black and white to silver coat change

Atticus was white with black markings at as a pup,overtime I'm noticing that his colors are spreading out and mixing together. I sort of hope he keeps his black mask but the rest of him is pretty fun to watch. Of course I'm turning silver grey myself ! Anyone else go from black and white to silver/grey? These pics are about 5 months apart.

Brody is getting more and more black interspersed in his white sections so it looks silver/grey. It annoys me when people think he's old because they see it as grey. I love Brody to bits and I think he's gorgeous no matter what, but I did prefer it when his white was pristine.

Looks like ticking to me. I think he's getting black marks mixed with his white. I suspect that where it looks like white is mixing with the black, it's more that the longer hair just sort of "fluffs" together. When Kodi sits up or stands on his hind legs, his white hair falls over the black hair from the spot on his back, making it look like it is mixed. When he is standing, the black hair falls straight, and it looks like he has a solid black band around the middle.

Jack silvered really fast. The gray started almost immediately. Here is Jack at 10 weeks, 6 months, 1 yr, 1.5 yrs. I have to admit I love the Grinch feet in his 1 yr. old pic. (I fixed them but they were cute.)

Dugan is now referred to as the "silver fox" around here. Here are some pictures of his transformation.

we thought django would be silver and white like his dad but he's still black and white at the age of 8. I do see a little silver on his bottom peeking thru the black but i don't think his coat is ever going to change.

Wow, Pam! I guess I hadn't seen a photo of Jack as tiny baby, and hadn't really thought about it! What a dramatic change. (I LOVE his color, though!)
