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
