There is an entire day during a festival in Nepal that is entirely dedicated to dogs. It’s called the Kukur Tihar or Kukur Puja where Hindu citizens celebrate man’s loyal best friend. On this day, the dogs are spoiled with love and attention to thank them for their loyalty and friendship.
This is the type of festival that people would like go to, can someone please send China the memo?
We also recently reported on a different kind of dog festival in China called Yulin festival, where more than 10,000 dogs are tortured and cooked before being served to festival goers. However, a 65-year-old retired teacher paid more than a $1000 to save 100 dogs that she now house at her animal shelter.
It is called Kukur Tihar or Kukur Puja (worship of the dogs).
People offer garlands, tika, and delicious food to dogs, and acknowledge the cherished relationship between humans and dogs.

From my sweet wife, Kimberly Maclean:
A octogenarian is walking down the street, when he sees a sign: “Job Vacancy!”. He wouldn’t mind filling his days gainfully and strolls in and tells the HR person that he is interested in the position. The Human Rubbish person tells him that this implies knowledge of high-tech and is really fast paced. The man says to test him and lo and behold he aces the first test. And the second and… heck, all of them!
The Human Rubbish person thinks this very strange and decides to throw him a curve ball. He tells the old man that he is required to test his sperm count and hands him a container. The man says: “What in the blazes do you need my sperm count for???” The dude tells him it’s on the list and that’s that! Our ace asks if he can bring the container back in the morning and is given permission to do so.
The next morning the elderly gentleman comes in and puts the ’empty’ container on the HR person’s desk. The guy says: “Hunhh!???” Well, says the ace, I tried with my left hand, I tried with my right hand. Then my Missus tried with her teeth in and then she tried with her teeth out… But we still couldn’t open the container!
From Cynthia Adams:
When Gandhi was studying law at the University College, London, a white professor, whose last name was Peters, disliked him intensely.
One day, Mr. Peters was having lunch at the dining room when Gandhi came along with his tray and sat next to the professor. The professor said, “Mr Gandhi, you do not understand. A pig and a bird do not sit together to eat.” Gandhi looked at him as a parent would a rude child and calmly replied, “You do not worry professor. I’ll fly away,” and he went and sat at another table. Mr. Peters, reddened with rage, decided to take revenge.
The next day in Class he posed the following question: “Mr Gandhi, if you were walking down the street and found a package, and within was a bag of wisdom and another bag with money, which one would you take?” Without hesitating, Gandhi responded, “The one with the money, of course.” Mr. Peters , smiling sarcastically said, “I, in your place, would have taken the wisdom.” Gandhi shrugged and responded, “Each one takes what he doesn’t have.” Mr. Peters, by this time was fit to be tied.
So great was his anger that he wrote on Gandhi’s exam sheet the word “idiot” and gave it to Gandhi. Gandhi took the exam sheet and sat down at his desk trying very hard to remain calm while he contemplated his next move. A few minutes later, Gandhi got up, went to the professor and told him in a dignified polite tone, “Mr. Peters, you signed the sheet, but you did not give me the grade.”
Help us flood Congress with calls and emails this Thursday demanding they leave the Internet alone by adding a widget to your website, blog, or tumblr asking your visitors to join the Internet Vote and call Congress and oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Putting a secret deal like the Trans-Pacific Partnership on a Fast Track is absurdly undemocratic. There’s no public oversight, and to us, that’s just not okay. The Internet Vote on Thursday is the opposite of that — it’s a day to remind lawmakers that transparency and openness are how politics are supposed to work.
This is the same tactic that we’ve used as the backbone of our campaigns to stop SOPA, defeat CISPA, and win net neutrality. So, we know it works.
We also know that to make it powerful enough, we need people like you with websites, blogs, and tumblrs to be the frontrunners, leaders, and heroes on this. It’s the key ingredient to raising the bar and making sure the Internet shows up in numbers that Washington can’t ignore.
