Everyone there knows how to pronounce Xoloitzcuintli

Look, not every dog can have an easy name like Golden Retriever or Pomeranian. There are breeds like the Coton de Tulear, the Portuguese Podengo Pequeno, and the most difficult to pronounce, the Xoloitzcuintli. After having a pro say the breed name very slowly for me over and over, I think I've figured out the exact pronunciation. I also learned that it's completely acceptable to call the dog a Xolo (Sholo) for short.
