Snoopy as a- beagle!!!

Hey Beagles!

I'm a 9 1/2 month old tri-color pup, and of course, ever since I came home, my colors have been changing. My pawrents knew that would happen... But now as I'm getting older, the skin on my all-white belly and inner paws is starting to get black spots ALL OVER!!! All my fur's still white on my underbelly~ is it going to change to match my new skin spots??? My pawrents think it's soooo funny because they keep telling me my spotted belly looks like a moo-cow--- I don't think it's so funny... it's pretty big grin

The pic in my profile of my muddy tummy shows some of my spots, but the spots have multiplied since then!!

Anypup else have tummy spots??? What color did your fur turn?

Wags & Howls, Hannah

If it was made- to eat. I will- eat it.

This is quite normal. It is called ticking. I bet either the father or mother had spots on them. Our beagle Maggie was pure white on her belly, legs and tummy until about 6 months old. Now she is covered with spots. We should have called her "Dottie." I love the spots. I think they are unique.
