I recently bought CC Black on Black for my mini Rudy and used it this weekend. WOW! That stuff is really purple/black! It did a great job but just wondering with the cost if I could dilute it. I find myself repeatedly putting some in my hand for say a leg or tail or ears, top knot etc. so I'm going to blow through this stuff fast. Loooooooooooooong time ago when I had my first mini I spent two days with a breeder learning to groom and she used a mixture of dish soap and mineral oil for her dogs.
