For a long time I was in doubt if there were any puppies at all. 5 days prior to the expected birth mother "Jessie" was looking like this:
And Friday 1 April was this black boy born, a singleton.
At first I was tempted to call him Istanbul...
...but as his father is NL CH Spotnik´s Arctic Adam, he looked for a better name in the newspaper,
and found "Icebear" just after he was born.
And here is mother INT NORD N DK S CH DKV-10 Spotnik´s Excuse For Ecstacy with her baby.
I bought the puppy a "littermate", a white bear.
The first week she took her maternal duties so seriously that he became pink all over by continues licking, so I had to "save" him from his mother in between.
I hope daddy Adam will be proud of his son.
