And Kaden usually spends alot of time in the house, once we move this weekend he will get alot more outside time, since we have a more secure yard and it is also subdivided into different areas for the dogs. I do need to keep up on the shaving every week too, Right now, I do it once every 2-3 weeks(because i am a bad mommy)Frostfire - I shave him every week whether we are showing or not and we spend a lot of time playing fetch in the back yard, so he gets a lot of sun exposure. His skin pigment is BEAUTIFUL. It really stands out against the pink skin of the ones who never get outside or have less pigment in general. I am wondering if it will lose some color over the winter. It is harder to get outside when the sun is shining since it gets dark so early, and it seems to be cloudy a lot. We will see!
