Top Knot Success and Silvering
Raffy and I had to have several conversations about him wearing a top knot so I could see his eyes and he could see me. In the end, he relented and for the last couple days, I've successfully gotten the hair out of his eyes! He still has a few shorter wispies around the eyes that I had to use a touch of gel on, however.
Since I was taking pictures of his new do anyhow, I thought I'd also try to capture how silvering is affecting his coat. In the first picture, the silver tail and very visible silver strands are featured, but because of the lighting, he looks very black otherwise. He's more of a charcoal color than a true black, though. My other dog is a true black and Raffy is clearly not when they stand side by side.
In the second picture, I ruffled his hair so his undercoat would be more visible, and it is an even lighter charcoal/grey, which has me curious about what is going to happen when he blows coat in the next few months.
The last picture was taken in "sunlight" such as it is on a grey day in Washington. And I thought it was cute.
I am not sure how silver Raffy will get. I noticed the first signs when he was about 16 weeks old, which is later than some pups whose silvering is obvious very very early. I'm thoroughly fascinated by the color changing and wonder what color my grown up Raffy will be!
