Augie was black and tan as a puppy. His black parts were black black. Starting with his rear end, his under hair started turning lighter and lighter until now it is a pale gray or silver and it is inching forward until he now has these silvery gray hairs scattered throughout most of his coat. I am sort of expecting most of his black to lighten, but who knows. It seems these guys have a mind all their own when it comes to color.
Then, isn't there the Belton gene where the reverse happens, where the white areas on dogs will start getting the darker spots and get darker and darker. I am wondering if Piper might have that going on? Also, hopefully Dale will comment here, I am thinking that I recall reading where Cicero may have that gene.
