Mom is still into thinking I should be a show dog. Well, there is a few problems with that. The major one, of course, is my coat. Powder puff Cresteds have LONG flowing hair. My hair all got cut off last fall, so it is not long yet. And, I have stains... being a white dog who runs and plays in the muck and mud is the pits when it comes to keeping my hair white. As you can probably tell from many of my photos, when my hair gets wet my feet and belly are pretty rusty colored. Soo, Mom bathed me EVERY SINGLE week with some special white shampoo. I didn't think I looked much whiter, and that stuff smelled just like bleach!!! Well, Mom bathed me last week with her regular old shampoo and suddenly, I was way, way whiter and my coat felt much softer and silkier. Sooo, Mom is thinking the special bleaching shampoo was washing all the natural oils and protectants off my coat and making it stain WORSE, not less.
