Sally & Rossy's April 2007 Litter:

Portraits of the Pups at 6 weeks old (June 5th)

Page 5

This is a special time when all of the pups are given their puppy names. They will retain them, but their new owners will add their own choice in names to their Official Coton de Tulear Club of America registered names. Our tradition has always been to pick a theme for the names within a litter. This litter's theme is "National Parks and Reserves of Madagascar." These parks are a critical last refuge of the extremely important plants and wildlife of our Coton's native land.

Sally's female Tri-color pup Number One, below, is now known to us as "Zombitse of Alika Cotons," better known as "BITSE" (pronounced "Beat-SEE). The Zombitse Reserve is a famous bird watching area just outside of Tulear in south western Madagascar. It is a dry. arid forest. While I stayed near there in 1973 I saw one of my first Cotons: a tall, white very playful character much like Bitse's mom Sally!


Sally's sweet Tri-color female Number 2 has been named in honor of the Andohahela Reserve, a tropical rain forest the coats the mountains of southeastern Madagascar. It contains endangered plants as well as tiny Mouse and Dwarf lemurs, which I studied in 1974. So we proudly present below Andohahela of Alika Cotons -- known to us as happy little "HELA."
