Mom and I are in shock! Bailie has lived with us for eleven months and we just now discovered the paw print. Mom gives Bailie belly rubs all the time, brushes her fur, checks her for ticks, all the usual mom stuff, but has never noticed the paw print.
I wanted to post a pic with most of her body so you can see where it is exactly. Now that Mom has seen it, she can’t stop looking at it! I guess it was hard to miss because normally when Bailie is lying down, her front left leg covers all or part of that area. I say a real paw print has four toes, but nature did a fine job with this three toe model. GBGV’s typically have pink skin with black freckles, but not a paw print. Now my little sister has something super cool to brag about! The big question is, who left that paw print on her little belly? Do you have a dog that has a super cool skin pattern?
I am joining the Black and White Sunday Blog Hop sponsored by Dachshund Nola and Sugar the Golden Retriever. Sometimes photos are simply more fun in black and white.
That is the COOLEST EVER!!!! What a cool surprise!
It is awesome, can’t believe we just now noticed it.
Interesting marking and how cool 🙂 Happy Sunday. Golden Woofs
We both have lots of black spots, but this collection just popped out the other day.
Reilly & Denny says
That is super cute – both Reilly and Denny have lots of spots of their skin and they change constantly which is odd. Neither have a cool paw print though 🙂
We have lots of black spots, so it is hard to say if they change, but if they do, maybe this paw formation is something new.
That is so cool Bailie! Do you think her mommy put it there? Love Dolly
Mom said it must be from her dog mom, but we just don’t know.
Jan K says
Very cool!! Luke has a lot of spots, so I’ll have to check him to see if I missed any patterns!
We both have lots of spots, but this one just popped up. No idea if it has always been there or if it has been hidden by fur or what.
Sparkle the PBGV says
That is pawsome, Bailie!! You are the cool chick with an almost tattoo. Now I am going to be inspected for almost “tattoos.” Have a super Sunday. XOXO Sparkle the PBGV
Mom is pretty amazed. I think it is kind of rare. I don’t have any myself.
Sheila Morris says
I LOVE these pictures – body ink or not!! 🙂
All natural, maybe a paw print from her dog mom.
Cool…. a paw freckle 🙂
Molly The Wally says
Way cool. Nope nothing as impressive over here. Have a serene easy Sunday now.
Best wishes Molly
We think it is pretty cool. Usually humans find a heart or something, but we like the paw.
Wow! Either Bailie is made by Jack Wolfskin or that’s a sign of good luck. It’s pawesome!
She is a product of mass production (litter of 14 pups) but I don’t think her father was Jack Wolfskin. We will just hope she is lucky.

That is very cool, we don’t have any special markings on Jack or Maggie – at least not that I’ve seen. I’ll have to check now!
Katie and I don’t have anything more than a few black dots in no fancy order.
That’s awesome. her own personal tattoo.
I know, she is really lucky. Hope she doesn’t run off and join a gang now that she has a tattoo!
She is blessed by the puppy paw angel! WOL!
I like that!
Emily @ Adventures of a Dog Mom says
That’s so cool!
Now we are just wondering how we missed it for so long!
Poodle At Play says
What an awesome little marking!
It makes her special. Hope she doesn’t get an ego problem.
We can see polka dots on Walter’s chest. He might have other places with colored skin but his fur is heavier there so we can’t see anything.
Millie & Walter
I have lots of black on my belly area, but nothing fun like a paw print.
Wow – how very neat! No secret spots we’re away of for Heather and Mr. K…we might have to go double check now! Much love, The Scottie Mom.
Mom never looked for one before, but now that this one was discovered by accident, she has searched Katie and I but found nothing.
We are pretty impressed!
Frankie and Ernie says
THAT is SOOOOOOOO cool drool Bailie. Butt we wonder WHY it took your mom like 87 Weeks to Spy it??? BaaaaWaaaaah.
Well, Bailie is only 14 months old, so it couldn’t have taken 87 weeks, but we are wondering why in 11 months of Bailie living here, she just now saw it.
That is so darn cool!
She feels pretty extra special now!
That is very, very special beautiful Bailie!
She feels special now that we noticed that spot.
Oh Ballie, you have a beautiful mare for a beautiful pup! 🙂
It is pretty neat, I must say!
Tenacious Little Terrier says
How neat. Does this mean Bailie is all grown up now what with her first tattoo and all?
I don’t think she is grown up judging from her puppy behavior, but that is okay, she is just having fun.
Aww perfect! Millie also has black dappled skin, maybe I should look for some patterns too!! So pleased you found it though, very special!
Hugs, Carrie and Pups x
I have black spots too, but none that are in such a cool formation!
Ann "Paws" Staub says
Wow that is pretty cool Bailie! Sometimes, as dogs grow older they get pigmentation in new spots on their skin. Maybe it wasn’t always there. Who knows?
Maybe it will disappear too. Who knows, but for now it is pretty pawsome.
M. K. Clinton says
Wow! Your little sister has a tattoo! I know that you said she was the mischievous one, but that is soooo cool. She can hang with me and my #7. ☺
I know, Mom was thinking of your 7 when she found the paw print. Cool stuff. I don’t have any special marks.
Whitley Westie says
Wow, dat are real cool!
I know, I’m a bit jealous of it actually.
Ellen Shedlarz says
That’s because she is such a special dog!
She is special, but I think I am the most special 😉
Dogs N Pawz says
That is so cool! Diesel has lots of spots but they don’t make anything awesome like that!
I have lots of spots too but mines aren’t in any fun order either.
Jenna,Mark “HuskyCrazed” Drady says
Oh wow!!!! That is SO pawsome!!!
ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!
We all think it is pretty darn cool!
That’s pretty cool! As far as I’m aware neither of my pups have birthmarks like this. I do like feeling their little belly buttons though! Haha.
It is just a fluke and from what we hear, these spots can change, so it may be fairly new, we don’t know.
What a surprise!! Isn’t it funny that nobody ever noticed it before! Very cool!! Chloe has little cow spots on her belly!!
Bailie and I both have some spots, but this one is real neat. We don’t know if it has always been there or not, but we are glad we found it.
So cool! Will be fun to see if it stays as she grows up.
We sure hope it does.
I want one on my belly.
So do i?!
If you have to have freckles or a birth mark, that is a really cool one to have! Sadie has a couple freckles on her tummy, but none as awesome as Bailie’s!
I have lots of freckles too, but no fun patterns.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
that is totally super cool,
I’m kind of jealous I don’t have a fancy mark like that myself!
2 Brown Dawgs says
It does look like a paw print!
