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.

For Blacky

Coping with loss is always very hard, and my heart goes out to Manik and her family who recently went through the grief of losing their beloved Blacky.

This post is in memory of this sweet-tempered, brave and beautiful dog.

Below: The next five pictures were the last ones taken before his death. Manik tells me that Chinky often sat next to him in the last days.
