Doggy Picnic at the Big House

 Last August 29, the Big House and Pet Fashion and Trends have hosted a Doggy Picnic at the Big House. Fourteen dogs were in attendance. This informal gathering gave a chance for pet owners to mingle and meet new friends. It is also a time to let the dogs out and have fun.
Features of the Doggy Picnic are a buffet table, an exhibit of dog clothes, games and some freebies from Bosche Dog Food.

Style Origins 2016

 Last August 6, 2016, Bonifacio High Street celebrated Style Origins 2016 with the theme Music, Arts and Style. Baby Moon Pawprints represented Hobbes and Landes with a fifteen-piece collection. The collection by Designer Maita Rue is a fusion between modern and Filipiniana materials. There are some native fabrics, wood, can tops, buttons and other eclectic mix telling a narrative of pride and identity.
 The evening was rainy but the event was well-attended. With last minute model changes and wardrobe malfunctions, the show impressed many who haven't seen the backstage kerfuffle.

 The show seeks to showcase design, style and a new pet-friendly lifestyle.

Top 10 Mistakes Pet Parents do to their Fur Babies

We try to be pet parents more than responsible pet owners but they must be a balance somewhere. Here are some of the mistakes we might have committed while “Parenting” our pets.

  1. Over feeding them – who doesn’t love a snack or two or three of ten? The worse part is when we give table food like fat and cards to our babies.
  2. Over indulging them with toys – What’s a toy or two? Well, it spoils the pet if you give too much.
  3. Reprimanding bad behavior but not following through with punishments – bad dog! Here’s a cookie.
  4. Praising them in everything – and I mean everything. Even in bad behaviors.
  5. Keeping them too busy – too much play and education can tire them out.
  6. Keeping them too bored – at the same time too much doing nothing is… well… boring. We need to give out pets something to occupy their minds.
  7. Keeping them in cages – sometimes, we just cage our pets instead of watching over them. Don’t leave them in cages for more than eight hours. It is cruel!
  8. Letting them roam free in the streets – no babysitter, no problem! The street is your crib!
  9. Not limiting their playtime – even kids have limited play time. Keep your fur babies in a schedule so they know when play, rest and feeding time occurs.
  10. Spanking them too hard.

So, how many did you score?

Simple Cookie Base

Always having a hard time making cookies for you and your pet? Here's a simple four-ingredient solution that you can modify any way you want.

1 cup peanut butter (I prefer unsweetened)
1 cup whole wheat or all purpose flour (have some more on hand in case it is too wet)
1 large egg
1 tsp. baking powder

  • Pre-heat over at 350degrees before you start.
  • Mix all ingredients well.
  • Grease you baking tray.
  • On a flat surface, flatten your ingredients. If it is too sticky, coat with more flour. one it is 1/4 to 3/8 inch thin, use cookie cutter for desired shapes.
  • Lay out on greased baking pan. Leave ample space between each cookie. I out 6 to 8 cookies in a pan.
  • Bake for 8 to 12 minutes. Once baked, take out of the pan to cook.
  • Store in air-tight container.

Want to add flavor your your dogs? Try adding one or more of the following:
  • Pureed liver 
  • Boiled squash
  • Oatmeat
  • Carrob chips
  • Grated cheese
  • Grated carrots
  • Salmon bits
