It has a signature whistle that resembles musical notes do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, si, in that order until fa louder and then down to the note itself. It is said that when the whistle is heard no danger near, as the Eurasian is far away but if you hear it because it&apos;s close. It is also said to hear his whistle is an omen of death itself. <br />
  2. 2. Eurasian legend started in the mid-nineteenth century and some scholars believe it was a form of social control that the tradition established to prevent men&apos;s infidelities.

  4. 4. The grandfather of the girl, who heard the fight, went in search of the victim, for all purposes, his son. Grandpa swore to punish the boy, his own flesh and blood, for the heinous crime he had committed ... against their own flesh and blood.<br />Was not long in finding it. Then tied him and gave him a barrage of lashes with a &quot;neck-sending&quot; typical of the plain. &quot;That&apos;s not being done to his father ... Damn you, pa &apos;toa&apos; life,&quot; he said.<br />To complete the sentence, pepper rubbed into wounds and took the dog to Turéco name after him. Until the end of time bite his heels.<br />
