Machu Picchu Offered to Obamas

Claudia Galvez, director of the Friends of the Peruvian Hairless Dog Association, has a 4-month old she's calling Ears, but says she will rename it Machu Picchu and give it to President-Elect Barack Obama and his family - if they will have it.

In his acceptance speech, Obama told his daughters they would be getting that dog they wanted. The problem, he later explained, is that 10-year old Malia is allergic to most breeds. The Peruvian Hairless Dog, a 3000+ year-old breed, does not cause allergic reactions in most people, according to the lore surrounding them.

The Peruvian Hairless Dog is hairless and often toothless and is depicted on ancient Peruvian pottery and ceramics.
