coat question

how should Riley's coat feel?

Right now at 5 months, her head is fluffy soft as is her legs and belly. it's shiny, but the fur on her back is coarse. just wondering if that's the way it's supposed to feel??

Sounds like a standard stock coat to me. That's how Frag's feels.

sounds like my dog. the coarse spot
is in the sacral region (i think that's
what it's called). it's where the tail
meets the body the rough hair
is in a 8" to 10" area.
