Masayang ikinuwento ni Direk Joey Reyes ang kanyang mga bagong adopted dogs from PAWS: "I remember when I was smaller; I remember we had askals, so I decided to adopt two [from PAWS], James and Phil. Because they are askals and I love the Azkals, and I love the Volcanoes, I just...I named them James and Phil."

"You know, I like their slogan that there is 'beauty beyond breeds,' di ba?

"Because if you're going to judge uhm... a living, a living creature, which is capable of giving you love, based only on its breed, then that is so prejudicial, di ba?"

"May shooting kami, medyo lang nagkaroon ng aberya, because we have to pack up because of the storm.

"But otherwise, we are proceeding according to schedule."

Kumusta naman ang working experience niya with Juday and Ryan again?

"A, we have known each other for quite some time, hindi ba?

"Like in this movie that we're doing together, a... it's not really any problem.

"Plus the fact na from Kasal Kasali Kasalo, up to now that we're doing My House Husband, a lot of changes have taken place.

"I met them when they were still magnobyo-magnobya, now they're parents, okay...
