BFTB NETWoof News July 2, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for the first week of July 2018. Can you believe that we are already halfway through the year? It has certainly flown by for us. Let’s get straight to our top story with my co-anchor, Pierre.”

Pierre Westie: “As you mentioned, it’s July and that means it is time to remind everyone that leaving your pet in the car could be the death of them. Seriously, I hate to be so harsh, but it is the absolute truth. When it is 95°F outside, it only takes 10 minutes for temperatures to rise inside a car to 114° and in 30 minutes the temp can reach 129°. That kind of heat is deadly to a dog or cat. We do hate when you leave us at home, but the risk is not worth the ride and we forgive you the instant you come back!”

  Bentley: “Were you among the throngs of people watching and cheering for a 7-week-old deaf puppy that had fallen into a 50-foot crevice behind an Alabama home. It took 30 hours and help from firefighters, cave rescue crews, plumbers and countless volunteers to bring the white pup back to the surface. Huntsville tv stations had thousands of concerned pet lovers tuned into their live stream of the rescue.”

Pierre: “We are pleased to report that PETA has brought change to the stock photo industry. Five major photo agencies have agreed to quit accepting or offering images of animals outside of their natural habitat and zoos. That means no chimps wearing suits and ties or playing the trumpet will be bought or sold and any current photos will be removed from their sites. Hopefully, this will eliminate animals that are being abused in an effort to get a humorous or souvenir photograph.”

Bentley: “This is the week that most pets go missing in America. It has nothing to do with them not being happy at home. Fireworks can be terrifying for our dogs and cats, so it is important that they are kept indoors and out of harm’s way. Our neighborhood is a “No Fireworks” zone and we are hoping that everyone obeys the rules.
   We also want to remember the wildlife who must find it incredibly scary to see the skies light up and hear things exploding all around them. Pyrotechnics have been a part of Independence Day for years and we aren’t trying to prevent anyone from enjoying themselves. We are just asking that you leave the fireworks to the professionals. It is safer for everyone. Please remember our veterans that suffer from PTSD. This holiday is hell for them too.”

Pierre: “We want to give a shout out to our very good friend Madison from My GBGV Life. She recently earned her Barn Hunt Open Title at the Bales and Tales Summer Solstice Barn Hunt Trial. That is quite an accomplishment for such a young dog and she shows no signs of resting on her laurels. Her official name is now Ethos Intel Inside CGC TD RATO. Pretty fancy, huh? Congratulations to Madison and her mom!”
BFTB NETWoof Weather with Paisley the Weather Lab
Paisley the Weather Lab: “Those were some cool stories, guys! Unfortunately, that might be the only thing cool around here this week! It is going to be H-O-T hot! The temperatures will be rising from coast-to-coast with some places reaching triple digits. There will be an occasional thunder buster across our southern and northern states, but those storms will do little to cool things off.
   As always, tune to your local stations for weather updates and warnings. Stay hydrated in this heatwave and make certain your pets have plenty of fresh drinking water.”
Bentley: “That does it for this week’s BFTB NETWoof News. We appreciate you stopping by and invite you back each day this week as we have more fun.
   We have some reviews, some laughs, and some great ideas to share with y’all. Have a fun-tastic Fourth of July if you are in the U.S.A. and a happy belated Canada Day to our friends way up north!
   Stay safe, love one another, and be sure to grab yourself some happy.”

  1. We saw the 7-week old pup on fb and we were so happy for her! Bless her rescuers!
    Congratulations to Madison!

  2. Madison is super proud to be in your news today :) As for summer, we can't wait for it to be over. We've had more than enough heat already - no fun! Have a wonderful 4th of July week!

  3. We hope everyone stays cool and out of cars!

  4. Yay for your neighborhood no fireworks!! What a wonderful idea.
    I will never understand fireworks mentality.
    Hugs madi and mom

  5. It is incredibly hot here, and no furry belongs in a car for any amount of time alone. Heck we don't even want to be outside, never mind in a scorchingly hot car.

    We saw that story about the little pup rescued from the well. Thank dogness for good peeps that care.

  6. Fireworks are a waste of money and scary for some dogs and some veterans.

  7. I wish we were in a no fireworks zone. They are illegal in my state, but no one enforces it and everyone around us sets them off.

  8. OMD, I hopes you guys stay cool!!! It was a hot weekend, butts NOTHING like the peeps out east are goin' through! Yuck! I hopes peeps cool it with the fireworks! It's gotten better around here, butts nobody respects the no fireworks law! I don't mind them, butts there are so many puppers and kittehs and burdies and peeps that can't take the booms, and my heart breaks for them. paws crossed that it is more quiet this year!

  9. Stay safe from the fireworks, boys! And try to stay cool also.

  10. Thanks for another great news report! Even though my ghostwriter loves to see fireworks, she and Dad stay home with me. We turn the TV up so I don't get scared by the booms and crackles of the town fireworks show. Hope you have a good and not scary 4th of July day tomorrow!

  11. It has been crazy hot here, something we are not used to! We can barely stay cool at home and couldn't imagine leaving anyone in a hot car. Heck, I worry about our chickens being in the chicken coop when it's like this! (don't worry, they have a fan and windows, and we make sure they are not stuck in there any more than they need to be!).
