Agree with MAC.

I thought sasha had something wrong with her diet or SOMETHING at 8 months old, she was loosing the 'shine' and had started going 'fluffy; on her back end and just didnt look right.

The breeder had a look at her and assured me the same as MAC was saying, the 'puppy' coat was dying and just needed to be stripped out.

So she did (with a mars comb) and, yes it worked. sashas coat was back to normal colour, shine and vitality.

anyways... thats my 2 cents.
