I know what you mean. Is it as cold in the Land of Enchantment as it is here in Maine?
Ahab looks fluffy, but has smegma down his back legs, and if you lift his heavy mane: dandruff that I can't get out. It's hard to brush too, because of static electricity. I have to spray my brushes with Show Sheen, and that is only if I've remembered to bring it, otherwise, it will all be frozen. There must be a good dry shampoo out there somewhere. Poor us!
