Dear MEL Topic Readers

Nepalese festival celebrates ‘day of the dogs’

When people celebrate a festival, should dogs be part of the festive occasion? In Nepal, they take part in the five-day Nepalese Hindu festival of Tihar. The second day of the festival is a designated day for dogs. Pet dogs are celebrated and blessed with a red mark called Tika, applied to their forehead and given flowers garlands whether they like them or not. They are also treated with a special food they like, such as milk, meat or eggs. Some people say just a day of special treatment is not enough for their beloved partners, but dogs look quite happy to get special attention from people. 

Because of the religious nature of the festival, the treatment is not limited to pet dogs but is offered to non-pet dogs and cats. They may wish that the festival takes place not just annually but weekly or even daily.

Enjoy reading and seeing the photos of happy dogs in Nepal.
