Merles Darken

SUMMARY: Some merles get darker.

I like blue merles when they have lots of nice, light gray.

Boost has been getting darker over time--compare, for example, the left ear:

In fact, Boost had a white spot on her nose as a puppy that I kept thinking was a flower petal and kept trying to brush off. That white spot has completely vanished.

But here's a really interesting extreme example of darkening.

I don't think it's just the merles. Lola's pretty red puppy coat got darker as she got older as well.

Then there are the Kerry Blue Terriers that start out black and turn gray as they grow up.
