I was told to determine (or guess at) coat type, you examine the hair on the back of the front legs. If it's kind of wavy and forms a ridge, it's a rough. What method do you use to determine coat type? How accurate is the method? Adorable little chubs. Makes me want another.

this is the method i used...

i found we had 3 roughs 2 smooths... turns out we have 3 roughs 2 midi/confused coats!!! not sure how long they will be but not as smooth as a smooth however the 3 i thought were rough are "proper" roughs so i guess it worked well.... this time!

massive kisses to yummy norm

Cheri, when do freckles appear? I know North American breeder pride themselves on producing freckleless Saints, but I absolutely adore freckled muzzles.

they start to come at about 2 weeks old...

to be fair i prefer no freckles at all... but my favorite dog in the whole world has a fair few ....

i dont really mind freckles on the face but cant stand a heavily spotted dog ( on its white fur of the legs) just not for me at all

I adore a freckled muzzle, but like you, I'm not partial to ticking on the legs. Are the two genetically related (same gene)?
