I can see how thick it is! And definitely see how Samoyed like he is! Obviously though, because of the Spitz thing, but still, it's amazing! I haven't met many Spitz type dogs except for Samoyeds and I can so see the resemblance! And the mane.... I understand the thickness thing though, combing Lui I go against the coat as well, or otherwise it just goes over the top of the undercoat and I get nowhere! It's so annoying, you brush and there's still bits of fur stuck in, but we love them for it!
