Bandit has some really neat markings on his coat. He was born with the "mask" on his eyes (thus the name Bandit). Over time he's developed a lighter "hood" over the top of his head and down his neck. Also he has gotten this really cool zig zag mark on his back.

So what unique markings does (do) your dog(s) have?

What great markings....hey it would be fun to post a picture of Bandit as a young pup next to the current picture so we can see the changes. Great looking dog you have there.

He looks great! I'd be tempted to call him Viper! We have a snake over here with the zig-zag markings, the only one with a bite with a sting!

Shunka only has the white mark on his nose like a candle burning, other wise he is reddish with cream underbelly and legs, he got much darker after his spring maoult, but has returned to his lovely red colour again this autumn.



Hope I got it right again this time

This was taken a while ago, must get some upto date ones

We've figured out Sitka's secret. He's nuclear powered.

We should have guessed it sooner as he has on his chest the international radioactive symbol.

Shunka has a great color. I'm curious to see how (or if) Bandit's coloring will change seasonally and as he grows (it's already evolved quite a bit over the past 3 months).

Right now while he's a pup, we seem to get a lot of questions about Bandit being a German Shepherd because of his coloring. I think as an adult, he won't be mistaken. ...already he's more AID and less German Shepherd looking.

We got the "mut" comment a few days ago. :lol: I said, yep, he's the American mut - the ultimate mut. He's got only the best the North American continent has to offer, shaped and cultivated over decades of intensional selective breeding that has resulted in the ultimate in intelligence, beauty, agility, capability, and fun, culminating in near doggy perfection . :D ...well, I didn't say the last part - but that's what I meant.

I have said it or something similar! A woman who is high up in the British Kennel Club met Shunka and said what a beautiful dog he was and stated "We could do wonders with these" I told her you couldn't improve on perfection and besides that she wouldn't be allowed to have one to use as a show dog anyway!

I also told her wanting one of our dogs doesn't always get, and with her attitude it would be NO.

She wasn't best pleased.

Forgot to say thanks for saying you like his colour! he was a darker brown as a pup, it's difficult to see on the logo, but there are some gorgeous pictures of him as a pup on Sarah's page in Wales.

Kim said something to me about their markings becoming less pronounced in the summer (I didn't recognize Hopi, her face looked so different!), but Danza doesn't change. She has a very strong mask year round. It has gotten only slightly less pronounced as she's gotten older.

Dog of the month would be awesome Karen!!! I agree wholeheartedly!!!

Liz perfection is correct ha ha!!! B) They are the perfect dog!!!

And Cheese...the Ultimate Mutt works for me!!! :lol:

Chhaya being black doesn't change much...she does have some, what I'll call a blond ruff and it seems to change lighter and darker at times.

Soul's colors and markings change with the seasons. Right now he is sporting almost an almond color with his tail tip pitch black. He has his stripe on the neck, but like Jasper, he looks airbrushed in some places. I love the way he has "ripples" from his guard hairs down...kinda like a wave. In the summer, you can hardly see the waves, but as winter comes, so do the more pronounced darker lines.

And his eyebrows? Very pronounced in the winter...they kinda look like this:

^o^ Remember, Allison, we made a small bet about them changing? Way back in March of last year? They aren't blond anymore, but they are still there! Will post pic tomorrow; he's snoozing now!
