“7 cães a 1 osso”

7dogs to 1 bone

In Portugal we say “7 cães a 1 osso” which means “7 dogs to 1 bone”, when something has a very high demand and a very low supply, like applying for a job that you think is so good and you might not be able to get it because there’s more people applying and waiting for it, or when you want something that someone wants too and there’s only one left, that will be seven dogs to one bone.

Normally, we say that in a humorous way because it might be a situation that is not good to laugh at, but it all depends on the situation that you or other person are in.

Hope you like and enjoy saying that. 🙂 Wish you a great week.
