  • Parti poos

    I am a snob I guess, I love sables of certain breeds, but not poos. Sweet littledog , good owners, just wish she was'nt so muddy looking. Do'ntkill me,I just like solid colored poos. Hope it's not to small.

    So what is the big deal. You have a color preference. It's not the breed or the personality. You might like a tan dog and the next gal doesn't. I don't like grey dogs and I'm sure many of you don't like brindle or black or blue and red and purple and green and orange..... I could go on and one. Seems not only are we dealing with natural color but in the show ring the color of the rainbow.

      odette, I think the dog on your picture is not sable it is a brindle. Most long coated brindles look muddy like that.
      I believe that color is secondary to conformation and while I like most particolors I don't particularly like dark brindle or sable poodles ether. But I saw two very pretty ones at competitions. One was red sable toy with black ears and stripe on the back he looked very sharp and other one was a standard that was very light brindle (cream and blue) tuxedo.

        Yeah I love the red sables and really light sables, that girl looks like she'd be cuter with a shorter cut. Looks like she got into the black hair dye and missed a few spots

        I would love to see pics of a blue brindle poo, that sounds gorgeous! Of course my faves are the merles. But, then I love anything blue or merle be it kitty, chicken, or dog!

          I'm with Lexapurple, that dog looks like a brindle. I consider a parti to be 2 very distinct color changes, like the parti pom I groom. He is chocolate and white and I think he is beautiful and kind of unique looking. I also agree with taking the poodles coat shorter, you may see an nice brindle pattern emerge if you get some of that coat off rather than a muddy looking color.

                Okay, that is one cute pup! Poor Maggie is just muddy looking, mom was blk, brwn, whte. Dad was black. At least Maggie isgood to groom andhas o.k. coat, at 6 mths and spayed we shall see. Older owners dote on her and that is all that matters. I love strue sables, some brindles, and all solid colors on most breeds.

                  Just to educate, and again, I thought I posted this yesterday, but it went to POOF yard......Parti dogs are white dogs with patches of color, either solid or brindle, and the standard for cockers states the color section must make up at least 10% of the dogs body. In MANY breeds parti is a common color, like cockers, poodles and shihtzu, pekes, poms, and the like. In none of those breeds is parti linked to blindness, deafness or anything else genetic. In Cockers, as I have stated before, it can be a nutty color, mentally, but not healthwise.

                    To add to the educational aspect here; a sable coat is banded, light at the base, dark or black at the tips. Most sable coats have only two bands of color, but a few will show three. If the dog has undercoat, the base of the guard hair is the same color as the undercoat. When clipped, the sable coat will appear uniformly light.

                    Brindle coats are tiger striped, with distinctly different colored stripes. It's possible to have a sable brindle, but not often seen.
