Coat-Irregular shaped black patches upon a white background, which is speckled with black. This confers blue reflection. Two black spots are generally situated at the side of the head, cover the ears and encircle the eyes, to end up at the cheeks without meeting on top of the skull. They leave a blaze, either blue mottled or white, in the center of which is frequently found a small, oval black spot - one of the identifying features of the breed.-cameron_jch
