I'm really enjoying this phase of Willow's coat. When she was younger the undercoat would matt easily while her coat got longer as she grew. I combed her daily. Then she blew her coat between her first heat and her first birthday and spay. That meant bagfuls of undercoat every day and the topcoat thinning. Now her coat has changed, the undercoat doesn't matt much unless there's a burr or other foreign body. She's becoming a very easy dog to groom. I don't have to brush the hair off of my clothes either and I can once again wear black. So, is this typical?
