I'm a landrace dog fancier. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. Before that, I worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai from 1993-2007. Also a spider enthusiast and amateur arachnologist.

This blog is for aboriginal dog enthusiasts. It is part of the INDog Project www.indog.co.in. Only INDogs (Indian Pariah Dog) and INDog-mixes (Indies) 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 landrace village dog of the Indian subcontinent. I sometimes feature other landrace breeds too. Also see padsociety.org

INDog Senna lives with Puloma's family in Pantnagar, Uttarakhand. What a lovely dog!

Puloma writes:

One fine day we found two small pups outside our house hiding behind our car. They were really small, adorable, very playful, so we had no option but to feed them and keep them with us. 

One of them, the boy, disappeared after staying with us for one month. We searched for him everywhere but couldn't find him. I hope he is safe and happy wherever he is.

It was difficult for us and his sister, but I like to think of it as God's bigger plan for us.

From that day onwards we totally took care of our baby and her needs. We had never had any experience of keeping a dog in the house, but we still managed to do pretty well! (Yay!)

From vaccinations and trips to the vet to her spaying and post-op stress, it has been a difficult yet beautiful ride. She is extremely playful.

The best part of our day is when we all return from college, school or work and find her waiting for us with that cute wagging tail.

I have never been more happy in my entire life!

Along with  her, we look after two other old Indies as well. They just sit outside, guard the house and accompany us quietly wherever we go. (Thank God they are not as playful as Senna!)

May God bless all such voiceless creatures and those who stand up for them.

This is a perfect posting. As such it needs no comment but I just had to say it. Senna will continue to be an unqualified happiness in your life, I am sure.
