In Mexico....... the word for a female dog is perra but I haven't heard it used with hijo de. I guess everyone still uses the word for whore(that 4 letter word has so many meanings in the spanish language).

I love House, and I can empathise with the Little Einstein thing, although in my case it's more Spiderman, Postman Pat, BBC Cbeebies, Barnie and the likes of them.
