This cute puppy was playing amongst the Prayer Wheels of the Tikse Gompa, a beautiful Buddhist monastery near Leh in the Indian Himalaya.
I was visiting the monastery whilst on a motorcycle tour of the Himalaya in August 2009.
As we were leaving the monastery one of the young monks placed the pup up alongside the wheels where he could be patted by visitors spinning the wheels and praying. (I also suspect the young monk was tiring of entertaining the pup himself).
It certainly worked as our puppy loved the attention.
