|That's a very broad question with a different answer for every dog, so I'm expecting lots of different responses. The thing is that last June (2007) I adopted Cal. The shelter said he was two years old. He'd been found as a very skinny stray so no one knew his age for sure. One vet said he was 6 months. Another said he was a year. In the last year he hasn't gotten bigger, so I am guessing he was at least a year last June when we got him, making him at least two years now. He's naturally leggy with giant feet, so most people assume he's a pup, even today.
Well now he is starting to go gray under his chin. He has probably thirty little gray hairs under his bottom lip that weren't there before. I am wondering if this might offer a clue as to his real age...meaning he's older than anyone had thought.
What is everyone else's experience with dogs going gray? Cal's my first dog, so I'm totally clueless in this area.
