This post is part of an ongoing challenge to share a little joy I have found each day of this year, and perhaps for the rest of my life. I hope you enjoy it!

I have always had a bit of a strange relationship with dogs. There is a part of me that takes deep joy in seeing them, playing with them, simply letting their wild excitement infect me and going into a childish play mode.
But as the years have gone by and social media has become infested with peoples kind of creepy obsession with dogs, I have become slightly turned off by them in many instances, but I recognize that it is not the dogs I have an issue with, more so just how people are trying to turn them into human babies.
That being said, from time to time they still manage to catch me off guard and have me smiling from ear to ear, and here in Bali, with its extremely large quantity of wild dogs simply loping around in packs, I have had the chance to see some hilarious dog confrontations. As I walked the beach, two groups of dogs clashed, not in a violent way, but simply play fighting which turned into butt sniffing then into running full pelt into waves only to be thrown back onto the shore, only to resume butt sniffing.
Dogs are some of the strangest, funniest, weirdest, cutest looking creatures we have bred. I don’t think I will ever truly get tired of them, even if humans can be slightly annoying with how they treat them.
May the doggies reign supreme for many centuries to come.
As always, stay healthy and let your geek freak fly!
