Willow is correct. We recently had a discussion about this on another forum we belong to. I don't want to be rude by posting it here, but I can PM the link to the conversation to you if you want.

Basically, the genes that cause PE are on the same chromosome (piece of DNA) that also causes C-locus dilutions, so for a mouse to be c^ch/c^ch p/p takes a lot of work and a lot of generations.

However, you can breed tan to be selectively paler and paler. I don't know, though, that it's easy. I had some "red foxes" who were phenotypically Avy/at b/b p/p, bred toward a consistently lighter belly but none of them ever got to starch-white like you'd want in a fox.
