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 Millie, newest member of the Paul family.

The Pauls recently lost their beloved mix-breed dog Sabrina and wanted to adopt another street dog. So when Minnie and her daughter Priti saw this little pup on the road, they decided to take her home. It was Priti's choice really.

Millie is three months old now. I've been laughing at her funny expressions ever since I received these photos. Specially the picture of her sleeping, and the one of her fighting with Priti. It reminds me of my animal-filled childhood, a long long time ago! I always feel so sorry for children who grow up without pets...

Millie is going through a nipping phase, so the whole family are nursing puppy bites right now. But no-one minds, because, as Minnie says, the pup "has brought life into our lives."
