Silver Beige....

Was he really dark chocolate? Or, was he a cinnamon brown color? What color were his parents?

I think the below picture is an example of Cafe.

Silver beige.

Was her face lighter as a pup? You can usually tell coat color as puppies by their face colors.

That is why I would be afraid of buying a brown puppy :rolffleyes: You never know to what color it would turn in couple of years :smow:

Actualy when my husband realized that we couldn't promise the brown puppy I had fallen in love with would stay dark brown he refused to let me have her :( He knows me to well I guess, besides I really wanted a silver and he knew that too, so Saleen was the puppy he insisted on.

That's why it's hard for me to even tell if a dog is brown of cafe. Honestly that cafe au lait dog looks like a faded brown. How would you ever tell the difference? Is it the points of the dog being black in browns and brown in cafes?

'cafe, compared to brown', is just like 'blue, compared to black.' in that the colour change is more gradual (can take a few years to clear properly), and the final colour is usually a meduim shade of the original brown/black

'Silver beige, compared to brown', is just like 'silver, compared to black.' in that the colour change is much quicker, usually showing on a shaved face by 6 weeks of age, and is a very pale/washed out version of the orignal brown/black.

Browns often fade, and so do blacks, that is not the same as cafe/blue or silverbeige/silver. :p

This is what she looked like at 3 months old, dark chocolate. I have a feeling that she might be cafe au lait
