Do dogs grieve? 10 December 2008  •  8 Comments

Do dogs grieve? I honestly think they do. When I lost Sheero, our human family wasn’t the only one who grieved over her passing. Coal, our black Labrador Retriever, was closest to her. We heard him howling every night for about a week after Sheero’s passing—his way of showing how […]

The FURminator deShedding Tool 3 December 2008  •  6 Comments

Ever since I got back from my trip in Batanes, I’ve been sick on and off lately. My back got wet during the crazy long boat ride when we hopped from one island to another—that’s probably why I got colds after. And because of stress, my long-dormant asthma started acting […]

The FURminator package has arrived! :) 13 November 2008  •  6 Comments

I was in for a pleasant surprise when I got home from my Batanes trip last Tuesday (well, of course, other than Shantee welcoming me and my husband with lots and lots of dog kisses). The FURminator products have arrived! Yay! Shantee and I were given a complete FURminator deShedding […]

Do you know pet CPR? 20 August 2008  •  Be the first to comment

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure we have all heard of—it has saved countless human lives from cardiac or respiratory arrest. But did you know that pets can be saved through CPR too? The question is, would you know how to administer pet CPR if something happens (God forbid) […]

Our own little dog sanctuary 29 July 2008  •  Be the first to comment

Before the family transferred to our new home in Antipolo, I’ve lived along Katipunan Avenue all my life (the C5 Katipunan Extension, to be more precise). Our street (or more appropriately, highway) was always busy with cars going to and from Ateneo, Miriam, or UP, or simply passing by since […]

Letting pet dogs out on their own in the streets 15 May 2008  •  4 Comments

As I have mentioned before, our family (both human and dogs) recently moved to the suburbs of lower Antipolo in an executive village. We’ve been here for about three months only, and yet, we’ve gotten quite used to having neighboring houses that aren’t separated from us by tall firewalls. Even […]

New house: A new dog territory! 14 April 2008  •  One Comment

Sorry for the lack of updates. My family (both humans and dogs) just transferred to a new home here in lower Antipolo in Rizal. It’s been quite stressful for all of us—even the dogs. I think Shantee‘s the only one who didn’t find it stressful at all, just another great […]

Does your dog say “sorry?” 18 February 2008  •  4 Comments

Apologizing is one of the things some of us humans have a hard time doing, especially if you’ve got a lot of pride. Others find it very difficult to acknowledge their mistakes, but some also find it easy to say “I’m sorry” even if they don’t really mean it. Before […]

Shantee the “Ghost Checker” 1 February 2008  •  Be the first to comment

For the past month, my family had been looking at houses all over Quezon City. Ever since we’ve finalized our decision to move, we’ve been “hunting” for the perfect house. It was only last week when we finally decided on which home to get. It had been difficult looking for […]

Travelling with pets 25 January 2008  •  2 Comments

Last January 11 to 13, Marc and I joined a few Pinoy travel bloggers on a trip to Boracay. Marc and I have long wanted to go there for a vacation, but our work schedules just seemed to never allow us to. Besides, we didn’t want to spend for a […]
