Pack of chuchos in Antigua Guatemala

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Pack of chuchos in Antigua Guatemala

Here’s your illustrated Spanish word of the day: Jauría for pack of hounds.

Slowly but surely the street of La Antigua Guatemala are looking like scenes from the film “White God”, a movie about “a cautionary tale between a superior species and its disgraced inferior – Favoring pedigree dogs, a new regulation puts a severe tax on mixed breeds. Owners dump their dogs on the streets of Budapest…” I highly recommend watching this film if you get a chance.

Anyhow, this is just one more issue that went unattended for another year by the current municipal administration. If the mayor and the city council ever want to get ahead on their to-do list, they should try to tackle at least an issue or two per year. I am just saying…

    … so when’s the Muni gonna wake up and take care of the real problems in Antigua ? What do
    they think is more bothering and potentially even much more dangerous ? Some friendly
    smiling women selling things to tourists in the park and welcoming them with
    open arms to the beautiful Antigua or lot’s of stray dogs who are potentially
    dangerous ? They are not pets, they are stray dogs and therefore potentially
    dangerous since they are wild animals and you can not predict how they react to
    people. ( I’ve seen people go to a butcher, buy meat and feed it to the dogs which
    does make me kind of angry when there are so many people needing food… ) Personally
    I don’t like dogs much anyway, even when they are on a leach, but lot’s of big
    dogs roaming the streets and carrying lord knows what kind of diseases and fleas on
    top of it make me uneasy and I figure that’s something the muni should take care of… They need to get their priorities straight, take care of real problems instead of bothering people trying to make a living….

    • Thanks for your feedback and suggestions. I wish the Muni had an online form to receive feedback such as yours.
