The 3 Huskies-looking ones that are on the right end, all started rather dark.
(from l to r) Zappa, Grumpy and Blaze on the end.
Zappa carried a red tone while Blaze had a silver-grey tone.
This pic is at about 4 days old.
This is Zappa (left) and Blaze (right).
In this pic, at 6 days old, they look like twins.
You can see how the grey undertones are starting and that her fur is beginning to lighten from the heavy grey in first pic.
This is at three weeks old and she has turned to a silver -grey.
She still has the rust color on the top of her head and ears.
It is obvious why we named her Blaze. :)
From 6-8 weeks, this is how we remembered her before she left with her new family.
A soft blend of greys, rust and cream colors.
And the comparison of Zappa and Blaze together. (8 weeks old)
So when we visited her at 4 mos. old, this was the shock we had!
She had lightened into this cream color as the dark greys around the face were beginning to fade.
While the "blaze" on her nose was swept away into her white muzzle.
The grey's had softened and filled in around the face and neck while her ears took a little darker in the rust color when she came back home to live with us at 7 months old.
And here she is today. You can see the reddish-orange mixed with that luscious golden color and the gentle grey that still frames her face. Depending on the light she can seem to sparkle with a hidden rainbow of colors or while in the shadows the grey undertones give the appearance of being a dirty off-white.
