    The Seattle Times

  • Because the dog attained official recognition just over a month ago, too recent to have accumulated the championship points required for competition, there won't be Xolos going nose-to-nose against the usual pointers, setters, beagles, boxers, Pekingese and poodles in the show ring - at least not until next season.

    The Seattle Times

  • The former San Diego County high school star helped Tijuana reach the Mexican Primera Division with a standout performance earlier this year, and on Saturday he helped the Xolos to their first-ever Primera Division victory.

  • Biscotte, our Xoloitzquintli (Mexican hairless or "Aztec" dog) is about a year old and a beauty and when we were driving from San Cristóbal to Ajijic and were stopped at the Chiapas/Oaxaca state line by the army for a thorough inspection these army guys remarked to each other, thinking at that point that we would fail to comprehend Spanish, that the larger of the two dogs in the car was quite valuable and then thsy asked my wife how much a dog like that would cost so she told them that the dog was a gift and was defective anyway since she had floppy ears and Xolos without ears pointed upward were of no value which is true to the extent that they are ineligible for competition among showdogs but a bit of a lie as that has no negative impact on our love for this fabulous dog but my wife developed this routine response over the months we were in Chiapas because Mexicans and particularly indigenous folks in Chiapas are fascinated by these dogs which they immediately recognize and practically worship so we had become fearful that she might be stolen after about 20 requests by Chiapas folks that we sell her to them but what is fascinating is that at Lake Chapala this dog raises little if any interest among local townsfolk and that is good but I tell you these dogs have quite an edge to them and are not in the least bit boring.
