Sanjib has sent along a few more works in progress, sans lettering.

Beignet the Ranch Dog further along

Beignet a lot further along.  She still needs her Danger Dog lettering.

One-eyed Tuxedo Cat art

By request, both Pancake and Larry will have no lettering.   Sanjib did a fine job with both of them.

More  on Saturday.


If you would like to have your dog (cat, horse, chicken, bunny, bearded dragon, etc.) immortalized on metal here in Nepal, you can send me a photo of your pet.   I am now in Kathmandu, Nepal, taking orders.

I will return in early December, 2022, in plenty of time to deliver for holiday gifts.

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

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!


1.  Send me a photo of your pet to [email protected]. Find out more at  

2. Let me know the name of your pet, their breed and what you would like it to say.

I will give the photo 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!

Let's keep these artists painting.
