Bitch Stripe?

Hi all,

Was wondering if you guys could confirm if Penny is developing a "Bitch stripe"? From her neck down to her tail along her spine (no further than half an inch either side) there is grey/silver coming in but there is no grey/silver on her torso or her legs, just around her neck the back of her ears and now going along her spine down her back... is that a bitch stripe forming? Ive really noticed it the last two weeks or so getting more prominent and showing without my brushing her fur back to see it and even until she was about 5 months old when you brushed the fur back along her spine there was no silver but its really starting to come in now... I could take a few picture if that would make it easier...

Thanks!

oh also she is now 7 months and 1 week.

Sounds just like it, I think so, let me see if I can dig up some pics of how Lara's bitch stripe started

Now, you can really see the tan/white:

Hey, Dubya's in those pictures. How did they get Dubya's pictures??? Not that I care all that much, it says they got them from this site. I suppose maybe I should look at our policy about pictures here.

I have to say that Dubya had a bitch stripe and he was never neutered. And a pup (not out of Dubya or any of his progeny) out of Odie who is not quite four months old, Lord, and not nuetered, has a healthy bitch stripe. His sister, Lassie does not.

That shows what it looks like, but what is it? What does it mean or signify, or is it just a stripe?

Is that what that is?!

I have a solid black female, can they get them too? I thought she was trying to turn sable on me or someting, now I'm wondering if that's what it is. It's not nearly as noticeable as some of those pictures though, more like mandiah89's pictures?
