About Me

My photo
Mumbai, India
I'm a landrace dog fancier and birder. 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.

Snapshots in the snow

Far from sunny Mumbai where he was born, Rishi is actually enjoying the cold NYC winter, wrapped up in two coats one on top of the other! The first two pictures were taken in his favourite dog run, where he goes to meet his retriever friend Redford and of course race around with "sibling" Leela. Meanwhile his biological sibling Kimaya is having an equally boisterous time a hemisphere away in my garden in Nagaon. Both pups were very timid at the time of adoption so it's great to see their completely changed, confident temperament now.

All the photos were taken in Riverside Park, NYC. The first two are inside the dog run at 105th Street. The third picture with Leela and owner Yvonne de Kock was taken outside the park.
