As you can probably see by the above, apart from being a very funny looking pup, when Billy first arrived he had an extremely pink, rather non-committal, nose. Just a couple of tiny black spots and rest was pink.
Now, over a year later, he has become a very handsome boy, his colouring has developed, and his nose is slowly filling-in with black (No, not the children with their pens!).
I certainly think a Border Collie looks better with an all black nose, but of course we like him as he is; regardless.
I'm now wondering, with time, whether his nose will become totally black. I somehow think it might.
Quite a different boy from his first portrait.
