Notes:  There appears to be a correlation between coat color and depth of eye color.  The darker the green of the eyes, the darker the coat tends to be.  "Color" is more than just coat color--it includes clarity, tipping, contrast, nose leather color and paw pad color so while it is often worth more points than eye color alone, those points need to be divided amongst the various elements and it should be noted that the majority of the standards call out eye color specifically to ensure adequate focus on this key element of the breed.
