About Me

My photo
Mumbai, India
I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. Before that, worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai from 1993-2007. Also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation.

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.

This is my old friend (and one-time colleague) Colleen Xavier, with "office pet" Lolo.

Lolo walked into the Lowe Lintas office way back in 2002. She was a tiny pup, and the regional head, a dog lover, decided to adopt her.

The office is in a bungalow of its own with a little garden attached. Lolo leads a happy life there, looked after by Colleen and other friends.

I'm sure it's a stress buster for many of the employees to have this cheerful INDog around.
