They taste extra good with a little ceviche and lime.

Yeah were's the pic? I would do a search but I can't copy and paste and the name is to hard to remember. From the description though I would guess it looks something like my roomates last girlfriend.

Is this where that stupid "Mexican Rat" urban legend came from?
2002-02-19 01:31:45 AM  
What flavor is this dog?
2002-02-19 01:32:45 AM  
Tastes like chicken...

In Kolacky's pic, their eyes look like this aborted pig-fetus we had in a jar in my senior biology class.
2002-02-19 01:35:49 AM  
Mmmmmm... aborted pig-fetus....

"The dogs once were considered a delicacy by the Aztecs.."

Good enough for Montezuma, good enough for me.

Yo quiero Dianabol.

Other points:

The Aztecs, they were fockeeng notz, senhor.

Anything that displaces chihuahuas is worthy of a constitutional amendment to mandate it.

Mexico isn't as bad as South Central.

America is Babylon. Everything is about ownership and material wealth. No better than magpies or weaver birds.

So THAT'S what's in those burritos...

Xolos are hideous creatures, really. But the photos you've found of them are unusually bad ones of the toy variety. Toy Xolos are easily the worst sort. The original ones have, at least, some small measure of dignity.

[image from user.tninet.se too old to be available]

For less (a LOT less) though, you could buy an American Hairless Terrier, which is superior in one particular way: The hairlessness gene of the AHT is autosomal recessive, not semilethal dominant. What does that mean? Well, AHTs have true hairlessness, instead of the tail-and-head tufts of Xolos, and they don't have genetic problems with their skin or teeth. (Xolos are born, I'm surprised the article negelected to mention, with severe dentition issues. They're usually missing a number of teeth. It's caused by their hairlessness.)

And from a personal standpoint, I think AHTs are much cuter.

But they lack the exotic appeal of Xolos, being a fairly recent development, comparable to the Sphynx cat. Ah, well.

Yes, I'm a dog geek. Sad, huh?

Dogs need lots of hair to cover up their penises. Hairless dogs are PORNO dogs.
2002-02-19 08:49:52 AM  
this is inneresting to me cause I am alergic to dogs! Maybe if i get a hairless dog i wont sneeze! holy crap!

These things look more like a bad statue standing on someone's lawn.

My Basset hound kicks ass... heh.
2002-02-19 10:23:03 AM  
Just a tip: Saying things like "tastes like chicken" or "they taste extra good with a little ceviche and lime" EVERY SINGLE TIME THERE IS AN ARTICLE ABOUT SOME SORT OF ANIMAL is NOT FUNNY. We got it the first time and it wasn't funny then either. If that's the best you've got, just shut up.
2002-02-19 10:24:02 AM  

xolos arent that bad.
but theyre mexican, which means they like to hang around on your driveway, under old cars
2002-02-19 10:42:06 AM  
Tastes like IckyMettle's Mom.
2002-02-19 10:48:23 AM  
Hairless and muscular eh?

Shibas are cool:

2002-02-19 03:18:48 PM  
I used to own one, believe it or not. Petting one feels like putting your hand on someone's thigh.

They get zits, too. Have to wash Xolos all the time to prevent 'em, and even that doesn't always work.

Nuthin beats the JRT (Jack Russel Terrier).
2002-02-19 10:08:19 PM  
I'm thinking about a short-haired collie, myself.
2002-02-19 10:49:40 PM
