Ok, so I didn't really dye his hair... but I might as well have... he looks like a different dog!!!

Here is a before - notice the dark red all over his back?





And the afters...







I guess I don't have a red dood anymore! I like him better apricot anyway - the red part of his coat was VERY coarse frizzy looking fur - the apricot/blond is MUCH softer!

I didn't have to cut under his belly at all - His back and legs were all 2"+ before I started, and he is now down to 1" - but his belly and chest all seem to be taking longer to grow as both places are only 1" naturally. Its a little choppy this time around but I took a bigger risk and cut him shorter - not bad for my first major dog grooming attempt! With scissors no less!

:)

Kristin, he looks great! I wanted to just sink my fingers into his coat when I looked at the 4th picture. I'm a bit of a goof about apricots anyway, so I like his look! The cut looks very nice on him too. Well done!

He actually started out as the lightest in the litter - more blonde than anything else - the red was a fairly new addition (2 months or so). So we went from apricot to red (yes, copper is the proper term), back to apricot :)

Cinnamon started out as a medium chocolate color and has turned a red with blonde high lights. Her mom was a chocolate lab and her father was silver. At least that's what the papers say. I saw her mom but not her dad.

Could she be considered a "red"?
