Let It Snow!

Pippa, at almost five months old, is so thrilled with winter snow. She takes great delight in leaping through drifts of snow.  Her excitement is fun to watch!

Cotons Against Puppy Mills

As a beguiling companion dog, the Coton de Tulear now faces increasing public awareness in North America. Popularization of the breed leads to a clear and present danger of accelerated puppy mill, pet store and broker interest.
Concerned pet owners and Coton de Tulear breeders launched the Cotons Against Puppy Mills website in an effort to safeguard the breed and preserve it's hallmark traits and authenticity. If you are searching for a purebred puppy and wonder how to find a reputable breeder, this site provides worthwhile advice.

Saint Patrick's Day Coton de Tulear Photo-Windy City Coton

On Saturday, the Windy City celebrates Saint Patrick's Day with its largest parade of the year.  The annual ritual is kicked off by dyeing the Chicago River a bright green.  Since the actual tint is orange, legend has it that leprechauns magically transform the river color to kelly green.  Cotons are equally enchanting!

Hearts and Flowers-Coton de Tulear Puppy Photos

The puppies were happily settled in their forever homes the last weekend in January...just before Chicago's 2011 blizzard.  Since Valentine's Day was around the corner, a few sweet 10 1/2 week old photos of Alinea and Mon Ami Gabi  were taken before leaving the nest.
