Red or creme?

Post by Auddymay » Tue Oct 25, 2005 5:55 am

The breeder listed lily as a creme, but she has reddish highlights. When does red become red? At the riskof being chowlitically incorrect, I'd call her coloring champagne(but we know that isn't a real color, don't we...)

She actually looks like a Cinnamon to me.

I don't know!

Cinnamon or cream!

My Milly and Mabel are registered as red but I think they are cinnamon - but on The Island, they are red or red!! :D

The cinnamons seem to have a little more colour!

What the hell - she is lovely and what a pretty name. :)

Your chowling is cream. I'm looking at my guy and your baby's coloring is similiar to the tips and highlights on my fellows back. This has been more pronounced as he aged. If your chowling's undercoat is more in the cream tones then I would say baby is cream. I would also call it chowchow blonde. She's adorable. I just love those apricot ears that creams have!

I would say cream as well. Rogue is a cream chow -- and yes, he does look as though he's got splashes of red highlights in his tail!

Good luck with your chowling!

Cinnamon

In my opinion by observing many pics of different chows, she is most definitly a cinnamon. Cinnamons when they are born look cream evn mistakable to some breeders. Whens he is older you'll see she will darken, creams. espeacially pups look white, egg shell in color but may or maynot have highlights of red around the ears.

Thanks for all the replies! She doesn't have the dark mask that cinnies characteristically have, nor the 'fawn' coloring that separate them from reds. Hard to see in the pics I chose, I'm adding more, but until I upgrade to dsl next month, :oops: the uploads are as slow as my typing...lol

I'd say she is Creme.
I don't think she has much reddish highlights..
(But she does look a bit Cinnamon too)

This is Diego. He is Creme too, and as you can see, he is very dark.
But still creme.

Oh, my goodness, Judy. Wouldn't Diego be a nice chow son-in-law to have?! Such a handsome boy! He's in Norway and the girls are in Crew. Hmmm...

Taz, how old was Diego then (when he won BOS)? His coat is short, so I'm thinking he's young. Then again, I'm not familiar with the show circuit in Europe. Nonetheless, such a handsome fellow!

Yes, Diego is young.
He won the BOS on a puppy Show, but i'm stil proud of him. :D
(It was his first, and so far only show, new show on saturday)
*Wish me luck*
He is 9 months.
Diego's coat is short, even tho he lost his puppy coat a while ago.
But I think it will get a bit longer. :)

Another picture. What do you guys think?
Is he very different from the American/ English Chows?

Yes, I know he is standing a bit weird on the picture. :P

He is lovely - but his face is very much like Milly's! :)

Also, Lou, Milly and Mabel have a forever valentine as you very well know! :lol: :lol: And they would not two time him - in any case, he is too young - they are mature Chow ladies of 5.!! :D
