Hey guys.

Isabelle has literally over the space of around 10 days developed brindle marks on her tummy. I've never had this is a Chi before, is this unusual? Do you think she will develop more? She is a little over 5 months.
I can't figure out how to attach a pic so it just shows up on the thread, sorry!:foxes15:

Those aren't "brindle" markings (my Maya is a brindle Chi--it's a coat color pattern sort of like tiger stripes in a way haha). What your girls is getting is pigment in her skin which is totally normal. :) It may continue to change or "spread" but it's all normal for her. I think she has a cute tummy!

Ruby, 6 months, has also developed a light freckling to her little belly. It is not as noticeable as your baby but I would guess that it could get more pronounced or darker. We call it her freckled tummy. Hope, who is cream, just is pink on her tummy, no markings.

Yep it is harmless :) It may change throughout her life, too. Just watch for anything "odd", as you would on your own skin. But pigment color change isn't a big deal in our furry friends.

It's the time of the year, as soon as the sun comes out they get this on their belly. It's kind of like us getting freckly! X

Awww bless little gorgeous Zoey. I've been putting suncream on Isabelle's ears. I'm worried they'll frazzle up and fall off lol
