Live from Kathmandu: More Final Nepal Dog Art!
Final works from Jit Gurung and Shree Lamachhane

Works in Progress from Sagar Bitsa!

Delilah the Boxer by Sagar

Delilah floats in the clouds in this work in progress by Sagar.  Please excuse the blurry photos.  You can see even the borders are blurry!

Carmen the Doberman Pinscher by Sagar

 Carmen the Doberman Pinscher is luminous in her work in progress by Sagar.   Those ears!

Alvin the Yorkie by Sagar

 Alvin the Yorkie by Sagar is adorable with his circular border.  This is a memorial to a beloved dog.

Moxie the Yorkie/Affenpinscher mix

 Moxie is a delightful mixture of Yorkie and Affenpinscher dog.  This is his first portrait.  Again, sorry for the blurry photos, but I was thrilled to receive them.  


I have found that many Nepalis artists have not thrived during Nepal's 3 long lockdown periods.  Like the rest of the world their lives were put on hold.  I cannot imagine that many businesses ordered signs when there were no customers.  

The artists were very happy to get the work!

Please stay tuned for more works in progress to come!

If you would like to have your dog (cat, horse, chicken, bunny, bearded dragon, etc.) immortalized on metal here in Nepal, it is not too late.   I will be back in the US in early May, in time for Mother's Day and Father's Day gifts.

You choose the style, the color, what you would like the sign to say...

You can also check out, as I have over 72 breeds of dog (and counting) and many cats.

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!


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.
