About Me

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.

Why doesn't Lalee want to return to Mumbai after our Nagaon visits? Hmmm, can't imagine!
There have been occasions when we've had to
actually drag her out from under the bed when it's time to come back. Grumpy doesn't begin to describe her expression.

I understand, I feel quite the same myself. I do the best I can by taking her there every fortnight for a few days. We spend at least 8 days there every month.

I wouldn't mind leaving her there for a few days more with our caretaker, but she isn't really as independent as she appears and tends to fret without me.

Hi, I'll email you. Lalee had distemper in December 2001 but we detected it early and she was completely cured. I adopted her after that. She was treated by a very good vet at the Bai Sakabai Dinshaw Petit hospital for Animals and she was also treated by a homeopathic doctor.
