My Mom named me after her favorite style icon, movie star and humanitarian. I am often told I fit my name with grace, style, very tall and slender just like my namesake. You see, I am rare because I am considered Tall Malagasy Coton. Documented by Dr. R.J. Russell, President of the Malagasy Coton de Tulear Club, (www.cotonclub.org) I am created by a rare recessive gene in the natural Malagasy Coton de Tulear breed. I stand 16 1/2 inches at my withers and I am 17″ in length to top of my tail. I weigh 15 lbs. and travel by air in a large Sherpa bag on my favorite Virgin Airlines. I like the people at Virgin because they treat me like a rock star! My coat is not fur, it is soft cotton like hair (Coton is french for Cotton). I shed just like a my human Mom. I am hypoallergenic and I personally wear my hair in the style ‘full coat’ which means never been cut. Grooming only two times a week is all I require…. Unless I go swimming.
I’m very social, I go to work with my Mother everyday and I assist her with errands and household chores. Actually I follow her from room to room making sure she doesn’t sit down, because, if she sits down I don’t want to miss out on lap time! I go shopping regularly at the Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek where everyone there knows me. I have been going shopping with Mom since I was 18 weeks old and all my series of shots were completed. One of my favorite escapes is going to Lake Tahoe where I like to swim, chase sticks, chipmunks and Canadian Geese! I love to go boating, swim in the pool, take long walks and jog with my Mom. I am an all around sporty dog. Some Malagasy Coton owners consider me a large dog in a small body. Please do NOT mix me up with the American Coton, European Coton, Maltese or Bijon!
I have earned many certificates and been certified as a Canine Good Citizen. I proudly display my certificate on this website along with my CTCA Registration.
September 2013, I was starting my agility training but had to put it on hold to have puppies….. and that is what has brought you to my website.For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others~
