Dogshmi Puja

Our Nepalese friends invited us to join their celebration of Tahir - specifically the day of the dog puja. Dogs are honored as guardians of people - they are fed special food and given a blessing. Hazel really enjoyed the food!
Eden and I attended while the boys napped!

Here the dogs are receiving the traditional blessing from Amma (Radhika's mom).
Radhika is feeding the dogs their special treat - bananas, apples, and grapes.

I'll be sending you a copy of my new tome "The Verdes Mercurial" which of course is a a collection of verse devoted to Meredith.

Oh the kids are cute too.... I guess.
