BFTB NETWoof News June 17, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to this week’s BFTB NETWoof News. We have fetched some great stories to help put a smile on your face. We understand that the human news can be depressing so our news this week is all tail wagging happy!”
Pierre Westie: “Our top story took place in southern California where a small dog had decided to defend his yard from a baby bear. The problem is that baby bears usually come with mama bears and this cub was no exception.

   When the mama bear came to defend her baby by attacking the dog, its owner came to defend the pup. Unfortunately, he chose to kick the bear in order to save his dog and the mama quickly turned her attention to him. The man was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The pup is expected to make a full recovery too.   Both bears were tranquilized and taken for observation before being returned to the hills where they live.”
Bentley: “Kids playing at a park in Denver, Colorado saw a car drive up and put a dog out before driving away. The poor thing roamed the area for six days before people were able to coax her inside. A mother and her son took the dog to the vet who in turn contacted the president of the Front Range Explosives Detection Group because this abandoned dog was a Belgian Malinois. Known for their high energy and love for work, the dog named Karma finished her training in April and is now working with the Denver sheriff’s office as an explosion detection K-9. How’s that for good Karma?”
Pierre: “Most humans love spending fun times with their dogs. It can help relieve the day-to-day stress the human life involves. The problem is that your dog understands you better than you might think. Research in Sweden shows that dogs living with chronically stressed people are also stressed out.     
   To find the stress levels in the humans and dogs, the researchers measured the concentrated stress hormone cortisol in their hair and fur.  Not surprising the high stressed humans and their dogs both had high levels of cortisol in their hair and fur. Maybe everyone needs to adopt the attitude of their dog instead of the other way around.   When something stressful happens, smell it, kick dirt over it, and go take a nap!”
Bentley: “Speaking of stress…I hate to complain but we had some really bad storms yesterday and I didn’t like them one bit. The reason that I bring this up is not only because it is almost time for our weather report but because storms and fireworks are going to become more frequent as we head into summer. 
   That means you need to keep a supply of Treatibles® on hand. Yesterday I took two single-serving blister packs several hours apart. It helped me not be so nervous during the hardest parts of the storm. Y’all, the wind was blowing so hard that it blew over our huge night blooming jasmine planter! Normally, I would have lost my mind over all the racket, but it wasn’t so scary after the Treatibles oil started working. The bottom line is that if your dog or cat has anxiety over storms or fireworks, I recommend Treatibles in the oil or chews. It has changed my life.
   Now, let’s see if I’m going to need more this week. Paisley?” 
Paisley the Weather Lab: “Hi everyone. We are welcoming summer this Friday although the heat in some areas make it seem as though it's been here a few weeks! 
   We are really going to be feeling the heat in the west and the south with hot and humid days. Our friends to the north and east will be experiencing even more rain. Hopefully, the summer months will give y’all a chance to dry out from all the soaking rains this spring.
   Have a wonderful week and be sure to keep an eye to the sky and ear to your local weather forecasts.”
Bentley: “Thank you for joining us this week for more good news. We’d love for you to share our blog with your friends on social media.
   We hope to see you again on Wednesday and Friday for more fun. Pssst, we have a super-duper contest starting soon with Dr. Harvey’s!!
   There are also some important holidays to remember this week and we have badges to help you celebrate!
They might not be our favorite people to visit but we sure are thankful for our vets!
I ask you, is there anything better than a box? 

Celebrate International Box Day this Wednesday.
    Have a wonderful day and be sure to grab yourself some happy!”

Don’t Stress


  1. wow bears are more that we can bear...ind any way

  2. We are so happy for Karma! We don't think that kicking a bear would be a wise decision. Thank goodness no one died!

  3. I could see my mom attacking a bear to save us which would probably get us all killed. Lots of happy endings in the news today. Have a fun week.

  4. Oh I am soooo glad for the happy ending wiv Karma..good Karma indeed

  5. Those are some interesting stories indeed! Thanks for the report.

  6. We are lucky to have a stress-free human

  7. Wow, I cannot believe someone would dump a dog like that in Denver. Well any dog, for that matter. Glad things ended well for Karma where she'll no doubt serve the sheriff's office with distinction.

  8. Who could dump a dog? We had some really bad storms too. In fact, we were under 2 Tornado warnings. Yes we had to take to shelter and the closest tornado that touched down was in a town near us but thankfully one didn't our town. Woo.

  9. I much prefer your news to the one on tv. :)

  10. Oh! I didn't know about International Box Day: I'll hunt up a badge! We've had so much rain, that I feel like I'm beginning to grow mold! If you see a mushroom sticking out of my head, don't assume it's just my hat!

  11. We kind of wonder if it will ever be hot enough for thunderstorm season to hit here. We're still in April showers mode. LOL

  13. FABulous newscast boyz!!!! I loved the doggie that turned into a Police Doggie!!! Oh, I hopes they have to chase down the peeps who left him at the side of the road and give them a bite in the ass!
    (if he doesn't, I will...☺)
    Thanks for the good news, it's been a bad week....

  14. Pawsome news. I hope some really bad karma hits that family who dumped their dog. Human stress affects cats too. Good you have those hemp treats. TW used CBD oil but hasn't given me any.

  15. I don’t understand how people can dump dogs! Thank you for a great news update this week

  16. How does anyone do that to a dog. Bravo to him for becoming a police dog
