    Default Another tri question

    The CKCSC says the standard for a tri is as follows

    Jet black markings broken up on a pearly white ground; with rich tan markings over the eyes, on the cheeks and on underside of tail.

    Ellie has brown under her ears so does that mean its technically not suppose to be there? Is her entire ear suppose to be all black? Do other tri owners have brown under their ears?

    Just curious

    I think they are supposed to have tan on the undersides of their ears. Both my tri and my b&t do.

    Bentley has lovely brown on the insides of his ears. I didn't think the underside of his tail was brown, but I just lifted it up, and yep! there's brown there too. By the way, he was very offended when I did that and got down off my lap I guess that was a rude thing for me to do so late at night.

    From the AKC standard:

    Tricolor - Jet black markings well broken up on a clear, pearly white ground. The ears must be black and the color evenly spaced on the head and surrounding both eyes, with a white blaze between the eyes. Rich tan markings over the eyes, on cheeks, inside ears and on underside of tail.

    I wonder why the AKC requires a tri to have a blaze, while the UK club doesn't? India's blaze consists of about 5 white hairs.

    This cracked me up. Maybe because I've gotten the 'offended look' from both of ours at one time or another.

    Well little Whitney has won at champ level (Tri left) so I guess her markings must be ok! she has lovely rich tan on the underside of her ears and her tail is 95% white apart from the base from her body. The rest on her body is jet black broken by sparkling white.

    The coat itself is smooth, straight and silky and she was blessed with such naturally long straight ears. A delight to wash and blo dry!

    The more I see of Tri's the more I'm falling in love with them!

    I once read that constant breeding of tricolour to tricolour can result in a loss of the amount of tan, so a Blenheim is used to reintroduce it.

    Yes Barbara it does result in the loss of pigment - also the blazes tend to disappear.
