Elli May update and another question
« on: February 29, 2008, 03:23:50 pm »
Hello everyone. Well Elli May's eating problem disappeared the day after my posting about her not eating well. I guess it was a phase as now she is ravenously consuming all she can get. We upped her meals by about a half a cup as we figure she is going through another growth spurt. She will be 10 months in two days. Wow! She is growing up fast.
I do however have a question regarding her coat. She is a mantle great dane but right now she looks like she is "rusting". There looks to be a brownish tint to her coat. It is also a bit dry looking. Is this just a winter coat thing? It looks like she is black with deep brown "highlights" does that make sense? Someone else wouldn't even notice but as her momma of course I do. Any ideas? Appreciate it!

Mom of Six kids a nice blend of skin and fur
Wife to a dh who is also a nice blend of fur and skin. He's an Animal!! hee hee

Hey there,

Brutis doesn't get the flaky skin, but when he is stressed out he sheds.  Sheds all over not in chunks or anything like that.  As he gets older it has slowed down a lot.
