Live from Kathmandu - An Amourous Bull & Other Animals

While wandering the back streets of Boudha, I came across a young bull licking a motorcycle seat. 

Turns out it was foreplay!   Many people stopped and laughed, but I never saw the owner of the bike.   Soon after this photo was taken, the horny young stud started bellowing.

This young Lhasa Apso is named Diki.  He (she?) was thorougly ensconces on his owner's lap, but quickly jumped off to bark at a passing dog.

This Lhasa Apso guards his turf, while his companion Springer Spaniel calmly watches.     Dogs are a big part of daily life here. 

These rather large monkeys perch outside our guest house garden.   They appear to be watching the action in a nearby soccer field.

If you look closely, you can see an owl nesting in the eaves of this lovely old tradional Nepali home.

A couple of puppies wiggled under a fence and into Dan's arms outside a new restaurant we passed by.

The beautiful Bodilee surveys her domain from on top of the compost pile.

Jackie, Bodilee's paramour, is a Nepali hunting dog.

On the political front, there are still protests occurring almost daily of one sort or another.   Most are peaceful.   I was told that these people are Christians, but many wore the red tikka on their foreheads.  

And as I began this post, there was a crowd gathering outside to hear the President of Nepal, Dr. Ram Baran Yadav, speak on behalf of peace in the world and hope for the Japanese people in their time of trouble.   This photo was taken from the window of the Cyber Cafe where I am now typing.  

This is Ozzie, by Sagar.   This is an example of the great portraits that you can order of your pet while I am here in Nepal.   More info below.

I am back in Nepal for the 9th Danger Dog trip and am accepting commissions now.   I'll be back to the states in early June, just in time for Father's Day presents.  


To order, please send me a photo of your pet.   I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of paintings and three people will get work.   Each painting is about one square foot and is on metal with synthetic enamel paint.   These can be hung indoors or out, be framed or unframed.

Satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front.   If you do not like one of the three, you pay nothing, and the 3 artists are paid in full in any case.   Let me know what you want it to say and that's it!

Send your photo to or find out more at

Let's keep these artists painting.
