Below is a guest post by the animal and human rights activist and supporter of free software Luis Leonel.
The word “chocho” has at least four definitions in Spanish language. One of them is “candy”. Chocho is also the name of this beautiful Uruguayan puppy who was born with no eyes, and is as sweet as a candy.
Chocho is not a handicapped animal because he has already demonstrated he is able to love, and only the creatures who are unable to love should be considered “the handicapped”.
The handicapped are the humans. Never the animals.
