Gone to the Dogs

“I think I’m gonna hurl.”

So Halloween is coming up in a little more than a month and I thought of possible costumes for my dogs to wear during the Halloween dog parade at Eastwood. Then, I remembered the dismal turnout last year and decided against it. Rockwell Powerplant might hold their own dog parade later this year and we plan on participating in that. Meanwhile, we’ll just take our usual stroll along Roxas Boulevard, my own neighborhood, or the outside of Powerplant mall. Might try walking them around the Ateneo campus and take a look at the zen gardens Anna D. mentioned.

Anyone have good ideas where I can take my dogs for a walk in Manila? It’s rather hard to find places with fresh air in this city.

    Well Libis is nice :) and there’s the greenbelt park? And this is going to sound weird, but some of the “high end” cemeteries are nice places to take them walking. Eternal Gardens in Caloocan and Manila Memorial Park in Sucat have rather large ground :)

    thanks, peter. i totally forgot about greenbelt park. :) might try out the cemeteries when i’m in a gothic mood. hehe. i took them around the everest memorial park in susanna heights once and they enjoyed the wide spaces.

    the american cemetery in fort bonifacio is wonderful. i’m not sure if they still allow the public in though.

    what about UP Diliman? not advisable during the weekday, but it’s a good place to go on sundays.

    lol, just stay within the oval and you’ll be fine :) they close off one side of the oval, i think, during sunday to accomodate the joggers and cyclists.
