Going to upload some pictures of Monty please bare with me!!!


Is he black? is he black with a fading grey gene? Is he going to turn silver?

Or as I suspect remain black with a silver hue as he is now?

He is 4 and started getting silver/grey bits around 18 months. Some days he looks blacker and others greyer!!!

Picture 1



Picture 2



Picture 3




Picture 4 taken a couple of days ago:

What does he look like close up? Does he have a combination of all black and all silver hairs or are they different colours along the hair shaft? Not that I can give you an answer but I just wondered! :)

He gets more grey/silver as his coat grows and he has a silver willy and bum :D

It looks like separate hair colour??

Coco has gone grey/silver not sure what you would call it. He is chocolate and only 9 months old. His head is still chocolate. It only happened when he had a hair cut but he is getting more grey, he'll look really old soon.

Maybe one of his parents has the silvering gene ... I think it's attractive. Bess's dad poodle is chocolate with the silvering gene so maybe the same will happen to her coat when she's a bit older ... I'd be happy if it does :)

Right could Monty possibly be a blue?

have a look at these pictures of blue poodles and the ones of two together show the difference between blue and black.

Oh Wispa sounds silver beige .. I would love to see pics :) I need Silver Beige for the CCCC (cockapoo coat colour catalogue) to keep the lovely Pebbles company :) if Wispa would like to take part of course :)

I love Monty's colouring .. it is only clear now in these pics that he has a dark grey tone with lighter silver in areas.. I would say it is has something to do with a fading gene somewhere in his background, as he is 4 years old he may not fade anymore, but he was solid black as a puppy ...

I will wait to see what others think Shirley but I think we should move Mr Monty to the silver section, what do you think? .. I will need your support yet again and would ask you to email the first 3 pic here.. so we can update the catalogue ...

I love his coat is it a dark grey :) gorgeous :) it has faded which in my mind is a fading gene, I saw a goldendoodle with the very same colouring a dark silver stunning coat ... I want Monty xxx

Caption contest!

If he could only tell us what is going through his mind when you took that photo.......

Would it have been....

a) I have heard of Puss in Boots but this is ridiculous!

b) I will just die if she puts this photo on her bloomin forums!

c) I asked for pink ones!

Answers below please...;) :D

He has got one bootee on now as he is scratching his bad ear.

I tell you he loves it!! hubby took it off to take him walkies and he had a sad face.

As I have said before if he was a person he would be Alan Carr.:D

I like your thinking ...

Which one is Monty...

Blue which is a dilute of black with fading gene
... or
Silver which is a dilute of black with fading gene

He is not black .. although was solid black as a puppy ... ummm ..

He looks Dark Silver/ Grey to me .. :) but hey what do I know lol ...
