BFTB NETWoof News April 25, 2016 #DogNews

Bentley Basset: “Hello and welcome to this week’s BFTB NETWoof News. I’m Bentley; your newshound extraordinaire in the fur. Joining me at the anchor desk are my co-anchor, Pierre and the #1 Weather Lab on the Bayou, Paisley. We have fetched some great news so let’s get right to our top story. Pierre?”

Pierre Westie: “We often report about happy reunions between humans and their long-lost dogs. I am happy to share a story that proves microchipping your cat is just as important. A cat name Chloe escaped from her car at the veterinarian’s office one morning six years ago. She was scheduled for surgery that morning but decided to opt out. Her owner was told that Chloe died in a road accident. You can imagine her surprise when she was contacted by a local shelter in South Wales to come and claim the 9-year-old cat. It was a wonderful reunion that was only possible because of her microchip.”

Bentley: “It is the one chip that all pets should have on their shoulder. I don’t think the pet in this next segment was chipped. A woman in Australia has kept her pet crocodile, Albert in her backyard for over 60 years. She received the croc when she was 5 years-old. Her dad was a croc hunter and someone ordered Albert but then reneged. The family has a special permit to keep the 13-foot crocodile.”

Pierre: “If you live around the Conroe, Texas area and lost your tiger cub, it has been found. Reports began coming into the police department about a tiger lying in some bushes. It was captured without incident wearing a collar and leash. Nobody has come forward to claim it. Although tigers can be kept legally as pets in Texas, the city on Conroe has an ordinance against harboring ‘dangerous animals’ in the city limits.”

Bentley: “Can you imagine how big of a litter box you’d need for a tiger? I’m glad that none of our neighbors have a tiger. I wouldn’t want to meet one on our walks. Before we check in on this week’s weather, we do have a sad passing to share. Maggie, the world’ oldest living dog has crossed the Rainbow Bridge at 30 years of age. This sweet Kelpie is now buried in her final resting place beneath some stately old pine trees. Run free, Maggie. How is the forecast looking, Paisley?”

Paisley: “I’m so glad that you asked. It looks as if Mother Nature simply cannot make up her mind this spring. There will be more rain in the north and scattered showers in the south this week. Our friends in Montana, Iowa and Colorado could see some more snow by midweek. The center of the country will cool down while Florida is going to be warm and humid. It will be breezy in the southwest so if you have a kite, it could be a good time to try to get some air! The west coast can look forward to some terrific weather. Back to you, Bentley.”
Bentley: “Great job, Paisley. We have another week of fun planned here on the Bayou. Have you entered our big Spring Into Health giveaway from Dr. Harvey’s? Y’all don’t want to miss this one and you can tweet daily for extra points. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. Thank you so much for dropping by today. Go out and grab yourself some happy!”

  1. Oh what a wonderful story... I'm so glad for Chloe and her owner... another surgery appointment is no topic in her house now, right? RIP Maggie, you were special and you showed the world that love can do every miracle...

  2. Why would anyone want a croc for a pet??? No thank you. Great story with that cat, how amazing! Have a great week. I'll be under my umbrella in the rain it looks like.

  3. OMD a Pet CROC??? That can only be topped by a PET Tiger... WHAT are those folks thinking?

    OMC we are so happy fur Chloe... that is grrreat... WE have microchips and are really Glad that we do.

  4. WHO keeps a crocodile as a pet?!? Are you kidding me? That thing could eat an owner in a matter of seconds. And a poor lost baby tiger...possibly a discarded pet?!? Why can't wild animals be left in the wild to live and grow in nature as they should?

  5. Chloe story is something else
    Lily & Edward

  6. Wow, we don't often think of chipping our kittie furiends, so thanks for the great story! We all love a happy ending. Gosh, tigers and gators, oh my! I thought my crabby girls were exotic, but that's a bit much. BOL
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Furiend

  7. OZ is right - wild animals should be left in the wild. Isn't that amazing that Maggie lived to be 30 years old!!!! Now she is at rest!
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  8. I wonder what kind off surgery Chloe was scheduled for to have lived 6 years without it. That is an amazing story.

  9. We're in shock. Humans keep the strangest "pets". We're trying to picture he sitting before the tv set with a croc on her lap. Gives us the shivers.

  10. We are also in awe of Chloe and her peeps being reunited after so long, YAY microchips (we all have ours here too)! Mama growled a bit when she read about the tiger of the thing she does NOT miss about Texas is this kind of stuff!!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  11. Those chip stories are SO amazing!!! We are very happy for both Chloe and her family!

  12. Pawsome news ! Having a croc as pet is a little bit weird though.... We agree with you, the weather is a little bit crazy : we got snow today ! Purrs

  13. Wow, so happy for Chloe and thank goodness for microchips! For the life of me, I can't think of one good reason to have a pet crocodile! lol

  14. Yikes...I don't think we'd want either a crocodile or a tiger as a pet! We always love the happy reunion stories, and wouldn't we all be thrilled if our dogs could live to be 30?
    We're expecting snow tonight...Paisley, is there any way you can fix that, pretty please? :)
    Jan, Wag 'n Woof Pets

  15. We agree with Oz! A CROC?!??! A ...a...TIGER??? *faint*
