Cry Havoc! And let loose the Dobermans of war!
Life is too short to take seriously, none of us get out of it alive.
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be.Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

The chupababras of Brazil is bipodal (stands on 2 legs). It's legs are longer than its arms. It also normally just sucks out the blood (none of this eating the head).
I think each Latin American nation has some version of the Chupa but IIRC the legend originated in South America. The beast that Brazilians usually depict remind me of a small furry T-Rex.

One day it's like a dog, but that's not horrible enough, so it gets spines, wings, God only knows what. When I spent time in Latin America guys would make excuses for themselves to make sure that no one thought them a coward. So, if your buddy was beaten up the guy who did it was 7' tall, and built like Andre the giant. It's a cultural thing. In Paraguay for example it's thought impolite to ask questions of people because they might not know the answer. If they don't they just make something up to save face. If you ever go there be sure to bring your own map. We asked directions and ended up 20 miles off course.
Wild dogs, coyote/dog crosses sure. Feral dogs, sure, but the "Goat Sucker" is more believable as an X rated movie than as a real creature.
And, in parting from you now,
This much let me avow---
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream:
Yet if hope has flown away In a night,
Or in a day, In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I'm sure it's probably not a Chupacabra but it's pretty weird looking nontheless.

Chupacabra Sighting Times Two
by Mike Krumboltz
A barn in Hood County, Texas, has become ground zero in the hunt for the chupacabra.
Earlier this week, animal control officer Frank Hackett shot and killed what was unquestionably one of the ugliest creatures to ever walk the planet. That much we know. What's less clear is whether or not the departed creature was the elusive goat-sucking beast.
Interestingly, that wasn't the only chupacabra sighting around Hood County. A second creature was spotted and killed several miles away. Both appear to be either hairless coyotes, extremely ugly dogs, or, who knows? Maybe the thing they call el chupacabra.
In the wake of the discovery, Web searches on "chupacabra sightings" and "chupacabra texas" both roared to life, as did Web lookups for "chupacabra translation" and "chupacabra definition." According to Virtue Science, the name literally translates to "goat sucker." Legend states that the beast would attack goats and suck their blood. Think of them as a less sexy version of "Twilight"'s infamous vampire Edward Cullen.
Officer Hackett was careful not to say whether or not this is really the mysterious beast. He's going to wait for the DNA tests before he makes up his mind. There is one thing he does know: "It wasn't normal." And another officer on the scene commented that she'd "never seen anything like it."

I have seen a story similar to that, MoonChild, on the show MonsterQuest the beast on the show looks very similar to that one and I believe MonsterQuest debunked it as a Coyote with mange

The chupacabras themselves are actually coyotes with severe infections by these mites, called sarcoptic mange, according to Barry O'Connor , an evolutionary biologist at the University of Michigan.
The story is Here
