Silvering

Here's my Lola at 13 months. Even in the last month, the changes seem to appear almost daily. I thought I'd be sad when she started losing her gorgeous mahogany brown, but I'm loving the changes. At her roots, it's really a color I can't describe, but it's kind of like leaving a chocolate popsicle in the freezer too long, though more beautiful than that. I'm going to try and document things when the changes are significant. Maybe my baby will end up as beautiful as Heather Glen's Truffles. On a side note, I've been lucky with the blowing coat stage, and haven't really had any matting at all. I'll take it.

Wow yes that is a gorgeous color! She is going to be stunning through every stage you can tell. It would be very cool if she ended up like beautiful Truffles. And YES lucky lucky you that the coat blowing isn't a major one!

Lola is such a pretty girl! 😊 It will be interesting to see how much her coat changes. Were her parents chocolate? Truffles is two years old so I don't expect anymore changes.

Mom is a chocolate parti, dad is a gorgeous red. I know dad had silvering in his line.

Lola is gorgeous. I am interested to see her coat changes in the next year. Did her parents lighten as they got older? Rudy lightened up a lot. It's more of a tan color than silver. The tips if his ears are still dark brown.

My Sheldon is also silvering a bit on his body - face is still dark brown. When you look at his coat straight on, it's dark brown. When you look at it from an oblique angle, it's silvery. Love him either way!

Lola is absolutely gorgeous!

I think people are talking about two different things here. The silver gene causes white hair to grow sprinkled throughout the coat. Chocolates, in general, tend to fade, like sables. (not all of them, but most) So if all the hairs are the same color, but that color is lighter than it used to be, that's not silvering, it's "normal" (for the color) fading.

HOWEVER, whether they are silver or just chocolate that has faded, don't be so sure that what you have at 2 years is what they will remain. Havanese coats (silver, chocolate, sable and brindle) go through stages of lightening and darkening through their entire lives!
