Live from Kathmandu: Final Danger Dogs

There are too many Danger Dogs (and Cats) to count in my room. Here are more of the latest:

Hamish the Shitzu in two of his final portraits (by Baba and Nara) looks cute with his mohawk and bright eyes.

Toffee is a beautiful mongrel indeed.   Here Toffee is painted by Baba and Dilip.   Again, there is one more to come.

Aesop the Jack Russell is commanding in his final portraits by Baba and Sagar.   I love his direct gaze in these.


Here is Aesop (by Sufraj Khadka) waiting to dry in the sun amid some illustrious company.

Mookie positively glows in his portraits by Baba and Santosh.   I should see his portrait by Indra Lama coming tomorrow.   Can't wait!

Fiona is a beautiful Terrier Mix, here in her final portrait by Baba.   Again, I should see another one tomorrow.

Domino the Pit Bull (here by Baba) is truly a Hero Dog as he saved his young mistress from a fire by barking and scratching at her door, refusing to leave until she awoke and got to safety.

Cecil the Boston Terrier in two finals (from Jit Gurung and Baba) could not be more different in his sepia tones.

If you would like to have your dog (cat, horse, chicken , bunny, etc.) immortalized on metal here in Nepal, now is the perfect time to order.   I will be here for another 3 weeks ordering portraits. 

Deadline for new submissions is September 19th - fast approaching.   So do not delay.

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 Autumn 2012 trip.



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