BFTB NETWoof News January 22, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: Hello! It is great to be back behind the anchor desk. We have been searching for some stories to put a smile on your face and I am happy to say we succeeded. Pierre, what’s our top story?”
BFTB NETWoof News January 22, 2018
Pierre Westie: “Our fierce winter weather can be dangerous not just for pets but for humans too. A Michigan woman could very well owe her life to two insistent Labradoodles. They woke their family up early wanting to go outside, even tugging on their clothes to rush them. The reason for the panic was obvious when they opened the door. An 80-year-old woman was on the freezing ground dressed only in her nightgown.
   Temperatures were around 9ยบ F so the family quickly brought her indoors and bundled her up in blankets. Thankfully, her relieved family showed up and explained they had been searching for her but couldn’t see her on the ground in the dark. Those Labradoodles are true heroes!”
BFTB NETWoof News reports on cat raising lynx cub.
Bentley: “Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. This was proven once again when an abandoned lynx was adopted by a mother house cat. She was skeptical at first but soon began the same motherly love she exhibited to her own kittens. These two are different breeds and sizes but are completely accepting of each other. Sure, the lynx will be much bigger than its ‘mom’ but don’t a lot of children outgrow their moms?”
BFTB NETWoof News reports on pet travel
Pierre: “I have seen it many times with animals and humans. Speaking of animals and humans, Delta airline is cracking down on the influx of fake ‘emotional support’ animals. The lack of regulation has led to an 84% increase in animal-related issues on flights. Problems such as biting, urination, aggression and attacks have been reported.      You’ve probably seen pics of emotional support snakes, roosters, ducks and even miniature horses on planes. It really gets me steamed because I can’t fly unless I go below and that is not happening! 
   Although the new rules are earth-shattering, they are a step in the right direction. People will have to provide a letter stating their animal can behave and is properly trained. They will also need to provide a current letter from a mental health professional along with a shot record for their pet.
   How is the weather looking for air travel this week, Paisley?”
BFTB NETWoof Weather
Paisley Weather Lab: “It won’t be as bitterly cold as it was last week. That arctic blast was crazy but I’m glad to report the south will be fair and mild. Our temperatures will be normal for this time of year in the 40 to 60’s F. 
   The southwest will also be fair but there will be scattered rain and showers along the west coast. It is still very cold in the north with snow expected. Over on the east coast, the northeast will have some scattered showers but will have some nice days too. Dry and cool weather is expected in the southeast with Florida once again feeling like Florida in the winter.
   As always, check with the meteorologist in your area for updates or warnings. Have a grrr-eat week!”

  1. yay for the two labradoodles... it is amazing to see what fabulous senses our furlegged friends have.... we had a storm warning for the weekend... and nothing happened... although the weatherguy was wrong and caused a lot of work, we are grateful that it was false alarm...

  2. We think we could be 'support animals'.....but only in First Class. Those 'doodles are heroes. Good for them.

  3. Oh well done to those Labradoodles!!!!
    Being a Princess I could expect to travel furst class to support my peeps, hehe (well, if they ever traveled furst class that is!)
    Loves and licky kisses

  4. Boy, the old woman was sure lucky to have been found. Around here someone seems to freeze to death every year...often when they have been out drinking, or sometimes the elderly with memory issues wander off and freeze. Sad situations but your story ended well.

  5. Those are great news stories! Thanks guys!

  6. We are glad that finally someone is cracking down on fake service dogs. We have seen some awful behavior from poorly trained dogs and it gives all dogs a bad reputation

  7. Congrats to the labra-duo heros! We're hoping the elderly lady fully recovers. The whole fake service/therapy dog phenomena really gets my dander up. When veterans are forced to exit restaurants with their PTSD and service dog in hand, it really cheeses me off. It's always a few that ruin it for many. *Sigh*
    Have a beautiful week!

  8. That lady was lucky that those Labradoodles found her. I'm glad Delta is finally going to crack down on emotional support animals, people have definitely been abusing the system.

  9. MOLMOLMOL bring your humans inside you surely heard mom giggle over that one
    Hugs madi your bfff

  10. Great news report and of course Paisley does a bang up job on the weather. We are not surprised the two Doods are heros!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  11. It sure seems like a stretch to think that a snake could give emotional support...ugh! People need to stop taking advantage of things. If only everyone could just follow the rules, things would be much easier for everyone.
    Love the labradoodles story...great job by them!

  12. Thank goodness for those two labradoodles!! They are heroes!

  13. Great stories. That is amazing the dogs saved the 80 yr. old woman.

  14. The best place to come for news!
    3 bum swings! 3 more!๐Ÿ’œ

    Another Pawsome report.

    Nose nudges,

  15. I heard about Delta and the service animals, people have really been taking advantage of service dogs.


I'd love to hear from you! Bark back!
