My Christmas Wish for my Pets by Michelle Perlas

This Blog post is from Contest Winner Michelle Perlas

Christmas is coming and yes, we are all excited for it even our four legged babies too. And ofcourse, our Christmas wishlist is waiting to be fulfilled. All furparents have their own wishes especially for their beloved babies. And I, as one of them have my own list of wishes that I wanted to fulfill for my dogs this coming holidays!

First is health. Having lost two of my furbabies,  it gets me very worried whenever my dogs are not feeling well and because I love them, I don't want my pets to suffer the same thing so I do my best to provide them anything they need to make them healthy and strong.

Second is needs. My dogs love to eat. And having three babies at home, the scarcity of food is pretty much high. So in order for them to get by, I wish that I can provide them their daily food and medicine so they will have a healthy living and they won't starve.

Last but not the least,  is essentials. And it includes the things they are needing for their hygiene or grooming, clothing and leisures such as treats and toys. I love dressing up my babies and I love to bathe them so they always smell good. I am the happiest whenever I see them play with toys because I know that they are enjoying every moment. And I am the proudest whenever they behave and follow my instructions and as a reward for their good behavior I am giving them some tasty treats. And that is why I also wish that I can continuously provide them all of these so my babies will always be happy.

All in all, I know every furparents will also wish what I wanted for my furbabies and I’m really hoping that all of this will be granted. ❤

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a very prosperous New Year! Let’s spread love!

My Holiday Pet Pageant Experience by Ella Ronquillo Victorio

This Blog post is from Contest Winner Ella Ronquillo Victorio


At first, I’m scared to join the pet event of Baby Moon Pawprints in Alabang Tow Center because I don’t know how to go there and what to expect. This was going to be the second time I’ll joining a big event. I told the person beside me that I wasn’t prepared and that time I thought that I don’t have a chance to win any contest. I told myself that we should enjoy the contest and experience the day. 

The moment when the contestants were called, I was very nervous because I saw that the other contestants seemed professional and others are popular in pet world. While they were walking, I watched them, saw how do they moved on stage. When it was my turn, I saw the large audience and camera woman around us that made me feel more nervous but excited. 

I’m smiling like my lips are on ice! 

While I’m walking with baby Tintin on the stage, I’m worried about her. I want her to be brave and not scared of people but Tintin did not disappoint me. We walked on the stage and posed. After the show, it was awarding time. We didn’t expect to be called because we’re not yet prepared. But I was shocked when our name was announced that we are best in Christmas Costume Theme. We didn’t expect that we will win any award. Until now, I can’t get over it and I still want to thank them for the experience and award because they appreciate our costumes.

My Holiday Pet Pageant Experience by Blanche Mapile

This Blog post is from Contest Winner Blanche Mapile

            December 3, 2016, Saturday. Finally the day has arrived! It's time for the Pet Fashion and Trends Holiday Pageant organized by Baby Moon for Pets.

            After frenzied preparations of 9 dogs (6 to be entered in the costume contest), off we went to Alabang Town Center. But alas! Traffic was bad. In my head I prayed "Lord I prepped and looked forward to this for weeks. Please don't let it all be in vain."

            Thankfully, we made it before show time! We even got a quick parking slot and the perfect spot to sit and wait for the program to start. Got some coffee and pastries for my pet nannies to enjoy while we put on finishing accessories and props for the dogs and handlers.

            Saw familiar faces, pawrents and pawbabies alike. I managed to exchange smiles, nods, waves and quick hellos with dog group friends, our lovely pet photographer Che Vienes and my indefatiguable couturier Sanchia de Asis. The slight drizzle did not dampen the spirits of everyone in the ATC Town Plaza.

            Shortly, the pageant began. The pets and their owners were all so adorably adorned in Christmas themed outfits. Dogs & cats of different breeds wore Santa suits, Christmas colored gowns and other Yuletide costumes.  Then it was our turn to take the stage. My 3 pet nannies and I scurried and scrambled on and off stage to ramp and photograph 6 dogs one after the other.

            Cooper in his Santa's Elves Alabaster Snow and Bushy Evergreen ensemble. Athena as Mrs. Claus and Achilles as Ebenezer Scrooge. Mocha was Olive the Other Reindeer, Dacia was the Christmas Angel and Darcy was Father Christmas.

            For the second set of the evening, the designers' showcase, Athena wore a yellow feathered dress with a floral printed green, yellow and black poufy skirt with a matching flowery fascinator from Petnannies Petshop Avant Garde Collection.

            Other PAWsome furbabies and their equally PAWbulous furents worked the catwalk and sashayed down the runway with gowns, dresses and outfits from Maita Rue's Baby Moon for Pets and Petnannies Petshop by Sanchia de Asis.

            On the whole, it was a fantabulous experience! Especially since we won Best Holiday Costume (Cooper), Pet/Eco Friendliest Costume (Darcy) and Holiday e-Card Runner Up (furmom – me). It was also Athena's debut as a pet pawshion model.

My Christmas Wish for My Pet by Lorena Nuguid-Garcia

This Blog post is from Contest Winner Lorena Nuguid-Garcia

I want my furkid to be cured from his atopic disease. I want him to experience how to play with other dogs, see him running and enjoying life. We’ve already tried everything that we could use to treat his illness but according to the doctor it is something that is incurable. I want to heal his wounds and ease that itchiness so he can sleep peacefully at night.

* There are somethings we take for granted. Lorena's baby is special because his fur mom is a special person.

My Christmas Battles. Thoughts and Wishes by Theresa Halili

This Blog post is from Contest Winner Theresa Halili

3 1/2 years ago...the first time I laid my eyes on you, I thought: you are just a "dog"   

Just a dog.... 

As years passes by, trials came into our lives... in my life, changes from happiness to a great sadness, smiling face in the camera, posted in FB but, deep inside, I was breaking.

Nobody … not  anybody can see the sorrow within me, no one knows the fake smile…. It was all hidden behind a face of a clown…. all of it…

To be happy …THAT’S ALL I WANT TO BE…. and  its becoming real when I'm with you, my Lally. You're the only one who feels the pain in me, you're the only one who's beside me every time I cried in my silence. You're the only one who loves me unconditionally, the only one who stuck beside me no matter what, the only one who wipes my tears rolling in my cheeks and you're the only one who in my time ... My saddest time ... and makes me smile .

Funny it may seems, why am I supposed to have an entry and  write in this blog. ...MY CHRISTMAS WISH TO MY LALLY. Can I make this different? The other way around? Because I know more than anybody else in this world, in this moment, I am the ONE who needs more of love of my baby LALLY.

I don’t know how will it become without Lally. The ONLY creature standing still besides me, showing love and affection, feel the importance of my existence and NEVER EVER change the way she looks at me. I wish that when the time puts us in end, YOU AND I, will be together becaue NO ONE in this world…… will love ME more than YOU.

I needed you in my battle…I WISH WE WILL BE HERE TOGETHER until it LAST..and be up THERE …and be HAPPY FOREVER…YOU AND I.


* This entry is not quite a wishlist but the words were moving so we thought she should win an award. Theresa's entry is the fifth place winner.

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
