not a bi colour
I had a dog similar to this -- by all appearances solid black -
and then I had to show Linda Shaw some stray hairs of tan , on the
back of her fore legs and a few between her toes .
You had to LOOK to find it .
This is the dog's pedigree - Carmspack Ivana , affectionately known as Ivory.
Linda was interested in this as this was a Kilo daughter and Linda had Kilo's sister Katiana - dam
to her beloved Timmy .
At that time she had started research and was data gathering - hand written notes and illustrations.
for YEARS and I do mean years this kept on coming up in discussions . To me - she was BLACK -
to Linda she was a melanistic black and tan .
At the end she concluded , after years , that she was a black dog.
I wouldn't know where to place your dog --- melantisctic black and tan to an extreme
or black with some blled through
I would not say bi colour as this is a different pattern .
what is the pedigree of your dog - who, by the way I find to be a stunningly good looking dog?
maybe some answers to be found in the genetics.
