definately something to keep in mind. if you are loving your dog and feeding it properly [which it sounds like you are already doing], i wouldn't stress about having a particular coat. not all dogs in the same breed have the exact same look. the most gorgeous poodle i know has this gorgeous, shiny, wavy hair, not so much curly or puffed out.
