|Spanish term or phrase: muerto el perro se acabó la rabia|
|Hi Everyone. I want to say thank you in advance. Everyone on this forum has been so helpful. I have another saying for you. This is from a Castilian Spanish anthology of plays, the author wants a universal English. In this play an official has been murdered by a General and a Lieutenant in a grab for power. The General, has released two soldiers on leave who know more about the plot then they are letting on and are starting to blackmail him. |
General: Has escuchado teniente. Para fiarse de una india; en fin tiene razón; muerto el perro se acabó la rabia.
I'm not sure what we would say in English for this. Any ideas? Thanks again!
