I find this dog very interesting because he was sleeping like a log despite of huge sound of bell all around him. It was taken at nearby home at Shidhashwor Mahadev Temple at Kaushaltar, Bhaktapur.

“Hey buddy, what you say about my look?”
“By the way this photographer did not seem to be afraid from my looks. I think I have to bite him, what you say buddy?”
“And he looks delicious to me, wanna join me to bite him, we will enjoy it”
