Can someone help w black spots on tongue

Where did this originate, and has it been around for some time?? I looked into Neeko's mouth last month and saw a big black spot on his tongue....I know alot of you have doggies with spots, just was wondering where they originated from...thanks...

How old is Neeko?

Brady's I don't think showed up until he was a few months old. The funny thing was, and a picture of a half sibling of his was posted on this forum, and his treat spot was in the same place and amost identical to Brady's. Makes me wonder if their sire had one like it to.

I don't know... but I do think they're cute... and when I see one on a tongue I'm always thinking "I should put a treat on that spot!" LOL

Black spots are normal in Goldens.

My cousin's granddaughter asked me about the spot on Summer's tongue.

I told her that Summer's mom took a magic marker and marked her tongue and said that this puppy is just for her new dad.

Well, it sounded good at the time.
