Welcome to the Philippines Pip and Puddles

Mabuhay is a Filipino greeting to welcome visitors here in the Philippines and we are happy that our very special guests this month of Hearts are Pip and Puddles.

As many of you know, Pip and Puddles are touring the world to visit friends and see the many wonderful countries around the globe. We are so excited that they are able to come visit the Piappies in their very busy itinerary.

The Philippines have many beautiful travel destinations and we are just too happy to take them around. Being a tropical country with many islands, we are known for a number of beach destinations to enjoy the sun, the sea and the sand. Some of these places are located in Iba in Zambales, Mactan in Cebu, Coron in Palawan, Tagbilaran in Bohol and you probably have heard of Boracay in Aklan! These places are known for diving, wake boarding, surfing, snorkeling, sailing and many more. The Piappies decided to take them to a beach that is just about 2 1/2 hours drive from Manila, the place is called Laiya.

It's a good thing we got the chance to take Pip and Puddles to the beach! We are city Piappies so we don't really get to travel outside Manila.  Our options for recreational activities usually involve just going to place and shopping malls, who are happy to welcome furry pups and kits. 

You see, we celebrate a lot of festivals all throughout the year and our hoomans usually take the time to go around the country.  We were not able to tour them to these festivities so we just colored our posts in different hues to give you a feel.

Wai-Pai and Forgie thought of a great idea of bringing Pip and Puddles to see special spots that WE discovered during our growing up years. These are special structures that involve dogs. PAWS which stand for Philippine Animal Welfare Society partnered with some special hoomans that made these structures and had them installed in pet-friendly complex within Manila.

We even got a special permit to have a picnic here!

It gives us a good feeling that with these statues, more and more people are aware and are reminded of the importance of proper and responsible pet care and that we should treat animals with care. It may be a small step in stopping animal cruelty but we believe this still helps.

We really want to have Pip and Puddles stay with us longer for we still got lots to show them and all of you, too but there is the circus too and we know that you are all looking forward to them joining in the fun!

Lastly, as part of the current campaign of the government to encourage visitors to come to the Philippines, we made this for all of you. We invite you to come visit us too.

Happy Weekend efurrybody!
