There Is An Anual Festival In Nepal That Thanks Dogs For Being Our Friends

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).
