Dogs are our link to paradise, they don’t know evil or jealousy. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden where doing nothing was not boring. It was PEACE.


It is a very prestigious honour to be invited to judge a Dog Fashion Show, sponsored by Island Rescue Organisation (IRO) Bacolod Chapter, a non-profit organization composed of volunteers dedicated to helping the plight of animals  through rescue, education and advocacy.  Bacolod Dog Lovers Organization (BDLO), Community Animal Rescue Efforts ( CARE), an organization that rescue animals in need for adoption and in some cases, euthanasia of terminally ill street animals. and Wags Grooming and Pet Supplies, a pet boutique that offer quality supplies and offer  full services in grooming. It is a one-stop shop for all your pet needs, located at #54 Gatuslao Street, Bacolod City, with contacts numbers (mobile) 09208136830 / 09155966096) and landline number 704-3123.


The FurMasskara Dog Fashion Show is a doggie runway show and pet parents as they parade across the stage in their masquerade costumes  It was fun and entertaining as it sounds.

As a pet lover myself, I felt truly honoured and be a  part of this successful event.  Seeing pups walked with their pet parents made me smile. For many, raising their beloved fur baby brings them joy and gives them a sense of purpose, similar to parents raising a human child.

While our dogs may look a bit different from human children, study shows that their feelings towards us are similar. just like human children, our dogs, kittens look to their “parents” to give them feelings of security and reassurance when exploring their environment. So don’t let anyone tell you that your fur-baby is  “just a dog or a kitten”; we know that your relationship is much more than that!























What’s best on the said event is that the organizers bring awareness to the audience, pet lovers and pet parents that we must cherish our pets. Pets are family! Love them unconditionally as our pets love us unconditionally. No matter how bad our day, no matter how stressful our job,  and no matter how tired we are, just seeing our pet, lifts our spirit.. No matter what circumstances, you can always count on your dog to be  loyal and faithful.

And to bring awareness that we must take part of this great cause to  help, adopt, and foster animals in need. As a pet  lover and truly an advocate for the cause of rescuing and  feeding stray animals, I urge everyone  to help, support and give to your local rescue, it would make an amazing difference in how many animals could helped. For those who have the money to buy extravagant gifts, instead of buying a designer bags for thousands of pesos, look somethings that costs half that pice and give the savings to your local rescue. Makes sense right?  It that happened we could significantly cut, and eventually drop the number of strays, help pet owners whose fur babies need medical care but cannot afford it, and go a long way of reminding people what is truly important.

Dogs and Kittens solely love their human. Get your pets from shelters or rescues. Let’s dive in and help!

I want to travel the world and I want to feel the anonymity of being in a foreign city and being surrounded by hundreds of people who are going in a hundred different directions.
