The Last Fashion Statement: El Chucho by Rudy Girón, on Flickr

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. —Mahatma Ghandi

One can be in fashion or one can be in style. If given the choice, I rather be in style. I remember I few year ago I posted a reference to an article in the New York Times which claimed that the latest fashion statement was to go around with a Latin American adopted chucho. I will share the post below.

Believe it or not, I read recently in an article in the New York Times (printed edition, so no link) that the latest fashion statement in the U.S. was to adopt Latin American street dogs, mutts, commonly known here as “chuchos”. Well, maybe this should be the type of Guatemalan adoptions that should make the headlines. There is an abundance of chuchos or street dogs available for adoption in La Antigua Guatemala and throughout Guatemala.

So if you want to be in fashion this upcoming season, head down to Guatemala for your own chucho. You can start at Animal Welfare Association Rescue/Education ( or at Asociación de Amigos de los Animales ( for details on how to adopt your own personal chucho friend. You will never regret this fashion tip! 😉
