Here's the cairn color I want!


Recommended Posts

I hope I'm not hogging the board w/ pictures, but this one is too cool not to share. Hannah was sitting in the recliner staring out the glass door into the sunroom watching our cockatoo. The sun rays were shining in, really highlighting the cream in her coat. I took this picture w/ my digital and was really surprised to see how the sunrays must have been reflected through the camera making her coat red where the rays were hitting. Maybe it's because the rays were coming through the glass that made her red. I didn't do any photo enhancment to this picture. I love my little Hannah as a cream brindle, but she also would look good as a red brindle! :)


Also, I got looking at that picture I posted of Hannah's 1st b-day & realized that definitely isn't her best look. My dd had been playing w/ her & fluffed her hair up. At the time, I thought she looked so cute in her new collar, but she looks more like she's half Yorkie. :huh: I took another picture of her yesterday after playing that looks much more like her. She's still dark but has quite a bit of cream (w/ a little tan) now on her sides and auburn on her muzzle. Kayharley, I think her weight is around 10 lbs.

Love the photos! I like how Hannah looks so happy in the second photo. Whenever Alfie has that "smile", of course the camera isn't within reach! I love it when the cairns look happy in the photos.

Hannah looks like she's part cameleon and is blending in with the chair!! She's so cute!

Well my name's not brad :P - but I say you're NOT hogging the board with pics - I love seeing everyone's babies!

The coloring in the first picture IS pretty amazing. Kind of like a "try on hair dye' for dogs!

You can NEVER have too many pictures...I least I don't think we can!

Hannah looks too cute in this picture! Having a dog with lots of red highlights, I totally understand what you are talking about. They can go from one room to another and change a whole shade of color! Scout was all black as a puppy and she started getting cream and red highlights. If fact, she now looks like a billygoat because she has red hair coming in on her chin and when the light hits it it looks funny!

How cute! That is cool how the suns rays picked up other colors in the coat that you normally wouldn't notice! - Darsey

I love new pictures!

Rocky thinks Hannahs a babe, too :wub: Very pretty colors :)

The "cameleon" look is a good way of describing her in that picture, how cute! It's so funny how they can look so different in a particluar light or through life, you never know what kind of hair is going to pop up under that coat. I still have no idea what Rocky's going to look like later, the little guy's almost ten months old.

From what I have heard they can change off and on for a year or so..?? Cairns seem to be like "a box of chocolates, you never know what youre going to get" :D

I have a sweet sleeping picture I want to post of Rocky, as soon as I figure out how to make it small enough to add. (I forgot how to :huh: )
