I have a pet chihuahua named Hugo. We also have two dogs—a shih tzu and a maltese—at home in General Santos City. Hugo is a gift from a Brazilian guy, who claims to be one of my fans. I chose to take care of a small dog so I can bring it anywhere I go. My mom and I love Hugo so much. We make sure he visits his veterinarian regularly and that he gets all his vaccines on time. Pets have a calming effect on me…Hugo is a very sweet dog. Marinel R. Cruz
I named our 4-month-old Labrador pup Muning. I’ve always wanted to have a dog with a cat’s name. Years from now, when I call her, guests will expect a small cat, but then a big dog will run out of the house. She was given to us by my wife’s friend Kaye. Muning is very playful. Hyper. She likes to chew on our stuff. She ate my favorite slippers. We got Muning to teach our kids responsibility. My three older boys Sebastian, Szackobe and Kubrick are tasked to feed Muning. Sebastian and Kubrick clean her cage, too. Our youngest Seth’s job is to play with her in the garage. She’s the only girl in the family. My wife treats Muning like the daughter we never had.
