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.

INDogs of Orissa

Some pictures from my recent trip to Orissa (20 to 23 August).

Below: Unimpressed by the exquisite ancient sculpture all around him, this dog settles down for a late morning nap. His bloodline, after all, is definitely more ancient than this temple. Rajarani Temple, Bhubaneswar, 11th century A.D.

Below: Another temple dog. This one lives next to the famous 13th century Sun Temple at Konark. I wonder how he lost his tail...

Below: Pregnant bitch, Sun Temple, Konark

Below: Goatherd with his livestock guardian dog, near Satkosia Tiger Reserve
