I notice the pictures of Airedale puppies usually have a beautiful black "mask" but the adults do not. When does this color change occur? Do they ever keep the pretty puppy markings?

Airedales usually lose the black mask early in puppyhood. Mine lost his around 4 months. The breed standard is to have no black on the face. However, my parents' dog is older and has never lost the black along the top of his nose.
