Oh my! I just realized that Coal has a bizillion mats and I have no idea what to do. I tried to brush a couple of them out with a metal comb but he acted like it hurt so I stopped. What can I do? I feel terrible! Do I need to have him shaved or can I work them out? Also, I am hoping that he is in this condition because at 10 months he is blowing his puppy coat???? Will this be a continuous worry?
