Actually Liesje, I would consider Pan a dark sable, not dark enough to be a black sable, but much darker than regular sable. I would consider Gryff a regular sable:
But just goes to show as Christine said, there is no definitive definition of regular, dark, black sable, they are all subjective descriptions.
Also, I've seen websites where the breeders labeled their dogs as dark/black sables, when they just looked like regular sables, albeit with good pigment. I think more people are becoming more aware that there are such a thing as black sables, and want one, and some breeders are trying to cash in by marketing their dogs as black sables, even though to most of us the dogs would not appear to be dark enough to be called a black sable.
