It's Flu Season for Dogs Too

The flu season is not just having an impact on humans. The canine flu is also making its rounds. Although it's not to the epidemic stage the human flu is, it is still a good idea to take precautions with our dogs.

Blessings and Updates

We are still not back to regular blogging due to our move. All of the prayers and positive thoughts we've received are very appreciated. Each has meant so much and helped more than I can ever

Isn't this every single day of the year?
Just to keep with the holiday, the Bayou Boys recommend extra belly rubs, treats and snuggles.

The Sun Rises with Dr. Harvey's Solaris

   Dr. Harvey’s is committed to helping our pets live longer healthier lives. Their newest product is aimed at boosting your dog’s immune system and contains ingredients that may be helpful in the treatment of cancer and diabetes. 
   I am adding the two formulas to Bentley and Pierre’s meals in hopes of preventing any illnesses due to the stress we are experiencing as we try to move. This will work in conjunction with their Paradigm pre-mix food to reduce their risk of developing cancers or diabetes.

I worked in a local high school for many years so every time there is a shooting at a school, it really hits home. We send our children to school to learn and expect them to come home at the end of the day. Yesterday, seventeen Florida students did not and my heart breaks for their families and their community. I don’t have any answers to the violence and craziness but still believe there is more good than bad in the world. We are sending prayers for all of those affected by this senseless violence.

Life is Better with Treatibles PCR Hemp and MCT Coconut Oil

   Let me just say this right off; moving is STRESSFUL!! It has been 25 years since our last move, so we have really gone through a ton of stuff. As of today, most everything we own is boxed up and ready for the U-Haul. Neither of the dogs have experienced so many changes in their surroundings. Pierre usually freaks out when anything is out of place, so this could have proven to be a major upheaval for him. Bentley is more chilled but can become very clingy when we are stressed out. Did I mention moving is very stressful?!?

BFTB NETWoof News February 12, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News and weather for the week of February 12, 2018. We hope that you enjoy the news including our top story. For that, let me toss it over to my co-anchor Pierre.”
Pierre Westie: “This story is very sweet and perfect for the week of love. A family discovered a woodchuck not moving in their backyard and feared the worst. They decided to pick it up with a shovel and give the poor thing a burial but when the shovel touched it, they noticed a slight movement. To get help, they called a local wildlife rehabilitator who rushed over to assist. She took the woodchuck home and began intensive care to get fluids and food in the wild animal. Over the next few weeks, the woodchuck started feeling better and became quite the snuggler with her rescuer.

Bentley: “You know we are always excited when Chewy shows up at our door. There is no telling what Mom has ordered because the folks at Chewy have a little bit of everything. Ordering is super easy and most products arrive in two days.”
Pierre: “I can’t wait to see what is in the blue box. Fetch it inside!”

What a Difference a Year Makes

Pierre Westie: “Do you remember last year when we celebrated Go Fly a Kite Day by attaching me to a huge kite?”
Bentley Basset: “It seems like only yesterday that you were soaring with the birds and squawking even louder. I’m glad that you finally relaxed and enjoyed yourself.”

Packing It Up

Bentley Basset: Oh My Dog! What is going on around here, Mom? It is like everything we own has been hidden in boxes.”
Pierre Westie: “Seriously, she has even packed up most of our toys. We can only hope that our food doesn’t disappear in a box.”
Me: “Boys, the reason that we are packing everything is because we are moving in a couple of weeks. Y’all will have a new home and yard to explore. I promise your toys, beds, supplies and most importantly, Dr. Harvey’s food is going with us. Why don’t you go play outside while I talk to our friends?

Harness a New Leash on Life

   Do you remember back in October when I shared Pierre’s new harness in the post, Step In Style with PrideBites? We had just received it and thought it was terrific. It has been several months, and I am more in love with the harness since I ordered one for Bentley.
