Window Shopping in Pokhara
Miscellany from Pokhara

Pokhara Days

The Lakeside Resort of Pokhara is a delight.

This is our rooftop view of the Annapurna Range from our Hotel in Pokhara - the Green Tara. 

Walking along Lake Fewa on the way to breakfast is a treat in itself.

A friendly wasp wanted to share our jam this morning.

It is not hard to find interesting signboard art here in Pokhara.

A typical Nepali 'Beware of Dog' sign.   I am cheating with this one, as it is by Baba and is behind his shop in Kathmandu.

I did find this lovely signboard on the way home from breakfast this morning.  

This is the unlucky dog that is behind the sign above.   He is let out in the evenings, but kept in most of the day.   I wish I could help, but this is a common practice in Nepal.


If you would like to have your dog immortalized on metal here in Nepal, now is the perfect time to order.   I will be here for another 6 weeks ordering portraits. 

This hand-painted art form is fast disappearing in Kathmandu, as it already has in most parts of the world.   I pay fair trade wages, the artists get to paint again, pet lovers get a choice of three paintings for each commission, and I get to help Nepali artists make a living.   Everybody is happy.   Rescue dogs from America get to rescue artists from Nepal!

Now is the time to order:   Be ahead of the Pack!   Orders now accepted for the Summer 2012 trip.



To order, please send me a photo of your pet.   I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of 3 paintings and three artists 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.

While I am in Nepal, your pet will be featured on the Danger Dog Blog, as I stop into the artists' studios and document the works in progress.

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.
