BFTB NETWoof News September 24, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for the week of September 24, 2018. Have fall temperatures arrived at your house yet? We will check in with Paisley later to see our forecast. Pierre has our top story.”

Pierre Westie: “We chose our top story to congratulate some fellow dogs on a job well done. Fourteen police dogs were honored at a retirement ceremony in Bogata, Columbia last week. The team of specially trained K-9s completed years of service that involved sniffing out drugs, bombs, and bodies.
   The retirees were a diverse group that included German Shepherds, Pit Bulls, and Golden Retrievers. They were treated to special scented baths before their party in the Chief Prosecutor’s Office. These brave heroes will be up for adoption and placed with families that will allow them to live out their lives in the way all dogs deserve. Some could be adopted by their former handlers.
   We thank them for their service.”
Bentley: “This next story proves that dogs should be allowed to dig while out on a walk. A dog was walking with its owner near the Orlickè Mountains in northern Bohemia. That is in the Czech Republic. The dog dug up a 3,000-year-old collection of bronze artifacts! The owner turned the 13 sickles, two spears, three axes, and some bracelets into the local authorities. This rare find will be put on display in the region where it was found. The treasure may have been buried to honor someone or as a sacrifice. Archaeologists are investigating the area where a curious dog dug up a part of history.
   There is no telling what we could find if we were only allowed to dig a bit more.”

Pierre: “Hurricane Florence is still causing trouble for the Carolinas. Rivers are continuing to rise, and many farms are under water. One of the hardest hit businesses are the farmers who raise chickens, turkeys, and hogs along with their crops. An estimated 5,500 hogs and 3.4 million chickens and turkeys lost their lives in Florence. There is a push to save animals and rescuers are using helicopters to drop feed and supplies to those still unreachable. We appreciate everyone working hard to help in the recovery efforts.”

Bentley: “Blogville lost a very special friend last week when the lovely Madison D. Cat left for the Rainbow Bridge. Madi was not only the former Mayoress of Blogville, but she was also one of the funniest felines around! She was always the life of the party with her furbulous twerking moves. Her mom is continuing to blog at Downhome in N.C.: My Mind’s Eye and Angel Madi is still lending a paw on occasion.
   To honor her life, Madi’s sweetie Raz is hosting a blog hop on Wednesday, September 26. This is not a sad event because Diva Madi was all about having fun! You can join the “Come Laugh with Us” hop to post your favorite jokes, puns, poem or just a picture with a box. Find out all the details here. We will miss Madi forever.
   Let’s check in with Paisley for this week’s weather.”
BFTB NETWoof News with Paisley the Weather Lab
Paisley the Weather Lab: “As you know fall arrived over the weekend but obviously nobody told Mother Nature! Most of the country will be warm and sunny this week but let’s take a closer look at what’s happening.
   The south is expecting scattered storms all week along the Gulf coast. Florida will see pop-up showers in the afternoons. Those showers will continue up the east coast where flooding is already a problem. Hopefully, the rivers will crest and began to recede quickly. Our northern neighbors can expect scattered showers but those in the Pacific Northwest will see a return to mild temperatures and sunny skies. The West Coast continues to be hot and dry. The center of U.S. should be warm and sunny.
   Always stay tuned to local weather stations for alerts or warnings in your area. I hope you have a wonderful week no matter what the weather brings.”
Bentley: “Have you entered for a chance to win a Breakfast Buffet of treats from H&P for your dog? Today is your LAST DAY so hurry over and enter. Your dog will be so happy that you did.
   Please join us all week as we have a full slate of fun waiting. On Tuesday, we are sharing spooktacular new treats just in time for Howl-oween. Wednesday is our Pet Parade where we will also join Raz’s hop to laugh and remember Madi. September 27 is Remember Me Thursday and I urge you to join us in shining a light on the sweet animals that don’t get that loving home we all deserve. It’s going to be a great week on the Bayou.
   Thank you for joining us today and be sure to grab yourself some happy.”

  1. yay for the K9 crew and yay for the treasure finding pup in bohemia... we hope the fabulous treasure finder got millions of milkbones for that find...

  2. Those police K9s are all so special, they really put their lives on the line for humans every day! Have a great week!

  3. So sad all of the devastation the hurricane brought with it. Praying for everyone in that area. I’m hoping they can rescue more animals

  4. The overwhelming devastation in NC makes us so sad.

  5. Dogs could certainly find more treasures if humans would let them dig more.

  6. We have the fall weather here, at least for a bit. We heard it might warm up again, but let's enjoy while we can. We are off to tell Mom about that great find in Bohemia - and all due to a dog's digging - hope we can convince Mom there could be some great artifacts in our yard too:)

  9. Fall stopped by over the weekend, but must have needed more time off because it is going to be warm(for us) here on the Northy North coast for the next couple of days.

  13. I can't believes all the animals that were lost in the hurricane. I sure hopes all the shelters and volunteers can help keep the furries til their families can take them back. I gots my paws crossed real tight for them and their families. Oh, it's gonna be HOT the next four days...and we lost our AC again. sigh. Ma says we'll probably have to gets a new one next spring. Anyhu, I hopes you guys had a FABulous weekend!

  14. That first story was so awesome! We hope all those heroes find very happy homes to live out their retirement - we imagine people are lining up to adopt them.
    What an awful hurricane that was, and all the losses are so sad. We hope things settle down there very soon.
    It has been feeling like fall here in NH - all at once! I had to get out my fleece jacket to walk Luke the last couple mornings!
