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.

The game

For our canine followers: this is a simple sort of game that can be played by two dogs (or more). It's one of Kimaya's favourites.

This is how it's played: (1) find a dog, (2) bark and snap at it and do lots of play bows to invite it to join the game, (3) start running up to a predermined point, with the dog running after you, (4) stop running, turn around and chase the dog back the way you came, till you reach the spot where this silly game started, (5) keep repeating this indefinitely while your human mummy stands by with your leash in her hand, calling you to finish and come home. It's very important to pay no attention at all to anything she's saying.

Have fun!

This is soooo enjoyable to watch...really funny.
