colour showing through a chocolate - black coat."

"The color of seal can range from seeming black
all the the way to a chocolate shade. Some think
of this as a black but it's not a true black. It has
tan tipping throughout the coat or around the
neck or shoulders. If the dog seems black but
out in the sunlight has some sort of tan
anywhere or seems 'faded'.. then it's a SEAL.  
The tips or lighter shading will be seen on the
sides, around the shoulders and sometimes in
the loin.
