Just thought we’d let you know that Stanley (Happy) has settled in really well to his new home. We had him checked out by our own vets Who gave him a clean bill of health and we are booked in for more injections next week.
He is very happy, loves his toys and enjoys playing with Harry and Madison. We can’t wait to take him out for his first walk. He’s already learnt to sit and is going to the toilet outside regularly.
John, Sam, Harry, Madison and Stanley
Hope all is well. Just an update on Griffins progress so far!
He has settled in so well with us, he is such a lovely little puppy all he wants to do is play and have cuddles. He is very easily pleased.
On the first car journey home he didn’t make any fuss atal, the first night he found hard and got quite upset but he has since settled in to his new bedroom routine and goes through the night now without a peep.
His toilet training is also coming on well, he is such a clever little dog and has already learnt the ‘sit and stay’ command.
I took him for his checkup with our vet and all is well, he loved the attention that he got from everyone there! the only thing was that the brand for the jabs they use at my vet wasn’t compatible with the brand that your vet had used so he had to start his jabs again so 2 weeks until walkies, but we have been taking him for carry outings and he loves it, he is so friendly with everyone he meets.
Iv attached a few pictures and will send more soon

“Thank you to Jean at CotonRags for going above and beyond to help us adopt Molly and bring her to Bermuda. Molly had already begun her potty training before she arrived and consequently has caught on very quickly! The puppies are raised in a home environment and Jean makes every effort to begin their socialization so they are ready for their new family. CotonRags is a great choice if you are looking for a responsible breeder of these amazing coloured Cotons!”
Molly had her first visit to the beach this weekend so I will send you a photo when I manage to get them onto my computer. She wasn’t overly convinced by the water… but loved the seaweed!
………She’s everything we expected and more, and my parents are absolutely loving having her during the day time. I think she’s found her soulmate in my dad! (when I go to see her at lunch time they are always getting up to something).
I took her to the shop where I work this morning and she met Lobo (another Coton). She was a bit scared at first, but then we took them for a walk together and when we got back to the store we let them off their leashes on the second floor and they went beserk running around and playing! ……….
Master and Hound … a later photo of Petunia/Chillie in her forever home.
Lovely to meet you too and thanks so much for our wonderful puppy.
She is currently sleeping on my knee after a walk in the park!
We had a bit of an interesting trip home – car sick halfway, but we stopped at a park and had some air and she made it the rest of the way. Slept like a baby in her crate – no crying either first night or last night, and now seems completely settled. She is very good at peeing and pooing outside, has learnt to sit on demand and walks beautifully to heel on the lead…we have even been off the lead and she comes back reliably now (we had to do some rewarding with treats on that one) or circles around me as I walk. Cats are ignoring her and everyone is happy in the same room.
We are having a lovely time – can’t tell you what a joy she is!
Will send you some photos – they aren’t in this computer but will send them on later tonight. Very best wishes and thanks for breeding such a lovely well balanced puppy,
Alice, Dave and Chillie x x x
How lovely to hear from you and ….. of course you have permission to publish my emails and photos too, you can even give my details for recommendations about what I think about the breed!!!! We have been having the most wonderful time – I can’t actually begin to tell you about the joy that Chillie has brought not just to us, but the Hospice patients and so very many other people on our travels and walks…she brings a smile to so many faces.
We have attached some photos of Eliza playing in the garden. She loves the football and playing in the garden. She isn’t so keen when it rains!! On the journey home Eliza travelled well. She has settled really well and loves Kyle, he lies by her bed and we have attached a picture of them both together. Eliza being one chilled puppy has helped Kyle already to start to rebuild his confidence.
We will keep in touch and update you with photos.
We just wanted to update you on Emerson. We have decided to change his name to Pomme, as it is French and also like a pom-pom!
The journey in the car went very well – he wasn’t sick and didn’t go to the toilet. He has been settling in all afternoon and gets on well with Sunny, our labrador, who is very gentle with him.
Here are some photos that we just took of him.
All the best,
Ida, Nigel, Alice and Isabel

Just to let you know that Ollie has been as good as gold. He was fine in the car. He’s had his 2 meals, dozed and played. He’s very calm and friendly. He’s used the pads twice and no accidents on my mum ‘s carpet. He went to sleep in his crate without a murmur when he was all played out. He has stolen all our hearts and he’s just gorgeous.
I hope all of you are not missing him too much,
Please use the photos if you like. Ollie is wonderful and has such a personality. He gets on with all the other dogs he meets and loves to play chase. He is the most perfect dog in the world! I have given your name to my friend, Lisa, and she may be getting in touch re having a puppy.
Ollie is doing brilliantly. He is as happy as ever. I forgot to say that he was neutered a few months ago. I hope you are all well.

JayJay (Arthur) is settling in really well and quickly gaining lots of confidence. Favourite pastimes include licking people’s feet, lying across feet to doze and chasing his ball on a rope to pounce on it, have a good tussle and then bring it to you (presumably “dead”). I did try teaching him to sit on command, but now he sits and waits for his treat whenever he knows someone has them.
Attached are some photos taken this morning. Including one where he is expecting a treat because he is outside and he is sitting – even though he has not done a wee and nobody told him to sit! Smile
Hope all is well with you.
Beau (Alfred) is doing very well indeed. He’s such a pleasure to have and everyone loves him!!
He’s really healthy n happy and loves doing tricks!
We have just had him neutered so wondered if you gave us his pedigree document?
I can’t remember when we were last in touch – it seems an age ago, during which time Oscar has grown into a wonderful intelligent, playful and affectionate little dog. He is also obedient most of the time EXCEPT when off the lead (now very rarely) and focused on other dogs, rather then ourselves. Whenever we think it’s time to test his recall again in the hope it has improved, he always fails. Even the temptation of his favourite home- made liver cake carries no sway compared to the freedom to do whatever he chooses in that moment, which is usually to run around (and away) with other dogs. Any tips would be much appreciated. We haven’t discounted a dog behaviourist in the long run as we do want him to enjoy free interaction but with some ground rules. He has 3 acres to run around in here at home which he doesn’t utilise fully because he would prefer to roll around with another dog rather than chase a ball.
We’re hoping that his constant scent marking (outdoors), and need to be around other dogs will subside a little when he has been neutered. What do you think, is it going to make much of a difference ? Otherwise, he is totally adorable and I have to remind myself he is a dog, and not to keep kissing and cuddling him, which he laps up!
With regard to the dreaded operation, Stuart and I have been swatting up on views as to the ‘right time’ for castration and we feel we would like to give him as long as possible to allow his growing body to benefit from the testosterone he is producing while intact. Ideally we would like to wait until he is a year old providing his sexual development and scent marking can be kept under control. If not, it would be brought forward.
Would you be happy to go along with this approach Jean? He is such an adorable little boy, we want to give him the best start in what could be a very, very, long life.
I look forward to hearing your views with any tips thrown in for good measure!
I hope you and the gang are all doing well, and how are your puppies Olive and (?)Archibald?
Best wishes, Inge.
PS. At what age do you advise Oscar should go onto adult dog food?
This is Walter with his new older ‘brother’ Barney. Barney was already in this family so and not my breeding.
Good Morning Jean
Hope that this email finds you well?
I have finally remembered to send you this email notifying you of Buddys castration and have attached a copy of the invoice from the Vets.
Buddy is wonderful and brings so much to our family, he’s doing really well and its hard to believe that he’s still only 9 months old. I have also attached a photo of Buddy on his first holiday.

just a short note to let you know that April, as we now call her, is doing so so well. we all absolutely love her, she is a gentle, clever dog and seems to fit in with whatever is happening around her. when her naughty cousins come to play she runs with the pack, yet when a friends older French bulldog visits April is calm and they sit together chewing on a chew and licking each other.
she has been totally toilet trained since we got her and there hasn’t been a single accident with her, she will fetch a ball and play IF she wishes, if not she looks at me as if to say ”you get it you threw it!!” she is happy to be brushed and groomed, and will roll over for me to do her tummy, she has lost most of her colour where her hair has been cut, though she still has a little caramel patch on her back and black trims to her ears, however with her dark eyes and black nose and mouth she is still beautiful and has the longest eyelashes of any living animal I’ve ever seen.
she comes with me to the local old folks home once a week and loves all the attention she gets while being petted, when we go to a pub/café etc.. she behaves and sits under the table, she walks with us on the lead no pulling etc.. she is a pure joy to have around.
the vets LOVE her, they hadn’t seen a coton du tulear before and she has won them over, she gets a yummy treat from them each we go (teeth checks/worming etc..not because she is ill).
today we walked to town and the local undertaker came out to make a fuss of her and then in the town park a couple got out of their car to talk to us about her and we landed up passing on your details and being invited in for a cup of tea!!!!! all down to April. she really is a ‘babe magnet’ as Charles calls her ha ha
I realise that you put all the ground work in while she was puppy with you and we are reaping the benefits.
I believe April was meant to be our dog and I couldn’t have had a better one, thank you xxxxxx Jayne watkins xx
BRANDON/SNOWY & ENOCH/UNO
Just want to say thanks again for letting us have Uno and Snowy. Uno’s trip home was not as quiet as Snowy’s – he sat on Anika’s lap and cried most of the way. Poor baby.
Both got over-excited on seeing each other and there was a lot of sniffing, yelping, yapping, toy-snatching and some growling (from Snowy). We had to give them both a time-out in their crates — and give Snowy some full-on attention as he started acting up.
After the excitement was over, they both calmed down and had a nap. Pic attached.
The silence is golden, and harmony has been restored… till they wake up! Haha!
Thanks again and am sure we’ll be in touch for the last few bits of admin.
I hope this finds you keeping well and that you had a good Christmas and New Year.
I meant to send you this attached photo before Christmas as it did make me smile. It looks as if my white cat Oscar is saying to Bernie…don’t you dare pee up this tree.
Bernie has settled so well into my house I feel as if he has been here for ever. He gets on well with both cats and very often its him that is washing the white cat. He loves that one.
He has now been to Cornwall twice on the train with me to visit my daughter and family. Both times he travelled so well and no toilet accidents despite being on there for almost 5 hours. He loves the beach.
I am finding him easy to keep clean in this weather but those knots do spring up every so often. I have found a wonderful dog groomer and she is just brilliant with him. He was due for a bath when I took this photo so he is not looking his best but he is so beautiful when you see him all brushed and groomed. I get so many comments on him. He is no longer the shy little boy I picked up that day and has turned into a right little charmer with everyone.
I expect you have now finished all your building work and all is back to normal.
I often look on pets at home to see if you had any further puppies. Not that I want another one but I love looking at them.
Best wishes to you and all your fur babies,
Wendy & Bernie
