In the greyhound world, a black and white dog is often called a cowdog. Many times, cowdogs have or develop little black “ticking” spots in the areas where they are white. Stone has quite a few ticking marks and they have gotten more numerous and darker as he has aged. Yet, at the same time, his big black spots have all turned gray and he is really a salt and pepper cowdog now. But, a greyhound’s color really isn’t all that important in the grand scheme of things. It’s the sparkle – the spirit – that each dog has that is the key. If you can let the sparkle touch your heart and your soul, you have received a special gift. Cherish it … forever.
