Is Misty a Red or Blue Merle?
by Jeanette Dubela
Misty is now nine months old and we are still scratching our heads as to whether she is a Red or Blue Merle. At 10 weeks when she came home it was obvious that she was a beautiful blue with no copper trim. Then her dark lips and nose began to get lighter. Soon dilute copper was coming through all over. She still looks blue at first glance but in the light she is red, her base hairs are grayish... and her nose is dark brown, not black. What do you think?
