New Finals: Cats from Sagar Bitsa

Sagar is at it again, delivering beautiful portraits of pets.  These photos are taken by the artist and have a bit of a glare, but they look great to me.


Rico the Perfect Tabby by Sagar

First up is Rico, a perfect cat.  Sagar gave him a golden sky with birds flying through the moon (sun?).   I am always surprised and pleased by his work.

Rosie the Ginger Cat by Sagar


Rosie the Ginger Cat is lucky indeed.  She looks good at a slight tilt.

Iris the lucky Black Cat by Sagar Bitsa


Iris, with the pretty green eyes, is a lovely black kitty.  I am going to talk to Sagar about the drips on the Nepali word Birallo (cat), easily fixed.

Nalu & Treasure by Sagar Bitsa

Nalu and Treasure are a pair of good friends, composited from 2 photos by Sagar.  Nalu has the honor of being the only dog to be commissioned this trip.  There are cats, there are roosters, there is even a frog!   The Nepali word beneath the two is Katarna (Danger in Nepalese).

Beware of Cock by Sagar

Beware of Cock is always a popular theme with the Danger Dog project.  This is a charming example by Sagar, and more to come!

Beware of Cock by Sagar

Anyone with roosters knows that during a full moon, they will sometimes crow in the middle of the night.   Not unlike other cocks.

More to come soon.


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 deliver in early May 2023, in plenty of time to deliver for Mother's Day, Father's Day and Grads.

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.
