I groomed a new SDSR foster today. Her name is Starbuck. She has one pale blue eye and one brown eye. I thought she was a black cocker with silvering but as I was trimming her, grayish patches showed up in her fur and patterning like a roan but without the bluish tint. This would make her a merle, yes? I didn't think blue eyes were necessarily an indication of being a merle but am I wrong about that?

File comment: She was a doll to groom, so patient and cooperative.

She's a merle girl. I love her little white foot.

Oh is she ever pretty! I also love the white foot. You did a good job grooming her Naomi. I hope she finds a home soon. :hp

Oh my what a doll! Do you know any of her story? I can't believe someone would have given her up.

Oh she is a beauty!!! I would say merle too. I thought blue eyes were an indicator of a merle. She reminds me of my Maya! They would make quite the pair together since thier blue eyes are on opposite sides......
