There is quite the difference in coat care. Goose blows her coat as well, but five minutes with a rake and she's looking sparkly, lol. However, Aesop's coat isn't horrible, aside from being really time consuming for baths (I always completely dry with the forced air dryer) and when he blows his coat. He has a proper coat and it's never been clipped down, so there's no matting, etc.
On the Shar pei front, Goose's tag that she usually wears reads "Not a Shar pei" lol.
