i went for a walk in the park with cosmo this weekend and in his enthousiasm he went to the lake. his belly was a bit wet.
now this week i have the idea his belly is very filthy from this as his belly was always pink. this morning i tried to wash him ,but nothing came off????

so is his belly turning black ,is this normal, and why are parts still pink??
( half of his willy is pink and black) :lol:

Sounds like just normal skin colouring (pigment) Fynn and Sullys went pink to purple in some places. :D

Our Kosmo had the pinkest belly and over the last couple of weeks it has almost all turned black. Looks like someone colored his belly with a black crayon. Its a normal change unless the belly looks red and irrated also.

and unless it's flaky. flaky and black is bad and needs to be seen by a vet. i just washed a shepherd at my job and the belly was black and flaky and i said to myself thisw can't be normal so i got the vet to check him out and he had to have medicated baths and antibiotics...

i agree with everyone else unless it looks irritated sounds like normal pigment change, vixies skin is a blue tinge (she carries blue sabling) in her ears are blue, hr belly is blue and she has a line of pink upthe center of her belly, it looks kind of funny.
i wouldnt worry unless its flacky, sore or crakcked and red

OMG, this just happened to Harley too. It was like overnight or something?! I am thinking it is normal as well! Phew, I ran here and did a search. Nat, Harley's "change" is the same as Cosmo's, LOL. :lol: :oops:

I was so happy to see this thread when I searched "purple skin"!
I was a second away from taking Max to the vet. He had a very pink belly, and underarms just a few days ago ... suddenly his skin is almost black! I should say that he has no rash, flakey skin, or sore spots. Totally strange. His fur seems to be very thin right now ... I guess thinner than normal. Have others who noticed the pigment change also notice a thinning fur thing going on at the same time?
Max came to us as a foster dog last August ... at the time no one knew how old he was. Our vet guessed between 3 & 5 yrs old. Here's my other question .... when is the pigment change occuring in all of your dogs? 1-2 years? It might shed some light on Max's age.
Thank you!

Max was def not a puppy when he first came to us last year .... he's at the very least a year and a half ... maybe two.
It's just so strange!
Thanks Brenda ...

Well what a relief! Bufords did that too. We had been at my brothers and Buford had been digging in dirt. When we got home, I tried to clean it off only it didn't clean off. It did happen suddenly too.
