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.

Samson the Valentine





The model for these beautiful Valentine's Day pictures is Samson, once a street dog in Pune!

Owners Kristin and Lee are travelling and Samson has been staying with friends of theirs. This was his Valentine's Day greeting to his mum and dad and friends.

The photo is by Joy Baleisis, and the heart was made by Cynthia Kroening.

I wonder what all his former acquaintances from Pune would say if they could see this? I mean all the people who saw his miserable plight and ignored him. I'm sure most wouldn't believe he could have got all his hair and strength back, let alone grow into such a beauty!
