ee red to ee cream?

Post  AlaskanLowrider on Tue Mar 29, 2011 9:13 pm

I understand "ee"'s pretty well but this throws me for a loop - "Tinny" (was Deborah) was a pretty ee red:
8 weeks - nursed from a raw fed dam and weaned on Solid Gold Wee bites and not too happy freezing in 20 degree weather for better pictures to determine coloring


At 10 months ...a bit orange but still a pretty red - fed Eukaneuba dachshund formula


At 15 months ....appears to be cream - fed RAW and not too happy about being handled


I took all of these photo's myself thanks to her families patience allowing me to keep going over her so I know they weren't altered.

I know some food additives can turn a light coat darker but ee red to ee cream? I also know with ee's whether cream or red thier coats get darker with age not lighter. Despite her current coloring I am not changing her coat color as she was clearly an ee red. I had the same problem with her momma (Chloe) going from chocolate/tan to chocolate/cream looking - The more I think of it and watching Phoebe
(same mom - different dad....no 2nd "e" or cream involved - piebald and dilute instead) - she looks just like Chloe but with better coat and really tan (almost red) points....Do you think food has something to do with Tinny's coloring or "ee" genetics turning some reds to creams or an unsolved mystery or am I looking too deep again?

How bizarre. We always see the puppies born cream colored and then redden up, but you don't see the reverse too often. She has a beautiful head, BTW. Very Happy

Exactly ! It is very bizarre - I always thought ee's deepened to red and not lightened to cream so this is very puzzling. I thought it was the food but if it was then she would have been cream colored when solely nursing but she wasn't : [url=
So I am not sure what is going on here - she was switched from Solid Gold to Eukaneuba due to money then suffered allergies while on it so they switched her to raw after I got them in contact with my farmer suppliers for a healthier and cheaper alternative because of the allergies from kibble - they didn't want to sacrifice her health due to budget - I am going to have a CBC panel done to see if she is lacking any nutrients which could be causing this as I am not sure and want a complete picture especially since I am thinking of line breeding her progeny if it all works out

Just got the results of her CBC ....everything is normal so she isn't lacking any nutrients - truly bizarre. She is the only one out of her litter that has done this ....there was only 1 full color one - a pretty black/cream out of 7. The lightest one (very light eggshell) is now a pretty light cream and the others turned red. I'll have to do some investigating this winter when I have the time for some intense research
