Live from Nepal: Pokhara Puppies!
Back in civilization! Kind of...

Live from Pokhara: Why I love Nepal.

The lakeside resort town of Pokhara is getting ready for their New Year, beginning on April 14 this year. Wednesday the 13th is their New Year's Eve.

This is shot from our rooftop.   The Annapurna Range was out in all its glory last night to welcome us back to town.

The town is all abuzz with everyone in their new clothes in preparation for the new year.   Here Dan tantalizes this cute dog who wants Dan's food.   Nepali dogs like Westerners very much.   We smell different and are generous with handouts!

Lake Fewa is the heart of Pokhara.   Many people are crossing over to the temple a short while across the lake.  

In honor of the New Year holiday, there is a fair, including rides, booths and food courts open at the lakeside.

Sunset from our rooftop at the Green Tara.   Hotels are about $10 per night here and great value.   Clean, bathroom included, beautiful staircases, good food, newspapers in the lobby, free Wi-Fi.   The Green Tara in particular is quiet, off the street, and has lovely views of the mountains, rooftops and birds of Pokhara.  You can even see the lake from here.

Pokhara is lovely from every angle.   Colorful boats line the lakeside in Pokhara.

The water buffalos seem to like the Franzia Wine boxes!

This is one odd mannequin!   It did catch my eye, however.   My artist, Shree, who is soon off to Korea, studied with a school in Kathmandu.

You will be happy you did!

Now is the time to order:   Be ahead of the Pack!

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.

American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.
