Spring Celebrations

Happy Spring (at least here in the US) - This is going to be a short newsletter because I'm traveling right now, but I wanted to make sure to acknowledge all the Cotons with milestones to celebrate. I'll be away from Luc for 3 weeks on this trip, which is the longest we've ever been separated. I've got a pet sitter staying at my house who I trust completely and a dog walker as well, so I know he's in great hands. BUT, I miss my sweet boy!!

Now let's celebrate some Cotons...

Special Shout outs

  • Happy belated birthday to Bailey from Naples, Florida who celebrated birthday number 5 on January 7th.

  • Zorro from Orange County, CA turned 11 on Feb. 13. His mom, Lynda, says he's sweet, loving, and fun.

  • Jon-Luc from Louisville, TN celebrated on March 2nd. His mom, Denise, says "Jon-Luc is such a special boy, he came into my life when I lost my mother, and has been a blessing to help me through that loss. He loves to play ball and give kisses. He will be 4 this year and I hope I have many more birthdays with him."

  • Casper is a star in the 2019 ACC calendar. Check out Mr. September.

  • Alfie from Lansing, MI also turned 4 on March 15th. His dad, Richard, says "Alfie is a great companion, knows when you don't feel well, snuggles up to you to help comfort you. Good watch dog."

  • Theo from Carmel, IN was 2 on April 3rd. His mom, Ansley, says "Theo is a great little Coton who is bringing our family so much joy!! He has black markings which we adore."

  • Charleston Michel will be a year old on April 10th. His mom, Linda, sent this: "My name is Charleston Michel and my family calls me Charlie! I was the runt of my litter. My brother is over twice my size! At 5 months old I weigh 3.3 pounds. But that doesn't stop me from being rambunctious, funny, bright, adorable, charming and a little bit ornery! I can be very fierce and growl and bark when I see another little white dog outside of our door (aka reflection)! I love going to visit my grandpa at his assisted living so the residents can make a fuss over me! I love to sniff and sniff and sniff and sniff! I love to give kisses (aka licks). I also love to chew and chew and chew and chew. If I see socks, I'll grab them and run FAST!"

  • T-Rex from Oregon is turning one on April 17th. His mom, Sally, is celebrating that this adorable Coton has come to live with her.

  • And finally, we celebrate a life well lived and bid a sad goodbye to J.R. who recently passed. I hope that all the years of wonderful memories will soon overshadow the sadness for your family. Sending prayers and love.
