Default thanks ya'll I think she's a cutie

I just love her so much I wouldn't have thought I could get so attached to a dog so quickly. She is so sweet and she has such a cute personality.

Talking Blue Chi

Jake is a blue Chi! I never had a chihuahua before and didn't know he was any different til I took him for his first check up! He also is a little deformed and the Vet said it could be because they breed them to be this color! His bottom Jaw didn't grow and he can't shut his mouth so his tongue hangs out all the time! And his ears are busted! HAHA They don't stand up. And of course the laxated patella! On both knees! That just makes him the best dog in the world to us! He is so sweet too!

Isabella (also known as Lilac) is a coat color. It is a double dilution of the black gene (it is denoted as being ddbb genetically).

It is rare and very pretty in person. Our male Geddy has actually stopped traffic on several occasions as people want to see him, take photos etc. I could have paid off the mortgage on our farm for what one person from California offered us for him but we wouldn't sell him to anyone - he is our little man and I waited 4 years to get the "perfect" Lilac from our breeding program.

Here are a few photos of Geddy. He is a Lilac male with the Irish/Border Collie markings which means that he has white: on all four paws (like socks), on the tip of his tail, on his face (in a blaze and around his nose), on his chest and on his neck (he has a cross shape on the back which is considered a half-collar).

In most lighting you can markedly see he has a purple tinge to his coat.

His eyes are extremely light blue (almost transparent) - in some lighting situations it makes them appear purple (as they are so translucent you can see the blood flowing in his eyes and with the blue it "mixes").











If I had a Chocolate Chihuahua to add to the last photo - you would see a very marked difference in the appearance of Lilac/Isabella, the Fawn and the Chocolate.

Chocolates technically could get Alopecia but in Chihuahuas it is mainly seen in blues. There hasn't been a Chocolate yet that I am aware of that has presented with Alopecia but again, since it is a dilute it is possible.

Zoey's mom was lilac and her dad was a lc black/tan. It seems to me she has a slight silver color under her fur on her skin.

Thank you for the explanation orchardlane. The Lilac color is beautiful. Do you have pics of Geddy when he is older? Love to see them.

I love the picture showing the chihuahua colors side by side. Wish we had one with a whole range of chi colors. Thanks OrchardLane!
