    Defaultchocolate lab with white hair

    I have a 1 yr old chocolate lab and she has recently developed a ring of white, bristly hair around her tail. Has anyone else noticed this and why is it happening?

    It sounds like it might be a scar from something.

    That's probably where the scent gland is. It's not uncommon from what I have read over the years.

    That is what I was going to say too. Bauer has the same thing, but it really isn't noticeable anymore. It was very noticeable when he was about a year old; he is now 4 and I really can't see the white hairs (unless I specifically look for them).

    Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

    I guess its pretty common. Here is a link, the picture is of a yellow, but you can see the ring on the tail.

    My chocolate has this too. It's pretty typical.
