Not Just Another Pretty Face
But four-pound Twiggy, 7, is no mutant mutt. She's a rare breed, a purebred Chinese Crested (no joke—someone actually wanted this look). Patsy and her husband, Jon, a Navy engineman first class, inherited the dog from Patsy's mother when she moved into a no-pets-allowed apartment building. "I didn't want to touch her at first," recalls Patsy, "but she wanted so much attention it was hard to resist."
Others, however, find Twiggy quite resistable, so much so that Patsy doesn't take her out for walks much any longer. Twiggy's hairless body has warts, and sometimes she has severe acne because of her sensitive skin. In the sun, Twiggy, who is pinkish in color, burns so easily that Patsy has to treat her three times a day with sunscreen. Children have been known to drop their schoolbooks in alarm upon sighting Twiggy, and once, when she barked through the car window at a drive-in, the waitress screamed and burst into tears. "It makes me a little sad," says Patsy of some people's reactions. "Twiggy thinks she's beautiful."
