I like driven people.

Those who share the same "rebel" blood as mine.

Rebel in the sense that one day they decide to give up being employed and start something from scratch with the hopes of turning it into something big, hit or miss.

What's more likeable is if that person share the same sentiment as mine towards dogs (animals in general) and comes up with a business (with a very memorable and catchy name) catering to the needs of our furry friends.

I met up with Odyssa (or Ody for short), owner of South Bark, a couple of weeks ago and I must say that it was one for the memory book.

Why? Because first, Ody reminded me of myself back when I started my own business. She's a multi-tasker! You won't believe me if I tell you that she was lugging around a big backpack full of pet food and what-nots (and to think she has a petite frame) when I met up with her. I sensed the hunger, the drive and in true business person's perspective, enough is simply not enough for her. Her shop's doing well by the way but she's aiming for that "good" problem of running out of products due to strong demand. Kaya yan!

Lastly, our meeting led me to the discovery of this product that cured my dog of his camera-shyness. I'm talking about my Japanese Spitz - Ringo. Actually, he's not camera-shy. He's not just camera-ready because of this skin problem that has been pestering him (and I, because he sleeps on my bed)) for the longest time. The cure? This dog food from the ACANA brand.
ACANA Lamb and Okanagan Apple (Hypoallergenic) 340g Php145
After a week of eating this, he (almost) totally stopped from scratching. I also feed him this because he's the hyper one among the bunch:
ACANA Sport and Agility 340g Php145
A couple weeks more and I think I'll be able to post a photo of me and him together. That would be one less dog to pose with. Ember's next!
Sergeant's Barkery Chewy Bites 99g Php200
