♥Burt has a new baby sister♥

Burt the Coton de Tulear has a new baby sister
What an incredibly beautiful photo that we just had to share.
The pure innocence of it all...and the bond that Burt has already made with this beautiful baby girl, named Phoebe. The Coton de Tulear is such an amazing little dog.
Here is what Burt's Mom and Dad have to say:
Hello Lynn,
I wanted to send you an update on Burt! He's such a lovely family dog, we could not have asked for a better dog. We get complements from everyone on how well behaved he is around our new baby!
We took a class called Barks & Babies through Isis Maternity (a chain around the Boston area). I would highly recommend that to anyone you know who is up in the area looking into how to integrate a baby into the dog's family. It was short and helpful, with good hints on how to prepare them for screaming, crying, hair pulling, routine changes, etc.
Burt has been fantastic with Phoebe. He loves her very much, and is super attentive to her noises. One day I was throwing a load of laundry in the wash, and could not hear her start to cry over the running water. He came running in to alert me, barking and running back to her pack n play barking. He tries to help out with baths, hanging over the side of the tub extremely interested in the process. He requires an after-bath inspection of her to make sure she's ok (since most baths include crying).
He also LOVES pregnant women! He would sit on my belly with his front paws on my legs and his bum on my belly. He nows checks everyone who visits with a belly to see if there is a baby in theirs!
Anyways, cheers to you for breeding such wonderful dogs. We could not have asked for a better addition to our growing family.
Take care,
Lauren and Stu

♥ NIKO GOES ON A PHOTO SHOOT FOR FETCHDOG ♥

The Very Beautiful and Stunning Renaissance Niko owned and loved by Theresa Fox of Maine.

Fetchdog was co-founded by Glenn Close.  Glenn knows all about the Coton de Tulear, as she too, is a Coton owner.  You can visit her blog and from there you can go to the online Fetchdog Catalog.


Here's what Niko's Mom Theresa had to say about Niko's photo shoot.
Niko went on a location in Cape Elizabeth, Maine
The FetchDog catalog will be in homes around Oct 4 and also available on line by then if not before. 
Niko is featured in a green trundle (sack).  I haven't seen the photo so I'm not sure how it will look.
He will get more exposure in future catalogs since he was so well behaved during his first photo shoot.  Or at least that is what the art director told me!
He did great at the photo shoot.  Lots of lights, cameras, people!  Art director, photo shoot director, cameramen, men that focused on the lighting, marketing manager, dog manager, dog trainer, product manager and on and on.  There must have been 20 people working this shoot. They said Niko was wonderful.  They put him in a dog bed "sack" and he stayed right in it.  They said they were discussing the photos, angles, etc and he just sat there and waited!  What a good boy!  They have already asked that he come back for their next catalog shoot.  He got a gift certificate too!
I believe the catalog gets published late September but I will let you know when I get the final date. Oh yeah, they asked me if I would bring him down to Glenn Close's summer house.  She loves cotons and I guess she wants to meet Niko.  I think I can manage that~!  :)

Such a beautiful boy.  A big thank you to Theresa for giving Niko such a great home and for working so hard with him on his training.  At the very least, we can see Niko becoming a Canine Good Citizen just like his Daddy, Koda.
