Re: how about those winter coats

Mine always have. Morgan didn't spend much time outside last winter and had a very full coat - which you don't really notice until it falls out all over the house!

It rarely gets below zero here, most winters it doesn't go below 10 deg. Where I lived in Mass, it was colder on average. I didn't notice much difference in coat when we moved.

Re: how about those winter coats

Depends on where you live, I would think in Michigan dogs would get a very heavy coat. Suppose that if the summer was cool-ish and the dogs didn't spend much time outside, they wouldn't loose their winter fur and it would appear they didn't grow a winter coat.

Morgan is a close coat so it's easy for me to see how much coat she gets - she looks like a bigger bitch in March compared to how she looks right now.

Which brings me to a quandary - my house was particularly hairy last time I cleaned. I know it's not Otto's becuase his fur is black or red (also congregates around his crate) and Morgan has banded sable fur. It seems to me that she blew out a bunch of coat last week during all the rain. It's been very humid like April where the week before it was cool like it should be.

Yes, Riddick grows a winter coat, he sheds all summer than as soon as fall hits his coat stops shedding and bulks up!
