I ran into Olive a couple of times over the last few weeks, and I can tell you that she is even prettier in person than she is in pictures, and super-sweet to boot. The fur color is hard to describe, and not terribly well-represented in these pictures (too much sun!). It’s like she’s got a thousand different shades of gold going on all at the same time. It’s so gorgeous, and I’ve almost never seen anything like it. (I keep feeling like I have, but I can’t remember when or where.) If any of the dog-genetics-experts are still poking their heads into this blog ever, maybe we can get someone to weigh in on what’s going on here.
Oh, mom said that she might have some terrier and cocker spaniel in her, as well as Lab and poodle, if that helps any.
We’ll be seeing more of Olive tomorrow, along with a friend.
