Tater Tot had 3 little Baby Tots




After a long night, Taylor had 3 beautiful puppies...First a boy, and then 2 girls followed.  One girl has a lot of color, and one girl is all white.  Taters is loving her little babies up and keeping them clean and fed.  She's an awesome little Mom!  Cappuccino did a great job..this is his first litter.  Both Taylor and Cappuccino have awesome personalities and their pups will be awesome too!

Smarty Pants

Smarty pants aka: Nevaeh......Well today, Taylor had been put inside her crate to have her lunch, (she gets an extra meal because she's pregnant),...Nevaeh who is very food oriented thought she'd just open up the crate and eat Taylor's leftovers.  She just lifted up the handle with her mouth and very carefully slid it over and ever so gently put the handle back down again, gave it a little tug, and BINGO.... the door opened...I closed it quickly and grabbed my video camera in hopes she would do it again, but she didn't.  
I'll definitely get it on film the next time.

It's the 29th and the puppies will be here any day.  I don't think today, but possibly tomorrow.

More Snow in CT!


It's snowing here again at Renaissance Cotons.  The Cotons are LOVING it, but the humans are getting pretty sick of it.  In this photo, Nevaeh was called and called to come inside and as you can see, she wasn't listening.

Taylor's temp is dropping so the pups should be here soon.  Stay tuned.

Grandma's Nesting




Taylor will be having her puppies in a few days and Grandma Lynn is nesting.
I like to use these double decker Rover pens for the whelping and then I have one all made up for Mama and babies to go into afterwards.  The little stuffed dogs inside are filled with buckwheat and 15 seconds in the microwave will give the puppies some added warmth.  They love to crawl up on these.

Stay tuned for the arrival of Taylor's puppies.

Nevaeh update:  Nevaeh is doing much better after her reaction to her DHPP shot.  It was a long weekend, but she's perfect now and back to her old self. :)

The Trials and Tribulations of being a breeder.

Today, Chyna, Nevaeh and Cappuccino went to the Vet for vaccines.  Chyna and Nevaeh had their DHPP booster and Cappuccino had his rabies vac.  All seemed OK until I noticed Nevaeh shaking her head like mad, some hours later....I picked her up to bring her downstairs to my grooming area to check her ears, and to my horror, her ears were bright red, she had a good inch of bright red on the skin surrounding her eyes, and her muzzle was red.  So I grabbed her and headed off to doggy emergency for a shot of Benadryl, STAT
She's fine now...she's supposed to be sleepy...NOT!!  She's running around happy and full of life..thank God..so all of you current and future doggy owners, always watch your pooch after being vaccinated...if you ever see any redness, itching, swelling or difficulty breathing, time is of the essence, get your pup to a Vet immediately.  It's always a good idea to keep Benadryl 25mg tablets, (Diphenhydramine) on hand.  You can give 12.5mg to a Coton en route to the ER.   Also, if your pet does have a reaction to a vaccine, it's important to pre-medicate with Benadryl before administering the vac again in the future. Talk to your Vet!
I'm now going to have some snuggle time with my Cotons and thank my lucky stars that my sweet little Nevaeh is OK.
I think a few years were taken off of my life tonight...

Coton de Tulear puppies cooking in Mama's belly!


Taylor had her xray today and it looks like 3 little tater tots are on the way.
Taters is due on the 31st and we are getting our double decker rover pens put together this weekend....one for whelping, and another waiting on standby all nice and clean and plushy...Auntie Pam gave us a beautiful purple bumper and it's soooo soft.
I took a pic of the xray....it's not the best quality...here it is!!  You can count the spines and the heads :)  Have fun!!

Inauguration Day at Renaissance Coton de Tulear


It's inauguration day today....the dogs don't seem to really give a hoot...hmmm, I wonder why?  Could it be that it's more fun playing in the snow?  I'm going to bet that's it!
Is it nap time yet?  I think so.
Happy Jan 20th!

Football...UGH


So what is Renaissance Coton de Tulear up to today?
Well a picture says 1000 words...I hate football...I'm more of a baseball kinda gal :)
It was snowing here early this morning and the gang had a ball eating about 3 lbs of it.
Dad has been watching football and Mom has been hanging out with the gang watching a movie.
Taylor had a poop butt and now she's happy that it was only a butt wash and not a full blown bath.  She'll be getting her pre-puppy bath soon, along with a belly shave. Taylor is really showing and is constantly begging and crying for some real food.  Yesterday she had homemade chicken soup..she loved it!! She was happy with the tomatoes off of my tuna sandwich today.
She'll be going for an xray the beginning of next week.  Stay tuned....Renaissance Cotons signing off...Have a great week!

I have only one word to say!

Brrrrrrrr  Is that a word?  You know it's cold when your dogs freeze in place and you have to go outside in your slippers to rescue them.  You know it's cold when you go out to rescue them and your slippers freeze to the ground.  You know it's cold when the weather forecast says it's going to get even colder by the end of the week...Can you say sub zero?  You know it's cold when you wish that you and your dogs could stay in your jammies until next week.  Hmmm... I think that's doable :)

Poor Analiesa....she went outside today and when I looked out the door she was standing there with her front paw up in the air with a huge chunk of ice hanging from it..another rescue situation.  Cappuccino was jumping around on 3 legs and had to be rescued too..he had some ice stuck to his back foot.  The only way to get them to come inside is to crinkle some paper... they think it's a treat..hehe..they think eating ice is the best thing....well...........since ice cream.

Today our friendly UPS man came with 4 very big boxes...One big box was 400 pee pads. Stocking up for the upcoming pups.  Plus, shipping was half price. Woo Hoo!!  Hopefully, they'll last for at least 2 years!   All the Cotons are now playing with some new toys ...Ahhhh peace at last :)

Renaissance Coton de Tulear.... signing off until next time.....It's time to enjoy a warm fire and a little R&R ....YAY!   Wishing everyone the warm fuzzies.

The Girls are getting wider!

I have a very good feeling that the girls are both  pregnant...They are getting wider for sure..Now I just have to limit them from running around like maniacs with the pack.  uh huh :)  "Hey Mom, don't you know, we are Cotons de Tulear."  "We love to run around"
More snow tomorrow..6 inches or so...fun fun fun..I'm getting out all the brushes and combs and towels for a very long day of fun in the snow.
