Belton/Non-curly Coat Progression

Hey folks, in another thread, I promised that I'd dig up photos of Kodi's coat progression so that people could see what happens with the Belton gene. (though some Beltons show much more ticking than Kodi does)

I also find it interesting, looking back, how very different Kodi's coat was as a puppy from many of the curly-coated puppies we see here. While the curly coated pups are absolutely adorable, they also, generally mean that you'll be working harder through blowing coat. So if easy of coat matters to you, and you are looking for a puppy, look for one with a non-curly coat.

I was actually surprised to see, as I went through the pix that Kodi's coat was straighter even than his two siblings in the photos. (though that is NOT why I picked him!)

This will probably take a couple of posts:

The first photo here is 7/15/2009, when I went to pick Kodi up. This is all 3 puppies (the two Irish Pied had already left) Kodi is in the middle. I believe they were 11 weeks more or less.

The other photos, in order, Kodi on 7/15, 8/9, 10/8/09 and 1/8/10. Even in the last photo, a 6 months, you can't see any Belton marks at all.

OK, the dates on this group are: 4/29/10 (his first birthday photo!), 5/22/10, 8/15/10 (the black stripe on his side is the small black spot seen in his baby photo on the Starborn page... this isn't a Belton mark but you can see some lighter striping behind it that is), 1/27/11 and 6/8/11(here, again, you can see some faint Belton stripes in the hair on his back if you look closely).

This first photo is Kodi coming down the ramp during our (still ongoing) house remodel 8/12/11. It shows the Belton marks REALLY well! (again, the biggest "stripe" mid-back is that black spot he started with), Next is 9/24/11, and finally, tonight, 12/2/11.

Great Thread! Thanks for sharing the photos of the handsome Kodi from puppy to grownup.

Thanks, Pattie! It was a fun walk down "Memory Lane".

Karen when you bathe him, is he mostly dark grey? Rosie is and it is so strange. Then I blow her dry and the ticking mostly disappears.

No, but his stripes are MUCH more obvious. I'll try to remember to take a picture the next time I give him a bath. I think it would be fun if you and other forum members who have Beltons could post photos in this thread so other people can see them. Especially it would be neat if you could post the pictures of Rosie in a puppy cut and grown out again. That's the most amazing transition I've seen!

It would be fun if people with other "changable" coat colors wouls start threads for those too, so that people with puppies can see the interesting possibilities!

Great idea. RICO, my silver sable, has had many changes, especially to red.

Very interesting Karen! I had to look up the Belton gene as I had never heard that term before. And that got me to wondering about Ceylon. I will post a new post about my questions re. his hair color so that I don't hijack your thread, but thanks for posting these pictures! I love to see how all of the different havs change...
