Dogs

hellobali Guide to Bali - - TABLE OF CONTENTS -

UN­LIKE MOST OTHER PARTS of the ar­chi­pel­ago where they

are ei­ther re­viled or stewed, here dogs are kept as pets. Bali

dogs, a dis­tinct breed whose clos­est rel­a­tive is the Aus­tralian

dingo, are renowned for their in­tel­li­gence and in­de­pen­dence.

Their place in Ba­li­nese hearts is

fur­ther se­cured by a tale from the Hindu epic the Ma­hab­harata

in which Yud­histhira’s faith­ful mutt re­veals it­self to be the god

Yama.
