My baby crossed the bridge

by Sharon Saunders

My 10 year old had her teeth cleaned in August 2023. She started biting. Had her whole body and teeth Xrayed. Was told she had arthritis. She had no problems before dental visit. Changed vets. Gave her pain and anxiety meds. Went to groomer of 4 years. Had a seizure. Took to vets. Put on different meds. Had 3 seizures. Went blind and deaf. Hearing and sight came back within couple of weeks but had dementia. Peed all over the everything. Could not pet or hold her. Paced in circles. Finally I had her put down end of March.

I am so grieving her. She was the best dog ever. I don’t understand what went wrong here. I think the first vet that did the dental work dropped her when she was sedated and injured her back. I cannot quit crying. I bought her in MI and I live in CA now. I am not ready for another dog yet but I have checked out different sites and cotons are hard to find. She was half poodle as well so she did not shed. I am so lost without her. I sit by her grave daily and talk to her. I have never cried so much in my life. I so loved my little Jasmine.

Letting Go is Hard!
by: Caron

I adopted a 7yo retired Coton from a breeder in Phoenix AZ a month ago. I got her with the anticipation that I was going to have put an elderly dog down (he could no longer eat). Bella definitely helped to soften the blow, but not a day goes by that I don’t think of Tucker, my little buddy. I had also lost a toy poodle (Tucker’s side kick) this past December. Although I have come to love Bella, she has the best disposition of any dog I have ever owned, the pain of losing the others never seems to go away.

Coton location NEW
by: Gigi

I am so sorry about your sweet baby. I cannot imagine how hard this-something I will face someday.

If you are interested, there is a wonderful breeder in Amador Calif. Her mommas and daddy and all of her puppies are so well loved and socialized. My girl Winnie came from her "Snowy River Cotons" 3/2020 and she is the best girl. When you are ready, tell her "Snowy River’s Winona Elara" momma sent you.

Best wishes and wonderful memories of your sweet Angel.
