I am getting my first sable in a month and I was wondering if anyone could post up their (sable) dogs' before (puppy pics) and after pictures so I can get an idea of how their fur patterns change/transform. Thanks! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/popcornSmiley.gif Wouldnt mind seeing the black and reds either /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/01_smile.gif

hehe..ours is 6 mo and has already changed a lot.. here is a bit of a taste how they change (at least from 8 wks to 6mo) I'm excited to see how little Kelso turns out! you should be too! they also look VERY different in different lighting. But, they are all beauts!
4-5wks (the one with his tongue out)


4 wks again



7 wks...dark and very small



10 wks,, after a bought of coccidia and BLOWING COAT



a little later..still that tongue is out!



only a few weeks later....weird huh?





NOW, at 6 mo

Here is Kessy at 9 weeks



4 months



9 months


14 months - taken this morning, sorry for the bad pic but she would not be still and I had no help!


I also was trying to get a good headshot...and then when I was reviewing them on the computer I found a pic with the exact same expression as one of her puppy pics. Not the most flattering 2nd pic, but I thought it was cute /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/15_ssst.gif



And a better headshot..

GSD,
See i warned you how much they change /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/05_biggrin.gif I used to flip between pictures thinking, ok, he acts the same, but is that really the same pupster?? HEHE ..take lots of pics..it is fun to watch...err..see in pics cause you will NOT remember you will think he/she always looked the same! THanks for the compliment, he prob will be a big boy..at least that is what everyone says! And ULTRO...hubba..hubba..me thinks our pups look a little alike..and Cassidy's mom..such a pretty gal...but ..heh.. maybe i'm partial to sables /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/15_ssst.gif I'm sure you will have your sable by then..but i will be sure to post pics as our's grows!! enjoy the puppiness!

phgsd....
hey man, i hope you are not serious..you dog is BEAUTIFUL..i was just looking through posts..not meaning to offend you or anything..i just remembered some people from previous posts...and when i hit the send button, i thought, "i know I forgot to mention someone"....seriously your girl is a beaut..and i know like you said she can work..our little pupster cannot yet, so more power to you...this was not supposed to be an offending post, and if it has been worded in the wrong way than by all means let me know! Sables are sables..and as a matter of fact as an owner of a b/t i Personally think everyone is beautiful in their own way! and their is no doubt in my mind that your gal could work my guy under the table (she looks all hot and slim and trim and he is a fatso..we are working on that!)

No "man" here, I am a she! lol

And no offense taken, I was not kidding about her being pretty ugly. From about 6 months to 1 yr we have very few pics because of how awkward and gangly she was. She is finally starting to come together now though, so hopefully I can get better shots of her. My "good" digital is broken and needs to get repaired..the one I'm using atm eats through batteries in about 10 minutes /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/09_mad.gif

I haven't seen a unattractive GSD yet and certainly none on this thread. I am very surprised at how much these sables changed as they aged - one minute they are dark, the next they are light, then they change back and forth - not only in shading but markings. What stunning dogs! Gotta say I am very impressed. I know colour is probably the least important characteristic but hey, my sense of sight is very much pleased by these dogs.

I've also just be looking at some breeders websites including Wildhaus Kennels and Eichenluft and the dogs shown are exceptional.

I can't believe I missed this thread!!! I have 2 sables...Caesar has the tan/reddish stocking legs and Brutus has the black striping on his legs. Their father was a black and tan saddle and their mom was sable. The majority of their litter was sable (the dominant color).

8 weeks - first day home...
