BFTB NETWoof News May 29 2017

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News. This Memorial Day we would like to start the newscast by giving our heartfelt thanks to all of the men, women, and dogs who have sacrificed so much to defend our freedom. They are all our heroes.
   Pierre, what is today’s top story?”

Pierre Westie: “This report is right up my alley since the family depends on me to alert them to predators in our yard. Just yesterday I let them know there was a snake in our backyard.
   While a snake is pretty scary, it pales in comparison to what a dog in Florida discovered on his porch. After listening to non-stop barking, a man went to see why his dog was causing all of the commotion. Imagine his shock when he saw a Florida Panther (cougar) sitting on his porch. He grabbed his camera and took some photos of the big cat. The animal lounged around for about 20 minutes before disappearing. The Cougar was named Florida’s state animal in 1982 but it is rare to see them…especially in your own yard!”

Bentley: “I don’t want to see any wild animals in our yard except squirrels. We often hear coyotes in the woods behind us and that is creepy enough for me.
    Speaking of you finding a snake, a dog in India was barking and pacing around a deep well. It drew the attention of a man nearby who went to see what had upset the mama dog. Looking into the well, he immediately saw the problem. Her two puppies had fallen into the well and they weren’t alone. A large python was also down there but seemed to be protecting the shivering pups. After spending over 48 hours in the deep hole alongside the deadly snake, the puppies were returned safely to their mom. Nobody knows why the snake didn’t harm the little ones but we are so happy that it didn’t.”

Pierre: “Dogs are on a roll when it comes to rescuing others. Another dog found an injured cat and barked until it got the attention of some nearby people. The cat was terrified of the dog but couldn’t move due to its injuries. It finally mustered up enough strength to crawl under a car. The dog was not going to be deterred and continued to bark. When the owner of the car came to move it, the cat was rescued and taken to the vet. We are happy to say that it is going to be okay thanks to one very determined dog.”

Bentley: “Cats can be heroes too as we have seen in the past and when heroism is combined with a mother’s love, well, you get this story. A stray cat in New Zealand had given birth to a litter and they all seemed to be at risk of succumbing to the elements.
   Thankfully, a rescue was able to take the kittens to their shelter to be taken care of until they are available for adoption. Little did they know the mother was not going to accept her babies being taken away so easily. The morning after the kittens’ rescue, the mama cat was at the shelter demanding to be reunited with her little ones. The rescue workers brought the mother in and she quickly relaxed as she nursed her sweet babies. They are all now safe and off the streets.”
BFTB NETWoof News remembers our friend, Lady Bug
Pierre: “We lost a good friend on May 17th and we would like to remember her today. LadyBug was a beautiful Bichon Frise who lived with her sister Chloe and her parents. She was one of the stars of the blog, Bichonpawz and took us on many awesome adventures. We always enjoyed her sweet smile and outgoing personality. She will definitely be missed by her family and all of Blogville. #LadyBugForever
   Let’s see what Paisley has in store for this week’s weather.”
BFTB NETWoof Weather forecast
Paisley the Weather Lab: “It is so hot here in the Pacific Northwest that we have actually been sweating! I’m happy to say that we are expecting cooler temps tomorrow. This means we will be having some scattered showers that will move across the entire northern states. Actually, a lot of the country will have rainfall this week including the east coast. Bentley won’t be happy to know that the South is going to have more thunderstorms too. Checking in on the southwestern states, they will really be sweating as temperatures soar into the triple digits! The western and plain states should have nice sunny weather.
   If you are in the areas that have storms predicted, please stay tuned to your local weather stations for updates and warnings.”
Bentley: “We appreciate you joining us this week and invite you to stop by each day for some fun and information. It’d be awesome if you could share BFTB NETWoof News with your friends on social media by clicking the little buttons at the bottom of our post or on our sidebar.
   Have a wonderful week and be sure to grab yourself some happy.”
