Sandy gets darker gold/apricot as his coat grows out - but when he gets a cut he goes light again :)

Annabelle has gone from almost pure black to silver back to charcoal and silver, at times she has more silver on her and at times more charcoal :wink:

Sadie is going from light to darker too. She's white but getting more and more tan on her. So cool!

Peanut has lightened up considerably in the past year.

when her coat is fully grown out she has red/apricot on her legs and parts of her back. when she's trimmed she looks cream and white except for her ears and tail

also a doodle can go thru both coat texture and colors for the 1st year or 2.

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

6-7 months old

9 months old

10 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...




17 months old


Coco and Abby "chillin' " as my boys say.....

Tink,

What a beautiful color Max has changed to!! From light to darker!

Great looking doodle!

Gorgeous pups Tink!

Jane I can't believe how big Abby is ! Coco changed a lot, have you trimmed her short to see what color she is underneath? Annabelle is always darker when short, her ends are always lighter

Kirby is changing a lot too and he's changed from light to darker. His coat is a lot different too.
This is Kirby with his breeder at about 9 weeks old. He's pretty white!

Then this is him the day he came to live with us (3 months).

Then one day he woke up looking like this!

This isn't the best picture but it shows how his coat looks now. He's gone from being white, to being a cream color with apricote blotches throughout.

Toby's going to be great, no matter what!!! :D

(Ozzie probably ate a whole bag of purple Skittles yesterday!!
As soon as they get out of his system....he'll be back to normal, too!!)
:lol: :lol: :lol:

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? :?
