I see.. wow.. I'm sure you have many pictures of 1 dog showing many different shades of red or apricot, would like to share them? the apricot ones? :-) maybe that will give me a good point of reference also...

I have posted a number of threads of Journey and also posted some photos of her in the red poodle thread. Just type the word Journey in the search bar. I am having a terrible time posting photos on the forum now,

She's an apricot. One of the hallmarks of apricots is that they change color depending on the light. They usually look much brighter and more sumptuous when sparkling clean. They vary in shade. Some are very orange, some more taupey orange. Some fade when older and some don't. When dusty they look a rather drab color. Lou is darker than my light apricot girl Bonnie.

I do so hope Lou keeps her black nose! Many apricots lose their black nose when they are older, but not all. Bonnie kept hers until about 14 months old and now at 22 months old it is a deep brownish black. It still looks pretty, but I miss her black nose.

Here's some pictures of Bonnie in various light. You can also see her nose that turned brown, too. She is registered cream and turned light apricot as she grew older. Lou is more apricot than Bonnie is.



Here she looks washed out and from this picture Id call her cream:

Here she is as a puppy (with her black nose). At one point she almost had a pink tinge (it shows in this picture)


For some reason this picture of her is the closest to her actual color. maybe because it was a very bright day and she is in filtered light?


Here's another



LOL! Any reason to post a pic.
Hope that helps!

You should search for Journeys pictures. She is very, very dark apricot or light red- a gorgeous color!

I have a question, I was talking to outwest and other people, in previous posts about the "sharpie pen black nose", has it ever happened to one of your dogs that the nose turned into a dark brown with time, instead of staying that deep black? (picture), and if that happens, it's still ok with the standards of the breed? (but not desirable?) (it doesnt matter to me, black or brown nose dont matter, Im just curious)

Oh and yeah... she really looks apricot, but Im posting a picture here of her hair, how it is darker closer to the skin - the "dirty light brownish color" LOL

And the other pictures I just took outside :-) looking very apricot to me today LOL

Lou has a really nice black nose. She is also darker in color than Bonnie. Hopefully, she will keep her black nose. Some of them do. Bonnie has lost it some, but like I said, she didn't start losing it until over a year old. Hers was just as black as Lou's, so that shade of black doesn't seem to matter. It isn't pink, but a dark brown/black. Her lips and eye rims are staying very black. A brown nosed apricot is a fault if born with a brown nose, but it isn't a disqualification. Bonnie did very well in the UKC conformation ring. Bonnie's nose now would go against her in a show ring, but it is better than many I have seen. I will cross my fingers that Lou keeps hers!
