Default Really an apricot ? Or cafe au lait with black points? intriguing and fun! opinions?

Im so curious about my Lou's color... here are some pictures of how her color changes depending on the light. I'm confused if she is really an apricot as her breeder and papers says because of the black points, or if she could possibly be a cafe au lait with black points... (this is intriguing and fun!)

Please share your thoughts !
And I love her regardless of color etc.... its just fascinating an makes me curious trying to figure it out!

I'd say apricot, with correctly coloured black points.

so if she eventually lightens to cream, she will still have the correct points? :-)

I think she will lighten to paler apricot - a very pretty pale golden colour.

Thank you!!! I was hoping for an answer from you ! ;-)

Even on that picture by the door/standing up? she has that "dirty look light brownish" sometimes, but still carries the "orangy/yellowy" as well...

When i spread her hair and look at the part closest to her skin is looks like she is getting darker... weird isnt it? like the ends of her hair are more light blondish and the hair closest to the skin is darker "dirty" looking LO

This is so exciting? Am I silly, do most people trip on how poodles color change? Or is it just me?! haha

Thanks again you guys!

Below, she is not that light at all... but in a bright day outside , ya know... the picture turns out like that

It is genetically impossible for a cafe au lait (brown spectrum poodle) to have black points! This dog is an apricot.

Apricots genetically can have brown or black points. Cafe au lait is a shade of "brown" and "brown" poodles genetically cannot have black points.

The reds and apricots are the hardest to photograph, and I swear, their colour changes depending on the room they are in. Sometimes even which part of the room they are in. But Lou is most definitely an apricot.

Thanks so much for the info! That is great info right there, Im studying... but there is soooooooooooo much to learn, I love it!

Oh! Her breeder didnt say that, about the cafe au lait thing.. The breeder said she is apricot, .... the cafe au lait thing was just me wondering because it looks very "light brownish" sometimes..

I just took this picture (I kinda brushed her) And by the way, her nose is the blackest black like it was colored with a black sharpie!

:-)
