    I recently noticed a teeny brown spot on Lily's lower eye lid. I first thought it was a bug or speck of dirt, tried to get it out and no luck.It is on skin and does not move. It a freckle, little on outer and little on inner. Is this pigmentation? Being a white boxer I notice as she gets older she gets more and more spots on her body. What do you think? Have you seen this in white boxers? We have had so many vet appointments for different things I am not going to bring in for a simple freckle, it is flat and not raised either. Could the sun have caused this I wonder? Although I don't make her stay out in the sun long. She finds a patch of sun in the house and sits in the spot. I don't want to worry about every little thing that appears on her. But we worry about our boxers.

    It is probably just a spot of dark skin. I would just keep an eye on it. :)

    If you had a pic that would help ...? Chance has so many spots! Some are darker maybe than others but are all flat. I would tend to think as long as it is completely flat it is most likely a freckel/spot and no need to worry unless it changes :)

    It looks fine. I think it is just a freckle. :)

    Thanks everyone. I see more pop up throughout her body as she is getting older. I tell her freckles are cool.

    Cotton started out pure white and as he's gotten older has more and more freckles and spots. Vet told me it's like us - as we age we get more and more sun spots.
