I was emailed not once, but twice, about hairless dogs yesterday. That should say something. Some sad news, some better news. Why do you care about hairless dogs? Because it’s weird, and they’re funny. And I feel like writing about it.
Updates on the Obama puppy situation! The nation of Peru has offered to send one of its national treasures, the Peruvian Hairless Dog to Malia and Sasha. Pictured below is the little guy, named “Ears”. If the Obama family accepts the gift, the dog’s official name will be Machu Picchu. Haha. I’m going to Peru fairly soon…anybody want me to bring one back?
So here’s the sad news. The world’s ugliest dog, Gus, a Chinese Crested Hairless, died Monday at the age of 9. All dogs go to heaven, Gus. We’ll miss you little guy. RIP. He was so ugly, he was cute.
No word on the replacement for the prestigious world’s ugliest dog title. But leave it to me to keep you updated.
I’m just spreading the love for hairless dogs to the rest of the world. Just trying to end the discrimination against them and make this world a better place. Hairless dogs are moving on up! Soon all you haters will have them too!

Well, not exactly. But even if they did, a poodle would have more experience than Sarah Palin. SNAP.
Here’s the real story. Barack and Michelle promised precious Malia and Sasha that after the election they would get a puppy. Aww! So the American Kennel Club held an election–42,000 people voted–to see what breed should be the presidential pup. And the poodle won. Apparently the Obamas have allergies (just like my family! Talk about identity politics…), so that helped narrow down the breeds to choose from. I’ve been following this story for awhile, because the Chinese Crested Hairless was one of the options. For those who know me or have read the blog before, I am the proud owner of a hairless dog. My baby boy, Dr. Seuss, is perfect. Look how cute Chinese Crested puppies are:
Yeah, you want one too. PUT BARACK OBAMA AND A CHINESE CRESTED IN THE WHITE HOUSE.
Oh, and they didn’t hold an election for a pet for old Johnny. This is because he and Cindy already have–I am not making this up–24 pets. So that’s 3.4285714 pets per house?

Watch this and try not to smile and maybe weep a little with joy:
Could this family BE any more perfect? I’m seriously high on their cuteness. Obamas for First Family!
