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.

Rocket and Gobbers: the terrible two!

If you've been coming here for a while you'll probably remember these two. Last year (October 30) I posted photos of young Gobbers, then known as Goblin, sitting inside a soup bowl. Also the first photo here, of him sleeping snuggled up to Rocket. Well, as expected Gobbers has grown rather a lot since then and has also grown really superb-looking. I hear from his owner Anuradha Gupta that his behaviour is, er, feisty, but then he is still very young and will perhaps calm down over time.

I love the totally different expressions and body language of these two dogs as they look out of the balcony. Gobbers absolutely alert and watchful - has another dog dared to enter his territory? And Rocket soulful, gentle and meditative as always.
