I used to be captivated by silver. But, I must say that "ice white" is absolutely stunning? Also, what's the difference between snow white and ice white?
At any rate, I think I gotta have that ice white.
I want to know what those show dogs look like in between shows. Do they go around with their hair all bound up? Max looks great for about a day, then back to looking like a ragamuffin. I'm new to poodles so I don't know if it is that he still has the puppy coat, or that I didn't dry him quite right? By the time I brush the 4th leg, the first one looks like it hasn't been done!
Well your sort of right in that whites are white but depending on their pigment some can look whiter then others. For example:There actually is no such thing as Ice White or Snow white. Thats just people trying to describe the color. Its either white or creme. When you see the show Poodles on TV (dog shows) they are white and jet black like that because they dye or chalk the coat. Usually a black show coat is dyed prior to the show so its jet jet black. In AKC they do tons of things you wouldn't believe. (extentions, dyeing hair, blackening the nose in, etc) UKC doesn't allow the hairspray, chalking, coat shine, etc. However its still done....just not at the show.

Right, like I said whites are white just some are more intense then others. People/breeders like to label colors so buyers will think they are getting something special :shot:Yes, some dogs pigments are different then other's but that doesn't mean they are anyless a white or creme. I was refering to the actual coat color not skin pigment. Don't take that wrong....Im not trying to sound rude. lol
You know your stuff around hear which is great. I looked at a show potential pup on Sunday and the lady was calling it a Champaign. OMG! It was a creme...lol I didn't even bother correcting her at that point. I also turned down her pup and she was shocked. She said she was so picky and her pups where beautiful. Well not good enough for me.
Thats whats awefull about getting into showing dogs in conformation. You pick apart every dog you see. I was never like this before showing dogs. Now when I see a dog Im like aww, its toed out, bad top line, bad bite, bad head, color is incorrect, etc. Its sad but you can't help it. Im lucky none of my dogs have turned out bad....so lucky.
