The #xolodog is …


@trece.cielos : The #xolodog is a sacred guardian and regarded protector of the souls. They are also the official #dogofmexico hairless breed. Aztecs believed they would safeguard the home from evil spirits and they were often sacrificed and buried with their owners to act as a guide to the soul on its journey to the underworld and thirteen heavens, trece cielos in spanish (a hint about our name) These dogs were considered a great delicacy, and were sacrificed for eating at weddings.
#xoloitzcuintle were considered sacred dogs by the Aztecs, Toltecs, Maya, and other groups. According to Aztec mythology, the god Xolotl made the Xoloitzcuintli from a sliver of the Bone of Life from which all mankind was made. Xolotl gave this gift to Man to guard it with his life, in exchange #xolo would guide man through the dangers of the underworld, toward the Evening Star in the 13 Heavens. This amazing doggie is available on a mug, ready to protect your soul from bad coffee, even in the afterlife. #xolosofinstagram #mexicoofficialdog #trececielosmugs #aztecdog #mexicocityhistory #xoloitzcuintli #xolos #aztecsecret #mexicandayofthedead #trececielosillustration #illustragram #mexicanart #mexicanillustration #mexicocity #xoloiscuintle #dogofaztecs #soononamug #dantepixar
