Pet friends, furparents – welcome to Banilad Town Center’s Pawpalooza 2012! Our dear Basti was thrilled to be in another social event again this year and was close to telling me off why I always go to social events and he can’t! Hahaha.
What a super, super, fun day it was! All kinds of dogs, cats were in attendance and yes, we saw snakes, too, and turtles!
One of the highlights of the event was the first ever photo exhibit at the BTC lobby in cooperation with Banana Babies and Royal Pictures featuring Cebu’s “Pawsonalities” and their fur babies. Among the few we saw were friends’ Lord Latonio, Jude Bacalso and shadow, Paolo Mendoza and Kobe, Bevlee and Ego and Id and more.
Notable speakers, Professional dog behaviorist Jojo Isorena and Canine Life and Social Skills Instructor and Evaluator Elsie Araneta held a talk entitled “Training the Companion Dog: Real Training for Real Life Skills”.
“We know how important pet-friendly facilities in the city are to pets and their humans and at BTC, we have created an environment and culture where they can spend quality time together while going about their day whether it is running errands, getting checked up or groomed at the vet, doing the groceries, getting a bite to eat at any of the dining establishments with al fresco areas or simply just lounging and sharing bonding moments. At BTC, pets are part of the family.” says Kyle Kokseng, general manager of BTC.
Pawpalooza is brought to you by Cebu Veterinary Doctors, Cebu Shih Tzu Club, Philippine Dog Athletics Association, K9 Care Dog Sport, Island Rescue Organization, Silk Creation, Sassy Pets Enterprises, Banana Babies, Royal Pictures and the City of Cebu.
