Is one of those Bali Street Dogs that chases cars and motor bikes and every now and then starts a street fight with the other pawed provocateurs that frequent a narrow and busy patch of earth they all share and have as a home base.
It is impossible to know if whitey, who is called whitey because that’s his color, actually he looks more cream now due to the amount of dirt he has collected from charging at things made out of metal and fur, but creamy just wouldn't seem to suit his demeanor. It’s impossible to know if whitey enjoys tearing at machines and throats of other dogs, but it can be said with some degree of confident observation that he certainly doesn't seem to mind. Everything else on the receiving end of his terror appears to be quite unimpressed and it has been nothing short of miraculous that whitey has survived to near adulthood. Only chicken chasing would be above his antics and the sentence for such crimes is a fairly mandatory matter.
Like any free roaming and collarless young male street dog, he is very fond of exercising his rampant hormones fast limbs and large lungs and more times than not his array of needs are shown in full force action all at once. With his pale yellow piercing eyes, forceful confident loping strut and throaty growl, whitey certainly doesn't on first impression impart an aura of soft friendliness, but then again very few street dogs anywhere do.
But there are many reasons why Bali Street Dogs are still around and one of them is because they are not outwardly or intentionally aggressive to the human species, thankfully. Contrary to some misinformed and at times popular belief that there are packs of crazed street dogs attacking unsuspecting tourists en masse, they don’t and there aren't. Bali street dogs have learned over millennium to live with us and parallel to us, they have actually worked out that they need humans for the most important source element of all, food.
Whitey was a very cute puppy that has grown and survived to be a crazy adolescent, let’s hope he matures into a healthy adult and continues to charge around in his old age.
