Default Dark colored hair?

While bathing Maisy tonight, I noticed she has some hair that is almost a light charcoal color. It's on the back of her head between her ears. I've never noticed this until her bath tonight, I guess where it was wet it showed up more. When she's dry I can't see it. Her ears have always been an apricot color, but I've never noticed the gray. Is this normal?

Hmmm, I've had malts with lemon ears but no charcoal on them. Do you have a picture?

I don't have a picture, no. I wish I had taken one while I was bathing her. It's strange. I've never noticed it before. I couldn't see it when I put her hair back up in a top not either. Her ears are an off color.. but never noticed this before.

Hmmm... is she purebred?

Gus gets dark patches - very small - in random places. But he's not maltese LOL

Well... She's supposed to be. Her parents are both AKC certified. I never sent in her paperwork though since we don't plan to breed or show her, she's just our baby. Learned my lesson with breeders and I won't deal with that lady ever again.
I went back and looked in the area again.. and I can see fine black hairs.. Not in a big bunch but spread through that area. Just makes me wonder if the lady might have lied on the paperwork.

I have read on several websites that the original Maltese came in different colors. Could it be that sometimes something like this could happen?

Do you see the little paper clip beside the smiley face where you type your posts/replies? Click that and a box will pop up telling you Choose File. After you do that look down in the bottom right and click the button that says Upload. After you click Submit Reply, it will show in your post.

Oh okay! I see it now! I can show off my baby! Hehe
Basically just wondering now if she could be a mix breed instead of full Maltese... The black hairs have me totally confused. But anyway... This is Miss Maisy Lou after her bath this evening. (I think she's here anyway) LOL

Maybe it's hair on a mole? or was she injured?

Gussy's seem to be places he's had scabs before... the hair comes back black. But again, he isn't maltese.

She is ADORABLE OMG!

I want to snuggle her!
