What you shout to your dog after he/she made some bad thing (like eating your homework ;-). That's one way of saying "bad dog" in Portuguese, though some people could say too "cachorro mau".


- Não! Não! Ah, cachorro feio!

A "skinny dog" or "thin dog" is someone who comes to your house only to eat. They usually arrive, do some small talk, eat and disappear right after of that.

The expression comes from when you feed a skinny dog. They are usually afraid, and grab the food and rush away with it.


- O Tomás é maior cachorro magro né? Veio na festa só pra comer.

Shortened version of "bocadinho", that is the same as modicum, or just a little bit.


- ficou com ciúme dele?
- Ah, sabe... só um cadinho.

That's the name you would give when playing tag to someone that was younger and didn't know how to play very well. So he would never have to run after others, even if you tagged him.


- Peguei! com você!
- Não vale, sou café com leite!

When you have completely messed up at something, or have made terrible mistake. For example, you had to send a report, but by accident CTRL V'ed some reddit link while writing. This would be a "cagada".


- Ontem eu tentei abrir uma cerveja com os dentes... acabei quebrando os dois centrais.
- Putz mano, que cagada!

Okay, this one can be very handy. Literally translating, it would be "Shitting and walking". But the meaning, is similar to "Water off a duck's back".

There's a pun with those Yogurts the makes your intestines work better and Johnnie Walker, as one makes you shit, and the other says to keep walking.

It is used to demonstrate that you don''t care about something.


- Ow, ouviu o que eles tão falando de você?
- Bah, cagando e andando mano.

A "cagueta" is a rat, or a grass. The verb "caguetar" is similar to to grass or to rat out someone. There is a saying that goes "cagueta morre cedo", meaning more or less "rats die first", or "grass goes first".


- Aê! Você é maior zé ruela hein?
- Eu? Por quê?
- Você me caguetou que eu sei!

- O FaceBook é maior cagueta né?
