Our cute pug is alert to the new visitor but too lazy to give chase. As he keeps a vigilant eye, the squirrel gnaws on treats laid out for the pug 🙂
Monkeys can be quite a menace in certain colonies in New Delhi. They ruin trees and plants and threaten people in general..
Langoor Man to the rescue! It is well known that the only animal that can scare the army of monkeys is the calm, black-faced Langoor. Here, he is pictured with his handler, who is gathering clues about the next monkey attack in the vicinity..
Saw this beautiful sight on a ferry.. Two dogs, happy with their humans, waiting patiently to get off 🙂
Every time the loud horn sounded the owner of the little one put her hands over his ears and soothed him. Just adorable to watch! Needless to say the big guy was totally at ease and enjoying the buzz he had created by his mere majestic presence 🙂
Sometimes one comes across a sight that immediately connects with life. These three donkeys were in a river bed, one standing, the other sitting and the third lying down. It instantly reminded me of the energy and exuberance of youth, then the slight slowing down of middle age and the final “Calling it a Day” 🙂
The youngster below was working in a tea-stall in the hills. When we stopped for a break, he enthusiastically opened a wooden cupboard and brought these handful of pups. One couldn’t help but notice his sense of pride in this little pack 🙂
When I asked him how they breathed inside the wooden cupboard, he opened it wide and showd me the crude holes he had made at the back of it! The mother of these pups was also inside, recouperating from the birthing ordeal, no doubt.
