About Me

Mumbai, India
I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. I'm also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. I worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai for 14 years.

This blog is for aboriginal breed enthusiasts. It is part of the INDog Project www.indog.co.in. Only INDogs (Indian Pariah) and INDog-mix mongrels are featured here. The two are NOT the same, do please read the text on the right to understand the difference. Our aim: to create awareness about the primitive natural breed called the Indian Pariah Dog/INDog. I sometimes feature other landrace breeds too.

Lalee turns seven





Back to my Lalee, the inspiration for the Indian Pariah Dog Club.

Lalee turned seven on 15 March. I had written a whole lot of stuff about her for this post, but then I thought how embarrassed she would be if she could read all my sentimental mush. She just isn't that sort of dog. Bandra's the softie here. Lalee's tough. Lalee's independent. Lalee tosses her head and runs away if cuddled for too long. Though she's mushy enough in her own controlled way.

These photos were taken by Rohan Mukerjee in Lalee's favourite place, Nagaon beach. Please don't comment on that tummy, it is a sensitive topic (for me!) and we are working on it.

Hi! Wishing Lalee a very happy, healthy , long life!! she looks pregnant rajashree, do something! but i must say atleast she is 'female' my blacky was on verge of pregnant male!!i have reduced his meals and he has lost 2 kgs. good that u are back to mumbai.
chinky had developed some boil like things on her sideways, i suppose after rough plays in the terrace, some allergy maybe, i applied 'lippu' oil regularly and all the boils and their scars went away. wish to try it on tommy too.bye till then, manik.
