About Me

My photo
Mumbai, India
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

We have quite the INDog blitz this month. What a treat!

Next up is pretty Putu, who lives in Shantiniketan, West Bengal. She was an orphaned pup, but like all our blog puppies she is now a pampered member of a human family. She also has a best friend, who happens to be feline!

These photos were sent to me by her human Prithwi Hazra. You can see many more on Facebook where she has her own very popular page @putu.the indi pup 

Incidentally I'm very happy to see hundreds of people using the term 'indi/indie' nowadays! It's a term first used by me, in this blog, as a derivative of 'INDog.' I think I first used it in a post about my dear friend Leela, in 2008.
