Our family deserves only the best and that includes the furry members of our family.
Bow House, the country’s pioneer in “modern barkitecture” launched its #AmbassadogPH campaign in July 2015 in search of the cutest pooch to dwell on their renowned “Muttress” (a luxurious dog bed made from premium fabrics), “Bowsket” (a dog bed in a metal basket, specifically designed for man’s best friend) and the “Dome Home”—an ultra modern crate for your furry playmate which doesn’t look like a prison.
Out of nearly 500 submissions on Facebook and Instagram, Bow House chose 16 Ambassadogs. Each Ambassadog got to take home their very own Muttress courtesy of Bow House. They were also invited for a photo shoot with fashion photographer Lyka Orhel.
The first batch of Ambassadogs had their fun and furry photos to showcase their “fursonality” and Bow House products last Saturday, August 22, at Makati City’s up-and-coming co-working hub, The Office Project.
Here are seven of Bow House PH’s Ambassadogs:
Ambassadogs: Lupi and Nori
Breed: French Bulldog
Human: Sam Potenciano
Lupi and Nori are playful bursts of energy. One-year-old Lupi and her brother 7-month-old Nori are both friendly and curious. They enjoyed roaming around The Office Project and meeting new furry friends.
Are you pretending to hold my treat again to make me smile? 😅😬😔🙏🏽🍬🍬🍬 #loganthewelsh #loganinthecity #ambassadogph #bowhouseph A photo posted by Logan the Welsh (@loganthewelsh) on
Breed: Welsh Corgi
Human: Ruth Cariño
Like what his human told this writer, 10-month-old Logan has a dominant fursonality. But when it comes to his humans, he’s a sweet travel buddy. Logan loves tagging along with his human’s surf escapades.
Breed: Chow Chow
Human: Bea Lozano
Everybody in The Office Project immediately fell in love with two-year-old Chowder the second he walked in. He looks exactly like a cinnamon-colored teddy bear, except he walks around a lot and he’s more huggable. According to his human, Chowder thinks he’s human, too!
It’s my advance birthdaaay celebration tomorrow!!! #2 💛 A photo posted by Mr. Phineas Paddington (@mrphineasp) on
Human: Lyka Orhel
Finn may be tiny but his fursonality is huge! At first, he was a scared little pup, but when he got the hang of the photo shoot, Finn started strutting his stuff.
Breed: Parson Russell Terrier
Human: Sarie Cruz
You may recognize Peggy from a TV commercial where she hurriedly ran home to Nanay’s home- cooked tinola. Yep, Peggy’s a celebrity and she has two commercials under her belt. She was so well behaved during the shoot, she didn’t give the staff a hard time. What a professional!
Feeling #hipster chic with this #muttress design from Bow House! 🐩 Hey, doggies! Want more designs that fit your FURsonality? 🐶 Catch them at @bowhouse.ph 💛💙❤️ #BowHousePH #Ambassadog A photo posted by Alba the Samoyed (@albathesammy) on
Human: Mark Ong
Alba is another professional during the Ambassadog photo shoot. According to her human, she’s been trained to pose for photos (even with props!) since she was a small puppy. Whether she’s rocking her Russian grandma look with a silk scarf or donning her glasses for a professorial look or simply being herself, Alba can steal anybody’s heart. Her human describes her as his “little princess” and it’s easy to see why. Don’t forget to greet her this October when she turns two years old!
About Bow House PH
Bow House is the brainchild of Migi Manalastas, a dog lover and serial entrepreneur. He started designing dog beds as an experiment, but as more family and friends got interested in his creations, he realized its powerful business potential. He then launched Bow House in December 2014.
Bow House’s philosophy is simple: “We love dogs as much as we love good design.” According to them, dog crates and pet beds need not be an eyesore. Bow House’s goal is to bring “modern barkitecture” to the forefront and make pet furniture the centerpiece of every pet owner’s home.
