Coquina’s coloration is defined as “merle”.
You can call her red merle or chocolate merle, depending your taste. Our pals at wiki say: “In addition to altering base coat color, merle also modifies eye color and coloring on the nose and paw pads. The merle gene modifies the dark pigment in the eyes, occasionally changing dark eyes to blue, or part of the eye to be colored blue. Since merle causes random modifications, however, both dark-eyed, blue-eyed, and odd-colored eyesare possible. Color on paw pads and nose may be mottled pink and black.” For the complete wikiscoop, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merle_(dog_coat)
Her coloring can make her hard to “spot”.
One of Coquina’s “happy places” is at the beach.
With all those spots, she can be hard to spot.

One of these days I might post something nonCoquina.
