The AKC registration asks for a color selection to be made when registering your IS.
The choices include Chestnut, Mahogany and Red...
I'd like to tell them it depends on the amount of light she's currently being exposed to (sun light, lamp light or dusk), if Willow needs a bath or has just taken one :) but unfortunately those aren't options....
So, post a pic and tell me, What Color is Your IS?
ROFL!! Sue your a riot! Lately my dog is orange. With red undertones. He is molting and will be shorn like a sheep soon. I agree he looks different in every light. I would pick red for this dog whereas my other setters were mahogany for sure.
Fred is red,Arthur is red and Ellie is now turning from red to a sort of red and beige! She started a gradual colour change after having pymetra five years ago
My wife's hair matches Arthur's and Fred's perfectly.
I did register her as red as her lineage contains the dog that starred in the Big Red movie and her parents are Brandies Red Rover and Tobias Red Rover... so I sent in the registration as Red... but this morning she looked Chestnut and last night she was Mahogany! LOL!!! I posted some new pics so perhaps you can tell me what she is? Not that it much matters now - the registration is in the mail ;)
I think the next time I'm at the salon I will bring her along, I could go for some red highlights :)
LOL! You hit that one on the head!
