Daisy Arrives

Having lost one of our two beloved Havanese to renal failure too early in her life, we were devastated as was her cousin, our other Havanese, Happy. After a lot of research we decided on a Coton and found Barb at Heartland Classics. First, she really runs a wonderful breeding area that does not feel or smell at all like a 'puppy mill". She was very knowledgeable about Cotons and how to raise them. Plus she has an extensive inventory of things one might need for raising a new pup. Our pup, Daisy, came home two days ago. After bit of timidity, she found her way around the house and has imprinted on our Havanese as her "mom". The two are almost inseperable. Our Havanese established her "Alpha Dog" position quickly, but has been extremely tolerant of Daisy chasing her around and jumping on her. Daisy is also a complete love to my wife, Joyce, and me. Of course, we are now in the early stages of house breaking, but by reputation, the breed learns quickly so we shall see. If we can get past this stage, she can occupy a spot on our bed the way our Havanese does. Barb also carries confinement products that may be excellent for those wanting a pet, but will be gone for extensive periods. Barb has the pups trained to use a doggy sandbox so they will stay clean and have room to roam a bit. This may be a good investment for you to consider. We purchased one, but because we are retired, we are trying to move her to doing her potty outside rather than in the pen. We are only on day 2 so have had a few accidents, but she is starting to understand that outside = toilet. In short, our Coton is everything we had hoped...loving, playful and friendly. And, Barb is an excellent breeder selling this breed at very reasonable prices for AKC registered pets. Were we to lose another dog, Heartland would be our first stop.
