Wagtales: A social media app for dog-lovers!

Can’t believe it’s been almost two years since my last blog post. I think I got lazy leading up to 2016, but from then on till now? I just didn’t have the heart to blog here. I’ve lost Kubrick, Pinoy Dog-Lover’s unofficial poster furboy, and it’s been hard. I can’t bring myself to blog about it yet—the pain is still fresh even after a year—but I’ll get there.

I’d like to jump-start this blog again, and give it a whole new look. My new design and branding for Pinoy Dog-Lover is long overdue. I lost the will to finish it when Kubrick passed away. Perhaps now, I’ll be able to—it has been a year, after all.

In the meantime, let me feature something new for you dog-lovers out there: Wagtales, a new mobile app made specifically for dog-lovers in the Philippines. Continue Reading

Arf Arf & Meow Meow

Let’s begin 2015 with an event announcement! Our student friends from De La Salle University – Manila came up with a fundraising event for our favorite animal welfare organization, CARA Welfare Philippines.

What: Arf Arf & Meow Meow: A charity event for the benefit of CARA Welfare Philippines
When: May 24, 2015 (Sunday) 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Where: CityWalk 2, Eastwood City (in front of Nike and beside Zark’s)


The proceeds of the Php100 entrance fee will go to our furry friends at CARA Welfare. Expect lots of fun activities and contests for you and your pet, informative talks and raffle prizes. They will be looking for the Cutest Pet, the Happiest Face, and more, so be sure that your pet comes in his/her best!

Since the event is in Eastwood City, please don’t forget to secure your Pet Pass at the Concierge (near the entrance of Eastwood Mall). You must bring your pet’s updated vaccination records and his/her 1×1 photo for your pet’s ID (I gave them a printout on glossy paper of Kubrick’s adorable ID pic, and they accepted it!).

See you on Sunday! 🙂

PETrified Halloween Costume Contest

You know the drill. Dress up your pet with the most creative Halloween costume you can think of, pay the joining fee of Php250 (which will serve as your donation to CARA), and strut your stuff for the judges! Continue Reading

PAMA Glow Fun Run 2014

This post was filed under Doggie Fun Runs, Events, Pet Events in the City.

I always loved fun runs with my Kubrick. Unfortunately, most doggie fun runs are usually held during the summer, where mornings are scorching hot and not really friendly for my running buddy. That’s not the case with PAMA Glow Fun Run, because this fun dog-human running tandem will be held at night.

PAMA Glow Run 2014

The Philippine Alaskan Malamute Association Inc. (PAMA), in cooperation with Venice Piazza and McKinley Hill, brings you the PAMA Glow Fun Run 2014, to be held on Sunday, 25 May 2014, at the Venice Piazza Grounds, McKinley Hill, Taguig City. Call time for runners is 5PM.

Kubrick and I are looking forward to this one! It’s going to be fun to watch all those “glow blings” with their pets 🙂 I’m honestly torn between staying in the sidelines and taking pictures in the dark, but I also want Kubrick to have a bit of fun and join the run. Either way, we’ll definitely be there! 🙂 Continue Reading

UP JMA Doggie Day Fair 2

This post was filed under Events, Pet Events in the City.

Take a look at the first pet event we’re supporting this year! I know we promised less announcements in our blog, but how can we resist supporting an event in which CARA Welfare Philippines is a beneficiary? Of course, we can’t. 🙂

Hope you’ll give your support too. Details after the jump!

We’re still alive and kicking!

This post was filed under Pinoy Dog-Lover's Journal, Site Updates.

Yep, that’s right. We are still very much alive folks. Our account was compromised last month (the watch dog must have been asleep when it happened), and it took a while before I finally had the heart to re-install everything wiped out during the cleanup. As you can see, there still might be some missing stuff on the sidebar, but please don’t mind them. I’m hoping to fix the entire blog soon.

I initially wanted to be ready with the new theme before I installed the old one at the start of the year, but well, life happened 🙂

There will be some changes around here (content-wise, especially), so do keep coming back for updates! The redesign might not happen anytime soon, but we’ll definitely make some changes on the editorial side. Frankly, I’ve been getting tired of blogging only about events. Don’t get me wrong, my dogs and I LOVE the events. But I miss the kind of blogging I did back in the early days of Pinoy Dog-Lover — just everything and anything about my pets, nothing else. So yep, you’ll be seeing more of them this year!

Please do Like our Page on Facebook, Follow us on Instagram, and interact with us on Twitter. It’s so nice to be back! 🙂

Dog Tales with CARA

Here’s a little something for book-loving dog-lovers!

CARA Welfare Philippines is holding a book sale for the benefit of its rescues and animal welfare programs on Saturday, 9 November 2013, from 6PM to 1AM at Mercato Centrale in Bonifacio Global City. The books are pre-loved and ready for new owners. But best of all, you can get the titles at low, low prices! The fun part? You get to help out CARA while satisfying the bookworm in you 🙂

There will be a magic show and a bake sale. You might also want to say hello to the CARA volunteers — they’d be more than willing to tell you all about the organization and how you can help.
