Carly grayed early too. She was probably about 2. And yes her bitch stripe had a lot of white pretty early on.

Keystone is the only one of mine who hasn't had a white chin by 3. Tilden is 9.5yrs old now and his has yet to spread. I don't know if he'll ever age.

I think I'm going to dye her chin hairs.... What organic and totally safe would work? Licorace? I think I only to paint the 20 hairs, not her skin.... she'll hold real still for me:) She is rather vain too, lol.....

Arrgh - she sees me clip my nails - she wants hers clipped too (even though she puts up bloddy el). She sees me blow dry my hair - she's right there and wants it on her too.....

Oh, that reminds me - yesterday in the yard, she struck a pose and it almost floored me...

She had her back legs out "show dog style" and her back... about a 5 inch slope from withers to rear... astounded me, didn't know... and yes, her back left foot/hock was still seeing daylight...

She looked like a fricken show dog! BUT the back was a straight slant and fore leg parallel to ground (not "on the ground). Now that I know that's a comfortable position for her - lol - I'll try to "stack" a 27# atw thin dog... lol

God, I love this dog! She's crazy and fun and a total goof ball!

Here's my continued training effort results... but she makes me laugh! And that's her apparent training goal for me!:grin2:

Nitro's going grey too, he's about the same age as Summer. His grandfather starting going grey at 6 months. It looks distinguished. You could tint Summer pink with beet juice.

I think it's adorable! Looks like she got into a bag of powdered donuts and there's juuuuuust enough evidence left behind on her chin to prove it! Haha

At two, Kai had the same little white fuzz. Must be fairly common.

Waterproof mascara. It's what all the cool show dogs wear.

what is a bitch stripe?
I call mine's her mean streak:laugh2:

Seriously, the way it was explained to me - its a group of lighter colored hairs mixed in with the darker. It starts at the top of the neck where it is wider and extends in a band down the top of the back. More likely in female's but some males have it too. It really puts a ding in the middle of the nice black saddle, but whatayagonnado?
