Color Change

Cicero is changing his coat color....almost as I type. I know it's ticking but I am amazed how the hair can change color in the strands. The tan markings he had as a baby have changed to white or grey. The white started getting light grey....then charcoal...and now it's almost black in places. He is looking more salt and pepper than anything and people are amazed at his coat. I knew many of these babies get lighter, but I never thought of his white turning to black. I don't even think I have seen another Hav on this forum that has a coat like his. We are beginning to think he will end up black.

Have any of you had furbabies to change color this much? The pics are not great but hopefully you can see how wavy it's beginning to get. I will try to get some better ones in a few days...because I'm sure it will look darker. Do they change a lot after the blowing coat stage?
The change from March...till now.

Milo's color changed tremendously. When I got him he had a little tan on his face but was mostly black and cream. Then he lost most of the tan for months. Lately his head has so much red in it, I'm surprised all the time.

Even Bailey's color is changing. He's still very much a sable parti but his head is turning more toward the dark gray with light gray, black and red mixed in. It's fascinatig to watch. Living with a hav is like a box of chocolates. You just never know what you're going to get.

Color change is one of the "Wonders" of the Havanese world.

Have you looked through this web site, all about the colors of the Havanese

Dale, he really is just opposite of what you usually see....dark to light and Cicero is light to dark! No matter what color he ends up, he'll always be really cute!

Dale, I haven't seen many change from light to dark, but you know I adore Cicero. I don't have much experience with the ticking gene but know that few people here do so hopefully they'll be able to give you a great answer.

Oh and talk about getting wavy hair - I thought MeMe was growing a top layer that was wavier...nope the girl was breaking off her coat by sleeping under a chair and it was getting shorter, thus causing the wave.

Bandit has the ticking gene. Her back used to be white then it got little strands of black then it got a lot of black in it. For a while when she was wet she looked like she had a black back, when dry she looked like her back was white.

Bandit went darker, Ellie went from black to orange to blue and back to black. Lightning went from black to blue and looks like he's going silver. His picture is my avatar and here's a picture I took of him yesterday.

This has always intrigued me about Havs

Forgive my ignorance, but what it the ticking gene? This is the first time I have heard that term. Thanks! And I have added a photo of Summer when she was a pup and she has virtually lost all of her sable coloring she had and it mostly white now.
