I am wondering what color to call my Standard Poodle. Up until 6 months of age she was a wonderful full chocholate color. At 6 months she started to get grey/silver hairs in her tail. Now her back has alot of grey hairs through it. She is only 1 year of age. The grey continues to spread and is starting on her belly. I will attach a picture of my Mother with the dogs at x-mass (it shows the colour on her back). Will this continue until she is all grey? Does this color or pattern of greying have a name?

Look at the parents pedigrees and see what colors they were and if any were registered with 2 colors like cream/silver. If she is going to silver out I've heard it can take up to 3 years for a silver to fully turn. Now my Johnson is a sable Phantom and is cream/silver/black and a little apricot on his ears you can see him in the photo gallery under poodles. Hope this helps.

Maureen knows more about the coloring maybe she will write a post soon.
