merida, yucatan: typical mexican dogs

two dogs were playing on the sidewalk next to an outdoor food court. I snapped a couple of pictures, and one of the men lounging after lunch pointed with the air of a helpful and patient tour guide, and explained: "those are typical Mexican dogs."

Are you sure the one on the right isn't a chupacabra?

That was going to be my question. I'd never have thought of "chupacabra", though. I'd have probably settled on "bloodthirsty beast". Or "are you sure they were playing?".
Not quite the same ring, huh?

deem- it seems every time a cryptozoology site posts a picture of a "chupacabra corpse" it ends up being a mangy dog. With teeth just like that.

deem - no but that beast has the power to be in many places at once

nice shot monkey, i'm still amazed at the way you translate real life to digital imagaes - striking

anne: they were definitely playing. no worries. they were happy and friendly dogs.

graymalkin: the dude providing captions seemed to know what he was talking about, although I seem no harm in changing the label on the photo and propagating it thusly.

and yeah, the shot is all about the teeth.

my litle dog does that some times. it almost makes you think she's vicious, and not actually 25 pounds and afraid of the sound the smoke detector makes when it's low on batteries.

Can you blame her? I'm way bigger than your dog and the sound of the beep when the batteries are low on the smoke detector scares the frick outta me.
