This festival is for the dogs–in the best possible way.

Last week, the people of Nepal celebrated Tihar, a five-day festival dedicated to the worship of Gods and animals and the celebration of togetherness.

Day two, known as Kukar Tihar, is dedicated to the celebration of dogs, who are adorned in garlands and fed only the best food.


In the Hindu religion, dogs are considered to be messengers, and are revered specifically for their loyalty and friendship in their relationship with man.

Nepal is having a festival where dogs are honoured for their special friendship wid humans! :)#KukurTihar ^_^China, watch n learn!! #YulinDogMeatEatingFestivalShouldBeStopped !!:) :)
