DAY 268: A GUEST PORTFOLIO FROM A GREAT DOG SUPPORTER
One of the most heartwarming things about this year long journey is all of you.
You’ve probably guessed by now that although I’m travelling a lot on the plane (and I’m off again in a few days – news to follow) this journey is more about visiting parts of my mind than it is other physical destinations. Places that I’ve neglected for too long: fears, doubts and contradictions in my understanding of our relationship to animals .
And so it makes a huge difference to have you on the ride.
An early supporter is a man called Shane Green who I have still not met but he clearly shares a huge love of dogs. He also happens to be a rather wonderful photographer. When I was out in India last it so happened he was too, visiting and taking pictures of dogs at a rescue centre in Rajasthan, India called Tree of Life for Animals who clearly do great work.
Unfortunately we did not meet but he sent me these inspiring photos.Check out his slideshow here

Shane tells how TOFLA was started by an inspirational British Vet Nurse called Rachel Wright who saw how a small town in India was clearing the streets of dogs for a festival using inhumane methods that sometimes involved tying dogs to trees in the hot desert.
Good work Shane. Wishing your dog Lulu a speedy recovery.
