There is an entire day during this festival in Nepal that's sole purpose is to thank dogs for their friendship and loyalty.
Tihar is a five day Hindu festival, but the second day is reserved for our loyal companions.
It is called Kukur Tihar or Kukur Puja (worship of the dogs).
People offer garlands, tika (a mark worn on the forehead), and delicious food to dogs, and acknowledge the cherished relationship between humans and dogs.
Because dogs are the best people...
