    I will say, if they seem to be just along the spine, THAT could be sun spots. These, just like in humans, are caused by over-exposure to the sun and just like with humans, it can be bad for dogs. If your doggie spends alot of time outside in an unshaded yard, sunscreen is a must, just like for your skin kids. We had a friend whose all white great dane developed them very badly. They weren't the cute little black & brown freckles we see with our piebald bullie, but they were orangish and yellow and under the fur. You could tell they were different (a little, anyway). White dogs tend to "sunburn" worse than other dogs. You might talk to your vet next time you're in to see him.

    I do not let Winston spend much time in the sun, unless he is going potty he is usually only outside when the sun goes down. That is very good advice though thank you!!

    They are just pigment markings, Banks has them all over her belly and her 'freckles' are brindle markings
