I certainly agree that Libby is a red brindle and it’s a really pretty color, and chocolate (little Molly) is one of my most favorite things, but I think Chase is a bronze brindle with burnishing. He looks like a weathered church bell that shows streaks of gold where it has rubbed against the rope. Yep! He is definitely a bronze brindle with burnishing. He also tolls the hour early in the morning when he wants me to roll out of bed. I’ll go on a scouting trip this weekend and photograph some old bronze bells so we can compare the color.
Here’s an April photo of Chase in the sun wearing his tracking harness. He was five months old. Isn’t he a burnished bronze color? His adult coat has come in with some darker streaks.
