While NOT confirmed, we expect our next litter to arrive at the end of August. If you are already on our contact list, you should have received an email. We will be screening for our wait list over the next few weeks. Check back the "J" litter blog for news and updates!
The 5 Cs are thriving in their forever homes, bringing joy daily to their families. We kept Cortez...it was much to difficult to give him up. He is a happy, well-adjusted puppy, still tiny by comparison to his brother and sisters, but every inch as adorable!
The five C's are in their forever homes. Ivy Rose and Macintosh have resumed their pre-litter roles and the house is getting back to normal. Well, almost...we decided to keep Cortez - at least for now. He was the smallest puppy and took his time reaching benchmarks of development but his charm and tenacity have won our hearts. Our human family is chuckling...there were wagers that we would not be able to let go of every puppy...they know us too well - apparently.
Cabot (now Elvis), Carmel (now Aubree), Capri, and Calliope (now Kaycee) are settled in their forever homes, scattered about the country. As I was pulling together the registration paperwork for mCTCA this week, we pondered the photos of each that will be submitted. Each puppy brought such a different perspective to our experience and we do miss them.
Cabot - our unflappable puppy, unconcerned about most everything - except about when dinner was being served
Carmel - our bold puppy, always testing the boundaries and finding new challenges
Capri - our ringleader puppy, stirring up trouble at every opportunity and asserting her position
Calliope - our snuggler puppy, we have fond memories of her cuddled up in our elbow; the first to move to her forever home - an experience we will not forget
We watch Cortez now, thriving with Ivy Rose and Macintosh, and we see influences of each litter mate. He is no longer the questioner...he is confident and cuddly with a sense of adventure that prompts his momma and daddy to find their younger selves. Our sense of loss is softened as we receive updates regularly from their families and we learn about their escapades and how they are loved in each home. A Coton's goal is to bring joy to their people...these puppies are already meeting that goal and more...
Live well and be happy sweet puppies - the 5 C's will forever be in our hearts.
Cabot and Cortez continue to work on leash manners and potty training. Both are advancing well, although Cortez is less anxious to walk long distances compared to Cabot. Good times at the neighborhood dog park with Momma Ivy Rose and Daddy Macintosh. The boys run and wrestle, growling and barking at each other to show their excitement. They follow Macintosh around the park and avoid Ivy Rose, mostly because she is always reprimanding them.
Post the outside park adventure, Cabot and Cortez snooze under Daddy's stressless recliner in the circular base. This is also a "safe" spot when they are running through the house. Neither of the big dogs can get to them here.
Cabot and Cortez are learning to walk on leash. They took to it so well we walked to the dog park in our neighborhood. They enjoyed the new sights and smells and many neighborhood friends stopped to admire them along the way. They are always charming and receive many compliments, which they graciously accept along with the back strokes and belly scratches.
Cabot boldly walks both to the park and back, trotting quickly and confidently behind the big dogs. Cortez gets tired more easily and hitches a ride in my arms on the return trip. Those little legs have to work extra hard to keep up! Our latest video shows them romping and playing with Ivy Rose and Macintosh at the dog park. Enjoy!
The house is quieter today.
Cabot and Cortez are staying a bit longer. Calliope (now Kaycee Calliope) went to her forever home last week. Capri and Carmel departed yesterday. All joining loving families committed to ensuring they have the best life possible.
It has been a tough few days for us.
We pray that our beautiful girls bring the joy to their forever families that they have given us in the short few weeks we were blessed and fortunate enough to care for them.
Our Cozy Harnesses came today. The puppies were not at all certain that was a good thing! Puppies don't like restrictions.
Outside today for the first time, loving the sunshine and new smells. The pictures tell it all.
The puppies sabotage my attempts to take formal photographs.
