Default #%&#@*%# mats!!!!

Thought I had avoided coat change horrors, but no such luck!
Molly has started matting.......just tiny spider mats and frizzys for now, but it's a constant battle!
It's a good thing she falls asleep while I'm cussing...ARG!!!! OOPS! I mean brushing!

I'm so scared of this coat change that is coming. Max is almost 8 months and I'm scared to death. Lol Obviously, this is my first ever Spoo.

There's easy way to deal with coat change- put them in a short clip. Seriously makes life way easier.

Bella has really nice coat- cept her stomach still *Sigh*

For a pretty coat like that, well the brushing I am sure is worth it!!! I better get to practicing with my new one as one thing she doesn't love at the moment is brushing. I was planning to do it everyday but it's turning out to be every other day but she is doing better as long as I have food n treats.

Hmmm you know you should consider showing cause you can grow coat lol. I found weekly bathing also helps during coat change as clean hair demats easier

Too bad there isn't a 'almost pure breed' category LOL! I'd show her in 'Best of Coat' HaHa!
Yeah, she does get bathed every week and brushed usually 2x a day!

She is beautiful!


Going through the same thing with Sandy. I'm so tempted to start cutting. I'm actually thinking about trying to put her in a puppy cut but I'm afraid it will look really bad. Sandy will be 1 soon and I haven't touched the hair except for minor trimming of the hind end, a bit on the belly and a goof up on the chest.
