Chocolate Sable Color Changes

I have heard of these guys color changing so much I thought I start a post so we can see the changes these chocolate sables go through. Lucy looks soo much like Fin, and I think close to his age so I do hope Rory posts some pics! Finnegan is 6.5 months now, still a little (just over 5 lbs) Taz, but does make us laugh sooo much, we think he thinks his name is "NO FINNEGAN" Any way here are some Finnegan pics - don't let that angelic look fool you!! And let's see some of these changes, all colors too! The first 2 he was about 3 months, the last two are from the past 2 weeks (6 1/2 months), he is lightened.Fin in Bathrobe.jpg

michelle!

He is probably one of the "prettiest" havanese I have ever seen. How dashing he is! Lucky you!

And if he has an Irish temperament, watch out! My Grandmother was Charlotte O'Halloran from Tulla!

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

Michelle, he is absolutely adorable. His colors are so pretty, and I can tell he lightened up. He has these swirls of lighter colors that are so cute.

LUCY's Color changes

Here are some pictures of Lucy. She's a little shy of 9 months and weighs in at 9.4 lbs.

She has a lot of apricot coloring on her legs and back. Very interesting to watch it evolve. She looks totally different depending on what light she's in: sunlight, camera flash, room light........It's hard to pin her down.

Rory, Lucy is sooooo beautiful!! It is amazing how her darker parts (back, ears, tip of tail) are the same places Fin's are!!!!!! And Linda yes...that Irish temperament is sooo there in my little Cuban pup He has lightened, I will keep posting to show these changes, I have seen some go completely cream!!!

I think Finn and Lucy will end up very similar. The breeder said she had no idea what Lucy would grow into because she started so dark. Her tail is always going to be chocolate. Her ears are going to be brown and red. Her back, I think will go apricot and pewter and her legs will stay that creamy color. I would love to cut the hair off her back to see what it will look like, but saving that for Spring!

Here she is in her darker days:
