Photos of a dog carrying hollow blocks in its mouth have gone viral, with netizens sharing their fears of getting bitten by such a fierce-looking dog. But it sure does look cute, huh?
Dog Goes Viral for Carrying Hollow Blocks
A lot of people fear dogs because these animals could bite them, especially the breeds that are known to be fierce. Many owners feel safer in homes with these kinds of dogs, particularly if these are just free to roam around the yard.
But one dog recently went viral after its owner shared photos of it carrying hollow blocks while appearing to be patrolling from the balcony.
Juneth Bognot reposted the pictures on Facebook group DOG LOVERS PHILIPPINES with the funny caption:
Bisita: “Nangangagat ba yang aso niyo?”
Ako: “Hindi. Nambabato lang.”
Netizens had a good laugh over the photos, saying that they are sure to avoid such a house if a dog like this is standing guard – and most especially one that carries a hollow blocks on patrol!
“Kung ganyan makita ko sa daan. Baka hahanap na lng ako ng ibang daan lol,” one netizen commented.
“Pakipost po ang address nyo para iwasan na po ng sambayanang Filipino 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Hello there babies… you are still cute and adorable despite of hollow blocks. 😍” another joked.
“Lagot ang mga magnanakaw o akyat-bahay, may bantay na kayang-kayang mangagat ng buong buto o kaya naman hulugan lang ng hollow blocks,” another pointed out.
Others were concerned over the dog, especially because the hollow blocks might hurt its mouth.
“Bakit ganoon? Paano nasubo ng aso yung ganiyang kalaking hollow blocks? Baka naman gutom na gutom yung aso at hindi napapakain hahaha. O baka naman ang tingin niya sa hollow blocks ay malaking-malaking buto kasi halos pareho ng kulay at parehong matigas,” one netizen commented.
Indeed, dogs are man’s best friends and they also make the best guards at home! But we just hope this dog is alright and that no person will be hit by that big chunk of hollow blocks. Ouch.
What are Hollow Blocks?
A hollow block is a type of concrete block used in construction to make boundary fences, walls, and other structures that use cement for building. Hollow concrete block saves time in building walls due to its large dimensions but also saves money due to the reduced volume of concrete needed to build the structure.

They were shocked to discover that many jewelry pieces were already missing from the safe! An inventory showed that many items were missing that the DH took from May 2018 to August 2019.

When the theft was discovered, Nones’ sister Marina G. Biala handed a bag to Mrs. Liang on September 5, 2019, saying that her sister made her keep it. The said bag contained the following:

- 11 pairs of earrings
- 1 piece of earring
- 11 pendants
- 5 rings
- 1 brooch
- 3 watches

Lavish Lifestyle, Pleading Guilty
Upon investigation, the court discovered that Nones lived a lavish lifestyle in the Philippines. She owned at least two grand mansions and several vehicles in her hometown.
She pleaded guilty to all counts of theft. Her cousin Cristina N. Alagna and niece Maricris G. Nones also pleaded guilty to acting as her accomplices. Nones reportedly gave them the items

Although also accused in the case, Biala pleads not guilty.
OFW in Saudi Arabia Reportedly Loses Sanity, But No One Knows the Reason
An OFW reportedly lost his sanity and ran to the highway, chased and protected by his friends and co-workers. It’s a good thing there were no cars at the time or he could have been hit in his daze.
OFW Reportedly Lost His Sanity for Unknown Reasons
The family and co-workers of Lester Domasin are stumped over the reasons why he appears to have lost his sanity all of a sudden.
They have no idea what the young man is going through because he doesn’t talk about his problems or worries with them.
Lester has been working as a tea boy at the Tree House Café in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for nearly 2 years. According to his mother, Novelita Domasin, her son is kind and would regularly send them money from his salary. But they have no idea if he is facing any problems.
Lester’s sister Christine Domasin and his friend Junrey Villasotto also said the same thing.
According to Junrey, they saw signs that Lester seems to be having some mental issues. But they know that he’s not being maltreated or overworked at the company because he only goes on duty for the usual 8-hour shift.
They tried telling their higher-ups about Lester’s situation when it started, but they were told that Lester is alright and doesn’t seem to be a danger to others. But Junrey and their other co-workers had to chase after Lester when their dazed friend just wandered to the highway.
According to Junrey, they already informed their recruitment agency, International Recruitment Company, about Lester’s situation. Thankfully, he is now under medication and his agency is already processing his exit visa.
Raffy Tulfo promised assistance for Lester and his family. Watch the story here:

Manila Bay Looks Like Boracay in This ‘Dolomite Update’ Video by a Vlogger
A portion of the Manila Bay now looks like Boracay in a video made by a vlogger to update people about the controversial dolomite sand ‘dumped’ on that spot.
Manila Bay Looks Like Boracay
A lot of people have so many bad things to say about the dolomite placed at the Manila Bay, with clamors to divert the funds for other useful things such as vaccines and food for the poor.
Others are saying that the dolomite ‘dumped’ on that spot is useless and does nothing to make the place look any good.
But a video update by vlogger Junriel Llander shows that these naysayers are wrong. Yes, this dolomite project might be expensive but it has made the place look great!
Gone are the trash that used to cover this area. The usually murky waters and the dirty sand have been transformed into a piece of paradise that you could only see in areas with white sand beaches, such as the world-famous Boracay Island.
On May 24, 2021, Llander went to the spot with the dolomite sand to take a video of what’s happening at this area. There were a number of workers at Phase 1 Beach Front, all busy with keeping this place looking great.
Though the heavy equipment and the busy thoroughfare at the background betray the location, this place still managed to look like a slice of Boracay from some angles.
Llander credits the development to the ‘probinsyano’ president, Pres. Rodrigo Duterte who was able to make this place look beautiful.
No matter how bashers might say bad things about this spot, those who have actually gone to the area are saying that this spot at the Manila Bay certainly looks so much better than the dirty, grimy, garbage-filled dump it used to be!

Dolomite is a type of ornamental limestone rich in magnesium and calcium carbonate. Because of its white color, crushed dolomite could be mistaken for white sand. The sands at the beaches all over the world are mostly made up of quartz and feldspar.
