Hi-

Eleanor is almost 8 months old and has some light feathering to her coat. I know her coat will continue to fill in for a while. She is mostly soft and silky but has a ridge of rougher coat running down her back. Will her coat stay this way or will it all even out one way or the other.

Thanks,
Cecelia

The "saddle" is her adult coat coming in. The double Golden coat is not supposed to be silky soft, but rather a downy, plush undercoat and a coarser, water repellent top coat, which is what you are seeing come in.
