Live from Kathmandu: More Final Nepal Art Dogs
Live from Kathmandu: Raining Cats and Dogs

Live from Kathmandu: Three-of-a-kind - Which would you choose?

My Kathmandu Kitchen is beginning to fill up with great art.   Which would you choose?

Ruby the German Shepherd and her final three choices by Dilip Niroj, Nara and Baba (clockwise from top left).  

Ruby is as close to a traditional Danger Dog as you can get.   The signs on gates around town that inspired this project most often feature a German Shepherd with a large tongue.  I know the artists enjoyed having such a pretty example such as Ruby to paint.

Mike is handsome and solemn in his 3 final paintings by Baba, Sagar and Nara (clockwiswe from top left).   It is a hard choice as they are all so different and yet each got his great looks.

Toffee, the Beautiful Mongrel (or is it Beautyful?) in her final three by Dilip Niroj, Megh Rah Thapa and Baba (clockwise from top left) is another hard choice.   She is a beauty.  And sweet as Toffee, no doubt.

Dr. Watson is looking smart in his final three portraits by Megh Raj Thapa, Nara and Baba.   This cute black Scottie Dog is a classic beauty.

This beautiful Yorkie has the wind in his hair for these three final portraits by Nara, Baba and Megh Raj Thapa.   

Lastly, we have Roxy the Cheerleader and her three finals (by Jit Gurung, Baba and Dilip Niroj).  It seems she is saying 'Eat 'em up, eat 'em up, Raw! Raw! Raw!'   You may remember Roxy in her cowgirl outfit a few years ago.   What a Danger Dog!

I've told you my Kathmandu Kitchen is full - you are only seeing a small part.    More finals are coming in tomorrow.   Stay tuned.


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, 2012 - 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.
