That's ticking ;) It causes little spots of color to show through white areas. White is like a blanket set over the color. Ticking is like a bunch of little holes punched in the blanket.
It's present in Australian cattle dogs, English Setters, German shorthaired pointers, Australian shepherds, Border Collies, Corgis, Beagles, and many, many more. This is a completely separate gene from merle.
I don't quite see Chow in her, but I definitely see Pom, and I see where you get Corgi. I'd have to agree with Corgi Pom. Anyway she is very cute :3 She reminds me of a teddy bear <3
Can anyone guess mine? He's about 15 lbs, and he's over 12 years old, so his color's kinda washed out, but maybe someone'll want to take a stab :) http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs70/i/20...ve-d3pnwrh.jpg http://oi49.tinypic.com/34h9c9u.jpg http://oi50.tinypic.com/30xj5ti.jpg
