    Default Jasper

    I would love it if Abbey's hair was whispy and fly-away! Instead, she looks like some prehistoric wooly mammoth, her hair is SO thick!! I've yet to meet a Cav that has a coat like hers, she's just a furball--there's nothing sleek about it.

    Jen - is Abbey a tri?

    Both of mine are and Jake has lots of black hair and is super thick-coated. In fact, we used to call him the wooly mammoth!

    When he was a baby his hair would stand straight up like Jasper's. Now it's so long it falls into a really goofy looking poindexter part. We have the breeder trim it or else it falls down in his eyes.

    Default Abbey

    Yup, she's a 3 yr old tri. When she was a baby her hair was a bit thinner, and then after she was spayed it got considerably thicker and woolier. Even her feathering on her legs is super thick, it doesn't feather, it just hangs all heavy...my mom says she's got flaps on her arms like her grandma!!!
    We typically have her groomed short, it's just easier with how much we're outdoors, etc. otherwise it's nearly impossible to keep her healthy and clean with how thick her coat is. Plus, she seems more comfortable.

    I can just picture that!

    Both boys are really beginning to get in a lot of coat. Jaspar just looks so disshevelled though -- you can see the fine hair all sticking out as the adult coat comes in. These guys seem to get their coats really late -- they are both over 18 months now.

    Black hair is always thicker and woolier I think. Th heaviest coats I have seen have all been on black and tans.

    For those with doglets with heavy, woolly coats, have you tried a Mars Coat King? It's a stripping knife, and removes the dead hair.

    They are available from

    http://<br /> <a href="http://www.h...Kings.html</a>

    They look horrific, but if you run it across your arm, you will see that it is perfectly safe. They are very easy to use, and really keep the coat under control. I used to have to have Rupert clipped, but don't anymore as I use this instead {I just clip him underneath as he is unable to cope with too much "pulling about"}

    I use the 20 blade ex/fine.

    I love to see these tufts of puppy coat as they disappear.
    Many years ago a boy I had developed them on his cheeks, rather like a handlebar moustache. We nicknamed him Pilot Officer Prune !
    Best wishes,
