Thunder, my not-black dog

Everyone seems to call Thunder my black dog. In a lot of pictures he looks black and from a distance he looks black. So he's come to be known as my "black dog". Despite the fact that I have 2 very black BC's with white markings, and Lightning is black with brindled tri markings and white. FINALLY I got pictures that show Thunder is not black! :thumbs up As a puppy he was very noticeably merle, he had very light gray patches on a dark chocolately/black background. As he matured though his gray changed to this colour and from the distance the merling is not apparent. I think he's quite unique however. :lovestruck:

ETA: I apologize for the lovely background :rolleyes:

Thunder is a beauty. You can sure tell he's not all black in those pictures. They look like they are having a wonderful time in the water

I think in the water is Thunder's favourite place to be. Every day he takes a dip in the horse's trough (it's an old bathtub). He hops in and lays down in there. He even likes to splash and play when there's ice on the puddles, and loves the snow and cold too. Hard to believe he came from down south (Louisiana).
