Memorial for Brave Dogs

© K. L. Kamat
Loga -- a very brave dog
Loga -- a very brave dog

An inscription from Mulbagal Taluka of 950 A.D. gives a brief account of two brave dogs, Loga and Thalaga. They accompanied their master, son of Parasandi, in numerous hunting expeditions in which 75 boars were killed by Loga and 25 by Thalaga. One is naturally curious to know the breed of such outstanding dogs. Fortunately the hero-stone of Kattigenhalli gives a good illustration of the dogs. The upper half of the hero-stone illustrates Loga and the lower Thalaga. They belonged to the species of hunting dogs which might have been brought from Banavasi, Mudhol and Andhra Pradesh. It is very evident that they were well fed, cared for, and trained for hunting.
