This has to be blowing coat...

I brushed Gracie last night and this is what I got. She is only 7 1/2 months old...so I know she is young...but this is crazy!
I gave her a bath today...so in the last one she is all clean and white (except for the staining that doesn't come off)...and of course, in her favorite spot (the neezer tree hahahaha)...
Also, her fur on her back is coming in really kind of coarse...not silky, not cottony, what is that called? Will this be how her adult coat is?

Gracie is so cute in her fancy Neezer tree! I bet she's the only one with one of those!



Yep, welcome to coat blowing!

I don't know what to say about her hair coming in coarse...someone knowledgeable will answer that, I'm sure.

Yeah, I have suspected she has been in the beginnings of blowing coat for the last month...this is crazy...how long does it last?
As of right now we have every mat out! YAY I have had a couple of piles similar to this in the the last week...maybe not quite as large...but close!

They've said on other posts that the CB stage lasts up to 9 weeks.

Keep up the good work! And, keep up your stock of treats!

Believe it or not that doesn't look like much to me. It would be the tip of the iceberg for Milo. I wish I had taken photos of the hair I've had to cut or work out, and we're not finished yet. It's a nightmare. Worst part is, I have Bailey well into coat blowing at this point too. It isn't easy, but it does pass.

Gracie doesn't have a really thick coat...so I'm wondering if that makes a difference on the amount?
Geri, does Milo have a heavy coat?

Milo had a very heavy undercoat. Now -- not so much.
