I bathed Molly yesterday and when drying her noted a flat black spot just above the ankle on one of her back legs. Its quite large, maybe 1/2". It doesn't look like the little black moles Callie gets (Callie is almost 9) Molly is only approaching 5 years.

The spot is flat, doesn't look like any kind of growth I've seen, no bumps in it but no hair is growing out of it. It doesn't seem to bother her at all. I bathe both of them regularly (around every two weeks) and it was not present at her last bath or I would have noticed it when drying her.

I don't know whether to be scared or not. She had something kind of similar on her front ankle a month ago (which is gone now) The vet said it was a callous from her licking it, that she might have had a bite of some kind which she licked a lot.

Looking very closely, I can see it is not her skin, but very fine black hairs. She must have had an injury and licked it. I'm watching it every day for changes and there are none. I haven't taken her to the vet since it doesn't appear to be skin disease at this point.
