Default Strange Markings

I know we've done this before but it's still fun so what the heck. What are some cool/maybe not seen markings on your dog?

Mia has a lot.

#1 is this spot that I call her 'beauty mark'. I even forget it's there because when she's looking straight at you you can't see it. It's on the right side of her muzzle.

All her whiskers are white except in that spot.



2. The black spot on her side is actually brown underneath.

3. Mia's coat is ticked throughout but it never shows up on camera for some reason.

She's covered in spots!

Especially along her spine:

Summer is pretty well what you see is what you get but she is also ticked all over her body.

You can kind of see it here around her hip. If you part her coat she is brown-tinted.

Caleb has some black hairs scattered around his body. As in one here, one there. There's probably as many as Mick had, but Mick's were all in one place and looked like a spot of grease.

Cobain's got a fairly unnoticeable spot on his left side.
Incidentally, it seems all his side shots are taken from his right. grr.

He doesn't have the full white ruff around his neck. But he does have a small white spot in the middle of the solid yellow on that half of his neck.

It doesn't show up the greatest in pictures, and isn't always apparent just because it's so small. It sort of in line with the white on his leg but further up the neck.
This is the only picture I can find where you can sort of see it.

Rigby's just a weirdly marked dog in general.
Since I have gotten her, the brown colouring has been slowly taking over her entire body.
Covering both the white and the black markings.
The black has also grown over the white, and her ticking has gotten much more apparent over the years.

In this shot you can see how the brown has taken over her muzzle (she used to be white much further back than her whisker line), and how it's starting to move into the black around her eyes - Which used to be solid black. It's also taking over her underside.


She's also got a single black dot on her chin, which upon taking this picture I just realized how that's changing colour as well!

Watson has all sorts of cute freckles.

He has a spot on his left hip that kind of curves up. It makes me wonder about the genetics of spots, because a lot of dogs in his line, including his father, have this exact same marking, only on the left hip and never on the right.


He also has a few random white spots in his red blanket, and you can see one of them in the pic above.

The feathers on his rear legs/butt are split - the ones on the right are red, and the ones on the left are white.

I wonder if she's a creeping tan like Mia.

Mia started out with traditional tan points.

1 Day




15ish weeks



8ish months. Full tan face.



1 year



Almost 5 years:

Cohen has a tiny white mismark on her right ear. You can see it pretty well here at the tip.



Other than that, colour-wise, she's pretty normal. Sanity-wise, I'm not so sure.

It seems to look that way! It's difficult though as I have no idea how old Rigby really is. So I can't be certain it's a progressive tanning thing or if just her way of showing age and going "grey"

Either way, it's been a very interesting progression.

The contrast between 1 and 5 years with Mia is crazy! That stripe nearly disappeared!

I'm waiting to see if she turns totally brown on the head like her older brothers. Though her brother Dallas still has some of that black markings on her head.

When she was young I really really wanted her to stay dark. Now that she's older of course I love her markings now.
