Default Ridgeback .... ridgenose?

...
My 2 crossbreed girls have a 'ridgeback effect' on their noses. They are
possibly a mix of GSD, lab, maybe border collie too.
I've checked my sister's dogs' noses (white GSD, border collie) and even
checked the neighbours' dog (labrador) but they all have the usual hair
running in one direction.

Does anyone have any ideas about this physical trait .... are there
particular breeds with this ridgenose effect?


Here's one: http://cmell.tripod.com/test.htm - not a purebred, but I have
seen this feature on some show dogs too. Maybe 1 in several thousands. Seems
nobody bred for it (yet?)

Oh, that's just a "zipper." It's in all sorts of dogs, purebred and
otherwise. There were two zippers in my Flat-Coated Retriever's litter,
and my hunting trainer's newest prospect has a very, very cute little one.
Personally, I don't care for them, but it's entirely cosmetic. I don't
know if any breed standard says anything about them one way or the other
