BFTB NETWoof News August 29, 2016

Bentley: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for the last Monday in August 2016. As many of you know, we were on a secret assignment last week. Details will be coming soon but that did not deter us from fetching some great stories. My co-anchor Pierre has our top story.”
BFTB NETWoof News Top Story with black bear
Pierre: “Yes, I do and I can ‘bearly’ contain my excitement at being back. Our top story is the 300 lb. black bear that was relocated after authorities evicted him from his place of residence. This might not have been unusual except the bear was living under a man’s front porch in Breckenridge, Colorado. This modern-day Yogi was tranquilized and moved to another part of the state. Hopefully, his new address will be in the forest.”

Bentley: “Authorities estimate that the bear is 10 years old so I’m sure it will live a long and happy life among the other approximately 19,000 black bears in the Colorado wilderness. It can be scary out there in the wild. There is a lot to be said for self-preservation like in this next story. A man in British Columbia was out whale watching with his family when they spotted a pod of orcas. The giants of the ocean were trying to make a meal out of a seal when it decided to seek refuge on the family’s boat. The seal jumped on the back and wedged itself between the engines where the whale could not reach it. I give this report my seal of approval.”
BFTB NETWoof Sports featuring Mabel the Pug ♥

Pierre: “I approve of jumping into this week’s BFTB Sports. You may remember earlier this summer when the adorable Mabel from Idaho Pug Ranch earned her first Rally score and was looking forward to doing more. Well, that is exactly what she did this past weekend. She and her mom earned first place and a Rally Novice Title! They weren’t content to rest on their laurels though; they also competed in Beginner Novice Obedience. We are proud as punch to say that they placed 2nd with their first qualifying score of 191 points out of 200! Congratulations, Mable. You can see more photos from the day on her blog.”
BFTB NETWoof Weather with Paisley the Weather Lab
Paisley: “I am so happy for Mable and her mom. They will be glad to know their week looks bright weather-wise too. Most of the northern states and center of the USA will be warm and sunny. Showers will arrive in the Pacific Northwest but the west coast can expect nice weather. Our southern states will continue a pattern of muggy days with scattered storms. Friends along the east coast will be experiencing plenty of sun shine and hot temperatures. As always, keep an eye to the sky and an ear to your local weather reports in the event of yucky weather. I hope that you have a sunny outlook no matter what the weather is where you live. Back to you, Bentley.”
Bentley: “Did you know that there are places in America where they get little or no thunder? Why am I just now finding this out? Does it thunder where you live? Let us know in the comment section below. We appreciate you stopping by for this week’s weather and hope that you join us all week for more fun.

  1. Oh it thunders here for sure... And The Liver Killers are not happy about that!

  2. We've had some nasty thunderstorms this summer. I don't mind at all, but Bailie can get scared. Congrats to Mabel! Any title in anything having to do with obedience is a major accomplishment in my stubborn hound mind! Have a good week, boys!

  3. We get tons of thunder in our area, but fortunately it doesn't bother Ruby too much.

    Love the story about the bear and the seal. Can't imagine realizing that you have a bear sleeping under your front porch.

  4. We never got the thunderstorm they were calling for. Lady would make a spot if she saw a bear in our yard.

  5. YAY for Mabel!!! ...a bear under my crib would be hard to bear... what was it what attracted Yogi to live under a porch?

  6. We have thunder here but it doesn't bother us. Sometimes we bark at it but aren't scared. Congrats to Mabel for her great score.

  7. thanks for the news updates - I am sure their will be a lot of thunder around this coming week

  8. WE usually have some pretty good thunderstorms in July and August but not this year. If fact we have only had a few sprinkies of rain in the last several weeks. We had a bunny living under our porch one year but never a bear!! Yikes!
    Thanks so much for sharing my great weekend news - Mom is so proud of me!
    Bailey & Hazel too!

  9. Wow...way to go Mable! Congrats. And congrats to the relocated bear. Too often bears get euthanized when their presence collides with us peeps. Paws crossed he doesn't migrate back to the porch!

  10. Great news! I don't know if I would like smokey the bear living under the porch
    Lily & Edward

  11. We get one or two thunderstorms a year, but we would like many more.

  12. Wow, what a week. Bears, Seals and my favorite Idaho Pug!

  13. We are so happy that you covered Mabel's story! We wonder if that bear is gonna show up at Shyla's place??

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  14. OMD, that bear is too funny!!! He was probably waitin' for the BBQ to be stoked up, so he could gets some grub!! Next time dude....
    WoooHoooo Mabel!!! That gurl's got more talent than I do in my little talon! Wonder what she's gonna do next????
    Nope, doesn't thunder here too much...sometimes in the spring, butts it doesn't even rain in the summer here!
    Ruby ♥

  15. Places with no Thunder? Say it isn't so! We have Thunder here all of the time. :)

  16. Wow, we did not know that about thunder. I bet there are a lot of dogs who would like to live in those places (mine included)! We've actually had a pretty quiet summer as far as that goes, and we'll be hoping the fall will be just as quiet too (can't believe August is almost over!). We can get some nasty storms here right through September, so all paws are crossed.
