Thank you for the link! Poor unfortunate tails, thankfully I'm not involved in showing dogs!

Mine usually do not for a heat, but I have had some hormonal hair loss during raising a litter.

What did I see in the old ancient Lassie movie? Lindseed oil in the water bowl? Something like that to help the coat.

Now I have to pull out the Lassie movies again. The little girls did not like them because the dog is in danger of being killed in all of them most of the time.

Blowing coat is one thing. Though, when showing I am sure it is just as awful as this hormonal, post-pregnancy hair loss, It is exasperating!!! Jenna is going to be BALD by the time her pups are 8 weeks old. Her first litter, she lost all the hair on her tail. All of it. It looked like a rat tail. And she has a beautiful tail.

Ah well. Look at me admiring my dog's tail. If it isn't on thing...

And yes, they do tend to bring each other in.

selzer Lassie was a year in the middle of March, and Karma was a year old in the end of January. Why oh why did they have to come in together?

I just asked the trainer if I could bring Mufasa to the next three classes. He will be 7 weeks old Saturday, so not quite 8 weeks on Tuesday.

At least he won't come into heat! Probably put Babs in on Thursday, though she is due to come into heat at any time.

dogfaeries Tell me about it! Sage came in heat this morning. It hasn't even been 5 months! She usually goes 7-8 months. I had to pack up Russell and take him to his breeder's house after work, because I don't want to deal with an intact boy here. He's in heaven at her house, and has already found a new best friend there - Sage's sister.

I'm not too sad about the big ol' boy being gone for awhile. The girls really need a break from his rowdy, obnoxious, teenage self. He'll be 15 months old in a day or two. He's seriously obnoxious right now.
