Veg to Bowl

Conversation about Veg to Bowl was recently discussed on my Coton de Tulear Facebook Group The feedback was very positive. That resulted in me looking into the product and emailing the company to learn more. 

You can learn more by visiting Dr. Harvey's website or you can watch this video on YouTube that explains how to use the product. I am intrigued and intend to purchase some in the very near future. 

If you live in Canada you can contact their Distributor in Canada Canadian Holistic Pet Care Company 45905 Yale Road Chilliwack B.C. There phone number is 877-477-5077. You can give them a call and ask where stores in your area carry the food. Or you can go onto there web site at to place your order.

Polana Kitasoo Spirit Bear

Kitasoo also know as "Kitti" arrived home from Nova Scotia in April 2009. She comes from one of Canada's finest breeders Marie France Prayal's Polana Kennel. I spent a week in Nova Scotia to take in all of the beauty of that Province and truly enjoyed meeting with Marie France Prayal. Kitasoo has without a doubt the most gentle spirited nature that you can possibly have in a Coton. My husband has taken ownership over her...she is his favorite and I can say she is usually in his lap watching tv at night. In the picture you see her sitting..I call it her 'freeze bear" because she will sit like that for the longest time. She lets me know she wants something by sitting like this beside me and raising her ears straight out. I call this her helicopter ears I almost expect her to fly. She is very precious and everyone who meets her immediately loves her loving nature. If you have seen a man in the grocery store with a little white dog in the child's seat that probably is my husband. It is amazing to me that they never say anything.. oh dear!! 

And just so that you can capture the energy of an adult Coton and a Coton puppy here is Kitasoo playing outside the summer of 2009 shortly after she came to live with us. Kitasoo "Kitty" always wins!! This was her toy lobster she brought home from Halifax!

Cuteberry at Spirit Bear Coton de Tulears

Spirit Bear Cotons puppies..... 
This is a video of puppies from my last litter from Esprit de Tulear Spirit Bear "Cody" and Polana Kitsoo Spirit Bear. Cuteberry was born at 4 ounces and remains a very small Coton. She is now 9 months old as of this posting March 8th, 2012 and weighs 5 1/2 lbs. Cuteberry is a beautiful little girl who was born with a cleft pallet. Her story of survival is one that I am always ready to share. We love her to pieces and she remains living with us. This is one of those rare situations that can occur in a breeding program but I have learned so much from this experience I do not see it as a negative. I hope you enjoy this little video of Cuteberry and her two siblings Sonny and Sassy. Enjoy. I'm so sure you will get a giggle by her funny little Cuteberry noises and if you have dogs in the house I am sure her talking with capture their attention! In case this video sparks your interest in a Coton puppy I am planning for puppies to be born early July.2012.
