Carlos, love your tangos.  Fantastic!

 

He runs with the hares and hunts with the hounds.= He pretends to be a friend of everyone.  (Imagine a politician who has lunch with union leaders and at dinner he then gives a speech at the Chamber of Commerce against unions and labor.  Or maybe you are talking about a judge who says he believes in punishing criminals severly, but he belongs to an organization that is trying to legalize bank robbery and kidnapping.  A man can be a hare (lebre) or a hound (cachorro), but he can't be both and remain honest.) 

 

 

A hare lip is a rare lip.

I've never heard this expression.  "A hare lip" (lábio leporino) an odd thing to make jokes about.
