TOOTSIE ROLL (A DOG’S LIFE)


TOOTSIE ROLL ( A DOG’S LIFE). Illustration by JERICATURES

naku! alas siyete na pala at ako ay uuwi na sa aking haybol
sa Maynila! doon sa lugar ng maralita at gusto mong sumama ‘tol?
kung tawagin ko siya’y “Eskinita Acapella” O eh bakit nga ba?
“banal na aso, santong kabayo, natatawa ako” iyan ang kanta


sa kanto! dito nakatira si tandang Damaso’t isang huklubang tuso
ang bahay sanglaan at nagpapautang ng 5-­6 at sobrang magpatubo
hindi ka basta makalapit sa bahay at gwardiyado’t ang bagsik ni Lucio!
mabangis! “aw aw” at laging nanggagalaiti sa mga nagdadaang tao

“214” ang numero ng bahay at “hi!hi!hi!” Uy! diyan nakatira ang dati kong nobya
ipinagpalit ako kay Bambu Manyak! akala ko pa naman ay siya na
lagi ko silang nakikitang naghaharutan sa kalye’t hindi ang katulad ko
isa akong maginoo gaya ni dikong Berting at pahalik-­halik lang sa ulo


“hi Krissy, musta na?”
siya ang aking maarteng kaibigan at tingnan mo
siya’y laging may hawak na salamin at ang buhok ay puno ng dilaw na laso
may lahi silang Intsik at ang kanyang butihing ina’y lagalag dati sa Edsa
“tama na, sobra na” at hindi sila kumakain ng galunggong! Uy! pasosyal ba?


ano ba Aga, JC! “aw aw” huwag kayong maghabulan at nakakabunggo kayo
sila ang mga bagets at teka si Herbie at Krissy ay naglalampungan O ang libido!
akala ko kasi’y wala na sila’t talaga naman ang buhay din ng mga pulitiko
sa umpisa’y parang asukal at sa huli ay magdildil sa asin “yo soy no tonto!”


nadidinig mo ba ang tawanan “ha!ha!ha!” dadaan tayo sa mga nag-­iinuman
ang pamilya Lapid at ang gang! O Valiente! hindi tayo pwede kahit pulutan
kaldereta sa mesa? huwag mong pansinin kahit masama silang tumingin
yumuko ka lamang habang dumadaan at sila ay may amats! O tagay pa ng gin

ssshhh! kawawang Tado’t kahapon lamang at kami ay nagkukuwentuhan
kasi siya ay maligalig at kinagabihan ay naging biktima siya ng “hit and run”
mahilig siyang maglakbay at ngayon nga’y parang siya ay pinaglalamayan
umiiyak si Bingo! at ang kanilang bahay ay parang casino o isang pasugalan

“777” ito ang huling numero ng bahay sa dulo at iwas sa tetano’t magugulat ka
sa loob ay mga naglalakihang imahen ng Mahal na Birhen O sinasamba kaya nila?
nasaan kaya si Sanchez at sagpangin ko siya’t matagal na akong walang balita
kriminal! dapat siyang magdusa’t panay hawi ko sa bangs “h!ihi!hi” at kay haba!


“King ikaw na ba yan King?” Uy! si Nanay Perla’t siya ang nakapulot sa akin
isa siyang bulag at 13 taon na ang nakaraan at ako’y kanyang anak kung ituring
madami kaming alaga niya’t sa umaga kami’y namamalimos sa kalsada
“Nanay Perla, mayroon po akong pancit molo’t bigay ni Betchay isang kusinera.”

Valiente “aw aw” O ito ang aming haybol at slumdog ang tawag sa munisipyo
“King, basang-­basa ka ba ng pawis? baka ikaw ay magkasakit halika rito”
sabay himas sa aking balahibo at ang aking buntot ay nagkakakawag, Uy, totoo?
natatawa ako “hi!hi!hi!” halika Valiente at sa lupa ay magpagulung-­gulong tayo


prrt­prrt!ang mga alaga ko’y walang bahag ang buntot at sila ay nagtatatalon sa akin
“aw aw” ako ay kanilang dinidilaan at natatawa ako “hi!hi!hi!” at para kaming Sapin­-Sapin
isa­-isa lang at mahina ang kalaban “aw aw” O heto’t pagsaluhan natin ang buto­-buto
matalik kong kaibigan ang mga aso’t gayang ­gaya ko sila, ano’ng akala nyo?
hindi siguro!

Merry Christmas from Potot, Tiguwang and Betchay!!!

POTOT🤎TIGUWANG 🤎BETCHAY🤎 IT’S NOT WHAT WE HAVE IN LIFE BUT WHO WE HAVE IN OUR LIVES THAT MATTERS. Potot, Tiguwang and Betchay are the rescued dogs at Furry Tails Hinundayan. DEAR ALL, PILYA BLOG MAGAZINE and Furry Tails Hinundayan, an ANIMAL RESCUE SHELTER located in Hinundayan Eastern Visayas, Philippines are calling your attention to support and help these poor dogs in CASH OR IN KIND. As of now, there are 156 rescued dogs in the shelter according to its owner and care taker, Donnabel Guinto.

“Hello, everyone! My name is Donnabel Guinto, Owner of the struggling dog shelter in Hinundayan Southern Leyte, Philippines, the “Furry Tails, Hinundayan”. Please do support us in our advocacy in “saving lives of the needy strays”. We really need help for their daily foods, medicines and other needs. We run the shelter privately. Me, my husband and one caretaker are only doing the tasks and managing the shelter at the same time. We just built the shelter on the end of January this year in response to “Anti-Rabies Act”, the Department of Agriculture announced that they will start capturing strays. We panicked because we used to feed strays for 7 years! But finally, our strays are in the shelter already, captured and rescued by us. We also rescued the unclaimed dogs from the municipal pound. As of now, no dogs have been euthanized yet. As of now, we have already 156 dogs and still rescuing more. Hopefully, all dog lovers out there, the readers, followers and supporters of Pilya Blog Magazine can help and support us. Please donate to this very worthy cause! MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!
