Exciting new colors in the generations to come

Well I went to the breeder who I got my Argente Golden Male from and he had not only another Argente but he also had a REW from the same parents as mine. It's so exciting because the only way to get a REW is with recessive gg and so that means there is a possibility that my Argente has the same recessive traits and if my Nutmeg has it they will get some pretty exciting colors if not i will probably have to choose a healthy pup of theirs at random to breed with a gg and hope to get what I want if not I know that THOSE pups will definately be carrying a recessive g gene and then if I breed one of them with a gg I can finally get the colors I want Gray Agoutis and Slates and colors that are unavailable with the genes I have at present. From what I know i have A,a,C,cb,E,e,D,G,P,p,and both spotted and un spotted just a couple more genes and I will have most of the colors I have been looking for. It took alot of will power for me to walk out of there without that little pup (he was about 7 weeks not so little anymore) would have been great to breed with my spotted black for some nice spots with colors. We'll we will see what the future brings
