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.

The caring brother




As I wrote earlier, my Rick and Spike are two brothers who just cannot stay apart from each other. They are really inseparable and love each other a lot.

One more incident of Spike showing his devotion to his brother Rick...It was a Sunday, and we had just returned from our weekend home (they love it there). They were both very tired and were sleeping. They have a habit of coming and sitting in the kichen at 8.30 p.m. in the evening to wait for their dinner.

That day as expected Spike came but Rick was so tired that he kept sleeping. When we were just about to give them their food bowls Spike realised that Rick wasn't there. Normally Spike jumps up for his food as he loves chicken. But this time he went running to the room where Rick was sleeping, nosed him awake and almost seemed to whisper something to him! The drowsy Rick got up and followed his bhaiyya (brother) to the kichen for his dinner, which they both guzzled happily.
