I just saw a picture of a black puppy with blue eyes. I'm sure this is a dumb question but, do they stay blue? I know that some babies are born with blue eyes but they change by six months or so. Is it the same way with puppies?
Nope they won't stay blue. Mo, my chocolate had the bluest eyes when he was a pup and it was so wild looking! They are as gold as gold can be now ;D

The Love of My Life
Rest in peace my Sweet Chocolate
I Love You and Miss You so much
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
Duke's eyes were very blue when he was a pup. They changed to a light hazel about 3 or 4 months.

Abby's, too. Her eyes were still blue when we brought her home at 7 weeks. They soon changed to the gorgeous brown they are now.

thanks for the responses. I Thought that was probably what happens.
Just a bit more information - chocolates and Dudley yellows (yellows with chocolate/liver pigment) can have blue or green eyes as puppies which change to light brown/amber color when they mature. All of the dogs here that said they had blue eyes as pups fall into that category. Blue eyes on a black however is not common and I have never heard of such a thing. Was the photo of a chocolate that appeared black?
Angus' eyes stayed blue so long I thought they were going to stay that way! I wondered if he was part Husky or something
We got him very young, only about five or six weeks, from the shelter. I think he was close to three months before they changed, if I remember right. Now they are a lovely caramel color.

WigWag, these puppies were definately black. Thanks for all the info.
Murphys were a bluish/green for the longest time. In the right light, they will still look green. They are a yellowish color now.
Of course, Murphy is a dudley! ;D
