Waaaaaaah!!! It’s finally out! I’m excited to see the whole issue and to see how the other pictures came out. When Iggy of Pet’s Life asked me to be on the cover of the magazine, I said yes INSTANTLY. Of course I’m glad whenever people feature me as a radio personality because that’s what I do, but it’s also really nice when they feature me, highlighting another facet of my life. Especially close to me is my love for animals. I’ve had my ups and downs with my relationships with many of my animals past and present, and even now I plumb new depths in understanding our animal brethren. So it’s extra nice to be featured on a Pet Magazine, and with my Yorkshire Terrier, Cairo, my favorite dog EVER (it’s the cherry on top!). I consider my dogs my kids, so to have one of them on the cover with me is really a treat.
We did the photoshoot at Bonifacio Global City, around the Burgos Circle area. Cairo was a trooper, cooperating like a pro. He’s really just deficient in attention, so it was hard to find a shot with his head steady. He usually whips his head around with every movement or sound that disrupts his very short attention span. Other than that, Cairo’s the only dog I have that I feel confident lugging around all day. He won’t complain, will do what you ask him to, and will quietly abide by what’s going on around him. He’ll adapt to you, not the other way around. Even the people over at the pet store Dogs and the City were having fun playing ball with him; he gets along with anyone. So the shoot went pretty well, and I’m curious if they put more photos of us inside.
There was also an interview, and I’m doubly curious on the writer’s take on what we talked about. It was a pretty long discussion, so I’m sure it will be whittled down to only what he found relevant. He angled his questions differently from the usual interviews about pets, so I wonder what he took away from our lengthy chat. The whole thing felt like a father-son weekend outing. If I could “like” that day like we do on FB, I’d “like” it a hundred times over. Precious.
Iggy said the magazine will be delivered on Christmas day, so it should be available soon after that. So check out your favorite bookstores, magazine stands and pet stores nationwide for a copy! It’s the 3rd issue (the 1st issue had Doc Ferdz Recio of Born to be Wild and Survivor Phils. and the 2nd had Ashley Gosiengfiao on the cover), and Christmas issue in one, so please get a copy so that the issue with me on the cover doesn’t flop, hahaha! Seriously though, if you’re a pet lover, you might want to check out Pet’s Life magazine! Woohoo!
