Anthony has got a bit of a skin problem. He can’t stop scratching and it’s driving him, and everyone else, mad. A trip to the vet is the only answer and surely nothing the vet could do can be as bad as the dreadful itching. Nothing, that is, except having all his fur shaved off except his head and tail. Whoever heard of a dog with no fur? Poor Anthony is convinced that everyone is going to laugh at him. Definitely notso hotso! At least that’s what Anthony thinks, but he, like everyone else, is in for a surprise.
