Hair Discoloration
My almost 15 year old toy poodle is in terrific health and only eats Science Diet.  She has recently developed a spot on her fur on her side that is reddish-tan.  She is grayish black on most of her fur.  The spot is not on her skin and does not seem to bother her at all.  I did notice her licking it a few times.

Not sure what it is...

Could this be something that has bleached her fur? Something which has got on her? Does she go anywhere there are chemicals or anything which could act as a bleach? In the kitchen or garage? or somewhere else?

Your poodle is licking that spot.  Doggie saliva stains coats.  On white dogs it turns it a reddish brown.  She was ichy right in that spot is why.
Currently, I am a dog grooming student.  You see this alot.  Nothing to worry about, but check for fleas.
