    Default Black Spots

    So Obi's 9 wks old and has a white face. I noticed yesterday (never noticed before) that he has a couple small black spot on his skin (forehead). His hair is still white on these black spots. Is this something I should be worried about? We go back to the vet in January so I plan to ask them. Just wanted to see what you guys think.

    to EBN. My first thought is that it's just the pigment of Obi's skin. Lots and lots of bullies have what I call poke-a-dots. Wilson's full of them, even on his underbelly. As Obi gets a bit older his colors may start changing a bit, the browns may get darker or lighter. Wilson pulled some black that mixes in with his red along his nap, sorta like his color fades into the white. I'm sure others will be along soon, but it's probably just Obi getting some dots.

    PS....Obi's a cutie!

    These are normal, and he may get more as he gets older. All of mine have these, it's just skin pigmentation.

    Wait till you give him a bath. I hardly noticed Liz's black spots before. When she has a bath, she looks like a Dalmatian!
