Hi, I have an adorable little man named BlingBling. The breeder registered him blue in AKC. I think he may be lavender? I'm really not sure what color he is. I was wondering what the people here think. Does akc even accept lavender? There was no choice for it on his form. Thank you in advance.

He's a beautiful blue, lavender is a made up color by breeders trying to charge more for so called 'rare' colors.

What a cute lil BLUE! Yes, blue:) I have a lil blue guy too, Ziggy. He is lovely. They say the blue's have more chance for skin conditions, but mine has beautiful skin and coat too:D I'm really proud of him (and the rest of my crew) and will one day post pic's when I get the hang of it--lol.

The others are correct. Precious little blue baby!
Pam is right-no lavender. Except the sweet one on this board who's name is actually Lavender. She is legit! haha!

Looks like the lil nose is chocolate, so I'm not sure what color I'd call him. : )

If I'm not mistaken his dilute/base color has to be Chocolate to have the Chocolate colored nose. Blues have dark Grey/Blue/Black noses. Maybe I'm wrong. :/

His nose looks blue to me. Different monitors show colors (reds especially) differently so I guess the only person who can see the color of his nose is the OP. I do know when my blues were getting their pigment in their noses--it had a purple-y or even a more chocolatley look until it got a bit darker. But who knows--maybe his nose is chocolate & my monitor is just showing a more blue hue to the pic making it look blue to me. :)

His nose is a chocolate color and his coat has a brownish sheen to it.
Thank you for the compliments! As soon as I saw him, I knew I had to have him. He's a big momma's boy. I can't even go to the bathroom without him. He does like others too though.

As he ages his Chocolate color will come in better, I'm thinking. : ) He could even turn a Red fawn. My little boy had a lot of that "blue" color to him as a pup, but we knew he would turn either a more chocolate color, or Red fawn due to his nose color. : )

His little pads on his paws give it away too. They appear to be reddish brown. : )

He looks blue-grey, the same color when Bella was a pup. Bella's coat changed into a richer chocolate blue when she turned 1 year old. :)
