I like any well put together poodle no matter what color.

For colors, I like apricot the best, but pitch black is another color I would like. After having mine start turning light orangy and shimmering in the sunlight, I can't think of a prettier color except one that was two shades darker. Mine is a dark cream bordering apricot. I know clear colors are preferred, but shadings are so nice. I love the variations sometimes found on apricots, especially the ears. I wonder why apricots shimmer when the sun hits them? Do some reds do this, too? At first I thought maybe it was my spoos food causing her hair to glow, but now I have noticed all apricots seem to do the same thing. Am I correct?

Are there other colors that shimmer in the light? Maybe milky creams do?

Hi Outwest:

Yes, the sun on an apricot really shimmers, most reds have that same affect. I think the sun on sun color has that shimmering affect. A nice line of standard poodles of black, white, aprioct or red standing in the morning sun, during a show,,,, that apricot/red catches the sun and shines.

outwest, I am going to say that my silver beige girl shimmers. She's clearing quite quickly, and is now more beigey than the cafe/apricot appearing color she was as a younger puppy. But there is a definite shimmer to the beige, which is why I think the color is called SILVER beige.

I couldn't possibly have a favorite poodle color, I love them all. I posted this before: I wish I could have one of every color. Since that's not a possibility, I'll enjoy all the beauties on this forum.

I think all the colors are beautiful and, of course, the color only accentuates the beautiful personality and soul that each of our poodles has. I think it is really unfair to ask which color we like more.......sort of like asking someone if they prefer to date blondes or brunettes. Of course, lots of men will say this or that, but that is so superficial --- I vote for the color of love, loyalty, intelligence and personality that comes with each poodle we have. I have had a brown poodle, a black poodle and now a cream (apricot) and honestly, all that shines through is the personality -- how can anyone judge by color?

I love the hard to find colors...lol
A really vivid red with "sharpie black nose"
Or a very blue Blue LOL...

I prefer black points on all poodles.

I love apricots, my Lou is apricot. I think its sooooo gorgeous, like she is a Blondie! kinda strawberry blonde!

I dont like partis too much.... Ive never been able to find a parti with a white face, they always have a dark colored face, and white on random parts of their bodies and Ive always wanted to see a parti with a white face! (They are still great, jut not my favorite)

But in the end of the day I just love standard poodles period! :-)

I think that's because they're not 'supposed' to have white faces.

I love em all.

My fave is a parti, but I'm very particular. I prefer even amounts of black, red or any DARK colour and white. Sometimes I'll like a parti with more white than colour, the lines must be CRISP, with ZERO ticking, and of coarse, I, like many before me on this thread would want jet black points through the whole life of the dog!

After that, I think I'd like ice white, jet black points, ZERO staining of eyes or mouth. Mmmm, fun to dream of the "perfect" looking dog!
