Looks like he had a blast! I love to see your photos because my Valentino is the same color. I keep him cut shorter though...seeing Sam helps me know how gorgeous Valentino would be with longer hair! Kudos to you for the time you spend on him so he can look so handsome So glad spring has "sprung" there...we are enjoying it here in Dallas too!

Debbie, I think your pictures are gorgeous. How long did it take Sam to grow his coat to that length? Enjoy the weather and the beautiful flowers

It has gotten up to 90 degrees here this week! That's hot even for sunny Arizona. The kids have even been in the pool. Dusty was romping in the mud a month ago, but she's staying clean now.

Thanks for the comments guys,

Sam had to have a complete bath to get out all the mud. I knew he would be a mess when we got back from our walk so I brushed him really good before, so I could plop him into the laundry tub when we got home.

Sam is now 14 months old.

Any pictures of Valentino?

Is Dusty's color considered Chocolate?

Thanks! We think Dusty's adorable, but personally, I like her with her bangs in her eyes. Her color is something like chocolate sable irish pied. She's definitely a chocolate, with the brown pigment and hazel eyes. The brown has a lot of color variation though. The hairs go dark and then light again. She currently has some very light coloring coming in on her back. She also had tan markings as a puppy from the photos I've seen (we got her at 7 months), and when she was born she had a white muzzle and one little white spot on her forehead. The rest of her face was brown. You can still see the brown on the ends of the hair. Her dad had a white head like she is getting. I'm fascinated by her coloring. I haven't seen any photos of other chocolate dogs that look like her. We'll have to see how she changes. She'll be a year old in a couple of weeks, and her adult coat is barely starting to come in, so I don't think this is the end!
The nice thing about chocolate is the dirt blends in. We call her Crusty and Musty and Dust Bunny when she starts needing a bath! Trouble is, all the places that are hard to keep clean, she's white!

Debbie, I've only posted 2 in the Gallery...Melissa had to downsize them for me or I wouldn't even have those on there! Since he's cut shorter it may be harder to see his color but his markings look just like Sam's! How long did it take for his coat to get that length? Vicki p.s. I think they are almost the same age too...mine was born 12-7-05.(Pearl Harbor day...hummmm!)
