I have a question I am hoping someone can answer.

I have 2 males and 1 female purebred Beagles. Both of my males have the dark brown eyes and my female has the lighter brown eyes. I have seen many more Beagles recently that this is the case as well and have even noticed it in quite a few pictures here on BW. Is it just something (their genes) that some Beagles have lighter eyes or is it usually the females with the light eyes and the males with the dark eyes?

Just curious if anyone knows.

Don't know if there is a science behind it... but I can partially support your theory: Chloe has green eyes, and her pal Abby (tri-color) has dark brown eyes...

My Maggie has exceptionally dark eyes so I would have to go with the genetic theory. You can see her eyes in my avatar but this pic shows them better:

It has nothing to do with whether they are male or female, it's down to genetics just like it is with us. Rosa's eyes are very very dark but Sherry's are a little lighter.
