    Bouncy is a bit more wary than most of the others. She won’t approach people closer than four or five feet. She likes it on top of that wall, and retreats there to watch for prey in the small agricultural field it encloses; to nap; or to escape from other dogs, who decline to bounce up after her.

    The singing Pariah Dogs…

    Lived in southern Nepal near Indian border 45 years ago where feral dogs lived mostly in smaller cities. They were all unvaccinated & occasionally were rabid. Their lives were short & brutal. They lived on trash, human excrement & anything else they could hunt or scavenge. Village dogs, though not pets, served as watch dogs & had a much better life. A village near to where I lived had many dogs & was named KookorBookor or Barking Dog in English. Feral dogs were uncommon in country side because of the many jackals that occupied that niche. In 2007 I stayed with a retired Indian Army officer in Coorg who rescued many dogs from the city & brought them to his coffee plantation where they were well cared for. Thought this was unusual.
