Critique Color Please (pic heavy)

Hello,
My first gsd; newbie with the breed, but fast learner!!! My son picked her out, or she picked us; & she was one of two grey pups, not a blue I think; grey w/black tinged fur. More people asked if she was a Norwegian Elkhound, or mixed, which she is akc. One month later, she was light tan, w/black strip down back. Changes during each blown coat;
Now she is 2 yo 04/08/10, & I believe she is a sable, as when the fur is brushed backwards & the individual hairs are two colors.
The breeder registered her as a blk & silver, but if this was her color, wouldn't the black on her back be black to the roots?
Her father was a sable, & many dogs on his side of pedigree are listed as sable or gr?
I have included a pedigree, as there is a pic of her sire & she looks like him. Lanker's Lacey Lady pedigree information - German shepherd dog
& I have posted pics of her at: 7.5 weeks; 12-14 weeks; 22 months; 16 months; & a 2 year pic, if not close-up enough (first time using borrowed camera) I will post closer pics at 2 years.
Thank you in advance, really curious of her color; & if she is a sable, which I believe, are there types of sable ie, silver sable, ect?
Ok, pics of Lacey! (hope this works, 1st attatchments!)

Yep looks like a sable to me. I'd say maybe a faded sable??? But she still may change and darken up a bit.

Here's a link that you might find helpful. Illustrated Standard of the German Shepherd Dog, COLOR & PIGMENT

Also, many of our members own sable GSDs and could maybe offer more opinions/help.

Thank you Vinnie; I have been studying coat colors for two years, & was still at a loss, except to think sable!!! Hence my post!! lol

I don't know how many searches I did for: Grey gsd puppy, but not much info, except about blue coloring.

I would say she's a patterned sable with faded tan pigment.

She's got some color to her ears and legs, so maybe not light enough to qualify for the silver sable where the tan woud be almost white. Maybe more of a patterned cream sable?

Hey FuryanGoddess!!

Did you think of your sable as a silver, or just light sable?

Lacey at times looks greyish; the undercoat I brush out seems to be light tan.

Did your sable change up until 3 yo?

Also, love Max phrase; one of my fav's!
