Claudia Galvez, 38, director of the Friends of the Peruvian Hairless Dog Association, has written a letter to the U.S. embassy in Lima explaining why she'd like to give a hairless puppy to Barack Obama's family. "They do not cause any type of allergy and are very friendly and sweet," she says. Galvez has a 4-month-old puppy to send to the Obama family, and she calls it Ears. "But if we send it to the United States, its official name will be Machu Picchu," she says. A dog that doesn't shed and clearly needs a Federally-funded wardrobe could be perfect for the White House!
