I’ve always thought of the month of May as the “flower month” when parades and fiestas. When I was younger, my family accompanied my grandma to Gapan, Nueva Ecija (her hometown province) every May for the yearly fiesta. There were bazaars stalls in the town center, selling a variety of goods from food to household knick-knacks. But my favorite were the parades. The town’s most beautiful ladies paraded under a garland of flowers, followed by a marching band. Now, imagine all that but replace the “beautiful ladies” with dogs…
It’s going to be fun! 😀
The Town Floral Festival & Pawrade is another fun event brought to you by BabyMoon Pawprints and Paws & Tails. You can check out the festivities this coming Saturday, 25 May 2013 at the Town Plaza of Alabang Town Center from 10AM to 5PM. There will be Pet Blessing, Floral Costume Competition, and a Floral Float Competition and Pawrade.
The past few months have been so hectic that I haven’t really blogged much about our own pack. Even worse, my iMac’s hard drive decided to conk out after 4 years of uninterrupted use (I’m lucky the service technician was able to retrieve my files!). A lot has happened — we’ve lost beloved furry friends along the way, but also gained new ones. One particular meowing “dog”, in fact.
Everyone, meet Felix.
Yep, Felix is a cat. Biologically, at least. But psychologically, it’s a totally different story. Continue Reading
Here’s an interesting pet event for folks in the north of the metro!
Pet One Dog Care on Wheels will have its first stop at the SM Fairview Atrium Annex 2 this coming Sunday, 21 April 2013. It’s going to be a whole-day event, from 10AM to 7PM. And when we say “first stop,” yes, Pet One Dog Care on Wheels will soon visit other areas within the Philippines! You might not be able to go this time because it’s far, but who knows? Your nearest mall might be the next location! 🙂 Continue Reading
Hey dog-lovers! Got no plans for Easter yet? Join CARA and the rescued Pitbulls for another fun-filled family day at the Easter Hunt for the Golden Bone on Sunday, 31 March 2013 at the Greenbelt 3 Park grounds from 10am to 5pm. Yep, it’s going to be a whole-day event!!!
And guess what… Aside from celebrating Easter, we’ll also be celebrating the first anniversary of the Pitbulls’ rescue from an illegal dog-fighting ring in Laguna. So hard to believe that just a year before, the Pitbulls were in such horrible condition. When you see them now, you’d never believe they’re the same dogs! We here at Pinoy Dog-Lover fully supports this cause, and we’d love for you to come and celebrate with all of us! 🙂 Continue Reading

On 9 March 2013, Saturday (that’s tomorrow!), Marie Antoinette’s Ball will be held at the Activity Area of Bonifacio High Street from 3PM onwards.
Shantee, my little Dog Fashionista, is definitely going. I just hope I can convince my husband Marc to be Kubrick’s handler so Shantee will have a doggie date! My pretty dog can’t go stag 😀 Continue Reading
Let’s kick off the year here in Pinoy Dog-Lover with another awesome event — Love Tails: A Valentine’s Celebration for the LUV-A-BULLS!
Love Tails will be held on 16 February 2012, Saturday at Greenbelt 3 Park. There’s going to be a fun fair starting 4PM, followed by a dinner banquet for humans and dogs at 6PM. Seating is limited for the dinner banquet, so best to get your ticket the soonest!
Organized by Ayala Center & Greenbelt, together with ALL4PETSParty.com, Paws & Tails and Baby Moon Paw Prints, all proceeds from Love Tails will go to CARA Welfare Philippines and the remaining Laguna Pitbull rescues. So basically, you’ll be having a feast with your furry dates while at the same time helping the rescues who have yet to meet their own human forever dates. What better way can you spend your post-Valentine date than spending it with your pooch at Love Tails? 🙂 Continue Reading
