    I agree too. Nice little silkies. Did anyone tell you that you have to provide dark glasses and a white cane for them?[​IMG]

    The female will have a nice round pom-pom for her head while the mail has "rock star" spikey look. [​IMG] I call one of my roos...Rod Stewart and the female Maddona. My other two do not have rock star names. [​IMG]

    I am sure the white ones you are right on. I dont know about the blue one. I cant figure it out. Can you get a body shot side view of the blue one standing?

    eta That blue one is very pretty! So are the white ones too. [​IMG]

    The females are more roundish and the males more (tubular?). They stand up more at a bit of an angle. The poofy head sure looks like a female though. The females have roundish poof tails and the males might have a bit of an extension on their tails. (?)
