What's the deal with brindle?


Trouble...with a- capital T.

My boston Eden is brindle. She has four sisters from her litter that were the same way. Her litter was actually less expensive than the normal tuxedo pups would have been, and when I explained to the breeder that I actually -preferred- the brindling, he seemed a little bit surprised. Is there some sort of strange stigma associated with brindle bostons that I'm not aware of?

Cute as you may- be, you can't- beat me.

All research I've done mention black, brindle and seal as the only three colors accepted by the AKC, but I guess to some they just have to look like little four legged penguins. Our breeder was also somewhat taken aback by our choice of the only mismarked BT from a litter of pups with almost perfect marking but we found her to be more of an individual for her differences. So, "pish posh" to those who look down on us cutter mismarks.
