The Obamas’ New Dog?

November 11, 2008

This is Macchu Picchu, a Peruvian Hairless Dog belonging to a family in Lima, Peru. It’s called a hairless dog because it is.

Its owners want to give the five-month-old pup to the Obama family, as Barack Obama pledged to buy his daughters a puppy if he made it to the White House, but one of his girls is allergic.

The president-elect said he would look into non-allergenic breeds, and preferred a pound puppy (“A mutt like me,” he said, and that’s his best line in a long time). I don’t think he was considering this wretched-looking creature.

Can you imagine having a hairless dog? It just strikes me as too strange to really think about.
