Astra has had the best winter since I had her.........and she is looking FAB!

No word of a lie......her winter coat is coming out in clumps and underneath she's nicely rounded and has a "beautiful" summer coat......it's coming back really flea-bitten, soft and shiny.......

Last year she looked really manky in summer and I was a bit worried that she might be starting off with cushings coz her summer coat was really yuk.....still a bit "too" hairy for a summer coat - if you know what I mean.

Am wondering if it's the slight change in diet and the fact that I put her rug on really late, and took it off really early.......I might of kept it on too long last year or summat. And, I've made extra time to take her walkies out in-hand all this winter........last year she looked a bit bony round her hips........

Anyhoo......no matter what......she looks and feels really good, although VERY, VERY patchy where she's still got her long winter coat..........

Just thought I'd waffle LOL
