    Default how to keep them white?

    Hello everyone!

    Bifi's real snow was a couple of days ago (snow came to us very late. we're experiencing the warmest winter for the past century). I always thought he's white but against those snow his real color showed...he's yellow! LOL. How do you keep those white fur white? I do "spongebath" him everynight with wipes (but not since it snowed). I also don't want to give him a bath because drying him in this temperature would be a challenge. It'll take forever to dry him with towels. I don't wanna risk him getting sick either. He is terrified of the blowdrier. Any ideas, suggestions please? Thank you very much in advance.

    Here are a couple of Bifi's pictures playing outside in the snow and loving it. You cannot see that he's jaundice from those pictures tho .

    Hahaha we have the same problem too. Put on a jacket so you don't see?

    Maybe it's me but sometimes I think he looks cleaner after a good brushing.

    I have a 98 percent white EB. And he is outside playing in the snow, he looks off white and he gets bath at least once every two months. And in the Spring, summer and fall he gets once a month bath. We don't let him out after bath til he's completely dry. Besides, he's 99 percent inside dog. So it's normal, at least, from my point that my EB is not "snow white". There are many different white.

    I find Meeko's furr looks yellow when he is due a bath too so your not on your own
    In the past iv used a shampoo made for white dogs (cant think of the name sorry!) It was sold and reccommended in my local groomers but I havnt used it for a while. It did work though until he rolled in the mud again xx

    Molly 'yellows' over time.. I like to think of it as natures bath alarm. We give her a bath about every other month and she's back to her white-ish color.

    We use a shampoo that was recommend on this forum. I'll look at it tonight and get the name.. but its super gentle on bulldog skin. As for bathing in cold weather, we do it all the time. We just don't let them go outside before they are dry (This is easier for EB's then some long hair breeds )
