Color changes

Sadie is a sable parti. Over the last 18 moonths she has cleared to white except for the tips of ears. Recently I noticed that patches of red are showing up on her back--almost in the same location as her original brown patches. It's suspenseful and quite interesting. We would love for some of that origianl color to return. She is now a little over 2years. She and Lincoln, our 6 month old standard poodle really play hard despite the 30 pound, and 14" height difference. Funny how a 13 pound dog can control the relationship. Also funny how smaller female can control the larger male (wait--maybe that's not so unusual or funny).

I've noticed a number of changes in all of mine. Ruby, who was very red till she was past one year old, turned pale peachy for several months. She seems to be getting much more of the red again. They are a constant surprise. And it's no surprise to me that your girl wields the whip. Mine does too.

Ooohh! This is very exciting to me! Rollie started out with the red coloring (and I loved that), then the grey came in (and I love THAT!) and the red is just tipping, and now I'm seeing the peachy cream come in (excited to see THAT!) but it does look like he has some grey hairs that are grey all the way to the roots (ticking?). I'm very excited that he may turn red again later on! Boy, this is fun.

I definitely agree, please share pics.
