After President-elect Barack Obama was asked about a "first dog" at his first presser after the election, he said that he needed a hypoallergenic mutt. Now Peruvians want to send him a Peruvian Hairless dog (which BoRev, expert as he is on Venezuela, calls "ugly").
I don't know, though. I thought this guy I met at the ruins of Huaca Pucllana in the Miraflores neighborhood of Lima last year was a pretty cool punk-rock-looking pooch. I think the Obama family should get one. Besides, it's just another thing that would piss off the right wing: a little immigrant dog.
