The Bankhar Dog - Mongolia

Historically, the Bankhar was an inseparable part of the nomadic herder’s life. In Mongolia, Bankhar dogs are thought to be “of the same spirit” as humans, and dogs are the only animals that are given names. When a Bankhar dies, its remains are typically placed on top of a mountain so it is closer to the gods and spirit world, and so that people do not walk over its bones. May the souls of our two dogs, Maia & Apollo, brother & sister rest in peace
