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.

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!

Cagando e andando

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.

Same as "Get out". You can use this while you are talking with your friends, but it is not very polite. Probably, you wouldn''t use"Cai fora" in a business meeting. Or after having dinner with a hot woman.

- O jogo tá um lixo, vamo cair fora?
