Default Extra scruffy... in heat - is that normal?

Grace's bleeding started Wednesday. So I remarked the calendar LOL

But she is extra scruffy.... Even daily grooming...she just looks so scruffy. She looks nice while grooming, but the second I let her down it's like I never groomed her. Her hair is in her eyes, her tail is all wiry. She has a grumpy look on her face.

If a dog can look bloated and moody... Grace has it down pat.

Do I just keep up with the normal grooming routine until it ends? She will go back to her normal "smoother" look after, right?

I'm suppressing the urge to shave her LOL Telling myself it is only a few weeks and she will be back to her pretty self....

She will be fine. with Babinka's heat I just let mother nature take its course. Babinka says make sure you give her the remote controller and a box of treats :-)
