The Pedigree Paw Pledge registration was a success. Treats and samples were given away and professional photographers took pictures of the dogs so that they can be popular and buyers of the photo and its proceeds will be donated to the victims of #yolandaPH.
The press interviewed Dr. Lanie Acero of Pedigree and Jude Torcuato Head of Fox Phils / NGC Phils. As they answer the question about the product (Pedigree) and the coverage of the event and when it will be available for viewing. Other related questions spout as the interview peaks.
The event was a great success for both owners, dog breeds, organizers and it's partners. It definitely became a hit as the stars of the event (the dogs) experienced the ultimate pampering, taste of the Pedigree products and exercise under the sun.
I would say it's definitely a dogs day here at Pedigree. – John Bautista
