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.

Tolly Club dogs: Frowners a.k.a. Fudge





More on the privileged dogs at Tollygunge Club, Kolkata. This is Frowners, who was given this name by our friend Pupul because of his frown lines (see Nikhil Rawal's picture of him in the previous post). He was later given the name Fudge.

These pictures were taken by my husband Kiran a couple of months ago.

As in many clubs in India, there was some dispute among members here as to whether or not the resident dogs should be allowed to remain. Luckily these dogs have quite a number of fans, so they continue to grace the august institution as before!

Canid lovers will be interested to know that Tolly Club is also host to a pack of jackals.
