Zeus is a blue Chi. You can see his picture in my signature. You can also do a search by my username and see multiple pictures that I've posted of Zeus. Hope to see pics of your Chi soon. :)

the blue can be anything from a dark slate blue to a light chocolaty blue, ive also found that alot of blues are actualy blue and chocolates (both dilutes) and depending on the blue shade the blue and chocolate can seem to blend together ina self colour with a chocolate sheene in one light and a blue sheen in another.

Vixie is blue sabled, but its difficult to see the blue in the pics as its mostly on the ears and tail tip and she is a dark steel blue (almost a blackish colour) over the red/fawn.
check the flesh blues tend to have a blue/grey tint to their flesh (vixie has a compltely blue belly and inside of ears lol) whereas the chocolates tend to have lighter pinkish flesh.
hope this helps. eitherway you love your puppy and thats all that matters!

she looks a dark black blue (or very dark slate) i odnt see too much chocolate in her coat chotolate would be a dilute tan colour rather than a blue.
gorgeous puppy, gonna have a nice full coat. and rember the coat can change a litle unitll there a year old (especially with longhaireds.)

I just wanted to share this information concerning blue Chihuahuas:

Blue is rare because it is associated with auto-immune problems. True blue dogs, which are actually dilutes, tend to have clumping of white blood cells. This phenomenon is associated with the dilution of pigment. Problems such as Alapecha (hair loss) manifest as a result. While the color may be pretty and it can be healthy, it is generally difficult to retain health when dealing with true blues. Most dogs that are called blue are actually due to the G series, the graying gene, and a gray and blue can look alike, phenotypically, but real blues, dilutes (which are found in doberman and chihuahuas), are subject to the health problems that go with the color. Blue Chihuahuas are not something you want to pay "Extra" for.
