Manuel has a very thick coat – belly down
From his neck to tail the SA has resulted in many spots without any under-coat.
Thererfore I had to find a solution that could work when we it is cold outside. He loves being outside in the cold, but the SA-spots are exposed and dry which makes me worry about frost damage there.
Friends of mine are skilled in spinning yarn from akita-wool and I will probably let them help me with spinning yarn so I can knit a “back-cover”. I have collected wool through out the years and have several paper sacks filled with white, beige and peach coloured wool.
But today I had to solve it in another way, I covered the bald SA-spots in a thick hand lotion and it works fine.
