Do You Believe in Hypoallergenic Pets?

While much of the nation was captivated with yesterday's inauguration, I couldn't help but continue to wonder about the First Dog-to-be, especially now that the family's all moved into the White House. The Obamas are still sticking to their rescue dog preferences, saying that either a Labradoodle or Portuguese Water Dog are top picks because of their daughter's allergies.

Some people consider those breeds to be "hypoallergenic" because of the limited shedding, yet others claim that the main allergen is excreted as sweat and secreted into the saliva making essentially no dog safe. What do you think?
