When it comes to the care or caring of anything, the actions of human beings can be cloaked in so many coats of painted faces that it can be impossible even with industrial chemical stripper to get down to the base intent.
Welfare scare comes when those in the industry actually begin to obsessively believe and listen to their own whispers. Their internal voices telling them they really are in fact experts in what is fair and well for others. It becomes really scary when there is no room left for any other opinion other than their very own very opinionated opinion of themselves and their elevated importance, above and beyond all else.
The welfare of a Bali Street Dog is a nefarious subject indeed. Given half a bark and a quart of snarls, a plethora of pontificating persons would surely be expertly lined up gagging to regurgitate their wisdom.
We are certainly not experts or whisperers when it comes to Bali Street Dogs, that domain and dogma is very much reserved for them and how they see us with their collective noses.
The Bali Street Dog can trace its genetic linage way back to the wolf and we humans can thank the chimps for our make upped faces. A very wonderful book titled, “The Professor and the Wolf”, lays out the unfortunate route taken when the conniving chimp won the battle for our narcissistic nature. For such a blossoming bipedal beast to have bent toward the wolf, would of course have been impossible genetically and biologically, what a shame.
I like the simplicity of the main subject matter in this site, the Bali Street Dog. By simplicity I certainly don’t mean their intelligence or demeanour, far from it. I simply refer to the “get what you get” outcome actioned directly from their thoughts reality. There is no messing about with a selfishly playful and insidious menu choice of intent.
All we know and have concluded after spending a few years permanently with Bali Street Dogs and we really do mean permanently, is simply that if people were Bali Street Dogs they would be much better served by a nose that is trusted to guide and unhide, rather than eyes that belie and betray.
