VI Mismarks - Mismarks either have more body white than the standard calls for or have white in the "wrong" places. There's nothing wrong with these Cardigans other than nature didn't put their coloration in the right places for showing them. Mismarks are sought after because of their flash and beauty for pets and are fine for performance and obedience.
VII Fluffs - Cardigan fluffs - simply have longer coats than called for by the standard. Fluffs are some of the most spectacular looking Cardigans around. They make wonderful pets and require only a bit more grooming. Some Cardigans can be genetically tested to be fluffs and still aren't "flaming" fluffs, but only have longer ear fringe and fuller, flagging tails.
