Hi, everybody!! Boy has it been a busy summer! We’ve gotten to hang out with lots of our furry buddy-ol’-pals from all around Albuquerque, we’ve had several special-needs pets to care for, several gardens to tend to, and most recently, we’ve been caring for a fun brood of chickens (Daniel’s fave!). 😀
We appreciate you all keeping up with us, and thank you all for your likes, comments, and your overall support of Duck & Turtle!
We thought we’d share something fun and eye-catching this time around, something visually striking. This brought me to the idea of dog coats!
Dog coats have significance to us because our dog, Sangoma, is a double merle. This means that the same genes that gave him his unique and beautiful coat also left him hearing- and vision-impaired. Sango is a very sweet and special boy who quickly went from being our foster to being our third. ♥
Also, we were recently watching the movie Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey and were struck by how much in the wide shots the colors and coats of Shadow, Chance, and Sassy resemble our three, Ruca, Sango, and Kourry, respectively…. (Hahaha! Sorry, Kourry.) 🙂
Needless to say, I’ve had dog coats on the brain.
Here are 33 stunning dogs with strikingly unique colors and markings, some of which are the result of a rare genetic variation or condition…. all of which will leave you amazed!
Enjoy these most memorable and beautiful dogs….
…but don’t be bummed afterward because your pup doesn’t look like a super-cool masked superhero.
Remember: they are ALL unique and uniquely one-of-a-kind on the inside. 🙂
