THE BIRTH OF AN ASPIN CLUB

Please click image to see larger version
We’ve seen it so often that most of us have begun to accept it as a way of life: purebred dogs are treated differently than native dogs even if they both live in the same house.

The native dogs stay outside & are tied up or caged for life, the perennial “bantay” in Filipino society. Bantay is usually brown or white and short-haired – the type of dog that you would usually see out in the streets. So it’s no surprise that he would always be referred to as “askal” or “asong kalye” even if he lives with a family and is never allowed to stray outside.

Bantay is not the type of dog to be cuddled as well. Barking all the time, he is expected to be scary and to drive away intruders from one’s yard.

We have seen a lot of hero dogs on TV and in the movies. But Rin-Tin-Tin, Lassie, Benjie, and Beethoven do not look like Bantay at all. So they must have been talking about a different dog when Western movies imparted those great home-grown values such as compassion and love for the dog who will give his life for its master.

The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), in cooperation with Alpo and Eastwood City, will aim to change this way of thinking through the launch of the PAWS Aspin Club on April 24 at the Eastwood Central Plaza.

The club is open to all native and mixed-breed dogs which must be friendly to both humans and other dogs. Dogs must be leashed at all times and owners must show their updated vaccination records upon registration.

The P250 annual membership fee will go to the PAWS Animal Shelter which takes care of aspins rescued from cruelty and neglect. Registration starts 3pm and the main program will begin at 4pm.

Special guest is PAWS celebrity volunteer and proud aspin owner Heart Evangelista. “We hope to change the way Filipinos look at their native & mixed breed dogs and how they treat them.”, says Heart.

PAWS has lined up a lot of fun activities such as a pet portrait area, a doggie treat cooking lesson and an agility course demonstration as well as lots of freebies for those owners who will register their dogs on April 24.

For inquiries, please email pawsaspinclub@yahoo.com.

The PAWS Aspin Club launch is made possible through the generous support of Eastwood City, Alpo, Pet Express, McDonald’s, Frontline Plus, Pooch Park, Magic 89.9, Mypetchannel.tv and the Philippine Star Pet Life Section.
