Petting My Dear Friend, The Chucho

Petting My Dear Friend, The Dog

If you come to this web site looking for artistic or touristic photographs from Guatemala, you’ve come in vein because here you can only find “everyday images” from La Antigua Guatemala. Today’s image is no exception.

As a matter of fact, I captured the golden kitten petting his best friend, the chucho, while out buying tortillas for lunch as in Guatemala you buy freshly made tortillas for every meal, for los tres tiempos pues. So there I was, walking the three or four blocks to the tortillerí­a where Manolo took his tortilla-making lessons and half way there I found this everyday image. I am glad I make a conscious effort to ALWAYS carry the camera with me so I can catch as many ordinary-daily-life pictures as possible.

Today’s photo is not as good as the one shown in Partners in Adversity, but good enough to show the affection between two best friends.

    I broke down the other day and gave one a good neck massage. After I gave him my tacos.

    Great Pic!

    Rudy, I love this pic! It’s adorable, but I also love the contrast it shows to “partners in adversity” because these two (especially the chucho) look as if they are well cared for and have a place to call home) It shows the two worlds that dogs can find themselves in in Guatemala – the beloved family dog, or the struggling rover….

    Awww, they are so adorable!

  • @Jason, thanks for putting an humorous caption.

    @Raquel, I am glad you follow the white rabbit and saw the Partners in adversity. 🙁

    @Erica, they are so cute indeed. Do you want to adopt a chucho from Guatemala?

    Wow, that’s a great pic!
    I agree with Raquel they look as if they are not as homeless as the “partners in adversity” (another great photo)
    I’m glad you carry around your camera to give us a glimpse of everyday life in Antigua.
