The Dog of the Year

a CJ Memorial Trust Initiative

 

ABOUT The #IndieDogDay

You've noticed them too, and it's time we stepped up to recognise a much loved fellow compatriot - The Indie Dog. 

 

Call them anything you want, however politically incorrect - pariah, cur, streetie, Indian, desi, stray, mixed breed, community dogs, anything. These dogs have emerged from years of great genetics of survival on the street and hardy genes. Due to poor sterilisation framework & implementation, there are far too many on the streets perhaps, but many do just fine and it's fantastic how Indians have started stepping up to adopt their own as pets.

 

'Mixed breed dogs tend to be healthier, better behaved, they live longer and are just as able to perform the duties of pure bred dogs. However we are indoctrinated by our culture and the old caste system into wanting a pure breed pedigree, however alien they are to our weather and environment.

 

By establishing a National or Global Indie Day, we are merely directing attention of citizens and our dog lovers and citizens to one of our most loyal and true Indian canines; we attach the brand and cachet that reduces the snob value and casteist love for only the pedigrees.

 

#IndiesAreTheNewCool! We do the right thing, we direct the gaze to where it should be , and we build up a brand and awareness for one of the most beloved local friends we could ever have. We always have. Now , lets just make it official !

 

We all agree that every dog must have its day, the #IndieDog most of all. Every Dog has its Day. Let's all ensure that our #IndieDog has theirs .

It's about time.
