BFTB NETWoof News 1-25-2016 #dognews

Bentley: “Welcome to BFTB NETWoof News. I hope that our friends in the northeast were able to snuggle up and stay warm. We will check with Paisley our Weather Lab a little later. As always, my co-anchor Pierre has the top story.
BFTB NETWoof News set with dog and home fire as top story
Pierre: “Our top story is another example of dogs being awesome. Two dogs in Colorado are credited for saving their family from a fire that destroyed their home. The family of three and the dogs were able to escape without injury.”
Bentley: “Those two deserve a medal and some treats for being heroes. Our second story is another rescue but with the roles switched. The two dogs in this report were rescued from a drain. The owners had been searching for them for several hours. Neighbors had called Animal Services to report hearing dogs barking from the ditch. When they arrived, they were able to go into the ditch and lift the two dogs to safe ground. Luckily, the dogs were microchipped and returned to their people.”

Pierre: “We like this report even though it isn’t a dog story. The Aquila Private Game reserve has a new baby. A baby rhino that was abandoned by its mother has found a surrogate in one of the Rangers. He feeds and keeps little ‘Orion’ close by him during these first crucial weeks. One of its favorite activities is having the surrogate read him bedtime stories.”

Bentley: “That is definitely awww-inspiring and you never outgrow loving bedtime stories. Our last story is a victory that has been many years overdue. Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus are retiring their elephant act. As we have learned more about elephants and their strong family connections, it was considered cruel. The elephant will live out their lives on an elephant reserve. They deserve to be under big open skies, not the closed Big Top.”
Paisley: “Is it time for the weather? I have so much to report!”
Pierre: “Yes, let’s take a look at this week’s forecast. Will the northeast be able to dig out of all that snow?”
BFTB NETWOOF Weather forecast
Paisley: “They really did have a massive amount of snow over the weekend. Many school children and parents have an extra day off today. New York City saw an accumulation of 28.6” which makes it one of the largest snowstorms in their history. The sun will shine on the northeast this week with some temperatures rising above freezing. The north will continue to receive snow but it will be a mix of snow and rain in the northwest. California can expect sunny skies and most of the south will be nice with cooler temperatures arriving in the middle of the week. Florida and the southeast will experience some of the wet stuff this week. I’m not forgetting our friends in the center of the country. You will be feeling a nip in the air as your temperatures will be cool. That’s going to do it for the weather; back to you, Bentley.”
Bentley: “Another fine forecast from our Weather Lab. Thank you for stopping by and allowing us to fetch the news for your entertainment.
