It’s times like these that make diplomats wish we all had draconian quarantine laws like the British. A group of Peruvians has offered to donate a Peruvian Hairless Dog to the Obama family.
“We want to give a male puppy to Obama’s daughters, so they get to experience all the joys of having a dog but without any allergies,” Claudia Galvez, 38, director of the Friends of the Peruvian Hairless Dog Association told Reuters.
The Scottish Terrier and Dog News isn’t sure why the bit about it being a male is so important. Or why Ms. Galvez doesn’t get that this breed might not be a little girl’s first choice. Or just what Miss Manners would do to avoid a diplomatic incident and politely turn down this gift.
