    Elvis had a nice white V on his tail.
    I kinda liked it.

    Went away at about 9 mos or so.

    My chocolate girl has a yellow/white streak around her tail and on the small of her back! I forget who said it but basically they said it doesn't affect their retrieving!!!

    For those that have bred their dogs that have a white patch somewhere, was it passed along to their pups? I've always been curious about this....and just how/where the white spot comes from because I know of a couple of examples of pups that have it, yet neither parent has any white spots.

    Neither parent in my pups breeding had any white spots. Not concerned in the least since she marks like a demon!

    Great way to look at it! It is amazing how well that single white hair will catch yours and everyone elses eye against/or within that little coal black sea of hair.

    The white hairs on the tail like what you described are caused by the gland just under them.
