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.

Tommy's 8th birthday

Dr Manik Godbole sent in these pictures of Tommy and Chinky, taken on Tommy's eighth birthday, 14th November 2010.

(That happens to be the birth anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, our first Prime Minister! Celebrated as "Children's Day" in India.)

Above: Tommy gets a birthday kiss from Manik

Above: Pretty Chinky with Mrs Godbole

These two need no introduction in this blog, but in case you started reading quite recently, here are some earlier posts about Tommy and Chinky, and beautiful gentle Blacky who passed away last year. Click here, here and here.

Happy birthday Tommy, a few days late - many many happy returns.

Tommy is a lucky dog, so loved and cared for. As dogs get older they need us even more. Spare a thought for the oldies :)
