Hi Glenda, I hope you remember us-I just wanted to drop off a line to you in celebration of Bandit's 1st birthday tomorrow!  I have to tell you how much we love this dog!!!!  He has been a pure joy to have this past 10 months.  Bandit is a very bright boy and he never fails to make me smile.  He's my little furry baby.  I am truly in love with him.  Yesterday we went to Manhattan and he behaved like he had been walking the city all his life.  In the beginning of spring I took him to obedience classes and he learned to heel, sit, stay, retrieve and "leave it".  By the way, he has been completely house broken for months now.  He even scratches the door with his paw to let us know he needs to go out. Bandit is admired wherever he goes, and we have even met some people who have heard of this breed (two people in the city yesterday).  Bandit loves to play catch with his favorite balls (he has a few) or with a little stuffed blue man.  He is so fast and agile.  We tease that he has rabbit feet the way he leaps when he runs around. We can't begin to thank-you for breeding these "treasures"-getting him was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am including a picture of Bandit just taken today! Enjoy, Maria, New Jersey

Hi Cindy, 
We bought a male Bolognese puppy from you last September, and I just wanted to say thank you and tell you how much we have enjoyed him in our home.  We named him Cosmo,  He has been the sweetest, brightest, most loving dog we have ever been around. My wife and I both grew up with dogs, and had one dog before Cosmo. We expected one tough year of dealing with a new puppy before he settled in and was really enjoyable.  Not the case, he learns quickly listens well and has become a member of the family.  House breaking wasn't super fast but not bad. He quickly learned what toys were his and what he wasn't allowed to chew on. (he loves he's toys and I don't think he could ever get tired of playing fetch).  Our two daughters (5 and 10) love him and he loves them. Cosmo loves to jump up on there beds and snuggle with them at bedtime. He has burrowed in and made a place in our hearts. If I were to try and imagine the perfect pet, or companion it would be Cosmo. Thank you so much. You have helped make our family complete.  Micha,

Hi Cindy, 
Just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying our new baby!  She is so sweet and has quite the personality!  We take her everywhere with us and she is a true show stopper.  People everywhere can't believe how cute and how tiny she is.  She gets along great with our other two dogs and loves everyone she meets!

We adopted a coton in October 2009 from you, his name is Potter and he lives in New Jersey. He is the best thing that ever happened to our family. He is wonderful and we (me, my husband, and two children) can't imagine life without him. He has an amazing disposition and is truly a member of our family. I just wanted to let you know how loved and well cared for one of your puppies is. I will try and send you pictures of him. 
Thank you,
Lauren, New Jersey

Hello Cindy, Its Walter. Just want to update on the puppy. He is doing very well with my family. My kids and wife love him and cant stop playing with him when he is not sleeping. Again thank you for the puppy, we love him. Here is a picture of him in our back yard exploring.
Walter, Texas​

I awake every morning with my furry little friend curled up along side of me, and I thank God for this feeling of absolute love. My husband is just as pleased and we both feel we are truly blessed to have her in our lives. I melt when I hear her characteristic Coton grrrrrrrrrrr...and when she stomps her little paws...I could go on and on.....My experience with My Darling Dogs, especially Sarah who I still communicate with til this day, was exceptional. You can tell they truly love their dogs and puppies. Great people, very accommodating, all about their dogs!! I would recommend them highly....that is how comfortable and confident I am with the way they conduct their service with the new puppy owners and how much I think of the superior quality of their puppies. A special Thank You to Sarah! I feel as if I acquired a friend for life. I am eternally grateful you choose us to be Tessa's family. You were so genuinely excited for us. We love you! :^) ?((((hugs)))) Last comment I want to make is, if you are contemplating getting a puppy from My Darling Dogs.....do not hesitate, trust me you will not be sorry! You will find a companion beyond your utmost imagination...a true refection of how they are affectionately raised before they arrived at your doorstep. You too can find this incredible love that just gets better with every day! Sharie, Kevin and Tessa, Michigan

Cindy .. Happy New Year!  Thought you might like to see an updated picture of Tinkerbell.  She has brought such joy to my life.  We girls(Mollie, Tink, and I ) have moved to a new home and the girls have just transitioned beautifully. It is so cute to see them cuddle together. Tinkerbell was spayed in November and it has not changed her a bit.   She weighed in a whoppin' 4.5 # .  I just had her cut for Christmas and I love seeing her cute little face.   That is what drew me to her when she was a puppy and I picked her from the others.
I Wish a Healthy, Happy New year.... please keep in touch.  Adrienne, Washingtion

Cindy...We love Toto. He is so adjusted. Goes pee pee on this pad. Does not cry at night. loves to cuddle. Thank you!!

Just thought I'd send you a picture of Bandit.  He is doing great!  
He finished STAR puppy school and did so well he actually took the test for the Canine Good Citizen and passed at the age of 4 months.  I think once he is a year old I will take him to hospitals and nursing homes to be a service dog, he is great around all people.  He is extremely smart, at this point he sits, lies down, will leave food until given permission to take it, dances, sits pretty, shakes, gives high fives, spins in circles (his favorite) and speaks. I'm not sure who got the lucky draw, him getting us or us getting him.  He is a wonderful
part of our family and we love him very much.  Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

I told Barney 9 Coton) a very funny joke, he laughed.

Good morning, Lucy turns 3 soon.  We adore her and I'm sure you know how much joy these sweet little dogs bring to our families. 
Leslie, Buffalo, NY

​We adopted our little bolognese  puppy from you almost four years ago (she was born 3/17/12).  We are the couple who lived in Brookings, Oregon and went on vacation and then dropped down to you to pick up Coco up on our way home.  I have meant to write you so many times to tell you the joy this little dog has bought to us.  She is a little doll and goes everywhere we  go. We have purchased a really nice fifth wheel and are about to embark on some adventures and Coco will be with us. We actually made some upgrades on this fifth wheel to ensure Coco is comfortable. Lol!
Here is a picture of her.  We like to keep her clipped shorter so it's easier as we travel. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Sharon, Oregon

Dear Sarah and Cindy, I think of you both often and have wanted to send you an update on Mia and thought this would be a good time since she turned one yesterday.  She is just a doll and brings much joy and delight into our home.  I love her calm demeanor and the fact that she is always aware of what I am doing?  However, her best friend is my five year old, Amy. She has maxed out at 5 1/2 pounds.  Stephany, Texas

Hi Glenda
How are you? Look at Kcoby lol.. Hei s so cute. Always talking with himself with weird noise ( like mumbling )
I think he thinks that boy in the mirror is a good looking that's why he keeps saying things and smiling all the time.
You have a wonderful day...  Nevada​

Glenda and Cindy, I received one of your dogs (Bolognese) "second hand" from my mother when Mom moved into an adult family home last fall. I was somewhat reluctant to accept Lizzie Darling because I was unsure if I really wanted the responsibility of a dog. I am writing you to let know she is the best companion. She is smart, playful and mostly obedient. I can't imagine not having her in my life.I have lived in my condo complex for 10 years and until I started walking Lizzie I didn't know many of my neighbors. I now know Jack, Ginger, Lucy, Katie, Bear, Gunner and their humans.  I just want to say thank you and let you know that Lizzie is happy, well loved and cared for. I live close to my mom and take Lizzie to visit regularly. Lizzie knows where Mom's room is and runs to her and jumps into her lap.  If Mom is asleep she always wakes up with a laugh to see Lizzy in her face. Warmly, Darcy, Oregon

​Hi Glenda!  How are you? It has been a few weeks since our beautiful puppy came home. I wanted to send you a note and tell you that Lika is doing great! She is adorable puppy and is making us all very happy. My son is completely in love with her and has already taught her to fetch us a ball!  Thank you again and again and again!  Sincerely, Julia, Oregon

I bought a male Coton de Tulear from you in January, his name is Archibald. I just wanted to tell you that I absolutely love him.  Archie even makes my boyfriend jealous!  He said that our "relationship is borderline inappropriate".  I think it's because I kiss Archie on the lips and cuddle him closer while we watch trashy reality TV together.  HA!  Again, thank you ladies so much for the love that you've made available to me!"  Shannon, Texas

Seth and I have been more than pleased with our puppy. "He's the  best," my husband tells me. He's smart, has a good balance of will and submission, is playful, affectionate, and the cutest little guy.   Everywhere we go, we are stopped with questions about his breed and  personality. We get "He's such a fluff ball," "He doesn't look real,"  "Thats the cutest dog I have ever seen," "He looks like a stuffed  animal," "Aw!..," and "I want one." Sometimes we even have to avoid  busy places because we don't have time for all the attention he gets.  He has been crate trained since he came to us thanks to your  introducing the crate as a safe place. He hasn't even ever cried  through the night. He regularly uses his potty bell to tell us he  needs to go out and he isn't even four months old yet. Blaise was also  the star of his puppy kindergarten class...he can leave a peice of  chicken on his paw if we tell him to leave it. Anyways, he is our  delight and we are so grateful for the love and care he received from  you in his earliest moments. I truly believe it paved the way for him  to be the great little pup he is today. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The Taylors, Washington

Hi Sarah and Cindy,
It's been 1 year since McGee has entered into our lives. We can't say enough about what an Enormous Lovable, Kind, Smart,Fun, and Humerous little guy he is. He started ringing the potty bell within weeks after getting home. He loves Life! We can not imagine ours without him. Everyone loves that he is black and white. He looks a lot like his dad Willy. We decided to get another Coton to add to our Family . Now we are waiting patiently ( trying) Lol, for McGee to soon meet his playmate
We are Truly Grateful for your time and love you put into your pups. Thank You so much for always keeping in contact with us on texts, calls, and pictures.

Cindy, Sofie (Bolognese) had her first haircut!  Margy, Florida​

I cannot thank you enough for this adorable addition to our family.  She has brought so much joy and happiness to all of us.  I cannot stop just staring at her and giving her many hugs and kisses that she has no time for.  She has totally moved in and now rules this household.  She is almost totally potty trained. She has slept the night through since day one.  She has mastered sit, watch and down with the clicker. Yes she is being clicker trained.  She is also totally crate trained.  She loves her crate and takes the best naps in it.  She is very high energy and cannot play enough, although, after about 30 minutes, she will crash for a nap.  She loves everyone, (people and pets).   
Peyton had her first visit with the vet for her 12 week checkup.  She was the prize of the day.  Everyone wanted to see the new rare breed dog.  They have not herd of her nor seen one before.  She wiggled her way into everyone's heart.  She is a big 3.1 lbs.  Her doctor told me her breeder was awesome.  Her bite is perfect, eyes amazing, joints perfect and a coat of hair to kill for.  I was very proud to hear how much he praised you both.  His comment was "I had done an excellent job in finding a breeder for Peyton". I am so blessed, not only with the two of you, but also with a vet.

Hello Cindy,
Just wanted to tell wish you happy (early) Thanksgiving...and let you know that Tucker (Brolognese) is doing great. He is such a charmer and everyone loves him at the dog park. Here is a recent photo of him. Aaron, Pennsylvania​

Our Roxie ( Bolognese) is so wonderful! We are just crazy about her. I haven't seen my husband this giddy over anyone in a long time. She weighed in yesterday at 3lbs 14 ozs. She's really growing fast, and is developing a sweet, sweet personality with a little bit of impishness, which I love. She's quite an extrovert. Roxie goes to work with me at my store every afternoon. All my employees and my customers love her. She has lots of attention and loves every minute of it. In the mornings she stays home with our housekeeper (who loves her almost as much as we do) who is helping us train her. She is about 98% potty trained and that was the easiest training I have ever done. She is just sooo smart. We are currently leash training her and she is doing well. She is retrieving her ragbones and her ball and is responding to "Sit". (At least sometimes.) I find that training her in every respect is easy. She seems to be happy learning. I am sending pictures. Please share them with Glenda. She is truly wonderful! Judy, South Carolina​

We just wanted to send you a quick "hello" and thank you again for allowing us to bring such a wonderful member into our family.  Blizzard is such a precious joy, and is growing up so quickly, it is hard to believe that we just became family in January.  The "Blizz-bear", as we call him, is just the most incredible addition to our small family (Bianca and I also have a Russian Tortoise named Sergei). Blizzard is our best friend when times are great, and the most sympathetic when times are grey.  He loves to cuddle at the first opportunity, but also gets a thrill out of chasing his stuffed friend "Pheasant" when he gets the chance.  Blizzard can sit, stay, lay down, and give "high-five" whenever requested.  He is the protector of the house and lets us know if he hears any noise that he doesn't recognize, and "celebrates" when Bianca and I come home from work.
After only 8 months, it is so hard to express our sincere appreciation to you for allowing us to add such a gift to our family.  Blizzard is loved so deeply by each of our families, and he is now the most important part of our extended family conversations.
In June of 2008, Bianca and I will be married in Germany.  As Blizzard is such a huge part of our lives, we have already named him the "Best Dog" and he will be enjoying our special day with us.
We want to thank you and your family once again for your early guidance, communication, support, and comfortable addition of Blizzard into our family.  We have been so blessed with his presence and would not know what to do without him. Thanks again for all that you have done, Doug and Bianca, California

I never before realized the benefit of getting a dog through a breeder until now. I had always heard concerns about puppy mills, specifically, the concern about possible genetic problems resulting from careless breeding. The main benefit I have found is that our dog "Coconut" came about 80% pre-house trained because its dog mother was trained already, and it just followed her lead. This is an enormous benefit. Other puppies I have had required the work of a new infant! My dog is very sweet and companionable - he acts like a dog who has been given alot of care and attention. The breed just seems to be sweet, affectionate, and calm. My pup is not an aggressive or yippy dog. Coconut is an elegant looking animal - he does not have the common look of a poodle or Bichon. People who love dogs are very interested in him because the Coton is not a common breed in the United States, so there's very much a "show off" factor!!!! Last, but most importantly, I have allergies to everything. When I had the allergy testing done, I am allergic to all 400 samples! This Coton is the FIRST dog in my entire life that I am not allergic to - his saliva (if he licks my arm or hand) does not make me itch. I have no sneezing, runny nose, itching, or skin irritation. This little dog can curl up on the couch with me, and I don't have to take a sudafed, or go wash my hands immediately. Yay! Yay! Yay! The reason I chose Glenda as a breeder is because on the telephone it was clear that she loves her animals. This dog is the dog love of my life! Thanks so much for sending him to me! Kindest regards, 
Gretchen, Pennsylvania

Cynthia,
My grandmother and grandfather could not be happier with the beautiful puppy. I will send you pictures soon, thank you so much, I think a new puppy is really good for the soul. My grandmother said that you were very sweet she enjoyed meeting you as well. We will be in touch, thank you for making this such a great experience, take care, Shannon, Boston MA

Seven years ago I bought a coton de tulear from You. I took a chance as I live on Long Island, New York and had Kobe shipped to me. I have to tell you, Kobe is my best friend. He sleeps on my bed and he is the love of my life. I had never heard of cotons before but they are special dogs. Kobe is perceptive, intelligent, sensitive and loving. I should have named him shadow because he is always by my side. He loves to walk and he actually looks like he is smiling when he walks. My husband was not sure about cotons (he was used to goldens and beagles) but he loves Kobe as much as I do. He is my fourth child.​

I am not being prejudiced when I say there is something special about this breed. He is sitting right by me as I write this, but I wanted you to know how much he is loved and how much he loves us. I am so forever grateful I found My darling dogs and am a proud owner of a coton de tulear. Have a great summer. will send you pics

Thank you,
Janine

Hi Glenda!   Sorry for the delay!  We’ve been meaning to send you new pics for the past two weeks.  I guess we have been too busy loving and enjoying (and training) Gino!  As you can see, he is adorable, growing, and thriving in our home.  He is a blessing to us all and has brought our family together.  People rave about him wherever we go.  Don’t be surprised if you get some e-mails from Bostonians looking for Cotons! HA!  We have been attending puppy school for the past two weeks and he is doing great.  He definitely has the sweetest temperament out of all the pups in the class.  And we’re not just saying that because we are proud parents.  He’s 5 months old today!  He lost both of his canines on the bottom as well as 6 other bottom teeth and 4 on the top.  He’s a toothless wonder!  Potty training is also going well.  He loves fetching and giving us constant kisses.  Hope you are well and thanks again for our precious pooch!!!!  Hope you like the pictures!  And a Bit Later.....Hi Glenda, Gino graduated from puppy school!  He was the star of the class!!  Hope all is well!   Katie-Nicole and Diane, California

​I just had to send you this picture of Lucy ( Bolognese) and tell you that she is doing great.  To me she is just perfect.  I have to laugh at her antics as she is very adventurous and will try anything at least once.  She sure lives up to her name!!!  Yes, she is a bit spoiled; she sleeps on the pillow beside my head and sometimes decides to join me on mine.  And with a basket full of toys, her favorite game is stealing socks and then the chase is on.   I hope all is well with you.  I can't tell you how happy I am I found My Darling Dogs which led me to Lucy.  As you can tell, I love her dearly. Sincerely,  Mary

Hi Glenda,  How are you? It has been a few weeks since our beautiful puppy came home. I wanted to send you a note and tell you that Lika is doing great! She is adorable puppy and is making us all very happy. My son is completely in love with her and has already taught her to fetch us a ball! I've attached a few pictures for you - hope you like them! Thank you again and again and again!   Sincerely, Julia,  New Your

I am enjoying every minute with Sophie ( Bolognese) and she is getting bolder, more accustomed to her surroundings everyday. She is basically very well trained and goes on the paper 90% of the time when reminded. We had her to the vet who said she is very healthy and she is about 2 lbs.08 ounces. She is a love Barbara  Pennsylvania

Greetings from California!
We were looking at your darling dogs website and my son saw 
Sherman's picture there (gallie's brother), he wanted to send a picture of Gallie (Coton) for her to be included too:) she just got a haircut and looks like a puppy!
She will turn 6 years old in July. It seems like yesterday when we adopted her from Idaho!  
Hope you and the family are well!  Hugs, Gallie and family!  California

Hi Glenda and Cindy!
I'm sorry I've taken so long to get in touch with you! Things are
going VERY well! Chelsea is the sweetest, cutest puppy in the ENTIRE
WORLD!!! Thank you for letting us have her. Today we had her groomed
for the first time and she did exceptionally well (I was a bit nervous
however)  :) Please know she is loved and cared for and she is EVERYTHING you said
she'd be AND MORE!!   Karen, Illinois

Hello Cindy and Glenda, Willow and Cricket, Ellis & I wish you a Merry Christmas ! Take care, Chris, Washington

I just purchased my first Coton De Tulear from Cindy and Glenda of My Darling Dogs and I have to say my life is forever changed. I found them on the internet and I have never purchased a dog having not seen them in person, so I was nervous. My experience with both Cindy and Glenda was absolutely wonderful. I must have called them twenty times and changed my mind at least twice and throughout the whole process they were so patient and willing to answer all of my questions. The first thing that I noticed when I picked her up at the airport was how well adjusted she was. She just looked up at me and tilted her head and it was then and there that I named her Dolly. Her demeanor clearly shows she was raised in a loving environment and not some kennel. I am forever grateful that I stumbled on to My Darling Dogs and I am looking forward to buying another little girl in the future. Thank you Cindy and Glenda for all the information and patience. Dianna, California
