The hair has nothing to do with it - the length of it or the amount of it. Anyway, it would be next week before the groomer could get to him. So, Paul, being the great dad he is, took Oscar to see Dr. Harmon.
"Dry skin." Now that's pretty awful to have. That's why there's baby oil in the shower at home. The remedy is to use none-soap shampoo (for Oscar, though I'm sure it might help human dry skin...) Anyway, that and a teaspoon (or tablespoon?) of olive oil in his food.
He should feel much better. I know I do.
