Black and White Parti
Daisy is the true ink black. At four though, she is getting a few white hairs where she is black and a lot of black hair where she is white. She might turn mostly black at some point. She is probably more of a Pied than a parti. Her beard is turning mostly black, it was very white when she was a puppy. Her litter was half black with white paws and half black and white. Her mom was pure white, her dad black and white. Daisy is actually a niece of Riki, my other dog.
My Silver Parti Riki was pure black and white as a pup. By the end of a year, he had completely silvered. He is four and a half. At times, more black hair comes in on his back mixed with the silver, especially where the harness rubs when we walk. I'll have to go through my files to show you the pics. His mom was silvered, his dad black and white. There is a lot of pure white in their line.
Daisy, ink black, has no red or brown in her coat. Many of my friends with black dogs turn brownish or red streaked. Daisy's black is lovely. One of the truest blacks I have seen. But who knows what will happen as she gets older. You just never know with these dogs.
