Being the youngest in the family, I lived most of my life being the center of attention at home. Weekend activities would depend on what I feel like doing at the moment, the ice cream flavor was always “one color” because I was not open to trying other flavors except ube and mango, and all of my siblings were complied to bring me something whenever they arrive home, whether from school or from an out of town trip. I was always the princess!
Dodo came into our lives in 2006. After so much debate, my mom finally agreed to accept a gift from my dad’s friend: a Pomeranian puppy. Prior to his arrival, my brother and I were already researching for interesting name. Bruce, Schindler, Empress… but at the end of the long list of ‘good looking’ names was “Dodo”.
And the story of the new family addition, the new king of the household, began. Dodo has become such an inspiration that a Tagalog poetry piece and a chapter in my published book were dedicated solely to him.
Dodo is not our only dog, and don’t get me wrong, I love them all equally, but it’s Dodo that has the most human-like personality… look into his eyes and you’ll know what I mean! ♥
