    Finnie definitely has a fitted coat at this point...even Piper at 9 months had more coat that Finnie has. I'm hoping that now that the colder weather has arrived (uggghhh...only November and snow is here to stay) that Finnie will get a thicker coat.

    Elise has ZERO coat. We entered a show and she looked downright naked next to the other entry :(. And on top of that, she just finished her first heat which means she’ll lose the coat she had in a couple months. Sigh.

    OH no! Maybe she'll coat up fast or not lose too much coat. I don't know how the breeders manage with their girls (or what products they use)...I've seen some with less coat than Finnie that look so poofy!
