Maccabee is 9-1/2 months old. His coat is clearly going through a change. He used to be jet black with a white spot on his chin, a few white hairs on the back of his neck, and slightly tan paws. Now, he is mostly charcoal grey, with a black area remaining down the center of his back and a light tan face, legs and paws. He has some white on his chin, a mix of white and tan on his chest, a white butt, and a bunch of silver hairs throughout his back.
I have not seen any significant increase in shedding when I comb him, and also no increase in tangles/mats. I generally comb him every second day, sometimes every day and rarely every third day. I assumed color change accompanies blowing coat. I guess I was wrong, or have we just been VERY lucky because of his silky coat?
I'm hoping that the silver hairs skattered over his back indicate he will silver. I love silver Havs. His mother is silver and white.
