Thank you! I actually call him Mr. Handsome sometimes =]. Sox has been referred to as a choclate tri-color by some and a chocolate dilute or lilac beagle by our Vet. He was a genetic anomoly. Both of his parents were normal tri-colors, as well as the other pups in the litter he came from. But apparently, both his parents had the recessive gene and he ended up several shades of brown, with white and ticking on his legs and chest, a liver colored nose, and blue eyes as a puppy that turned yellow with blue rings around the pupil as an adult.I can see them.. how HANDSOME!! what kind of beagle is he? (mine is tri- color) I have never seen a beagle like that before!
