Dog Person for the month of May.

I never thought that maintaining a blog would be challenging. First of, I do not have a camera or a mobile phone with a camera, therefore I cannot record memorable experiences that I can blog. But, then again I remembered the main reason why I decided to blog, I blog because I wanted to make a difference, I blog because I believe that I have something to say. I blog because I want to.

And then, I was able to meet an epitome of animal lovers in the Philippines. Her name is Tina Alviar Agbayani. Well, I met her on Facebook, and I was inspired by her since day one.

Maybe you are wondering why I consider her the epitome of animal lovers in the Philippines, Tina is not only a mother to her children, she is also a mother to her dogs, chinchilla, turtle and iguana. All her dogs are rescued from different animal shelters, and that is one thing that I love about her. She can actually buy pure bred dogs, but she preferred to save lives.

Tina's son at SAWS
I can say that she is one of the kindest mother on earth, because she is teaching her children how to treat animals with respect.

                Tina is not looking at the dog's physical appearance and breed, she love them all.
Poypoy, Tina's son and Bianca her quadriplegic dog
I am sure that having a quadriplegic dog is not easy, some people will just abandon a dog with this condition, or worst they may even euthanize her. But not Tina, she decided to keep Bianca and gave her a chance to live like ordinary dog.

Tina is teaching her children the value of compassion, and she is a good example of a responsible parent. Imagine, she was able to take good care of her children, she was a mom to her dogs and to other creatures in her household, and she is even volunteering some of her time to animal shelters.

Tina deserve to be in my list of "Dog People of the Month" She is indeed an inspiration to all, because of her, I was able to realize that dog lovers should not expect animal shelters to do all the rescue and stuffs, there are times wherein we need to step up, and do things on our own. Animal Shelters will not be able to save all the stray animals, but if all dog lovers will stand as one unit to accomplish a goal, then nothing is impossible.


I have just recently learned that Mandaluyong City have put up their own Animal Shelter, and they also need all the help that they can get, if you are located near Mandaluyong, please be kind enough to visit the dogs and provide some help.
