I have done this before...
but thought I would show you the progression
of changes in Coco's coat. For those that have seen these before....sorry!!
Indulge me, again, OK>??
For the newbies who might be wondering
what in the world their doodle's coat is doing!!!
The first picture is at 8 weeks and the last one is a week ago.
She has not only changed color, but texture of coat....
She is way shorter now...
I trimmed her down to about 1-1/2 inches...
awhile back and now she is around 2 inches everywhere....
it curls more now, so it may be longer
than 2 inches, just kinked up.
She definitely has a coat of many colors,
black, brown, reddish brown, silver, blonde, lighter brown......
she started out dark chocloate
with a little bit of black undercoat....
It is constantly changing..... :roll:
8 Weeks Old
4 months old

14 months old
15 months old This is the worst her coat has ever looked!
She seemed to be shedding puppy coat late...but then she has done everything late....It looks better now...
I have read that some reds darken with age. Apricot, I believe, is diluted red. With all those other factors that affect color, is it possible that it is a separate gene that can darken the apricot? :?
