A quote from Sherri:

If you were given the pick of a litter of puppies, all but one of them being solid
black, with the other one being speckled and a bit smaller than the rest,
which one would you pick? Sherri would pick the speckled one anyday. Like
being Mosaic, it has many different colors, as a person with Mosaicism has
different types of chromosomes and speckled is way more interesting than
just one color!
