Outer coat: how and when?

Hey guys,

I'm sure some/most of you know I've got a little baby girl, Emma. She's 14 weeks old tomorrow and she's still soft puppy fur. My question is when can I expect that soft fur to "become" the double coat that adult shepherds have? She's white, if that matters.

Overnight, she will get a wavy stripe down her tail, up her back. You'll be able to feel the difference as well. It should happen shortly and the teething begins at the same time. A hard transition period for puppies-hope your feeding a really nutritious diet!

That's actually why I asked!

I brush Emma every night, per the Monks' suggestions, and noticed today that there was this strip of coarser hair down her back and was curious if that was her coat coming in or indicative of something else. It wasn't there yesterday, so I guess you're right about overnight

Thanks again! I'd take a picture but the whole solid white thing, I can't get a good picture for my life.
