Nancy - I was just thinking of this thread last week... and that's because Monty is getting darker on his back - a lot more gold coming in and his pigment on his chest is darkening a bit - plus he has these free floating all by themselves black hairs in his coat - its just beautiful.  Ohhh, but along with the darker color on the back has come more shedding.  Time for the furmerator!!  I still consider him a silver, but he's definitely not as light as Anthony's girl so he may just be a light fawn now...

I Love the "silvers" Here are My boys  (much younger) when then were about 10 weeks old,Tony is the Silver fawn and nando is the apricot!

The one with Tony and his ball is when he was 4 1/2 weeks

I miss them at that age!!

I felt that my Bling was a silver fawn as a youngster.  Like Nancy E's girl, as she gets older, she is getting a little bit of a honey color to her coat.  My Louie was like this too - very light as a youngster, and darkened as he got older.  I think the silver fawns look flashy in the ring.

Our Abbey acted the opposite and has lightened with age.  She was always a very very light baby and as she has gotten older she has continued to lighten.

The variations are interesting.  Monty is Sajaks color but has the honey starting to run down his back - it will be interesting to see how it comes in as he matures.  I'm with you Kristen - I love the silvers - esp. with the dark pigment against it - its so rich looking!

Ok I'm confused.  I thought by Silver it meant they had more black to them but from what I see here it means they are the lightest fawn there is.  Please explain to me what is Silver, and so on the fawn colors.  I just had a litter and have one boy in there that was born almost black he is so dark while the others seem to have the normal puppy fawn coloring. Will he turn out to be Silver or a darker shade?  I like all the colors but Apricot is probably my fav and I am going to start working to that shade in my breeding line.
