A Complete Solution to the Itchies (not for the faint hearted)

I said I wasn't going to blog again until after we returned from the shore, but I had to share some foreboding news with you! It all began when Mom received these pictures from her friend Roz in St. Paul, Minnesota. The photos are of one of her wires, Bobby, taken a few hours after having his bath. Mom laughed out loud when she saw these pictures, and you can see why, he sure is a funny wiry guy, dirty and mischievious looking for sure!

After Mom saw Bobby in a Tshirt, she asked his Mom, was that his "bathing suit"? No Roz responded, he wears the Tshirt to help his itchies! It's that dreaded time of year when most of us wires get the itchies allergy - Roz said wearing the Tshirt prevents Bobby from scratching himself to death or until he is bloody. I have been scratching a lot post botched haircut - so unfortunately, Bobby and Roz gave Mom an idea! She plans to get me a Tshirt! Oh no! I hate wearing clothes (even if a Tshirt will cover my awful haircut)! I did hear Mom say to Dad though, that most of my scratching or biting of myself from itchyness is centered on my legs and head. My greatest fear now is that they will graduate from Tshirt to THIS....
