The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is abuzz with fundraising activities this month of October and November. One of the events, which PAWS dubbed as "Ang Pinakamagandang Hayop sa Balat ng Lupa", is a dog show like no other. It is exclusive to Filipino or native dogs and carries with it a prize of Php10,000 for the champion. It's time for our very own to take the center stage and show the world how pretty they are and that we Filipinos are proud them!

The dogs will need to undergo an audition process which will be held at PARC on Sunday, October 8, 2006, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

You don't have a native dog to enter? Why, we can remedy that---> Adopt! :)

Please email philpaws @ for your queries regarding the event/s or the adoption process. You may also text or call 0922-8815600. PLDT phone is still down, down, down.

    I think people often overlook the importance of grooming their pets as a way to contribute to their overall good health. Here are just a few more tips on pet grooming. You must groom your pets whole body including the legs, tail, and underbody if you want to do it right.
    You must groom certain pets from the skin outward to truly be effective in taking care of their coat of hair and keeping it healthy. Comb through the unseen healthy hair and remove the shedding hair; this is what most groomers do first before cutting your pet's coat. You must groom some animals all at once while some other animals have so much hair that it is esier to do a little at a time each day. You know your pet is well mannerd when it will sit still and alow you or a professional to perform regular grooming and maintenence without any fuss. If you feel you just don't have the time or desire to do it yourself, its time to call the professionals. Your dog will love you for it, and you'll feel great about it too. Hope this was helpful.

Please do not leave your email or contact numbers in the comments. Email me directly at sherwin @ if you have concerns or questions. This blog is increasingly attracting breeders/pet sellers trying to advertise their business through the comments and I don't want that. The blog seems to also be becoming a bulletin board of sorts for people who wish to abandon their pets. allows no way to edit your comments so there I have no other option but to delete comments that I deem inappropriate in this regard. I apologize for the inconvenience. Again, if you have any questions/concerns, better to email me at sherwin @ than to comment here. Thank you very much!
