when we picked out our cockapoo, cori, she was very red

she slowly got lighter and lighter

i couldn't find a picture of her color now but it is similar to the one above. Her ears and some of her beard are still as red as she originally was but the rest of her body is buff except for a darker line down her back and a creamy white chest i usually just think of her as buff but she has the what and the red fur also. What would you call that, Is it just buff?

These kinda show it. Her back is dark and her chest and stomach is very light. Her face is light, her ears and beard are dark.

Hi Emma,

Cori is beautiful x - her colour is known as "blonde".

The puppy pic shows her to be a dark solid blonde - some normally refer to it as "apricot" - most darker blonde puppies seem to lighten up over time - and the paler ones often darken slightly equally.
It is one reason why we have put "Who's Who" onto our website - so show people how our dogs develop xxx

I agree with you, breeding all the different colours is fascinating. Have a nice holiday. Julia x

She's beautiful!! Bella is just the opposite. She started out dark chocolate brown and now has lighter areas on her back and neck with her legs, underside, ears and nose still being really dark. I love the variety!

Yes I would call her Blonde... Buff .. or Cream

Different breeders use different names for this creamy colouring and it can range from very light cream to a almost light apricot colour ... pick which name you like best for it and call her that .. as it all equates to the same colour :)

There is no right and no wrong in what you call it btw xxxx
