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.

The white brothers

At our other home, Kimaya's attempts to make new friends meet with greater success.

That's because she's known these brothers since they were born last year. They belong to our neighbour. You can see their pictures in earlier posts - click here and here. In the latter post, they are in the fifth series of photos (Dogs 5: Nagaon, Konkan coast, Maharashtra).

Incidentally they don't seem to understand that Kimaya is neutered and did try to mount a couple of times. I had to shoo them off and later Brownie appeared and chased them away. But they are still very puppyish and enjoy running almost as much as she does, so it's fun to meet them.

The yelps you hear from Kimaya are of fear, not pain. While she does want to make friends, she is still a very timid dog and sometimes takes fright if other dogs come close.
