See that tuft of hair sticking out on the side of Caelan's neck. I love that spray of hair. That is the perfect storm of hair convergence. There is a ridge of hair that runs down his neck, and a ridge of hair that runs up his neck, to form a swirl. It is a precise circle within a circle. Have you ever seen a BB shot through a window? That is what it looks like. In the very center is a tiny ring of hairless skin. With the length of his lush winter coat it looks to have a bad case of static. In the summer it lays flat. All dogs have markings or identifying features that makes them uniquely them, this is Caelan's. That and the large splotches on his side resembling Micky Mouse ears. Which I am always sorely tempted to glue eyeballs on. Just for kicks. My friends Weimaraner, Starr, has long ears. Taren has a freckle on his lower eyelid. What makes your pup stand out from the pack?

I love the warmth and glow in this picture...

Leroy has lots of fatty lumps, lol.
Lucy has been going grey since she was a pup, but her biggest standout trait would be her longer cropped tail.

Blue has fur like that on the back of his thighs... I say they are his "mudflaps" He also has very large jowels which I call hang-lows"

Junie has a swirl near her ear of fur and now... she has fuzzy fur like a teddy bear!
