Thanks for starting an interesting thread. I enjoy reading everyone's opinions. Personally, I like the more saturated colors over the dilute and will breed towards that. However, I don't have a problem with breeders who are a bit adventuresome with their colors as long as they do appropriate health testing. I think conformation, health and temperament are primary, with coat and color secondary. But when people call they sure seem to focus on what color the pups are going to be!
