Re: Thick coats

Not too sure. Sasha's seems the same as our next door's red girl?

Is Mollie outside a lot? It may be that she is just keeping a thicker winter coat than your friends boxer?

The other boxer may be in a lot of central heating, so it has kept it's summer coat and Mollie has her winter coat?

That's all I can think of sorry!!

Re: Thick coats

Re: Thick coats

Cool! There's another White Stuff member in Aberdeen too!

Nice to meet you! Sasha spends most of her time asleep too - I think its an occupation rather than a past-time!

Re: Thick coats

She 14 months. I put a reply up to your introduction in Whos who and I have just put a photo of her in the gallery (not to be confused with Jacquie's fostered Sasha!)

We got her when she was 5 months old from someone in Portgordon area. They couldn't cope with her and were locking her in the kitchen all day (or shed we found out) and were wondering why she was destroying everything! She ran away a lot and she was EXTREMELY hand shy when we got her, which makes me think they hit her too. It's taken a good few months, but it's like she never lived anywhere else. It took her a while to trust us though, and the first time she finally rolled over and let me stroke her belly I nearly cried! Wouldn't give her up for the world now!

Re: Thick coats

I agree with Yvonne. Whites do cast more. Doesn't matter the season.
Sasha has a really thick coat and it's longet than Blue's. Cant say if she had central heating I hope so cause she didn't get alot of warmth from her owner:smash6:

Re: Thick coats

Daz has a very soft coat, amongst all the Boxers that I have stroked, they are all more coarse than my white baby.

Hi to Molidoodle, i live in Aberdeen. We know Mintlaw with it's famous Italian Chippy.

Re: Thick coats

I wonder if it's down to the amount of times we bath our white babies compared to reds or brindles? Sasha's coat is fairly thick and soft, but then she gets plenty of baths.

Like Jill, most other boxers I stroke have shorter coarser fur, I dont remember if my last one was fluffy or not, and she had lots of baths too!

Sounds like us white owners are taking over the north east!!

Re: Thick coats

Hello Mollidoodle

I also have a molly but with a Y not IE. Mollys coat is a lot thinner than Tashas. Tash is white and Molly brindle - Molly is a wuss in the cold and wind and now has a fur lined jacket whereas Tash is rock hard and just gets on with it!

Take care, Paul

Hi
Katie is 4 1/2 months old now and a new coat is coming along, like a Boxer coarser coat and yes she is shedding like mad. I know its said that they shed more but Rosie has always shed her red hairs everywhere - she does it all year round so now we have red hairs everywhere plus lots of white ones. Although oddly enough I have noticed that Katies do seem longer but just slightly.

I use a hound glove which is quite good. If you use a proper damp chamoi leather 2-3 times a week it helps to keep the shedding down, plus gives a lovely sheen off the coat. Rather than buy a hound glove, an ordinary household rubber glove is quite effective as well.

How often do you all bath your white Boxers? I havent bathed Katie yet, just rub her down regularly with soft cloth.

Re: Thick coats

I bath Sasha when she needs it - which at this time of year can be once a week!! She hasn't had one since Christmas and she is still nice and sleek and shiny. She'll probably have one soon though - just to keep her soft.

There is a thread call "Keeping it White" where everyone talks about baths!! I got a lot of good advice from it.

Can't believe Katie is 4 1/2 months now!

Re: Thick coats

I find the "Hound glove" very effective and Daz loves it.
Like Karen, I will bath Daz when he needs it only, otherwise a good rub down with a damp cloth is all he gets. Hopefully this will keep all the coats natural oils within his fur.

Re: Thick coats

Is this the JML hound glove? Have seen something like that advertised, but want to make sure before I go an buy something completely useless!!!

If not, any ideas on where to buy a chammy glove? I can only find clothes and my pet shop doesnt sell anything that I can use on Sasha, just wire brushes etc! At the moment I use a horse brush - its really soft and does the job but I want something that gives her a little more shine!

Re: Thick coats

Yes, it is the JML hound glove from Poundstretcher. It is like a cotton glove but the front is coated with rubber and has blunt spikes that rake the coat. It really does remove loose hairs, and Daz loves the attention so much.

Re: Thick coats

I think the whites definately do have softer thicker coats.

Kirei's is very soft and thick - she is sooo cuddly - like a giant teddy bear, whereas Tia's is a lot coarser. Henry is sort of inbetween at the moment, he still has his soft puppy fur around his head and neck but lower down on his back it is getting quite coarse now - it is also going wavy????

Kirei does shed a lot more than Tia - all over everything - but luckily enough we have now got leather sofas so it just brushes straight off. When we first got Tia and Kirei we had cloth sofas that were a deep red colour and it was so difficult to get all the white hair out of them.

At home i usually walk around bare foot and a few times i have had a pain in my foot and when i look there is one of Kirei's hais in my foot like a splinter - they can be like little needles at times - which is weird because they seem so soft when you give her a cuddle.

After reading all your comments i would say the whites definately have thicker coats and shed more often than the coloured babies.

Caroline, Tia, Kirei and little Henry xxxx
