We have just had our first litter of puppies from our female, Black Spot's Silver Sage and our male, Duke of Black Spot. Sage's father is CH Big Bears Mighty Sampson, and we are expecting some very nice things to come from this litter of puppies. Darby is a big beautiful girl, and one of the first to come over to us from this litter. She has a great personality. Since we have never had a litter from Sage and Duke before, we are not sure what we are going to wind up with for color. Many have expressed a desire for a puppy that is smokey grey in color or like her mother. Darby is probably the one most likely to exhibit that type of coloring. She is dark now, but when you rub her fur in the opposite direction, there is silver underneath. I would keep this one myself if I could!
