Wundercolor: Your Pet is A Masterpiece!

I’ve known Carissa Chua-Chiaco since my freshman year in college. She was one of the first friends I made in my BFA Creative Writing block. I’m so happy we’ve stayed friends through the years — I even flew all the way to Vancouver to witness her becoming Carissa Dy as she married her wonderful Daniel!…

The Littl Cute Dog

“The Littl Cute Dog” by my nephew and godson Ivo. He made this after Joey stayed w ate Unna’s family while I was away 2 years ago. I’m very lucky that my family’s in love w my dog and they’re always volunteering to take her in when I travel. My mom’s not a big dog…

Pendragon Vet Clinic

When I suspected Joey had bladder stones again, I was adamant about finding a new vet for her. I’d been going to Vets in Practice along White Plains since it opened a couple of years ago. I needed to find a new doctor because I didn’t understand why she’s peeing blood again when I followed…

Joey Bear Goes To Barkingham

I was so sad when I found out that Joey’s longtime grooming salon, The Dog Spa along Libis, had already closed down. They’re moving to a nearby location but it’s still currently under construction. I couldn’t just send Joey to a random groomer I’d never met before. Because of my crazy schedule the past few…

A Visit To The Singapore Zoo

After visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Japan last February, this might be my favorite trip yet. I mean, I saw a polar bear. A POLAR BEAR. AGHHHH the cuteness!! The Singapore Zoo is known as the world’s best rainforest zoo. We went to the zoo for Nunki (whose favorite animal is the…

Adopting/Sponsoring A Pet

My friend has been wanting to get a new dog because he can’t get his 6-year-old dog to get along with his cat. He’s been trying for a week to get them to hang out but he’s afraid his Jack Terrier might be a little too rough for his Rag Doll cat. They are both very cute…

Why Do Some Dogs Bark At Only One Person?

A little after I moved in with Jim, we’ve been lucky enough to have a maid come in a few hours a day to take care of our home. Our place is a modest 2-bedroom condo and Jim’s tita happens to have a unit exactly 4 floors below. We talked to tita Fely and her…

Taking Care of Sick Joey Bear

It’s been a hard weekend for Joey Bear. Last Thursday I took her to the vet because Jim and I noticed some blood in her urine. Each time she would pee, there would be a red coin-sized dot in her pee pad. She was spayed when she was 5 months old so in her 2…

Nangnang Saab and Joey Bear Visit Lulu

I just got home from visiting my goddaughter and niece Lulu! My car is coded today but I promised Lulu I’d bring Joey to visit her at home for her 4th birthday. So I dropped by for lunch within the window hours (for Pasig it’s 9AM til 4PM instead of the usual 10AM-3PM) and watched…
