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.

In praise of Pixie








































True beauty and talent cannot be defined by words - which makes it very difficult for me to describe Pixie, the newest member of the Indian Pariah Dog Club. "Adorable," "friendly," "compassionate," "loving," "cute" are all understatements when it comes to describing this fun-loving Pariah, who behaves like nothing less than a princess. Initially when we adopted her she took quite some time to adjust, or rather to come out from under the bed. But when she did (which took almost three long months) it was a joyous sight to watch her pixie-like ears point sky high, and her look of excitement every time the doorbell rang. Pixie is always cheerful and has a charismatic personality. Her regal features are what leave all onlookers gazing as she passes by with her poised and sophisticated walk. I am now running out of words to describe a one-in-a-million dog who can touch your heart just by one innocent look.

Rajashree's footnote: Pixie was adopted by the Iyer family at a WSD Adoption Mela in 2004. So I am extremely proud and happy to welcome her to the Club!
