The little chameleon is a sable with the black edged sable ears (which are prick because I chose not to tip.) As a baby, he looked a little like Barley does in his pictures. The breeder said that he would lighten though. (I guess its because of his father.) His dad is a goldenish sable and has Paray and some Jade Mist lines in his pedigree. His mom is tri-factored with Jesstar and some Apple Acre lines in her past. Over the months, Blaze did lighten. His sides are now a "coffee au laite", but his back remains that dark color (mainly because of some black guard hairs making their appearance.) His tail is the most interesting though. I first noticed a glossy, blacker than black spot halfway up his tail. I've never seen a black so dark. It was beautiful. Then it spread throughout the tail (not the white tip of course). But as it spread a light cream has made its appearance exactly where the black spot started and the cream is mixing with the deep black (but right now, not enough to overpower it.) Honestly it's beautiful. But I have no idea if it will stay. Now it's obvious that Blaze will not look like either his dad--or mom, but what do you all think? Will his dad win out or his mom? Or do I just get to enjoy the changing many faces of Blaze?
