A Cafe for Enjoying Coffee, Pastries and... PUPPIES!

"Puppies are nature's remedy for feeling unloved, plus numerous other ailments of life." - Richard Allan Palm.

I don't know what it is about puppies but their presence just makes everything a lot better. Like if you're going through something, seeing a puppy walk towards you with its tail wagging just brings so much joy that it melts away any negative thoughts in your mind. This is, perhaps, one of the reasons why dog cafes have become a successful trend throughout the world. In both Japan and Korea, there are a number of dog cafes available to choose from. Slowly but surely, Cebu City has started to pick up with this trend with the newest cafe in town: Lovey Doggy Dog Cafe.

The cafe is currently on its third day of operations and is under soft opening so there are still a number of things they are getting accustomed to. When we heard they were open, we wasted no time to head over and enjoy our time with the puppies.

Some cakes and pastries

Entering the cafe, we were surprised to see how spacious it was inside. The cafe was set up in a two-storey space with its puppy playpen on the ground floor. The top portion was built like an outdoor patio, complete with fake grass and lounge chairs-- there was even a swing love seat. Apart from a place for dining, I think the second floor area is where you can bring your dog with you.

 So here's what you need to know when visiting Lovey Doggy Cafe:

Lovey Doggy Rules for playing with the dogs:

These rules are implemented for the welfare of the dogs. If a puppy gets injured, you will be responsible for veterinary care costs.

Reminders for dog parents bringing in their dogs:
Since Lovey Doggy allows outside dogs to enter the cafe as well as the playpen, they also have to follow these rules:
The cafe also offers daycare and overnight services so be sure to ask if you need it.

Meet the Dogs

On our visit, we were able to spot a Corgi, a couple of Pugs, a Boston Terrier, a very tired Husky, a Pomeranian, and a Bull Terrier-ish dog. There was also a little princess that I liked a lot but I couldn't identify what breed she was. If you guys spot her, she's the white fluffy princess that will greet you when you enter. If I'm not mistaken, she's the one called Miyu.

Apart from these dogs, there are also other ones that Lovey Doggy has in store for patrons:

I hope there's a better way to identify these dogs. The board wasn't complete with their names yet and I'm hoping they would put a little name tag or ID on each dog... that would be so cute!

I'm excited to see more of these dogs in our next visit. Maybe we'll bring our little monster in soon :)
