She looks blue to me. And you said that one of her parents was either cafe au lait or silver beige. So that parent definitely carried the fading gene and likely passed it on to your girl. It is not unusual for a black puppy to take up to 3 years to clear to blue. Many have very slight clearing by the time they are 8 or 9 weeks, but not all.

Here are some pictures of blue momma dogs. The first two are of Sam's first "wife." The last three are his second "wife." Most of the black puppies in these litters later cleared to blue, but you can see the contrast between the color of the blue mommas and the black puppies.

Oh wow, yes, what a contrast ! I can picture Beckie being a similar color as Samís first wife...

The two moms are pretty similar in color, so differences that you see are probably due to the lighting. Here are some more photos from the 2019 litter. This is wife #2 -- her second litter, and Sam's third litter.

Whatever is going on, I love Beckie's salt & pepper look. It's interesting and pretty. It will be interesting to see if she turns to a blue or what. Maurice has some silver too...a slightly discernible phantom actually. I really like that mix.

Here is Beckie today after a face groom. She is still changing color slowly. The last picture is with Merlin, he wanted to be in too.

We went to the parc today, it was sunny and they were both so happy !
