Merry turned 2 in August and this last week I swear she is going through another coat change! She mats and tangles even with a good combing every night and looks scruffy again almost instantly. I'm tempted to shave her down again and have her wear a sweater when it's chilly. Anyone else go through something like this? Maybe I'm just crazy....

I'm not in standard territory but I'm sure I've seen members post on this.

My Poppy went though a second coat change beginning at age 2.......she changed from black to blue. I had known she would be blue but during her puppy coat change very little of her color changed. I had a horrible time with clippers jamming up and her coat matting badly but we made it through the second coat change by keeping her coat VERY short with a 5 blade on the body, 10 blade face feet and sanitary! This second change took about 10 months....hang in there.

Is she as sweet as she looks?? I cannot get enough of your precious girl.

Is it possible she's just finally reaching the end of her first coat change? Peggy's started with a bang (matted ears!!) and then progressed much more gradually after that. At 16 months, her body is finally starting to resemble her wiry rump. It's clipped with a 5, so luckily no matting.
