LOL... Hmmmm.... so whites don't fade, darn, and I thought they did, boy, I need to learn all this stuff. ound:I have only seen standard who kept his dark chocolate color as an adult. Most I've ever seen fade, that's just the way it is. Chocolates, reds, apricots, blacks - they all fade to certain degree. The only ones who don't get lighter are whites, but they can get darker/dirtier.
Seriously, that is the one thing that is cool and bad about the poodles. I think it is neat to watch a poodle clear to blue or silver, but would be nice if a nice apricot would stay that way throughout life. But, I don't love mine because of their color so may find it neat to have a "new" dog every so often...lol.
