Aww that's too bad. He is still such a handsome boy.

When Callie was younger she actually developed bald spots. The vet gave me some Omega 3 fatty acid oil to put on her food once a day. Her coat thickened up almost immediately! She just turned 9 mos. old and her coat looks about like Jacob's as far as length. It is taking forever for it grow long! I have heard that it can take up to 3 years for them to get their full coat. :?

Yeah, I've heard about the omega fatty oil. I've never tried it though. I've also read and heard it takes 2-3 years for long hair chis to get their full coat. My Jasmine has long hair on her ears, tail and around neck area, a skirt around her tushie area and a strip of longer hair right down her back and although the rest of her coat is longer than a smooth coat, it is still not very long.

Sorry Jacob did not do very well - but he is still a cutie. Give him time.

Jacob's coat is about right for his age truthfully. The omega3 will help and it is good for them. No dog is going to win everytime, yes there are standards for judges to use but each judge sees the standard according to their own interpretation. I have a friend that shows Dobe's and her boy was last in every class at a small show not long ago and walked off with two firsts and two 4 point major wins at a huge show a couple of weeks later. People who have been showing a long time will pick and choose shows based on who's judging their breed quite often.
