BFTB NETWoof Dog News July 11, 2016

Bentley: “It is Monday and that means another exciting BFTB NETWoof News. Fetch a cup of coffee and join us as we dig up the good stories to start your week with a smile. Later, our Weather Lab Paisley will have this week’s forecast. Let’s get started with my co-anchor Pierre and our top story.”

Pierre: “Our first story is about a black cat that has become a sort of Florence Nightingale to other animals at a shelter in Poland. Radamenes almost died from a respiratory infection but after a remarkable recovery, what he did next surprised everyone. The cat began visiting other pets in the clinic that were ill or injured. Radamenes will lick, snuggle, or just be with other cats and dogs as they heal. He has even comforted two cats at one time. Doesn’t that sound like a purr-fect nurse?”

Bentley: “He definitely sounds like a purr-fessional. The dog in this story had a chance of meeting a nurse as well as a vet after deciding to try some Gorilla Glue. (Pay attention to this, Easy) Lake is a 6-month-old Weimaraner who found a half-empty bottle of glue in the garbage. It must have tasted good because she ate most of it. This is a very, very bad idea. Let me repeat; this is a very, very bad idea. Lake became ill and was rushed into surgery. The vet removed an exact replica of her stomach in glue. This is not the first case of a dog eating a 'super' glue. Please keep all glues out of your dog's reach. We suffer from the sin of 'glue-ttoney.'
Pierre: “Speaking of sticky situations, our last report is an example of one of the few times when interfering with nature might be a good idea. Remember last week when we reported on animals dying because of human intervention? While we stand by that in most cases, if you see a baby raccoon struggling to keep its head above water, you can throw it a life vest. That is what happened on the 4th of July to a group of boaters in Maryland. Without touching the baby coon, they tossed it a lifejacket and the animal was able to climb on and hang while they towed it back to shore. You can see the cute video here.”

Bentley: “We want to remind you that if you submit a story to BFTB News and we use it, you will receive a BFTB bandana! Just email us at and share your good news. Also if you are into sports, we want your results for our pet sports report. That includes trailing, hunting, scent sports, dock diving, conformation, etc. Let us bark about you! Paisley, is the weather worth howling about this week?”
BFTB NETWoof weather with Paisley the Weather Lab
Paisley: “It is typical July weather in the United States. The northwest will be wet the first half of the week. Those storms will be scattered across the north through Friday. The center of the states will be hot with the southwest reaching triple digits. Our Plains states will be mild. Here in the south, we will be hot with scattered storms along the coast extending into Florida. If it is hot where you are, drink plenty of fluids and take frequent breaks. Should you be in the rainy area this week, stay dry and never drive in deep waters. Back to you, Bentley.”
Bentley: “Great forecast, Paisley. We want to thank everyone for stopping by today. This is going to be another fantastic week here on Barking from the Bayou. We have some great new products from Beco to show you as well as some of the cool stuff from the BlogPaws™ pet blogging/social media conference. Of course, that is just two out of our five days of fun! Sign up to have us delivered in your email or on Bloglovin’ today. Until next time, be sure to grab yourself some happy!”
