    Oh yes. The Poop Butt incident.

    It is a rule: When meeting internet people my dogs must do something embarassing.

    Proof that my dog is not black. Just her mask is.

    Otherwise I think she's straightforward.
    This picture kinda makes me sad lol she's so much grayer now.

    Baby Auggie had a white lightning mark on his forehead:
    [​IMG]

    It went away when he got older, but since he's graying now, it's coming back more. You can faintly see it in photos now, sometimes better than others depending on angle/lighting:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    My favorite part of Auggie, it's not a marking... but he has one little black freckle on his muzzle, right over his lip in the front. I'm not sure if you can see it...
    [​IMG]

    Auggie and Georgie both have zig-zaggy collars, too.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Payton is really nicely marked - part of why his breeder originally wanted to keep him as her pick - but, uh, his muzzle is slightly crooked?
    [​IMG]

    P also initially had a marking on his forehead that went away:
    [​IMG]

    Miss Pepper has all kinds of spotty feet and toes, but I don't have any good photos. Because almost all my photos of Pepper look the same. And they are of her head. Staring at me like I am her whole world.
    She also doesn't have a collar, but has this one white spot on the back of her head:
    [​IMG]
    If you look close you can actually see a spotty toe in this one!

    I wasn't going to say WHY she was wet. But it's not Mia's fault that her own butt feathers betrayed her haha.

    Dodger has tan points, which were not there when I got him (or so subtle I never noticed) and have slowly started to appear more and more prominently over the years. It's also more apparent based on the lighting.

    You can see it on his face, and legs. This is an old photo.
    [​IMG]

    More on his legs here, also bonus goofy face.
    [​IMG]

    This photo might have been over processed by the photographer, but you can reallllly see it here.
    [​IMG]


    Extra bonus.. this work of art I found while looking for these black/tan photos.

    Poor Poor thing. :rofl1: She got thrown in the pond.


    I swear Georgie's profile is like the girly version of Auggie's. She's so flipping cute.

    I also like auggie's back left foot.

    Haha, it really is - they look SO much alike. She definitely gets her looks from Auggie's mom's side of the family. I love Georgie for how bitchy her face looks. There's no question that she's a girl. Pepper I feel looks pretty bitchy too, but not like Georgie. Georgie's face just screams "I'M A GIRL!!"

    These are other side of their zig-zags:
    [​IMG]
    And Auggie's back left foot LOL. I like it too. Like he just dipped his toes in paint.

    Dodger is really handsome...I don't think we see enough of him :). Is he a purebred Lab? (I should probably know the answer to that but don't, sorry)

    How are Georgie and Auggie related? I forget.

    They're all so cute but I see Georgie and I want to cuddle her so bad.

    Mine too!

    Mine are all pretty straightforward too...Cricket has a ton of ticking and is just a speckly dog in general. It's heaviest on her front legs and along her spine - there's a dot on her back that's just a bunch of ticking fused together, which you can almost see here:
    [​IMG]

    She's gotten way more as she's aged, too, she didn't really have any ticking on her body when she was six months:
    [​IMG]

    Journey's color is fun, mostly because she changed so much as she grew. At six weeks, she was almost entirely black:
    [​IMG]

    And this is what she looks like now, at three and a half:

    Trent doesn't have any unique markings (although he does have some white spotting on his chest and a freckle on his cheek... as do a ton of German Shepherds). But... I have a snake with a cat face/teddy bear on his head?

    Also, one Cricket and Journey for me, please.

    Auggie's brother Quigley (same cross but a previous litter) is Georgie's dad.
    Pepper's sister Twizzle (same litter) is Georgie's mom.

    And Payton is Pepper's half-brother, so he's Georgie's half-uncle LOL.

    Auggie looks very much like his mom (Quigs looks like his dad) and Georgie definitely got her looks too!

    This is a fantastically awesome photo.

    Your dogs are SO PRETTY. I think I haven't ever said that but every time I see your photos I think it (and that includes Gabby!).

    WUT. Everything I know is a lie. I seriously thought she was black.

    I'm pretty sure everyone has seen these, but Mu's heart.

    And her mouse pointer.

    And I love every single one of her spots. They've gotten way more defined as she gets older.

    Here she is as a puppy - I can't believe how much her face has changed.
    [​IMG]

    Tipper has freckles all over that I forget about until I look at photos.
    [​IMG]

    And she has this weird arrow mark on her head (devil horns!).

    Murphy has one totally random white spot on the back of his neck.

    Mine aren't that interesting. Meg is just brindle, with a whole lot of greying going on.

    Gusto is weird in that I'm not sure he's actually black. He's got a very brown tone to him, and I suspect he's actually what I'd call seal in a horse. You can kind of see it here:

    [​IMG]

    I'd suspect some sort of sun bleaching, but it is the same year round.

    He also has a Star Trek symbol/wishbone on the back of his neck.

    Well...Abrams is brown....and Cynder is black. :rofl1:

    But Chloe has (had?) a pink dot on her nose - I'm pretty sure it's moved around as she's matured, and probably isn't there anymore:
    [​IMG]

    She's also a merle, which most people don't realize (and you especially can't tell now that I shave her):
    [​IMG]

    And apparently, looking through her pictures, she has what looks like tan points above her eyes?
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    We also have Mitzi, who has the Hyrule symbol on her nose:
    [​IMG]

    And my handsome baby kitty Apollo, who has a mountain between his eyes:

    Riff has two random white spots, a little one on his face:

    [​IMG]

    and a bigger one on his back:

    Rowan has Australia on his side.
