Black Spot on Tongue

Quick question - Maggie has recently developed this black spot on her tongue. She is almost 7 months and I just noticed it about 3 weeks ago. I know she hasn't always had it. It seems to be a natural spot, doesn't look like an infection or anything... almost like a freckle, but black and about a quarter-inch in diameter.

Is that common/typical to develop these spots? My last golden never had anything like that.

It is a treat spot. That means you must give Maggie more treats. Lots of our goldens get them. No worries.........

That's what we thought here😀 Also love the pix of jumping in the pool, does the pup use the ladder to get out?

Our boy, Cash, has them! I didn't notice them until he got a little older and at first thought he had chewed on a marker! The vet said they are like birthmarks. I love it!

They are beauty spots!

Actually my mixed spaniel / retriever had a very strange one and we used it to recover her when she was stolen!

They are a blessing!
