Hi everyone. Can you share your experiences with Browns? I know they fade over time, and to what degree cannot be predicted, but I'd be interested in hearing what others have experienced. Thanks.

My Little Anderson will be 2 years old in early January. He is still a dark rich brown. In the past couple of months I have noticed some lighter colored guard hairs, so perhaps the fading is beginning!

I think browns are an adventure!

Does anyone know when the fading stops? I have a 2 1/2 year old cream. I am hoping she will continue to fade, right now she just looks dirty all the time... before knowing alot about poodles, Creams were my favorites. I don't think there is a prettier color for a puppy, but as an adult it is NOT my favorite!

Interesting that you want the fading to continue. I have always wanted Cammie to stop fading. I love the rich caramelly tones in her coat. She is a year and a half now and she's mostly faded to a creamy white with just a bit of color left on her ears. Here are photos of her fading: 2 months, 4 months, 9 months, 12 months and 18 months.

Not all browns fade. The breeder of my dogs has a brown she kept and he hasn't faded one bit, but he is a little under 2 years old. Browns are clowns they say. My experience is there is some truth to that. They are active, funny, entertaining and take a special human who appreciates their silly natures.

edit: My 'cream' didn't fade and turned into an apricot. Her color continues to get richer. She is clearly a light apricot, not a cream or white. I think she is a delicious color.

I love the gold color and the creamy tans, but my girl does not look like that. She just looks like a white dog that needs a bath... I want her to go one way or the other, darker or lighter, but I hope she doesn't stay where she is .

You can't really tell in the photos, but she does look very dirty around her ears and on her back mainly. She is tan in spots just like a dog needing a bath. It very much takes away from her looks.

Cream can be a very pretty color, but it can also look like top ramen color with splotches. You don't know exactly what your cream will end up like. My sister in laws cream and Leeumans cream turned stark white- very pretty. Bonnie turned darker and darker until it was clear she was not really a cream after all. My last standard was cream who turned very white, but when she was old she got weird orange splotches that looked almost like pee stains.

Carley's mom, she looks beautiful in her picture!
