Default Is this tan creeping?

I just thought, "hey, what's that on Maisy's face?" and then I looked closer and said... "hey, is that tan creeping up Maisy's face?"

2009


Last week


Am I nuts or is it real?

Hard to say. Two different sides of the face. But Xena's coloring and shading changes from year to year as she ages. It could certainly be "creeping" as you note.

It looks pretty much the same on the other side, now, too.

ETA: Here's an older picture of that side of her face.

When that picture was taken, she was about a year and a half. In the last picture I added, she was around two years.

IF tan is going to "creep" it usually does it very fast within the first year and then slows down dramatically and finally stops (at least in dogs I've owned) around 2 and a half years.

Kechara had normal "doberman style" tan points on her face at 3 months old, and now look at her.

Sloans ran crept from puppy-1.5 or 2 year or so. Backups mask seems to be tanning a wee bit and he's almost 3. Very odd!

I would say no. Like Keechak, the creeping tan I've seen starts like a traditional tri (dobe kind of markings) then by the first year they at least have a full tan face. Some creeping tan papillons end up looking sable in the end. Think of a GSD and the way their black recedes.

Innnnnteresting. I never knew that, I thought creeping tan was something that happened gradually as the dog continued to age. She's about four and a half now. Still, something clearly is happening so it will be interesting to see if it is just a weird transient thing or what. She is starting to get some gray hairs on her chin and along her lips already, but these hairs are really obviously tan so I don't think she's graying on her face. FREAK DOG.
