PSA: There Is a Nepalese Festival Dedicated To Thanking Dogs For Their Loyalty and Friendship
We cannot think of anything more worthy
Every day is Kukur Tihar in our house.
Dog worship is something we like to practice regularly - but in Nepal there is an actual festival dedicated solely to celebrating the friendship and loyalty of our furry friends.
*Excuse us while we WEEP at the thought.*
"Kukur Tihar" or "Day of the Dog" falls on November 6 this year and is part of the Hindu celebration Diwali - the celebration of human relationships with all things.
Kukur Tihar is the second day of Diwali in Nepal, and sees Nepalese dogs - both with homes and without - thanked for their loyalty and friendship.
A red mark (Tika) is placed on their foreheads as a sign of sacredness and the dogs are decorated with flowers and garlands.
Please enjoy a series of photos from this magical day.
We cannot think of a more worthy cause.
