Re: Going grey?

Gracie's mum had some greys creeping in at age 5.

Can't imagine my pup with a sweet white face in such a short time...

Re: Going grey?

Our girl started with grey (well white) on her chin somewhere between 3 and 4. She is almost six now and has quite a bit of grey on her muzzle and around her eyes. It actually looks like she is just getting light spots - until you look close and see all the white hairs mixed in with the red. And it really show in pictures, Our boy (from same litter) just started showing some grey within the last half year. Thier dad turned very grey, so we weren't surprised they are greying early. Certainly can't be stress - these dogs are spoiled rotten and have us trained very well!

You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

Re: Going grey?

Willie is approximately six, and he has lots of white hairs under his chin, and then a few more here and there. He is still mostly that lovely russet, though. The change makes me sad, must admit, because it reminds me of how short their lifespan really is. :'(

Re: Going grey?

Cash some gray on his chin, started right after age 3.
June has half of the same bloodline and just noticed a few gray hairs on her chin.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
