Town Floral Festival & Pawrade

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

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! 😀

Town Floral Festival & Pawrade

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.

Don’t miss the fun, be there! 🙂

“Meow” says our new “dog”

This post was filed under Daily Dose, My Dogs, Pinoy Dog-Lover's Journal.

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.

Felix the Cat

Yep, Felix is a cat. Biologically, at least. But psychologically, it’s a totally different story. Continue Reading

Easter Hunt for the Golden Bone

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
