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.

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.
