Where's the "All of the Above" button?!?! You surely can't expect me to pick just one...... I must admit a soft spot for the Black Moulds though.......

I like the White/liver with a little more ticking, but I will have to agree I cant just pick one

I like them all but if I had a choice it would be a white GSP with liver spots because they stand out better when hunting than the darker ones. But I love the solid liver GSP's as well.

I gotta say, OK I have a favorite color. But when we are out hunting, my favorite colored GSP is the one that is on point at any given moment.

Depends on the dog I'd think. I seem to look more at bone structure, size & conditioning, and conformity more than color. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be a hot ticked liver and white. Darker liver color, not the brownish-tanish shade you can get from some.

Right now, though, there is a solid liver and a black and white ticked pair of males that I get to train with and they both look good. Very solid dogs. The black and white ticked male is quite a bit younger, under two years, but just came back in for training after being gone most of the late spring and summer. He grew up fast!

Me bad. :oops: I have to admit I forgot that one. I do have to agree that it is tough to pick just one. I have 9 solid livers, 5 white/liver roan, and 2 white/liver pups right now and they are all good looking. I love my all black male also.

That is what I call Moesgaard - white and liver ticked, liver patches also with the Moesgaard ticked background. It is the color of the dogs originally imported from Denmark.

When I think of Moesgaard I think of our Fritz coloring. More white than liver and patches, a few ticks. Chance and Rip are l/w ticked all over. Guess it`s about the same. I am not a fan of too much white tho...

I'm pretty sure the black and white male, Radar (who, by the way, is was named before being sold to a police officer - funny coincidence), came out of the Cody and Tag breeding. The solid liver dog is Tigger, quite a bit older, who came back home.

I really like the solid liver. I don't know what it is, I bet you could do some sort of personality traits test out of what coloring of GSP you like. Any shrinks on here? Give us a description on what it means when you like a certain coloring of the breed.

Do you guys remember the old Pro Plan adds that had Len Forbush in them? I think that he was with a dog named Katie??? Do you know the dog? She was beautiful, what color scheme was she?

I prefer mostly white because they are easier to see in the tall brown grass. I wouldn't turn any color down if it were a good dog thou.

I saw a photo of "Tell" once and I wouldn't say there was a lot of ticking on him! But if you go back to moesgaard, you gotta be going in the right direction.

My favorite color is White with a bit of liver and a little ticking. Then it's solid liver. White dogs are easy to spot as are solid liver dog's. White get's a bit harder in the snow. But roan dog's blend in to well and become harder to see.

One of my favorite dog's was white and lemon, oop's, wrong breed!

I like the solid Liver's the best. Easier for me to see in cover. That's just me. A good GSP is a good GSP, and I like them all. :D

I really prefer the piebald dogs or dogs that have markings like Holstein cows. My second favorite is a shiny solid liver coat.

I like all of them more so the white/liver or liver/white the best. But truely truely love that dog and finding in out front on a large covey of quail/chuckar and watching them flush all around us in taking flight. All pointing breeds are great when their doing what they love to do with style and grace. :lol: :) :wink:

Mike is right. A good dog is a good dog, no matter what color. They all have their advantages in different types of cover, but I tend to be able to see the white ones easier when they are on a limb, almost out of site. So, that is what I have. White, and white/liver.

I prefer the lighter colored GSP's for the practical reason that they tend to stay cooler when you're trialing/training, etc on HOT days. The darker the dog the quicker they collect the rays of the sun and heat up.
