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.

Nagaon and our whole strip of coast have been badly affected by the recent oil spill, so the dogs are barred from going to the beach to play. It wouldn't have been unsafe to take Lalee for a walk there because she avoids the water, but Kimaya loves splashing in the sea and also gobbles up fish dropped from the fishermens' nets. So we have simply stopped going there for the time being.

Luckily my relatives have a beautiful coconut plantation (called wadi in Marathi) and their place adjoins our house. On rainy days we don't leave our own garden, but there was a sunny morning recently so I took the dogs over to play. In the monsoon it's always green and beautiful, overgrown with colocasia and other plants.

More pictures in the next post.

Here are some of last year's monsoon pictures.
