What beautiful dogs! These wonderfully-adorned dogs are actually members of Nepal's police force.

During the Tihar festival, rings of marigolds are placed around the dogs' necks, and their faces are decorated with vermillion (a red pigment).

The festival is a day of worship to repay love to man's best friend.
