Last night my little black female whelped 8 very beautiful and healthy pups, all of which are doing well! The question I have and I feel stupid for asking, is I am having trouble determining their color. The last two litters with Mattie I bred her to my yellow male and the pups were all black. This time I bred her to an MHR Choc. male, we knew we had a slight chance she was choc. factored. So here is the deal out of the eight pups she whelped last night four of them have dark brown noses. I mean they look completely different color than the pups with the black nose, however to look at the pups coats you can not see any brown at all. Just looking at the coat color they all look black as coal. Out of the last two litters (15 pups) never did one have a brown nose. So my question is do you think they are very dark choc. pups and the coat color will become noticalbe or are the black pups? I am not tyring to spam here but there two pictures of the pups up on my website. In two of the pictures you can get a pretty good idea at the differnt nose color. Honestly I think they are all black but the nose color is causing a question mark.
