Nepalese dogs received blessings in the form of vermillion powder on their heads and garlands around their necks during the Tihar festival on Nov. 6, 2018. The annual five-day celebration sees Nepalese Hindus worshipping their pups according to the traditional belief that they are messengers of Yamraj, the god of death.
