10/24/2003: Dog worship day



Today is dog worship day in Nepal. From a description of Nepalese festivals:

Quote:
The second day is called 'Kukur tihar', dogs day. A dog plays many roles in our society. We have dogs in our houses as guardian of the house. As the legend also says that there is a dog at yama's gate guarding the gate to the underworld. The dog is also the steed of the fearful Bhairab, the god of destruction. So on this day a big red tika is put on a dog's forehead and a beautiful garland around the neck. After worshipping the dog, it is given very delicious meal. This day the saying 'every dog has his day' comes true; for even a stray dog is looked upon with respect. We pray to the dog to guard our house as he guards the gate of the underworld and to divert destruction away from our homes. On this day you can see dogs running around with garlands on their neck.
Happy kukur tihar. Give your dogs a delicious meal today.

Wow, today is also my dog's 4th birthday. I'll have to give her a big bone after dinner! We named her Vesta after the Roman goddess of the household as that pretty much decribes her. Here is what she looked like when I brought her home:

Every day at our house is some sort of Dog holiday...just try telling our mutt any different.

We have *spoiled* animals.

chrisinhouston, that pic is so cute it almost hurts to look at it.

I wish my older dog could be here today - he passed away two weeks ago

I think my younger surviving dog will be very jealous that we do not have such a holiday.

Here's my dog...

Great picture Scop. He appears to be a Fred Astaire/Gene Kelly incarnate. I say he because if the pup was female, she'd be doing that backwards in high heels.
