In his victory speech, Obama told his daughters that they'd finally get the puppy they've always wanted. But the on the radio recently, I heard Obama say he needed a full-bred dog--not a mutt--because one of his girls is allergic to dogs.
The New York Times is also talking about Obama and his kids' pet allergies. And so are CafeMoms: sharebearII recently joked in The CafeMom Newcomers Club that Obama should get a pitbull without lipstick.
Meanwhile, my own twins are begging for a puppy. But I'm the same way: I'm allergic to pet fur. Even so, I have a love affair with my long-haired, cuddly cat. I'd love to get a dog that doesn't make me itch like I have fleas.

Do you or your children have pet allergies? What kind of hypoallergenic dog would you get?
