Plaid dog collar with a small bell

A few days ago, Marc and I decided we needed a break from work (yup, work is the one of the reasons why I haven’t been blogging as regularly as before) and spent the afternoon with Shantee at Tiendesitas. Shantee behaved well (although she did get a bit iffy going down the steps), so she bought her a prize: her first-ever dog collar! ๐Ÿ™‚

Brown and red plaid dog collar with bell

Shantee still wears her dog necklaces (the customized shell dog necklace I bought her from Boracay is her favorite), but since she’s becoming such a big (little) girl already (she’s five months old now!), it’s time she got her own dog collar. I dunno, I guess I just feel it’s an insult to her “dog-ness” to not ever get her a collar. Read more

Polka-dot New Year dog dress with sash

First off… Happy New Year to all! ๐Ÿ™‚

Shantee partied with the humans in welcoming 2008. So yep, I just had to make her a Polka-dot New Year dog dress! ๐Ÿ˜€

New Year dog dress

I got the black and white polka-dots cloth from my mom’s stock. And luckily, I also found a red chiffon cloth I was able to use as a sash/belt for Shantee. Why polka-dots? Well, it’s because of this Filipino-Chinese tradition, you see. Read more

“Ghost of Christmas Past” Yuletide dog dress

When my dad told me that we’ll be going to two family parties on Christmas Eve and another one on Christmas Day, and that Marc and I could bring Shantee along in these family reunions, we figured that she should be dressed up for the occasion.

I made Shantee a red velvet dress with gold trimmings, which strongly reminded me of the Ghost of Christmas Past from the movie, “A Christmas Carol,” whenever she wears it. But my husband Marc calls it “Shantee’s Harry Potter Dress.” Read more

Cutesy girly dress for a cutesy girly dog

When the family brought Shantee shopping in Tiendesitas two weeks ago, I was feeling a bit disheartened that I won’t be able to buy Shantee as many dog clothes as I wantedรขโ‚ฌโ€each piece was just expensive. The Disco Dog shirt I got didn’t really come cheap, you know.

But look here, Shantee has a new purple girly dog dress!

Would you believe I made that? Really, I did. I honestly couldn’t believe I could come up with a dog dress like that myself. But yes, this dog dress was made by hand and with love! (Unfortunately, my mom’s sewing machine needed to undergo major repairs) ๐Ÿ˜› Read more

Shantee’s “Disco Dog” shirt

Yeah yeah! Shantee feels so 90’s with this cute new shirt:

I just love the aqua blue color ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, we got this shirt at Animals & Things in Tiendesitas’ Pet Village for Php450 (that’s about US$11). There were actually much cheaper dog clothes there, but I just liked the color so much. Besides, Shantee’s adorable in it, isn’t she? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Shopping at Tiendesitas

In order for me to agree to him buying a DLSR, Marc agreed to let me buy Shantee some fancy clothes. So after bribing my mom a free dinner for the family at Tiendesitas, we were off!

Pet Village at Tiendesitas

Tiendesitas is located at Ortigas Avenue, corner E-Rodriguez Avenue (C5). It’s a great place to go to with the entire familyรขโ‚ฌโ€you can shop, dine, and simply relax. It’s actually famous for its Pinoy arts and crafts, but for us dog-lovers, it’s a haven for pet stuff.

There were actually some rumors going around about a year ago that The Pet Village had a dog virus going around. Unless it never was true, the management seemed to have done something about it already since we didn’t see any sick dogs around. The pets for sale seem to be healthy, they could be healthier (as in, Shantee-healthy! Hehe) but they seem ok.

As I said, The Pet Village in Tiendesitas is a haven for pet-lovers. There are a lot of shops with cute dog clothes and things, and some even offer grooming and boarding! Pretty cool eh?

I bought Shantee a dog shirt, which you ought to watch out for in my next post! It’s just so cute ๐Ÿ™‚

Saucy collar

I got this cute saucy collar for my dog, Sheero, a few months ago:

No, those aren’t real diamonds! But my dog feels pretty wearing it ๐Ÿ™‚

I bought this collar from Bio Research in SM Megamall for about P179 (that’s around $4). I meant for it to be Sheero’s “going out” collar, but she seems quite fond of it already so I just left it on her. The collar certainly gave my dog a touch of class! ๐Ÿ˜€
