Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hey guys ! So Kai's coat is beginning to change at 11 weeks.
His head fur is getting darker and the white fur is now white instead of a creamy colour.

But he is starting to get dark patches, theres one big one between his shoulder blades.
Theres a ridge of dark red down his back and either side of it theres flecks of dark fur. Its sort of like red fur but the tips are dark almost black.

Do you think he could turn sable ?

Do not think he will be sable - his points are liver, sable dogs have black points.

Ami is a light red and now that his undercoat is half gone, I was very surprised to see the same dark hair in the same pattern that you describe.  His undercoat is a beautiful light cream.

Ooh right ! I dont think he'll be sable but I do think that his back will have some sort of dark stripe (hard to tell since he's so young)

Ami is gorgeous ! I love his coat  Smile 
Thanks for the input !!

With Liver points he will turn out to be a red.

Honestly Sibe puppies go through the weirdest stages in their coats as they grow, I wouldn't pay too much attention to the dark at the mo, you will find his coat will change almost weekly Smile

My boy is a dilute black and white and he went through a stage as a pup with red on top of his head and down his neck and in his hindquarters and tail, he looked ridiculous - now he just has a sandy color above his hocks and a touch behind his ears in summer. His sister on the other hand is a light red and at one stage had a darker more pronounce stripe down her back than Orion did, yet now she is a beautiful golden honey color.

Kai is just gorgeous by the way, enjoy puppyhood!
