The best and easiest example is the Calico cat... the coat color is 
coded for by genes on the X chromosome.  Due to random inactivation
of one X chromosome or the other you get a cat with patches of 
different colored fur corresponding to which (colored) parent the
active X chromosome in those tissues is derived from.
