Here is one of the oldest dog blog on our list. The earliest articles in the ‘Dog with Blog’ date as far back as 2008 making this blog, 11 years old!
‘Dog with Blog’ is the perfect name for this blog. Apparently, Kaalicharan – a beautiful black dog with a white muzzle – owns the blog. He introduces himself in the first blog post and talks about how he has so much to say, but the ‘damn keyboard doesn’t suit his paws. We’re immediately hooked and want to know more about Kaalicharan.
The earlier blog articles were from Kaalicharan’s inner monologue. They were very personal and brought a smile on your face, from lines like, ‘You’re safe lady, the only females I kill are mosquitoes,’ to thought-provoking articles like A Gift for God we assure you that this blog is very unique and worth your time.
Over recent years, Kaalicharan’s voice seems missing. However, since this blog is 11 years old, we can understand there were massive changes that took place in Abhishek Joshi’s (the real blog owner) personal lives.
Their current articles are very detailed, helpful and informative, but they no longer follow the first-person point of view (or, in this case, a dog’s point of view). Though we miss Kaalicharan, we cannot undermine how helpful this blog continues to be among dog parents in India.
Our only criticism, however, is a particular limitation in the blog design. A person wanting to maneuver through the pages must scroll all the way down to use the search bar. The articles are not segregated in different categories; hence, it is tough to know how many categories they have covered and also the number of articles they have written under each category.
Currently, Abhishek Joshi, continues to spread awareness about animal safety, protection and care through his blog and his Twitter handle.
An excellent blog is one that inspires, motivates and makes you feel like you are a part of the community. The ‘Dog with Blog’ checks all the boxes when it comes to a good dog blog. It began at a time when fewer Indians had dogs. We’re sure many of us became pet parents because Kaalicharan was there to guide us through the process.
