Hello! Schuster (pronounced shoe-ster) will be 2 years old in Feb. 2005

After this summer, we have noticed what appears to be skin pigmentation (for lack of better words) that spots certain areas of his skin. The biggest area being his testes sack. Is this normal? I didn't notice it until after this summer. Yes, he was outside quite a bit more this year than last simply because of his age (getting older) and because we've moved out of the city. All thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Same here! The darkest spot on ButterCloud is the same place as Schuster. It's so annoying because Cloud's nuetered and it's a hanging black skin. Blah. But it's normal

Lady gets the same thing, like Dalmation spots in the summer. I have found using a grooming spray with sunscreen really helps. I worry about skin cancer in white dogs. I know my vet years ago warned me never to let my pure white cat outside for that reason. (My cats are indoor only anyway).

I've been using Pure Pet, but Ice on Ice has sunscreen, too.
