Question Blacks

I do not know what it is with Kai's black coat but whether it be full coat or mid length, when the grass is wet, the water travels up his legs quite high .... and along with his mid-section, he looks like he has been dunked in the bath! The water seems to be 'sucked in and up' very quickly whereas with the others ranging from Golds to Sable, it's just their feet and maybe right at the very ends of the coat when long.

Lyn, you have black in Jackson, is he the same? Elaine, is it the same with Archie (albeit he is more grey than black)?

Came in with him earlier this morning and I just looked at him, shook my head and towel dried him ........ you would think it had been banging it down with rain but this was just the morning dew

Dolly is the same on her black bits! But takes forever to get wet when I bath her! How does that work!!

Toots hair takes ages to dry. Her coat soaks up water like a sponge.xx

Zali isn't black and wet grass etc seems to soak her, but at bathtime it tends to sit on her top coat.

Thanks all for your feedback. Likewise, I always find black takes longer to dry too - especially the ears and feet

If I take Archie out and it's only damp on the ground he seems to get soaked right up his legs and underneath his body. xx
