Mombaccus Icelandic Sheepdogs in New York state had a litter of four puppies, two boys and two girls, on January 19, 2013.
It looks like three pups will look similar to mom and one will look like dad.
The parents are Galdur, a beautiful tricolor male, above as a puppy and as an adult staring at his own reflection, Narcissus-like, in a pond? (Who could blame him?)

Brynja (above), a lovely female, is staying with the pups and taking very good care of them.

The health test results for mom and dad are on the Mombaccus website. To see the pups' pedigree, more photos of them, and Brynja & Galdur click here: -

I just received some photos of Soffia Arya Grace taken last summer. This time of year it's so nice to be reminded of summer temperatures, isn't it? She's a tricolor puppy from last April's litter between Laki and Totty. Arya loves to go camping, hiking, and swimming with her mom and dad - Linda and Mike. The pups from this litter seem to have an affinity for water and the outdoors. That's fantastic!

Reuben Dourte of Windward Graffix designed this ad (below) for Dog News using a great photograph of Lee taken by Kerrin Winter-Churchill.

Vinlands Leifur is owned by Jennifer Sanders and handled by Guy H. Fisher!

Debbie Ostrander of Asgards Icelandic Sheepdogs here in Michigan recently had a litter of four puppies (in order above - I think): one chocolate tricolor (chocolate, tan, and white) male named Kain, one black, and white male named Kaffteinn, one chocolate and white female named Kula, and one tricolor (black, tan, and white) female named Korpa. Four puppies and no two alike.
                                   Kaffteinn - black and white male

It looks like some will have shorter fur and others longer fur. Maybe the boys will both have longer fur - although it's a bit too early to tell for sure.
                                 Kain - chocolate tricolor (chocolate, tan and white) male

                                 Korpa - tricolor (black, tan and white) female)

 It looks like the two girls will have shorter fur but only time will tell for sure.
                                      Kula - chocolate and white female

There are more photos and some information about the parents on Debbie's website.

Sunna earned her first point at Western Reserve Kennel Club's show and she's not even a year old yet! She's amazing.
