I have been working on these blacks for a few generations now and I just wanted to share my progress.
I know the type is pretty crappy but I have been working on color only with these guys. I have other lines that I am working for type with so I will cross them at some point. This guy is the only keeper from my latest litter. I would love opinions on his color.

That is a pretty darn good black; the ears are really great, and the toes are good too, especially if you've only been doing this for a few generations.

Thank you Moustress. I have been very picky over choosing the keepers from my litters, I am only keeping the absolute darkest black and chocolate. I have gotten two very dark and pretty chocolate does from these lines to. Yes this is 3rd generation of trying for black.

very awesome... and not an extreme! Amazing!
Thank you Allison, your correct there are no extreme (to my knowledge) in the lines. I know the offspring I have been getting are not cause they are cursed with tan hairs.

The toes seem pink on the front foot in the first picture but in the second picture (opposite foot, I believe) they look colored. :)

The only thing you need to work on, is getting those nails black now! :p
Try some high gloss nail polish, that'll do the trick. :roll:
