Puppy fur....
I think my pup is getting his adult hair? Very weird. All up his spine is longer hair growing in . Pic below. I'm I right? He will be 11 weeks Sunday.

Yes, those are adult hair, it basically starts form base of the tail and moves up wards through the spine :) Congratulations.

Does this mean that the color of his adults hair will stay the color it comes in? I was surprised knowing he is getting it all ready.

Awww :) yes, that's definitely adult fur coming in!
Maybe Finnick will get his soon as he's only a little bit younger than Percy!
His nickname is "floofy" as his head has so much fluffiness (especially around his ears).

Isabella, had the exact same streak upper back looked like a; Rhodesian Ridgeback. You were asking about changing of color at 16 weeks I'm seeing a little bit a Whitehair coming in below the ears on the backside and just a tiny bit under the undercoat, so the coat structure can change or vary.

When do they start to get the bushy tail?

Tyson's tail started look thick and big when he was almost 6 -7 months. His tail started to be bushy and the fur long when he was almost 9 months old, he is almost 11 now and he still has some tail to grow. :)
