Puppy Shedding Question

So it has started... the black clumps everywhere lol... but I was curious about something.. is it normal for there to be just spots on the body randomly of changed hair? I can't get a good picture, because sitting still is a task for Cullen, but for example- Behind Cullen front leg is an area of courser hair about 2 sq inches tops, but it's more brown while the rest is black. His back hair is getting more coarse, but I don't remember it happening like that with my last GSD, so making sure it is semi normal!

i'm thinking Cullen's coat is changing
because it's natural to go through
some changes. also the weather could
be playing it's part.

Well, Cullen is 13 weeks... and its there. The blowing of black chunks wasn't really what concerned me, it was the fact that... he just has one or two entire spots on his body that are different.. rather than my last GSD who gradually changed his whole body!
