Thanks for the Nice Words my Friend! My Girlfriend also like your Funny Video, although she do not understand much. We looking forward for the Next one ;)
And it´s not very Difficult. Seems the same set construction, like German.
Easier to translate German into Portuguese, as English ;)

Brazilviking is she a whippit or iltian greyhound?
We call this a "vira-latas"....good translation would be "trash eater":D.
It's a street dog, no race, breed....
got my girl on an animal shelter 3 years ago. There are a lot of street dog here, specially on the cities that don't have the service of dog capture. The dogs breed between themselves, resulting in a crazi mix of shapes, colors, sizes....sometimes even looking like real races!
Thats not the first time that people think it is an italian greyhound!

Hmm I´am not Sure... Many words are Identical to hear, but the Sentence construction is different.
This makes Google Translator -->

English: what do you think / o que você acha
German: was denkst du / o que você acha
English with a German Sentence construction: what think you / o que você pensa

Any case, I keep the words only in a German sentence construction together ;)

And I think its a Nice Zombie Dog! Look at the Eyes in the Last Pic :D

Now I start to learn, tomorrow I can tell you more ;)
But in Germany, there are also still others Dialects so that you do not understand any.
For Example the Dialect from my Place ;)

English is a West Germanic language that originated from the Anglo-Frisian dialects brought to Britain by Germanic invaders and/or settlers from various parts of what is now northwest Germany and the Netherlands. Initially, Old English was a diverse group of dialects, reflecting the varied origins of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of Britain. One of these dialects, Late West Saxon, eventually became predominant.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_English_language

The Portuguese language developed in the Western Iberian Peninsula from Latin brought there by Roman soldiers and colonists starting in the 3rd century BC. Old Portuguese, also known as Galician-Portuguese, began to diverge from other Romance languages after the fall of the Western Roman Empire and the barbarian invasions in the 5th century and started appearing in written documents around the 9th century. By the 13th century, Galician-Portuguese had become a mature language with its own literature and began to split into two languages. In all aspects—phonology, morphology, lexicon and syntax—Portuguese is essentially the result of an organic evolution of Vulgar Latin with some influences from other languages.

^This is good information^
I studied Latin for quite some time, and most words in English can be readily recognized when reading Latin. It is the same with Spanish-originated languages.

I have read a bit and Wikipedia say that:
Portuguese have similarities to Spanish, Catalan, Italian, French and the other languages ​​of the Roman Empire. Especially in terms of grammar and syntax.
And the new English use terms, from more than 50 languages​​.
For Example:
Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Swiss German, and Russian.
But also from Arabic, Persian, Hindi, Japanese, Chinese, Indian and Australian languages​​.

No Wonder, that Portuguese is easier to translate ;)
