I have a question. When I got my blue she was very silverish blue. No that she is older she has gotten extremly dark from her Ears back. the only way most people can tell she is blue is because she is standing next to a black/tan or if there is natural light shining off of her. Now hence the reason I got a black/tan puppy. so that people could tell the difference and well i just wanted a black and tan. Anyway. Is it normal for them to get so dark or do any of you find your Blue Dobe is the same as my girl... Her face is silverish and the rest is DARK DARK BLUE. hmm just a thought let me know please what you think or if you have the same problem.
