BFTB NETWoof News February 11, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to this week’s BFTB NETWoof News. We have some great stories for you so let’s throw it over to my co-anchor Pierre for the top story.”

Pierre Westie: “For Valentine’s Day week, we have some stories about love and rescues starting with a dog that was labeled ‘Britain’s Loneliest Dog’ after spending over five years in a rescue shelter.
   Freya is a six-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix that is described as a sweet and friendly bundle of joy and affection. The shelter’s deputy kennel manager voiced her concern after over 18,000 visitors and not a single adoption offer for Freya. They weren’t sure if her diagnosis of Epilepsy was a deterrent or not, but she is such a great dog that it seemed so unfair for her to spend years waiting. 

   That is when Hollywood director and film maker Michael Bay heard about Freya. Being an animal lover, he decided to get her on board for his next project in The Transformers movie franchise! Freya has a part in the blockbuster movie series AND he is prepared to adopt her if this newfound stardom fails to find her the perfect home.”  

Bentley: “We have discussed how much we love our Ring doorbell. It is a wonderful way to monitor your home for deliveries, visitors or in some cases, emergencies. 
   That is what happened in Florida when a woman suffered a stroke in her home. Her two Labradors were there with her and she told them, ‘Mommy needs help!’ That was all they needed to hear and off they ran. The Ring video shows the dogs running to the neighbor’s home across the street and alerting the resident who followed them back to their home. She found the lady unconscious and called 911. The dogs’ quick action is credited to saving their owner’s life.”

Pierre: “Labs are really working overtime in the hero department this week. A 4-year-old black Lab mix named Midnight is credited with saving her neighbor’s life in Minnesota. The dog sensed something was wrong when she went outside with her owner. Her ears perked up and the alert owner followed Midnight to the other side of their house. There, lying in the snow was their 87-year-old neighbor. She had fallen in the snow trying to fill her birdfeeder. The temperature was a bone-chilling -1°F and they figured she had been there about 30 minutes. Thankfully, Midnight arrived with help in the nick of time.  We are so proud of all our hero dogs this week!”
Bentley: “We stress the importance of bringing your dogs and cats inside during extreme weather but there are still stories like this one that tell us we need to bark it every day! 
   Fluffy the cat lives in Montana where this winter has been brutal. Her owner found the cat nearly frozen and unresponsive in a snowbank after being left outside in the frigid weather for hours. They rushed her to the vet where her temperature was so low it didn’t register on the thermometer. 
   The vets used warm water, warming blankets, heating pads and a heated cage to bring Fluffy back around. We are happy to report that she has not only made a full recovery but is an indoor cat forever!
   Let’s check in with Paisley the Weather Lab to see if she is going to be a hero with this week’s weather forecast.”
Paisley the Weather Lab forecasting weather
Paisley the Weather Lab: “Let me start by saying how proud I am of my fellow Labs for being so awesome. As for the weather, it will be less than awesome this week. 
   The Pacific Northwest will get clobbered with more snow before temps begin to rise. That cold snowy weather is going to continue its trek across our northern states bringing cold, snow or a wintery mix. 
   If you live along the east coast, west coast or the Gulf coast, you can expect showers through the week. I don’t think it will be anything major just more of an annoying rain. It’ll be breezy in the center of the country and if you are looking for sunshine, head to Colorado! 
   I know our readers in the Seattle area aren’t used to driving in this much snow so please, be careful and if you don’t have to be out, stay home. As always, tune to your local weather for updates and warnings. Have a great week no matter what the weather is doing.”
Bentley: “Thank you for joining us this week on BFTB NETWoof News. We appreciate your support and would love for you to share our link with your friends and followers.
   We will be here all week with some more fun and ways to make you smile. Have a wonderful day and be sure to grab yourself some happy.”
