Peruvians Offer Bald Dog To Obama
"Peruvians crazy about their national dog, a bald and often toothless breed popular among Incan kings, offered Monday to send a hypoallergenic puppy to the Obama family.
U.S. President-elect Barack Obama has promised daughters Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, a new pet for the White House. But Malia is allergic to most breeds, he said Friday as speculation swirled about the dog the family would choose."
Peruvians may be crazy about their national pooch, but most kids, and many adults, would recoil in horror if this ugly creature comes their way.
Hairless dogs have oily skin and they leave unsightly stains in sofas, beds and chairs. The White House shouldn`t look like the pad of a dirty dude who lives in a trailer home.
A kid needs a doggie that he or she can cuddle with, only a serial killer would cuddle with this ugly canine.
President George W. Bush has set a high standard for cute and adorable White House dogs. Barney, the current presidential pooch, is the cutest thing on four legs. President-elect Barack Obama shouldn`t let us down, by accepting such an ugly dog. In the words of Sarah Palin, he should tell the Peruvians: Thanks, but no thanks.
