Would we say a dark apricot is a red????
I wouldn't - to me the reds are deep, rich auburn with little colour variation like Miley and some of Jandaz's where the apricots have a softer tone with some range of darker apricots through to dark buff. That's just how I think of it though :)

I would describe Oakley as red and white whereas Flo is much lighter but not buff/cream. It will be interesting to see how Remy develops - I'm expecting slightly darker than Flo but not that deep solid red as she already has lighter tones showing through her coat.

So Oakley puppy is Red rather than Apricot like MandyM's Miley, and your Remy (sounds good, your Remy) being the darker shade of Apricot .. the only way to really tell is to know all the colour history for each dog ..

I will love watching these puppy coats to see if they change ...addicted to cockapoo coat colours :)

I think it's a bit subjective :confused: that's just how I think of it really. I think describing the colours from red through apricot to buff is in the eye of the beholder.

When Flo had her first vet visit the vet put red and white on her records but I've never thought she was red. The breeder described her as gold and I'd call her apricot.
