I am Doodlebug, King of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human, my front paws look funny.
Me: They look fine to me.
Doodlebug: No, there was little white hairs all over them and they are supposed to be black like the rest of me.
Me: Well, that’s not anything wrong. You’re just turning a bit gray.
Doodlebug: But I don’t like it.
Me: None of us really do. It’s an age thing. You’ve gotten to an age where some of your hair runs out of color and the hairs go white or gray.
Doodlebug: But what about Sweetie? We are the same age. Why isn’t she graying?
Me: She may be, but since her head and body are white and brown, it just doesn’t show up as much as it does on you.
Sweetie: Ha! Ha!
