To clarify matters....

There's been a little bit of confusion as to what colour I actually am. Oorvi asked the question in one of her comments if I was a "glamorous steel blue or a warm chocolate brown."

I have a diagram. I like diagrams, they help so much. Oorvi, and everypuppy else, my registered colour is black. You can really see it on this picture here. Black Peis look great on snow.I was just a puppy then so my colour really was intense. Even Grandmama has commented that I've changed colour since I was teeny tiny.

So this is me now. I'm still considered black, but I have all sorts of colourish bits. Oh, and a waggy bit and an investigating bit. My investigating bit gets me into all sorts of wonderful smelling things.

On top of that, Shar Peis are one of two breeds, that I know of anyway, that have a naturally blueish/purpleish tongue (the other one that I know of is the Chow). My tongue doesn't always have it's full colour. When I'm hot and panting, it's pink. I'll stick my tongue out at Mommy today and ask her to get a picture. It's such a trial getting that new camera into her hands (sarcasm alert!).

Right. Adventures await! Sniff ya later!

I didn't know about the tongue. Can't wait to see a picture of that! My mom thinks you definitely should make a book just of nose/snooter shots. She would buy it!

love & wags,

We at our house love all of your colors! The tongue was new to us! We can't wait to see it. I only have a spot on mine. (grandma says that is NOT normal) So sorry to hear your mom can't seem to get that camera in her hand fast enough to follow your every move. teehee
smooches to you,
