    Well, this is the best photo I could find to illustrate. He looks pretty light all over in this one, though. Someone else will have a better one:



    See on top of Angus' shoulder blades, how the fur there is lighter? They are called "angel wings." Lots of yellows have them.

    You can see a lighter shade of white behind Frodo's front 'shoulder blades'.* Those are refered to Angel wings..much to my dismay, because it must be the only angelic thing about him

    Here are Monty's "angel wings" (the patches of lighter yellow up toward his shoulders...noticeable in most yellows, though it seems to show up the best the darker they are):

    As a puppy:


    At 6 months old (I find them a bit easier to see when not in the sunshine):


    A couple of weeks ago at night:




    Do you see what we're talking about?* It is a bit difficult to see them on lighter yellows...I hope someone with a darker dog will post a couple of good photos for you...*

    Cappy's are a little more pronounced than Remi's ...
    Remi and Rusty aren't my whole life. They're trying to fill the hole in my heart left by Cappy's passing.
