I think I mentioned this before. This Midas pup is a real interesting color. I think I've seen Lacys look like him before -- with a dark, rusty red coat and darker back. Anyone know what causes this coloring or what it's called?

Here's a profile. You can kinda see how his muzzle is a little darker.

And here's looking at his back. He has a stripe down the middle of his back that appears to be red with a blue undercoat. It goes all the way down to his tail, which is tri-colored.

I would like to say I have an answer to that BUT he needs to grow a little more first.. ;)
Good looking pup Rach!

I can tell you this..he is not a reverse tri... 8-| :))
Jagd had a slender dark streak down his back...

Midas' coloring is a lot like Sunny's. Here's a picture of her when she was about his age:

And here's her now:

It's just a darker strip that runs from between her shoulders down her tail. I'm not sure what causes it or what it's called...Julie may could help us with that. It's definitely not ideal and I'd prefer that she didn't have it.

I believe Sunny and my Luna were both sired by Luke. Luna has something like you describe. I am sure someone with a deeper understanding of dog color traits could explain better but it is like Luna has a lot of blue mixed in with the red. I tell her she has pretty makeup. ;)

That being said, I think Sunny and Midas are beautiful dogs and I love their conformation.

You're right, Courtney. Sunny & Luna are half sisters.
