When I originally was looking into buying my Birman, i wanted one with the darker features, and took moreso to the seal point.
My girl, Aiko is about 3.5 yrs old now.. i thought her main body color would get lighter as she got older, but it just seems to be getting darker and darker! It doesn't really matter to me, of course, but just curious why she is so dark. Do factors like temperature, etc effect how they develop their colors? I always thought maybe it was due to having hardwood floors, which are typically cooler than carpet.. or is it just genetics?
probably not the best picture to see.. but let me know what you think!
