About Me

My photo
Mumbai, India
I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. I'm also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. I worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai for 14 years.

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.

Eight years of this blog - thank you!!

Yes, my first post on this blog was on 3 August 2007! A big day for me, if for no-one else.

My aim was to create a virtual showcase of INDogs and dogs of INDog ancestry. To spread knowledge about aboriginal dogs out of the academic circles to which it was restricted, to a wider, general audience. And to make owners proud of their pet INDogs and INDog-mixes.

I had no idea how to create a blog, and Gunjan Arya kindly helped me set it up (thanks Gunjan)! 

Today we have 421 posts about adopted INDogs and INDog-mixes, or Indies as I like to call the latter. Thanks entirely to all the wonderful people who sent in photos and stories over the years.

To celebrate, I put together this photo gallery of all the gorgeous dogs I featured in the first few months of this blog. Sadly some have passed on, but many are with us and continue to be brilliant ambassadors for INDogs and Indies! 

Each of them is very special to me.

My deepest gratitude to their humans, who took the trouble to share their stories with us all.

Enjoy the visual treat coming up, and don't forget to read our INDog website too!
