Trying to be ever helpful, I did some research and have solved your problem:
Now all I have to figure out is how to move the pool haahaa
The pool structure is a cinch - use rollers. I am still thinking about how best to move the water - that one beats me.
I imagine the looks I get towing the pool down the highway full of bikini models splashing around
Some months ago there was a news items that tricycles were prohibited were prohibited on ALL national highways which to me was good news but it was short lived because historically, similar bans were never enforced. Tricycles more than anything else dictate the very slow flow of traffic in Dumaguete. Bisaya (Cebuano) IS an official language in the Philippines, having as many or more native speakers as Tagalog. And Cebuano is a language selection in Google translate.

You can take your dogs on trikes and jeepneys, if not get a cage and treat it as cargo. Large items are regularly strapped to the top of jeepneys or under buses. They can usually also be delivered for a fee. There are options...you just don't like them.
Diving without a horn in the Philippines is almost suicidal. I use mine all the time and won't ride that bike/vehicle if it isn't working. Quick double horn tap is almost universally used in the Philippines to mean, "I'm coming up on you, don't do something stupid."
3 or more quick honks usually means, "I'm driving fast and in a hurry. Don't do something stupid."
A long horn honk either means, "f*ck you" or, "prepare for a collision".
Horn honks are a courtesy to dumdums with p*ss poor driving skills. It lets these idiots know someone is coming up on them.
A rather weird way of driving the way you are describing it at least for Dumaguete. Yes, in Manila they blow the horns all the time. Guess must be the stress of all these traffic jams. Here in Dumaguete the drivers use their car horns rather rarely. Now your comment really makes me thinking what kind of driver you are:
"A long horn honk either means, "f*ck you" or, "prepare for a collision"." Do you really think it works like this here ? No it does not. No need to do long horn honks, just accept the bigger and more agressive vehicle wins. If you want you to compete with these mad drivers up to you. Your f*ck you wont help in a such situation. Do I like this traffic behaviour the Filipinos ? Not really, but I just try to adapt. Without the f.........

Trikes don't belong on the highway IMHO, their constant pick up and drop off passengers stop the traffic and make a lot of dangerous situations. A modernization of the public transport system is much needed, will it happen it the next decade? I don't think so. I love driving my small bike and not so much the car, it's a shopping cart and can bring my dog, he likes excursions. Recently been in Bacolod on the bike, bigger city compared to Dumaguete so no surprise worse traffic and driving habits. Last month in Manila take a habal habal to my hotel 10 km away, faster in the heavy traffic, that's not for everyone, they drive worse than me, that says a lot, in and out between cars. I use my horn a lot, and on the bike, I use my deep voice at the same time with a lot of F#*k words. A Filipino told me to honk with the horn means happy happy . I don't like the traffic here but of course, I accept it. 2 days ago 2 guys on a bike first stop when the guy in the front nodding his head in the back of my car, it's was on the south Highway heading towards Dumaguete at the French bakery and fruit market, I stopped, but the slipped in a hurry on a small path beside the church there, fine to me, because the traffic here is closely connected to the 2 other things I really hate here but need to accept if I want to live here, but same time I do all to avoid it, it's the healthcare and the justice system, both are a big joke seen from my point of view. My next step will be a helicopter on the roof deck. Merry Christmas Everyone!
I for one am getting a louder horn installed... been driving here 4 years and yes a horn is essential... you must make your presence known or you will be ignored ...
oh really... years driving here speak for themselves
