I am beginning to have a complex...
So, meeting a few of you this past August and seeing how little of a coat Posh has, I thought "am I doing something wrong?"
I thought maybe I was "over brushing" her and started to skip one to two days. Every time I skipped, especially the two days in between, she would have a few mats and I thought , "this isn't working..."
Most of you know the "equipment" I use is good: CC pin brush, CC buttercomb, CC fine face comb...and I bathe her about every two weeks.
I feed her well too...even put in probiotic supplement, flax seed oil, and have lately been giving her a dried fish treat for more Omega 3's.
I look at her and she looks perfect to me, but on Saturday when we were at the Fun Match, a breeder who knew Posh as a wee one, and the Fun Match judge asked, "Where did her coat go? or What happened to her coat?" something like that, I can't remember exactly because I felt like crap hearing something like that...
Posh's breeder responded "Well, that was her puppy coat."
Anyway, she isn't cottony or poofy or even seemingly "double coated."
I think she's perfect...but I admit it kind of made me sad to hear the comment.
