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.

Grumps and Honey portraits

Lovely portraits of two beautiful girls: Grumps and Honey, clicked by doting mum Vidya.

Have a look at their earlier posts: Grumpy, and Epic battle between Dog and Lizard.

Grumps



Honey








































The two aren't related, though they could be mistaken for sisters. Grumps was adopted as a puppy in Bangalore, and Honey was rescued by Vidya and Samik as an adult in Pune.

'I found her with both her front legs broken, lying by the roadside,' says Vidya. 'She was probably run over by a two-wheeler or car...She just lay there crying for help, hungry, thirsty and in pain, with people walking past wondering why, but not bothering to actually do anything. My husband and I were going grocery shopping when we found her...Poor Honey had to undergo three surgeries on her front leg, and there is a metal rod in it.'

Grumps has an extremely gentle side, and gets on very well with her 'sibling' as you can see from the photos.

Look at those Indy eyes!

I love this one of Honey

The girls are taken to this park every day to play

Lovely Honey, a.k.a. Blondie
