to Carolina Coton's Dogs
Our dogs are health tested yearly to ensure they do not pass
any unwanted characteristics to their offspring. Puppies are either registered
with the Coton breed club, USACTC, the UKC, or the AKC's
FSS registry for rare breed dogs. (To see our dogs' photos on
the AKC's site click
here.) Buyers will be given litter
registration papers for one of these organizations after I receive
a spay or neuter certificate from your vet. After registration,
your puppy's certified pedigree will be mailed to you from them.
I will not post our dogs' pedigrees online, but they are available
for review upon request. For referral letters, click
is Nice of Tara, NA, NAJ, OA, OAJ, AXJ aka Bogey
Bogey's sire is Ch. Preferred Stock of Tara, IABAC National
and International, Mexican, World Junior, and American Junior
Champion, and 1999 World Champion. His dam is Ch. Sweet N Low
of Tara, CH. ARBA, USACTC, IABAC and SKC National and International.
A best in show winner.
The best adjective to describe Bogey is "handsome." He
is truly a good-looking Coton. Bo likes to stick close to me
and is my constant shadow. He is very vocal often making throaty
noises to express his contentment. Bo loves his family and frequently
waits at the door when someone is away.
Tres Jolie Bébé,
NA, NAJ, OA, OAJ, AX, AKJ, NJC aka Bébé
Bèbè's sire is RokandRoll of Woodland
Cottage. He is a 28-time champion, including international and
world champion. Her dam is Sprightly Fellows Hip Hip Hurray,
the daughter of multi-world champion Rifelin Julius Caesar.
You can tell right away when looking at Bèbè that
she is a girl. She has huge round black eyes and a lustrous coat.
But, don't let her fool you, she's not a girly-girl. Bèbè is
very athletic and very competitive. She excels in agility and
is muscular in build. Bèbè's loves to give face-covering
Gold Rush Kate aka Katey
Katey's sire is USACTC ARBA Ch. Bar-Ken's Happy Go Lucky who
quite possibly holds more titles in the U.S. in agility, obedience,
and conformation than any other Coton. Her dam is IABCA Ch. Rock-A-Bye's
Katey is cuddly, and loves to snuggle in a warm lap. Any lap
will do as she does not know a stranger. She is always a hit
with our guests, and is frequently whisked away by visitors to
our house as she loves to snuggle. She tends to have a precocious
nature though, and if something is amiss in the house, it's usually
Katey at the bottom of it. See the agility page for more exciting
news about Kate.
Rayce of Carolina
Rayce is our first tri-colored Coton. He was
almost solid black and white at birth, but
by about nine-months of age his tri-coloring faded to nearly solid
from the tips of his ears. Rayce's lineage comes from the kennels of
Cotonbrie and Lake Jem. He is truly a wonderful dog,
and I have been told numerous times that
he would do phenomenally well showing in conformation. But alas,
in agility and I
do not wish to compete in two venues.
Rayce is my "lover boy," and is very affectionate. He is
also the best-behaved dog of our gang, and seldom if ever gets in to
trouble, if he does falter, he's always quick to give an apologetic
Crystal Ice aka Charlotte
Not to worry she's not always this sandy! Charlotte is typically
our "pretty girl," but was caught on film being a typical
Coton, enjoying the outdoors. She also adores playing with
Jesse, a Great Pyrenees, and we frequently find her with either
her whole head in his mouth, or she is hanging off of his beard.
Thank goodness Jesse loves her too, else she would be a bite-sized
Charlotte retired from breeding in 2009.
Charlotte's sire is Multi champion Cotonbrie Tarzan, who
is an Italian, French, and Brazilian champion in addition to
a world and national champ. Her mother is Sprightly
Fellows Hip Hip Hurray, making Charlotte a half sister to our
Lola Run of Tara
Lola is our college girl who "attended" Virginia
Tech with our daughter Brienne who graduated this year. Lola
enjoyed her college career and was frequently found donning
Tech apparel and hiking the mountains of Virginia, and then
napping on her custom-made Hokie bed. Lola even has her own
Facebook fan club of Hokie acquaintances. Lola is back at
home with us on the farm while "Mom" is working overseas
Lola's dam is CH. Honeysuckle Mist of TARA, CH. IABAC National
sire is Ch. Tara's Lancelot Du Lac of Woodland Cottage also
IABAC National and International Champion.
Agatha Cristie, aka Sophie
Sophie loves to roam around our farm, dig in
meander through our acreage, and she is thoroughly
a "tom-girl" but also loves to snuggle. Sophie bred
with our Bogey in 2008 and delivered a litter
the most beautiful
tri-colored pups that we have ever seen. We were
surprised by this as Sophie is all white herself
but for the tip of one ear, and the father is an
all-white male. Soph is due to deliver a litter in
July fathered by our tri-male and we expect a lot
of color in these pups.
Sophie's father is Bar-ken's Cowboy Tango who is
an Italian champion. Her mother is Cotonbrie Otis
who is now retired.
Be in Love with Me, aka Pippa
Pippa is a beautiful tri-colored Coton who lives
with our daughter, Kendra, and her family. Pippa can best be described
as a "good girl," who is eager to please and always minds
her manners. Pippa has a beautiful and thick coat, and is very
small in size. She is affectionate and playful and totally devoted
her little master, our grand daughter, Ella.
Pippa's pedigree is outstanding, her sire is Multi.
Ch. Cotonbrie Vercingetorige. Among his numerous titles, he has
Best of breed 2008 at the World Dog Show, and Best in Show and
Breed at the 2007 Crufts show in England. Pippa's mother, Wonderful,
is also a Vice Jr. World Champion.
Gang Ready for a Ride!
From left to right in the photo is Bèbè, Katey,
our puppy Charlotte, and Bogey. Jesse is our Great Pyrenees pictured
in the center. He's still a puppy! Pyrs. are bred to guard herds
of animals, and it is his his job to protect his little Coton "flock." Click

We own three outdoor cats, Frankie who is fourteen, and
our new additions from Solutions for Animals, Jada and Chevy.
The cats get along very well with the dogs. We lost a 15-year-old
cat this year, Domino, who will be forever missed.
