no one has anything to say?
I was looking at a article on here about puppies then and now, in the pictures the puppies looked darker so my question is do they lighten with age? or is every dog different? and at what age are they their permanent color?

They lighten up quite a bit actually. I like to think of it as the color spreads out, like a balloon. The balloon may be blue before you blow it up, but then it lightens when you fill it with air.
I have never thought of it that way but I like Lisa's @desertskybulldogs explanation. Pups go through a lot of change while they are growing and their color is one of them. Usually by 18 months they are the color they will be. Plus as they age they will get their skin spots.

Wilson's fur is all red on his body and the only part that lighted up that was noticable was his sides. When his sides starting lightening up a bit the darker red 2" stripe that goes down his back became more prominent. I'll have to post some before and after pics later for a comparison.

Lola was a fawn color when I picked her out but not she is turning a little red and kinds darker it seems. I love her color anyway no matter what it looks like I just think its weird how they change so much! Im going to post some pics of when she was younger and now tell me what you think.
This is a picture of her the day I picked her out and the other is about a week later
This is her this week. She looks darker and she is the only one out of her litter that isnt brindle. I think she is turning darker and more golden color. Look at her face she has the sweetest face I just fall in love with her again every time I look at these pics! 2 more weeks!
I think it is probably the lighting in the photos, outside the color will be more prominent than inside with flash?
Maybe! When I picked her out she was a fawn color I saw that myself but outside she looks red I guess you never know by pictures it will take me seeing her in person but either way she is cute! I am told she is second to the smallest in the litter she also is the mellowest and she is very loving they call her the attention hog because she will push the other pups out of the way so she can be held she acts like a little princess already we may be in trouble! lol
I'm a new Bulldog owner BUT I've had 2Boxers (amd started a Boxer trend w/the family lol-hey, awesome is contagious) &they never changed coat colors

I agree with Lisa. The lighting in pics makes all the difference. Even the time of day inside or out can Change color dramatically.
