BFTB NETWoof News October 15, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News. We fetch the feel-good stories that will make you smile. This week is no exception so let’s check in with Pierre for our top story.

Pierre Westie: “Thanks, Bentley and hello everyone. Our top story proves what dogs have known for years. Squirrels spell trouble and a woman found that out the hard way when she tried to board a Frontier airplane with her pet squirrel. She had made reservations for herself and her “emotional support animal” but didn’t mention the animal was a squirrel.  
   An airline representative explained to the woman that rodents including squirrels are not allowed on flights. She refused to leave her seat, so authorities were called. Everyone was forced to deplane in order for police to deal with the stubborn passenger. The entire debacle delayed the flight over two hours. Let me just say once again…squirrels are trouble!”

Bentley: “This next story will have you saying, ‘Aww’ because it is about a man reuniting with his lost dog after three long years of searching.
   Giorgi Bereziani lost his best friend, Jorge the dog way back in 2015. He has looked everywhere in Georgia’s capital of Tbilisi. He put up posters and asked the townspeople for help. Over the years, he has received many false leads but earlier this month he got the call he’d been praying for! An employee of the Opera & Ballet Theater of Tbilisi contacted Giorgi to say a dog matching Jorge’s description had been hanging around. He rushed down to look and began filming just in case it was his beloved dog. IT WAS! Nobody is sure where Jorge has been for the past three years, but he was picked up by animal control at some point. They tagged his ear, neutered him and gave him immunizations. After determining he was not a threat, they released Jorge back onto the streets.
   You can watch the video to see their reactions when a man and his best buddy are reunited. Warning: You may need a tissue. It is proof that we should never give up the search for a lost pet.”

Pierre: “It’s not unusual for outside cats to disappear for a couple of days but when a Montana family’s orange tabby did not come home, they were worried. Bobby the cat had been missing for one year, but the family continued to put food out each night in hopes he’d come home.
You can imagine their surprise when they received a phone call from a shelter in Nevada saying they’d found Bobby. Luckily, he was microchipped so they knew who he belonged to but nobody is sure how he traveled 900 miles from home!
   The family is so happy to have their boy back and he is no longer an outside cat. He hasn’t given up any details of his adventures, but the best guess is he hopped a train behind their house and rode the rails. We are glad his vagabond days are behind him.”

Bentley: “We are always conflicted about zoo stories. On one paw, we hate the idea of animals being kept in enclosures but on the other paw, it is a wonderful way for people to see and learn more about animals.
However, an unusual thing happened at the El Paso Zoo that makes us think it might be a pretty good place to live after all. You see, a mountain lion was seen entering the zoo on his own free will.
   The night guard contacted zoo officials and they began a five-hour search for the furry intruder. It did not turn up anywhere on the zoo grounds and it is believed the guard along with the animal noises scared it away. They are still searching the area and if the big cat is found, it will be tranquilized and sent to a preserve in the area. Officials say it’s the first time a big cat has wandered into the facilities.
   Let’s check in with Paisley the Weather Lab for this week’s forecast.”
BFTB NETWoof weather
Paisley the Weather Lab: “I want to start off by saying how incredibly sorry we are for all of those impacted by Hurricane Michael. Our sources had originally said it would reach the Florida panhandle as a Category 1. We changed our forecast when it updated to a Category 3. This storm gained strength so fast that it was a couple of points away from a Category 5 when it came ashore. It will go down in history as one of the worst hurricanes to make landfall. Our thoughts and prayers continue as everyone tries to get back on their feet. Stay strong!
   This week will be considerably better for that region of the country. The east coast will have a very nice second half of the week. It will be hot in Florida and there will be some showers early. Along the Gulf Coast, there will be rain and cooler temperatures.
   Over in the southwest, it will be hot and sunny while along the west coast, you can expect warm days and nice evenings. If you live in the northern states, you’ll have mixed skies with much lower temperatures. Showers are expected in the New England states.
   The center of the country will see the biggest changes with frigid temperatures in parts of the Rockies. The rest of you in middle America should have a beautiful week with mild weather. It’s beginning to look a lot like autumn!
   Please stay tuned to your local stations for any updates or warnings. Have an awesome week!”
Bentley: “We are looking forward to some cooler days. Our nights have been very pleasant.
   Be sure to visit tomorrow because we are starting a brand-new giveaway with Dr. Harvey’s just in time for Halloween! We have tons of fun planned for the rest of the week too so why don’t you just subscribe to our blog. That way, you can enjoy us with your morning coffee. We LOVE coffee.
   That’s it for this week’s BFTB NETWoof News. Thanks for joining us and be sure to grab yourself some happy today!”

  1. When our kitty went missing years ago, we looked for him for a couple years, but never found him. It still bothers my mom. Have a great week!

  2. We love hearing stories when lost pets are returned to their loving homes. Who would want a squirrel as a pet?!

  3. Squirrels are always trouble, that's why NYC is doing a squirrel census now in Central Park!! Maybe Pierre and Bentley could come and help!

  4. Our crew thinks squirrels are nothing but trouble!

  5. Oh my dog! I have a smile that won't quite and tears of joy at watching Jorge be reunited with his owner. His adorable helicopter tails and squeaks of joy were so touching. And you are right, squirrels are nothing but trouble. What was that woman thinking?? I think she needs something more intensive than an emotional support animal.

  6. Great reporting my friends and I plan to recommend you for a journalism is always very good. Yay for pets found I'm pretty much speechless of the squirrel thing.
    Hugs Cecilia

  7. Those squirrels are really trouble ! Purrs

  8. Glad Bobby was found,I wonder if he ended up in a delivery truck or something.

  9. Squirrels aren't really welcomed around here, so it's no wonder they weren't on an airplane either!! Great stories, guys!!

    OMD, that video was so PAWSOME!!!! Ma had the sound on, and had to mute it cause I started barkin' with Jorge whining with happiness! BOL
    Thanks for a pawsome newscast boyz!

  13. I'm a huge supporter of service dogs, as well as therapy dogs, as you know but that squirrel lady really puzzled me. I don't blame airlines for putting some restrictions on "emotional support" animals, some passengers have actually been injured by the more unconventional ones. These lost pets stories really reinforce the importance of microchipping your dogs & cats!
    Love & Biscuits,
