I will admit, my favorites are the blue merles, and the tricolors second. I'm not a huge fan of the sables, so that's probably the color that I'd end up with.

I should also mention that it will be some time before I am serious about buying a pup, I'm thinking 3 to 5 years.

Just found out last night that Harry's grandmother just passed away at 16. I won't tell my husband. It will just depress him to think about 10 more years with Harry.

It's funny, in smooths sables are usually my favorite color. I think there isn't a cuter puppy out there than a sable smooth collie puppy at 6-8 wks old. OMG, they just melt me. Their little mask starts to come in and their ears are starting to go up... SO adorable! in my opinion.

However, I LOVE this blue smooth bitch puppy in my litter (the one trying to escape!) every time I look at the babies, I am drawn to her. Plus she is feisty and I like them that way!!! not that the others aren't too.

Also.. my "sable" puppies are actually sable merles.

As far as roughs go, Blue merles and tri-colors are my favorite color, but I love mahogany sables as well!!

I'm trying to hold off for another year or two, too. But it's so hard! I think a collie might be a great fit for me (and Bailey!).

I love the puppy pictures! The little guy on the left in the second picture is killing me.

Thanks so much for the information, Spiritwind!

The sable pups ARE cute! I could be drawn in by a sable merle with blue eyes easily. I'm a sucker for blue eyes.

But again, a good dog is whatever color it happens to be. When I got my AmStaf, I told the breeder that I didn't want a red or fawn. She'd only ever produced blacks and blues, and his parents were a black and a blue. I figured that I was stacking the deck in my favor. He was the only fawn in the litter. The breeder had two more litters before she passed away, both of which consisted of only blacks. Today people are still skeptical when I tell them where I got him, as he's the wrong color for that kennel.

Oh I agree.. I wouldn't pick a dog based on color. A good Collie can't be a bad color!!

Though I will pass on the sable merle with blue eyes LOL I'm hoping mine have mostly dark eyes. I prefer dark eyes on blues as well.

I have to admit, though I was very happy to see Amos (sable smoothie) was available when I first checked out Moxie Collies, I was kind of wishing (to myself) a tri-color would be available. And then *poof* I was offered Logan I adore Tris, but I also love merles of any color.
