Default Is this a "blue fawn"?

Sorry for terrible cell phone image quality, my SD card decided to fry itself. =S
Is this little girl what would be considered blue fawn? She is basically a beige color, with a light grey sabling down her back. She has a white stripe down her neck, and on the tips of her paws. Her nose is almost a shade of chocolate... it's definitely not black, and definitely not grey.. but more of a greyish chocolate.

I can't adjust the image tint which I'm sure would help, but the jacket she's laying on is supposed to be white.



And no questions allowed yet, I don't want to introduce her until I know 100% what her status is with us.

It's really hard to tell in that photo, sorry. Billy is a blue fawn. Here is some pics of him when I got him at 6 months old. He almost reminded me of a weimaraner in color.

Hmm.. she almost looks paler than him but otherwise seems about the same, just lighter. I'll have to just take some new pictures to find out. Billy's adorable though... i can just see more actual grey sabling in this pup where he seems to be more even all over.

Can someone link (or copy/paste) the info on just where/how a 'blue fawn' occurs in genetics? I know blue is a dilution, but I'm trying to understand the difference between the dilution of black vs. brown/chocolate.

Ruby's sister is a blue fawn. Here is a pic of all 3 girls. Ruby (our girl, a red) is in the middle and her blue fawn sister is on the right. Her other sister (just for reference), on the left, is a red with black sabling. I do not know if this helps.
These pics were when they were 14 weeks old.





This was the blue fawn pup as a baby:

That one definitely looks like her!! Thanks! Even down to the white on the toes lol. And the nose color is dead on.

Ok, so now I know I can actually describe her color properly. I'll have more photos soon once I reformat my card or get a new one.

Edit: Ahah, never thought to post the pic I saved originally lol. So I didn't take this, but this is the first image I'd seen of her.. definitely shows the coloring.

From the new picture which I guess is the old picture I'd say DEFINITELY blue fawn.

She's very similar to Peachy, who is a blue fawn. Peach is a little lighter in the nose and has some more white, but otherwise, very similar.
