OHHH! Ok! Makes a difference for sure o-o Such little things xD If I wasn't writing this down. I would probably be lost hahaha!

It is stunning!!! My first guy had a pure black face, and I adored it. Second one barely had a mask at all (he really just had a small amount of black on his muzzle), and Koda has some mask. But I always love dogs with dark faces. Some of my favorite forum dogs are Rei's Trent, Liesje's Nikon, and 4score's Walter. I just adore watching the pictures posted of them

LOL he's also wet and fluffed in that picture. He actually has less coat than Pan (pure working lines). I don't like too tight or too short of a coat because they tend to look dry (especially here where it is cold and dry a lot and we are battling itchies all winter) and I think a nice coat gives a more fluid, smooth look to the dog. A tight coat is going to show every imperfection. I don't need a plush coat in terms of a fluffy show line dog but I like there to be some length and luster to the coat. I don't find any difference in terms of care.

Nikon's coat is just starting to come back in, hopefully in time for his breed survey, and he's finally got a little "pants" going on!

It is the WORST when they lose their pants!

When Mirada goes into season, she looks like she has some horrible thyroid issue going on because her coat just starts falling out in clumps. Her belly and back side go completely nekkid, and I just hide her away until she has hair again x.x

Luckily Nikon doesn't have the extremes of being in heat (or nursing a litter) but when he's out of coat I can brush him for an hour and only get one brush full. I wish he had a *little* more coat because he's been very slow to mature physically, which is not a bad thing but sometimes I think he looks a little scrawny and narrow. When it's damp outside (like if we're training and it just rained or is kind of misty) he looks better because the humidity gives his coat more body.
