab Paisley has the forecast.  We always try to bring you the happiest of news, but sometimes we must share something sad.  Isn’t that right, Pierre?”
BFTB NETWoof News June 15

Pierre: “You are so right and today is one of those occasions.  As we all know, although we dogs are amazing and awesome, we still haven’t figured out how to live long enough.  It is always hard to say good-bye to a friend.  It’s with deep sadness that we must report on the untimely passing of Blogville’s Official Chef and friend to all, Sasha the lovable Shih Tzu.  Just the smell of her squirrel pizzas had all of us drooling.  Silly Sasha will be deeply missed by her Mom Anne as well as all of our Blogville community.”
Bentley: “She was one of a kind.  To shift gears to a happier subject, we can announce that the Golden Retriever Figo the service dog that jumped in front of a mini school bus to save his blind human is recovering.  The poor fellow suffered trauma, tissue damage and a slight break to his front leg.  He did well during surgery although the veterinarian bill was a lot.  It fills us with joy to announce that an anonymous donor has paid all of Figo’s vet debt.  You humans amaze me at your generosity sometimes.”
Pierre: “Now, that is good news to start off our week! We are always thankful for the kindness of strangers.  Speaking of kindness, did you know that some funeral homes are now using dogs to help mourners?  It’s true.  They are using dogs to comfort friends and families during their grief.”
Bentley: “Wow!  That would be a tough gig, but I can see where it would be helpful.  Our last news story makes me chuckle.  A new fashion trend in Japan is to cut their dog’s hair in the shape of a cube.  Of course, my hair would never be styled that way.  I’m thinking you’d make a pretty good candidate.  What do you say we give it a try…you know for the sake of fashion.”
Pierre: “Are you trying to say that I’d make a good blockhead?  I may be slightly offended.  It is not a look that I will embrace.  Don’t try to shape my hair while I’m asleep either.  You don’t fool me after all this ain’t my first rodeo.”

Bentley: “Funny that you should mention rodeo.  Blogville is having their first rodeo on July 9th.  You can get all of the information on the Mayors Murphy and Stanley’s page.  It is going to be a hoot, so pull up your boots and join us.”
Paisley: “Hey y’all!  I am going to enter the Mutton Busting with my pal Mabel.  That means that I get to be a rootin’ tootin’ cowgirl!  Yee Haw buckaroos!”
Pierre: “Oh that is a sight that I can’t miss.  How is the weather looking for this week?   Are we going to miss any showers? Teehee! I love a good segue.”
BFTB NETWoof Weather report
Paisley: “That was great, Pierre.  Hopefully, some of the storms will miss us.  The Red River is finally dropping a little and we sure don’t need any more rain.  Texas is going to get more and so are our friends from Missouri all the way to the east coast.  Denver can’t seem to catch a break either.  Even more rain and bad storms are expected there.  The bright spot is the west coast.  California is sunny with temperatures 5° to 10° higher than normal.  Y’all try to stay safe and cool this week.  Back to you, Bentley.”
Bentley: “Great job as usual, Paisley.  Thank you all for visiting today.  Don't forget to click here and enter our Luv & Emma's towel giveaway! On behalf of the BFTB News crew, have a fantastic week.  Take the time to grab yourself some happy.”
