Celebrate Your Pet’s Birthday with a Doggie Cake from Whole Pet Kitchen
When in Manila, treat your bestest friend to something special for his/her birthday by getting them a doggie cake from Whole Pet Kitchen! Here’s my story on my best friend, Booboo, and how I got him a cake for his 3rd birthday.
I remember clearly the day I brought home Booboo. It was January 17, 2011. He was two months old, and was the chubbiest among a litter of five in this small pet shop in Tiendesitas. Pacquiao Pet Shop, to be exact. Of the five puppies that came rushing towards the cage door to catch my attention, Booboo was the only one who stayed in one corner—quiet and shy, but with hopeful eyes looking straight at me.
I knew then that he was the one.
Since that day, life has never been the same.
The day I brought home Booboo. It was my dad who named him because he thought he looked like Yogi’s sidekick.
We do everything together. Everyday whenever my parents dropped me off at school, he would be there. And whenever I got fetched, he’d be there again. We loved going to parks—he didn’t even need a leash because everywhere I went, he just followed. Eastwood and High Street were instantly our favorite places, and it became even merrier when Sushi and Sookie (my cousins’ Shih Tzus) joined the family. He converted my obsessive compulsive mom into a pet lover. He became my dad’s companion whenever he took walks. Whenever my brother was stressed out with school, he’d put Booboo on his lap and continue studying.

I think it’s safe to say that Booboo really changed all our lives.
This was Booboo’s first birthday at home. It was a cake for us humans though. Not something that I wanted to feed him at all.
His second birthday, we weren’t able to get him a cake but we still celebrated anyway. And just a couple of weeks after his second birthday, a friend introduced me to Whole Pet Kitchen.
