Cinco De Bulldog


Hola! Ozzie wanted to wish you all a happy Cinco De Mayo! Though in researching it a bit I found that Mexico doesn't make as much of a big deal about it as we do here in the states. It's not even a national holiday there!
The misconception is that it's Mexico's equivalent of our Independence Day. It really celebrates a rag tag army that back in 1861 lead by General
Zaragoza engaged in battle with the French army in the small town of Puebla de Los Angeles. They were outnumbered 2 to 1. The battle lasted until dawn and the French lost 500 men versus the Mexicans who lost only 100. Though this was not a major battle against the French it was symbolic victory for Mexico. How this evolved into eating quesadilla's and multiple rounds of Margaritas I am not sure.
The occasion also forced me to wake Ozzie up from his morning nap to take this
ridiculous picture.

Happy Cinco De Mayo all! Sorry Oz!
