Love this image from Daijiworld!  Poor little monkey can’t find its mom !  I have not seen this in my time in India as dogs usually chase monkeys, but I love the image.

Poor tired Mama dog!   She started with 8 puppies but by the time they were grown, there were only 2 left.  We saw one get hit by a car and the driver stop and carry the injured puppy to the sidewalk.   It died over night. We thought this is the fate for many feral puppies in India!

It is very hot in the sunshine, every day. Many dogs lie under parked cars which is hot too.. But what is this dog thinking lying on the roof of the car and panting in the heat?

This dog is smarter and he is lying out of the sun on the cool stone steps we used every day entering CEPT University.

Jennifer and me on Mr. Rock in the desert between Jalsalmer and Pakistan. Notice Mr. Rocket’s necklace. He also had bells on his front ankles!

On reason there is such a monkey problem with these aggressive cuties.  People feed them  in honor of Hanuman the Hindu Monkey god.

Beast of burden. . . a scene  from the past that is still the present.

These are Indian parrots that add even more color to vibrant India!

Cows walk in the streets, gather at the intersection, do as they please. They are holy to Hindus.  Here a man is blessing the cow. The legend is that if you bless a cow , you will be blessed.

I took this picture!   This huge male monkey was resting on the motorcycle just outside the neighborhood Jain Temple . I have no idea what happened when the human returned but monkeys are treated with great respect!

A man and his faithful dog. This was a picture from 2013 at CEPT. . . guards on duty.   They both were gone when we returned in 2015.  My hope is a long and happy retirement!

This is Jesse. . . brave guy from our group.  This cobra was in a basket to be removed for pictures, at a price of course.  The Amber Fort in Jaipur was the only  place to see the famous cobras.  We were told that the highly poisonous venom sacks are removed before  the snakes  are put on display. Nonetheless, Jesse is a brave guy!   No way, I was going to do that !

Few of the images from Google Public Domain.

Can you see why I loved Incredible India so much?   This is just some of the animals and the people were the most amazing!   Your thoughts, please. . .  .

    These are such great shots…coming from a household that always had pets around, animals definitely add an incredible dimension to life. Gotta love the camel shot the best 🙂

      LOL. . . .thanks. . . Mr. Rocket was a great ride! I learned so much moment to moment in India. The male camels are the calm ones available for riding by tourists but just the opposite is true about elephants. The females are calm enough for the riding. The elephant bulls are suppose to be wild guys !
