The Case of the Disappearing White

Your litter of little Ridgebacks has just arrived and you are disheartened by the amount of white on their toes and belly. Well, now don't panic, it might not turn out to be as bad as you think! Unless you've got white over the pastern or up to the elbow, those smaller white areas will fade out a bit or seem to disappear by the time they are 9 weeks and older.

Thanks to Norah Ormerod, Glenaholm, for these photos of a newborn (L) and the same pup at 9 weeks of age. Fascinating, isn't it?
