If you agree, here's an event that you would happily attend! People in Nepal have selected a special day to thank our four-legged friends for their friendship and loyalty.

The celebration lasts for five days. On the second day, people worship their dog by adorning them with flower garlands, offering them delicious foods, and marking them with "tika" on their forehead.


The red powder mark means that the dog is a sacred being, and images of dogs honored in this way are heart-warming.

The royal treatment of dogs is explained by the belief that they're the messengers of Yama, the Hindu god of death, and it is a way to appease the god.
