Merle?

Have you ever heard of the MERLE gene in boxers?

Can you suggest some good readings about this?
It's very hot here in Italy... we cannot even go to the beach!!

I think the first 2 links Dan posted are supposed to be on the same line; anyway, the bowlingsite link is:

http://bowlingsite.mcf.com/Genetics/Merle.html

(I also recommend Sue's other Genetics articles, especially this one if you're interested in coat color genetics:

At any rate, the merle gene is not found in Boxers. If you come across a merle Boxer, there's another breed in the mix.

Those were the first two links Dan posted that I was talking about. The direct link to that page is the first on in my previous post.
