Dogs are not Dogs to me, especially street dogs. They are special entity of our world. Good, bad or worst, whatever their situation is, but they are there with their being and nothing else. They are different sometimes, indifferent other tines, but always be with themselves.

They quarrel and ponder and after all, they amuse me that all these actions are as emotional as human and as touching as mankind. So I treat them as my neighbors or fellow beings. Wherever they are and whatever their situation is, dogs always made our dwelling much more lovable. And I feel, we as humans have not made any considerable contribution towards them. My imagery of dogs is a kind of tribute, In fact, portraiture of compassion.
