Gordy, the skinny street dog

Gordy is too skinny. He got the name because of the Mexican penchant for giving nicknames that are opposite of a physical trait. Gordo is fat in Spanish so I named this street dog Gordy, an American name, because this dog also happens to be a guero or blonde.

Gordy's has a few scars, no doubt from a few street battles.  But he doesn't even seem aggressive because as starving as he is, he allowed another dog to share his food yesterday.  He won't let me near.  He is wary.  But he's always at my gate waiting for me to come home.  

Did anybody love him when he was a puppy, but now they've forgotten to feed him?

  1. I find it amazing here in Mexico that the street dogs are the sweetest ones.

    It's the house dogs that scare the shit out of me! Stupid owners let aggressive dogs outside to pee and poo GRRRR
