GsdLover, can I ask you what this means:

Dakoda~ 4/29/10 Black & Tan (Bright Points & Silver Ticking) GSD

I know it is describing your dogs coloring, but I have never seen this description. Can you post a good pic of this? It sounds like Roo I think. She is a blk and tan, but she has ribbons of silver.

Well, silver ticking is silver hairs throughout the black fur (particularly the neck and saddle). The "bright points" are places where her tan is lighter than the rest of it. For example, her feet, inner legs and the fur on the back of her hindlegs. (: Here's a couple pics:


^ These were taken at 6 months old. You can't really see the silver ticking yet, but if you look closely you will see her "bright points."

^ Look at her neck, and along her back. All the spots that look grey when wet are a silver color when dry (: This is her silver ticking.

If you look right behind her shoulders, you can see silver ticking in this one.

^ Last one. You can see the ticking on her neck, and a couple bright points. You can also ALMOST see the green ring around her pupils. (:

THANK YOU!!! That makes alot of sense. Dakoda is beautiful!!!!

If you look at the first 4 pics I posted on this thread, the first three you can see the silver that is developing under the black all down her back. She also has bright points, clear in pic 4, the one of her sitting looking right at me. The coloring framing her face - her "ear floofies" and cheeks are tan, but then the coloring around her neck is almost silver, same with chest markings, part tan part silver to me, and the underside of her tail is silver too.

Anytime!!! (:
I do see both (: If she had less black on her, she would likely be colored a lot like my Koda. Well, her pigmentation is better than Koda's (she's a bit washed out unfortunately). I look forward to watching her grow and seeing her color develop

The other day someone commented to me bubbles legs are to short. She's probably the same age as your puppy. She has almost the sane appearance. Your puppy makes me happy to know bubbles is normal. All I can say is that woman's crazy....

besides the rant Roo is beautiful !!!

Lol no gas from rotti must be real bad I feed mine Royal Canin and her coat is very shiny she always gets compliments on that. Although now I am slowly switching her raw/kibble. She is 6 months old and let me tell you, there are A LOT of changes in her behavior. She is my first GSD and raising them with their picky eating and their overly protective temperament can be challenging I love her though totally worth it. Good luck!
