connie, the color I think you'r referring to is called grizzled and tan. Here's a dissapearing view of my old war horse, Rags. Now passed. He was grizzled and tan.

That's it! Milo is exactly that color -- same as Rags. That was the word: Grizzled!

Cool picture, Bob.

Pete, Polly and Thunder in the front yard. Obviously, from the look on Polly, she had no use for the new "upstart" sitting that close to her.

This is how I spent many an evening after a long dig. The pic is ten yrs old. That's Pete (JRT) as a pup, along with two Borders, Rags and Polly, along with a lovable, but useless CH Norwich, Grizzly. Griz would actually swallow mice he caught. :eek: That's a HUGE no no to terrier men. He also had no use for REAL earth work. We still loved him though. :roll: :wink:

Tim, Rags was truely a real, kicka$$ dog when it came to hunting, but the Borders are very people soft as a rule. Rags could be crushed with a harsh word, but would always get the job done in the ground. The Borders are also the easiest terriers to get along with other dogs.

I would agree 100% with that.

That bottom photo with a lapful of terriers.........Rags does look like Milo in that picture. It's funny how they can change color quite a bit depending on whether they need or have just had stripping.

Great pics, BTW. I love GSDs and BTs..... my two faves!
