Lucca has one too! Look at the signature pic. Can't see it very well from the pic though.

I read the following at akc.org regarding the spots: "The spots on the tongue are a result of heavy pigmentation. Pigmentation is the coloration found in plant and animal cells. In dogs, pigment can affect the “points” of a dog and is genetically determined. Points include lips, nose, eye rims, pads and even toenails. "

Totally normal!! Just extra pigmentation. Almost all of our goldens have them and some have quite a few of them Our almost 16 year old golden also has one so it is certainly nothing to worry about!!

Ours has 2 spots on his tongue...but his nose is starting to lighten up, so the pigment isn't sticking there. Wish that myth was true!!
