I can't believe how much whiter he's got in the almost 3 years I've had him. We aren't really sure how old he is, but about 8-9yrs based on my vet's guesstimate. He has white hairs popping up throughout his entire coat and there are quite a few between his toes.
This is the very first picture I took of my boy when I brought him home. You can see the spots on his nose from him trying to escape from his crate at the foster home.
This was a couple of months ago - you can see the white has moved from just at the front of his muzzle backwards along his jowls.
The picture reminds me of the Subaru commercial that always makes me cry.... I just hate it that our sweet doggies age so fast.... we just never seem to have enough time with them. Our Maggiemay crossed the bridge at 12. She was graying and her foxred color had faded a lot by then...

Even with the white, Kolby still has a "puppy face." He is gorgeous!! Bauer is starting to get white hairs, I noticed the first ones when he was about 4 . He will be 5 in January (kind of unbelievable) and right under his bottom lip through his chin is getting pretty white. He also has a few under his eyes, which I always mistake for something on his face and try to brush them off.

Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
He's beautiful! My Jackson is 6 and starting to get grey chin hairs. I hate hit! He looks gorgeous and distinguished but it too much of a reminder that he's aging!
He is so handsome & now the white hairs make him look so wise. Abby is going to be 7 in Jauary, she started getting some white hairs around 4. Now she has so many. It does bother me at times to see them, because it just reminds me of how fast they move into the senior age.
MItzi too started getting lighter around 4, but Judy didn't lose color until last year at 9. I'm glad Bruno is so light.
I love the sugar dipped chin.
Erns went grey a few years ago and has them dotted all over, but fingers crossed he hasn't gone white around the eyes or face.
When Tess grew fur on her face and chin it has come through white.When people see us out they remark that the young black one is the naughty one while the old Brown is the wise old one. Ummm....the young one is 10 and the old one is 5. lol.
Jasper is as near to white as anything so people can't believe how old he is when I tell them he's ten !
