Carson and Ekeko

My unit here is within a larger private complex where the owner has a fondness for the Peruvian hairless breeds. Ruby, Raio, and Ekeko have full run of the property much of the time and Ekeko is fond of napping on my doorstep. Carson is not allowed out, but keeps an eye on things.

The name Ekeko is borrowed from the pre-Columbian civilization god of abundance and prosperity who lives on in the folklore of Peru and Bolivia. The hairless breeds from this region are of a very old line. It was odd the first time I touched one of them and felt skin instead of fur. Raio and Ekeko are both fond of me, Ruby is working on it.

Ekeko is depicted as a stout figure laden with valuables, often smoking a cigarette.
