Pets in Flower Costume Contest at SM City Batangas

A total of twelve contestants participated on the “Pets In Flower Costume Contest” by SM City- Batangas last May 30, 2011.

Eleven cuddly dogs and a charming rabbit were definitely the stars of the event as they ramped with colorful flowers adorning their bodies and stood tall above a pedestal which highlighted all of it . The cute pets’ names are: Shyder, Jaja, Cola, Ginger, Noah, Akiro, Prixie, Bugs (rabbit), Gucci, PomPom, Shifty and Quickie.

With their names alone, one could definitely say that they have proud and loving owners.

Ginger, A Sharpei, Copped Second Honors

Darlene Tolentino, owner of Cola, a six month old shih tzu, bagged the top prize. The 25 year old Darlene, who is also a native of Sta. Rita, Batangas, is very much excited and told me that a good fraction of the winnings will be spent in treating her friends and of course, her most precious dog, for a good time.

Cola was like a cute little sunflower atop a mobile cart ala carosa which is also in congruence with the floral theme. She also stood tall and wore the floral costume with all the comfort in the world. Also, the fact that Darlene brought the whole family with her didn’t hurt as 20% of the criteria for judging belong to the audience impact.

The rest of the criteria are as follow:  Adherence to the theme: 30%; Creativity: 30%; Projection and Style: 20%.

The judges were yours truly, Ms. Zenny del Carmen of Flare Infinity Productions, and Mr. Eric Orolfo.

A shihtzu named Prixie is the event's third placer.

Prizes given were 5,000; 3,000 and 2,000 pesos worth of SM Gift Certificates to the First, Second and Third placers respectively. A special award—the Most FB likes picture award is still in the process.  The most number of Facebook likes shall be the winner in this category. The pictures that are to be fb- liked shall be posted on the official SM City Batangas Facebook fanpage.  Just click on and support who you think is the cutest of them all.

And I say congratulations to Ms. Darlene, her family and to all the pet lovers out there! May your beloved pets eternally feel the warmth and the belongingness!
