And Manuel has a very thick coat from belly down, but 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. As his coat in many places is very thick he loves being outside in the cold, but the SA-spots are exposed with dry skin 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  :wink:  and it works fine.
