    @My2Girls Correct me if I am wrong, but is that a cowlick or just the natural pattern of fur most short haired dogs have? I call it the drip line. Where water would drain down when they are wet. However I could just be nuts and I have no idea where I read/heard this XD

    But both of my dogs have had this ridge on their necks.

    Any thing specific you have to do for a collar other than maybe a soft leather one ?

    Nope, he's never shown any sign of irritation from having a collar on over his cowlick.

    Good question? I just assumed it was a cowlick. My other dobie, Princess, does not have it as pronounced as Shadow. Maybe the experts can chime in. What do you guy think?

    Kaiser has it like this too but the light has to hit it a certain way. You can see it here coming down from his ear base. It’s the same on both sides. I have heard it called a “seam”.

    Wow congrats on your new addition! :congrats: When is she coming home?

    Cowlicks, zippers or whatever you want to call them are very common in many breeds but you can see them better on Dobermans with their sleek coat.

    Thank you ! :ty:And we actually have her already we picked her up at 6 weeks. So she’s been with us for 2 weeks already and so far so good she’s fitting in and potty training, and crate training are going well. Tomorrow we go to the vet to evaluate her ears for a crop my vet likes to look at the ears before making a commitment to cropping them.
