THE Department of Biology of the Ateneo de Manila University and its partner student group, the Ateneo Biological Organization – eXplore. eXperience. eXcel. (BOx), will hold another Bring Your Own Dog Day event on Oct. 10.
This will be the third BYOD Day staging inside the campus. The first one, held on Oct. 12, 2015, was part of BOx’s annual Animal Welfare Week and was designed to help members and students of the Loyola Schools to get some stress relief during midterm week in the company of dogs. The short program allowed over 200 visitors to spend time with 10 dogs in special play pens at the Science Education Complex field.
The most recent BYOD Day was held last March 14 and attracted over 300 visitors who came to see the 14 participating dogs.
The organizers ensure that all dog participants have updated vaccinations. Female dogs in estrus (heat) are not allowed to join.
BOx representatives said they plan to hold a BYOD Day four times per academic year – one every midterms and finals exam season of both semesters. The BYOD Day on Oct. 10 will be the first for Academic Year 2016-2017 and is expected to be attended by more humans and canines. The organizers would like the BYOD Day to be acknowledged by the administration as a key aspect of the school’s community wellness program and with dogs (and other animal companions) being regarded as partners in mutual healing.
PET owners who are always looking for more options when shopping for their pets' needs should pay Landers Superstore a visit.
Located in EDSA, Balintawak Quezon City, the sprawling superstore offers a wide variety of goods for cats and dogs, many of which are not seen in most retail stores. As this is a superstore, expect to buy items by the dozens or in big boxes, bags or packs.
From the store entrance, walk up straight to the right side and all the way down the aisle to find the pet section. There you will see stacked from the floor to the highest shelf mostly imported pet items ranging from dog and cat food (wet and dry varieties), treats of all kinds, bath and cleaning essentials, kitty litters and doggie pads, to dog bowls and pet toys plus a lot more.
