Jocab described what happened to me, too. I was a nice looking little kid with fair hair and blue eyes. Then, I grew into a plain looking adult, my hair turned dark brown and my eyes went pale. Now I'm an ugly old man, without much hair and what's left is grey. I don't know what colour my eyes are now -- they're so dim I can hardly see them. Why should puppies be different? But they're great to have, aren't they!
