BFTB NETWoof News July 8, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for Monday, July 8, 2019. We have some interesting stories for you this week so let’s get right to our top story with Pierre.”
BFTB NETWoof News Top Story
Pierre Westie: “Let’s start the week off with a love story of sorts. It happened in Russia when a dog named Shavi was a victim of a hit and run driver. She had two broken legs among other injuries and would have died if not for the kindness of two good Samaritans. They took her to the vet where they sent out a plea to find her a home. Only one person responded.
    The woman brought the dog back to her home and nursed Shavi back to health. She taught her how to walk again and a few basic commands. The family already had three cats and two rescue dogs so as much as she hated it, she found a home almost two hundred miles away for the now healthy dog. 
   Two weeks passed and the woman was walking down the road when something brushed her leg. Imagine her surprise when it was Shavi. They embraced and the woman promised to never let her go again.”
BFTB NETWoof News Bloodhound finds child
Bentley: “It’s not surprising that the dog was able to find her from two hundred miles away. You hear about it more often than you’d think. Cats have been known to travel long distances to find their families too. The nose can’t be fooled, and this story is a great example.
   A Bloodhound and its handler were on assignment in Wyoming from Colorado when the call came in about a missing child. Deputy Fosler and her dog Jessie were in the right place at the right time and asked to help with the search. 
   After a two-hour search in the 90-degree cactus-filled area, the team found the 12-year-old girl. She was dehydrated, hungry, and sunburnt but will be fine thanks to the incredible nose of Jessie the K-9.”

Pierre: “This next story is to serve as a serious warning to all of our cat friends. 
   A one-year-old cat named Felix jumped into the washer while her mom walked away to get more clothes. She usually checks for her three cats but for some reason, tossed the other clothes in and started a 35-minute wash cycle. When the machine stopped, she realized the clothes were still really wet. Just as she was about to turn the spin cycle back on, she saw Felix’s paw.
   They rushed him to the vet where they were told he had lost his vision and had pneumonia due to the excess amount of water in his lungs. Thankfully after spending some time at the vet, his vision returned, and he is eating again. Felix is still on oxygen but expected to make a full recovery. 
   I can’t imagine how scary that must have been for everyone and we are glad Felix is going to be okay. We are going to need all of the cats to swear off the washers and dryers in your home.”

Weather forecast with Paisley the Weather Lab
Paisley the Weather Lab: “I don’t know how many ways I can tell you it is going to be hot but let’s take a look at our map. 
   California, y’all are going to be hot and with the two recent earthquakes, I am asking that each of you pay close attention to your local stations for any warnings. We understand there will be countless aftershocks and those can cause a lot of damage too.
   There will be some rain in the Pacific Northwest and scattered storms across the north. The Great Lakes region will be sunny, but some storms are moving into New England. Those of you on the east coast will enjoy a nice first half of the week but storms could head your way. The Florida and Gulf Coast states are going to be stormy and muggy. Here in Texas, we are going to be baking under a hot and sunny sky. Even the middle of the country will be hot although the Rockies will experience some storms.
   Please be sure to check on the elderly during these extreme temperatures. Make sure your pets have plenty of cool water and a place in the shade if they are outdoors. Tune into your local meteorologist for any weather updates or warnings.”
Bentley: “Whew! It has really been hot down here but we still enjoy our time in the sun. 
   We have a couple of holidays coming up where you can join in the fun by sharing these banners from our friend Ann at Zoolatry. 
   Join us again on Wednesday for this week’s Pet Parade blog hop. We’d really like to see more of our fabulous bloggers join us. 
   Thanks for trusting us for your good news! Have a wonderful day and be sure to grab yourself some happy.

  1. we love the story about this wonderful reunion...and we hope all kitties stay away from washers and dryers...

  2. Safety First when it comes to our pet friends ... before starting ANY appliance, look around, be sure your pets are are where they should be, not where they should NOT be ...
    Thanks for the heart warming stories about those who do travel far and wide.

  3. Years ago, my mom knew a family whose cat got into the dryer. It didn't end well. One always has to be careful with pets and any appliances. Have a great week!

  4. Oh my! Shavi was meant to be with that family! What an awesome reunion!

  5. Thanks for having a giveaway. My dog can't wait to eat some coconut smiles. That kitty, dog and little girl were all very lucky.

  6. Thank goodness that Felix is going to be okay! Great stories this week, guys!

  7. We are always amazed at the powerful nose of dogs. Now if they could just tell us when an earthquake was coming.

  8. Holy cat-astrophy! Poor Felix; we send our best POTP for a full recovery.

  9. Cat in the washing machine! Oh my!

  10. Poor Felix, that must have been so scary for him and so traumatic for his human. Glad to hear he is going to be OK despite the horror of the experience.

    And what a wonderful story about Shavi. We had a nice story like that here last week about an Akita mix that was starving and alone, but save by a Good Samaritan.

  11. We're so happy there were happy endings, mostly, to this week's news. We know dogs are very good nosers…..and cats are curious. But there would have been unhappy endings without kind peeps, too.

  12. Guess it's a good thing that we don't have a washer and dryer! (The Hubby goes off to the laundromat every two weeks to wash up everything.)

  13. Thanks for the news update. Poor Felix, but we are happy he will make a full recovery. Hopefully the heat and humid lowers for everyone and no more earthquakes. Way to scary. Have a wonderful day.

  15. Oh, that poor kitty and his family! That is so scary. Our cat Katie used to love to hang out in the laundry room and I had to be SO careful every time I started the washer or dryer.
