I think your tessa is gorgeous - regardless of the skin condition/smells etc.. you wouldnt call a kid ugly becauase it had ecsma or achne and because it did stinky farts! Ud take it to the drs and get treatment and thats the exact same as a dog. I love my meeko because hes so ugly lol I have a thing for animals that are so ugly theyr cute such as persian cats pugs bulldogs etc.
iv never had somebody say it to me though - how rude. I just had quite the oposite a lady from the street I live in has just met Meeko for the first time and im quite concerned at how much she loved him lol she said shes a dog psychologist (hay im thinkin of becoming friendly with her and getin tips and advice lol!) she kept repeatedly saying if you ever need to rehome him please knock and ask me first :/ I swear she is going to plot to dognap him haha.
