Did your puppy look like this?

On of these little tykes is the furkid I'll be bringing home in July.

I'm trying to imagine what he might look like as an adult - wouldn't make much sense to name him something that invokes black if he fades to white!

The pups were described to me as white sable and parti sable. I realize that you can't really predict what the puppy will look like in adulthood - but did you once have a puppy that looked a lot like one of these charmers?

If so, I'd love to see a picture of what your dog looks like now!

Yup. Sables almost always fade. Most get very light, though a few stay tan-ish. "Parti" just means they have a lot of white as well as sable on them.

Tillie is an Irish Red Peid ... here is her coloring...
knowing your pup is a sable, they will likely lose most of thier coloring... except for maybe the pup on the left...? When will you know which one is yours!???
They are SO cute!!

Thanks, Tammy. I knew the reds usually fade - I wasn't sure if that was also true for puppies that start out so dark. Hard to believe!

Or maybe not - the same thing s happening to my hair.��

I don't know yet which one is mine. I'm determined to pick according to personality rather than the cuteness factor - and I need to keep repeating that to myself!

Here is Bella. She lightened a bit but still has quite a bit of gray and tan on her back and ears. My boys pretty much stayed black. Fred is graying a bit but still very dark.

Very cute! Is Bella considered a sable? I've been reading that cutting sables' coats often cut off the dark hairs.

Thanks! I forget what the breeder listed Bella as. Maybe a silver brindle? Here is a current picture of her back. I am grooming her now

They are all so cute that I'm not sure you could decide on that anyway! but, seriously, you are doing it the right way!
