2014 has been an amzing showyear for our new hope, Jespersen's Cacharell. She has only been entered 5 times in juniorclass here in Denmark. She got her very first CAC and became BOS with only 9 months in age. She has been best female and BOS 3 times this year. 1 time res.cac. Every time excellent - and best junior twice.
She ended 2014 with Best of juniorers, best female and BOS! Excellent, CQ and another CAC. We are very proud of her. She is not even 15 months yet. A fantastic start for our new girl! We are already looking forward to next year.
See you all next year!

Jespersen's Cacharell did it again!
EXC1 in open class. CK. BEST FEMALE with CAC and CACIB -> DANISH CHAMPION
We are incredibly proud. She has done well. We only exhibited her once in the official classes abroad. Namely, the European winner show. Here she was Vice European Winner and res. cac and res. Cacib.
Thanks to Judge Jose C. Silva Zeferino for this judgement for Herning CACIB exhibition 2015.
The first time since I am a breeder I made a progenygroup with a dog from my own breedingprogram.
Jespersens Montana. It was a great experience, because both judges, first in the showring, and than in the Ring of Honor have been impresst about the qualitet of the dogs.
The youngest offspring of Jespersens Montana was even Best in Breed, a girl in the age of 10 month, 47 cotons entered on the int. Show in Fredericia, 2016
After a quiet period we will update now Montana's last success in the show ring (the last from 2015 to July 2016).
We start with the World Dog Show in Milan, where Montana was ranked No. 4 in its class. On the national show day in, he won his class and got a CAC.
Montana has been exhibited in Luxemburg and won the title Bennelux Winner.
After Montana got her last CAC in Denmark and has thus earned his Danish Championship went to Sweden.
He has met two of her puppies, which looks very fine, Totte and Ines.
He was Best of Breed, and thus got its Swedish championship.
After having acquired the Swedish and Danish champion title went to Erfurt, where Montana got his last (out of the 5 CAC as you need) for the German championship. and thus he achieved three further champion titles. International Champion, VDH and DE Championships.
At this exhibition now in Hamburg, I have been with my co-owner Dorthe Pilgaard, which otherwise makes Montana out alone. This has been a wonderful show and we enjoy ALT.
Again, Montana was Best of Breed and got some lovely pictures.
the exhibition has been very well organized from CCC club so we are there at the next exhibition again.
Now we come to the big summer exhibition in Denmark, Vejen, which has been 3 days with wonderful judges.

Jespersens Montana exhibition year 2016 and his offsprings
Jespersens Cacharell's litter with Cava Cotons Winter Surprise, which is my second studdog, living by Emilie Andersen in Denmark.
Unfortunately, it is only now possible for me to report about this litter because my website has not been maintained. I now have a new webmaster.
It was a litter you can only dream of, first 4 girls, and then all, as you will see, beautiful. They all had this beautiful feminine expression like her mother, Cacharell, who is the daughter of the twice-worldwinner Bahiya.
Cacharell, like her mother Bahiya, was a tender devoted mother who suckled her puppies until the last day of picking up.
All four princesses have found a good home, will be shown in the exhibition ring and 3 are used for breeding.
Only one, Jespersen's Arisya remains in Denmark - breeding and exhibition dog.
Jespersen's Heidi Surprise was picked up by Canada, Saskatchewan, as a breeding and exhibition dog
Jespersen's Lipstick was picked up by Korea, Seoul, she will also help a new Cotonkennel in Seoul to help breeding good Cotons. She's got her favorite gambler, with her, Sensuelle Fortuna, who is already ready to be exhibited.
Jespersen's Scandinavian Surprise, aka Danica got a great home in the USA, is a playmate of an 8 years old daughter, and will be exhibited, just like her siblings.
The pictures can be viewed under Cacharell's puppies.
Cacharell will be mated again soon for her second litter, you can contact me if you want to purchase a puppy.

living in Canada
News: from our puppybuyer in USA, which have Jespersen's Scandinavian Surprise, aka Danica, we are happy getting this news and can help the family by respond on there questions.
"Today, Sadie and I took Danica to first day at puppy kindergarten. So fun! During the free play, she darted out to meet all these puppies, and seemed a little shocked when so many are sniffing bums, and she is face to face with a puppy much larger. She came back to me, and observed for a bit from under my chair, but it was not long before she got back out there, and was running circles around all of them. She was clearly having a blast and the queen of the playground! This training center has puppy preschool on Saturday’s, and two puppy playgroups during the week, so we have signed up for three sessions weekly b/c she really seemed to love it.
One challenge I had this week was that she seemed to chasing and nipping on Sadie’s sneakers. It is not aggressive, just play, and Sadie is fine with it. I am not sure how to instruct Sadie to correct her, or if maybe the way Sadie plays with her could be encouraging this behavior, so the instructor is going to meet us before playgroup tomorrow to advise. This is normal puppy behavior I am sure, but figure it’s best to deal with it now, before it becomes habit. Sadie and Danica are just a pair made in heaven. I tell you Brigitte, that Sadie has not had her iPad once since that puppy arrived, and it sits in my desk without power, and she has not even asked for it once. This is such a blessing, and an unexpected blessing at that! "

SICKNESS IN THE BREED / ENFERMEDADES EN LA RAZA
En la raza Coton de Tulear hay una serie de enfermedades, al igual que en cualquier otra raza. La mayoría, afortunadamente, se pueden detectar - a través de una prueba podemos averiguar si el perro está LIBRE, es PORTADOR o está AFECTADO por la enfermedad. Cuando hablamos de enfermedades en la raza Coton de Tulear hablamos sobre todo de: Síndrome de Bandera (BNat), PH1, enfermedades de Von Willebrand tipo 1, CMR2 y PRA. Así como la luxación de rótula y alguna enfermedad ocular diferente.
Primero me gustaría explicar lo que significa LIBRE, PORTADOR y AFECTADO:
Cuando usted tiene un perro LIBRE - el perro no lleva el gen de la enfermedad, por lo que sólo puede dar genes saludables a su descendencia.
Un perro PORTADOR es un poco diferente, cuando usted tiene un portador, básicamente tiene un perro que lleva el gen de una enfermedad ¡Esto NO significa que el perro está enfermo o afectado! Es necesario tener dos genes de la enfermedad para estar afectado - un portador sólo tiene uno. Si apareamos nuestros perros con este conocimiento, se podran evitar nuevos perros con enfermedades. Debemos recordar esto: un perro portador es tan sano como un perro libre - nunca desarrollará la enfermedad que lleva.
Un perro AFECTADO tiene dos genes afectados, un gen afectado de su madre y otro de su padre. De esta forma podemos aparear un perro sano con uno portador y lograr algunos perros libres - y algunos portadores.
Antes de describir las enfermedades Es importante recordar que a pesar de que la raza tiene estas enfermedades, no significa que el Coton sea una raza "enferma", porque eso simplemente no es cierto. El Coton es una de las razas de perro pequeño más saludable que conocemos. Cuando chequeamos a nuestros perros, no es para "hacer enfermos a perros sanos" (como mucha gente afirma), sino para asegurarse de que sabemos con lo que estamos criando. Vemos las pruebas como una herramienta de cría que puede asegurar una raza aún más saludable. Queremos criar con conocimiento - para los nuevos criadores y para las familias.
Por el contrario, cuando sabemos acerca de estas enfermedades y podemos chequear los perros con una prueba de ADN a la mayoría de ellos, podemos encontrar quién es LIBRE, PORTADOR o AFECTADO. Por lo tanto, podemos utilizar las pruebas de ADN para nuestra cría y así evitar la enfermedad, sólo con el apareamiento de nuestros perros con conocimiento y la buena decisión. Arriba puede ver un esquema de cómo funciona la probabilidad de herencia.
Por último, pero no menos importante, damos las gracias al Club de Coton Canadiense por permitirnos utilizar su información.
Hiperoxaluria primaria (PH1)
La Hiperoxaluria primaria (HP) es un trastorno autosómico recesivo raro del glioxilato. Se caracteriza por la acumulación de oxalato y la posterior precipitación de cristales de oxalato de calcio, principalmente en los riñones, lo que lleva a insuficiencia renal progresiva. Si la capacidad de almacenamiento de los riñones se agota, los cristales se acumulan en otros tejidos incluyendo huesos, articulaciones, cartílagos, retina y músculos.
Los síntomas pueden incluir intenso dolor abdominal que irradia a la ingle, la sangre que se puede ver en la orina, y el paso de cálculos renales. Los cachorros morirán en el primer par de semanas.
Bandera's Neonatal Ataxia (BNat)
La ataxia neonatal es un síntoma neurológico que consiste en una falta de coordinación normal de los movimientos. En caso de ataxia neonatal la falta de coordinación normal se hace evidente alrededor de 3-4 semanas de edad cuando los cachorros están empezando a levantar la cabeza y se hace más evidente cuando están empezando a caminar.
La ataxia neonatal fue originalmente llamada síndrome de Bandera después del primer cachorro de la raza Coton de Tulear afectada, en la que se describieron los signos clínicos de esta enfermedad.
Todos los cachorros afectados muestran signos similares. Los cachorros afectados se alimentan bien y crecen adecuadamente, pero tienen dificultades desde el momento en que se vuelven activos. Los cachorros afectados son incapaces de estar de pie o de caminar.
Desorden de Von Willebrand (vWD Tipo 1)
La enfermedad de Von Willebrand (vWD) está causada por la insuficiencia plasmática del factor von Willebrand (vWF). VWF es una glicoproteína de la sangre (no enzima) importante para la coagulabilidad de la sangre. Su función primaria es unirse a otras proteínas, y también facilita la agregación y adhesión de los trombocitos al sitio de la herida. La deficiencia o fracaso de la función del vWF provoca una hemorragia que es más evidente en los tejidos que tienen gran número de vasos sanguíneos estrechos. La VWD se manifiesta como una tendencia al sangrado de la piel y los tejidos. La enfermedad puede ser hereditaria o adquirida.
La VWD tipo I, que es el tipo que ocurre en el Coton de Tulear, es la forma más frecuente y la forma menos grave de vWD. Se hereda de forma autosómica recesiva. La enfermedad se caracteriza por una baja concentración plasmática de vWF y una estructura normal de la proteína vWF.
La mayoría de los animales afectados tienen pocos o ningún síntoma. Los perros con formas leves a moderadas de la enfermedad pueden no ser diagnosticados durante años. Las formas severas de vWD se hacen generalmente evidentes cerca del año de edad.
Retinopatía Multifocal Canina (CMR2)
La retinopatía multifocal canina (CMR) es una enfermedad hereditaria. Es un trastorno de la retina causado por la mutación en el gen VMD2 (Vitelliform Macular Dystrophy gen 2). El gen VMD2 está codificando una proteína bestrofina que es responsable de la formación derecha del epitelio pigmentario en la retina. Las mutaciones en el gen VMAD2 causan atrofia del pigmento del epitelio, lo que produce un daño grave de la vista. La enfermedad CMR por lo general surge antes de 4 meses de edad en un cachorro afectado. Clínicamente, las lesiones de color rosa / gris son notables en la retina. Estas lesiones son de diferente tamaño y forma y se producen en ambos ojos del individuo afectado. La ceguera total suele aparecer en una edad superior.
La mutación provoca que se formen lesiones en la retina que altera la apariencia del ojo, pero normalmente no afecta a la vista. Las lesiones pueden desaparecer, o pueden dar lugar a un plegado menor de la retina. Los síntomas de la mutación suelen aparecer cuando un cachorro tiene sólo unos meses de edad, y generalmente no empeoran con el tiempo.
Atrofia progresiva de la retina (PRA)
La Atrofia de Retina Progresiva (PRA) es un trastorno hereditario de la retina de los perros, donde las células sensibles a la luz de la retina están programadas para morir. PRA ocurre en ambos ojos al mismo tiempo, y no es doloroso. Por lo general, la enfermedad aparece cuando el perro tiene alrededor de 6 años. La PRA es una enfermedad hereditaria.
Debido a que la PRA hace que mueran las células sensibles a la luz y las células responsables de la visión en la luz tenue ("visión nocturna"), entonces el primer signo clínico que el propietario suele notar es la ceguera nocturna (visión pobre en luz baja) . Los propietarios a menudo notan el "resplandor" y aumento del "brillo de los ojos".
El signo clínico en perros con PRA es típicamente que el perro se convierte en ciego nocturno en la etapa temprana de PRA. En la etapa avanzada de PA todo el campo de visión en todos los niveles de luz se ven afectados. En la etapa final de PRA, el perro queda completamente ciego. En el Coton de Tulear lamentablemente no hay prueba de ADN para la enfermedad.
Mielopatía Degenerativa (DM)
La mielopatía degenerativa canina es una enfermedad incurable y progresiva de la médula espinal canina. Su inicio es típicamente a partir de los 7 años. La debilidad progresiva y la falta de coordinación de los miembros posteriores son a menudo los primeros signos observados en perros afectados, con progresión en el tiempo para completar la parálisis. Un perro con mielopatía degenerativa a menudo se mantiene con las patas juntas y puede no corregir una posición inusual del pie debido a una falta de conciencia de su propia posición.
DM afecta inicialmente a las patas traseras y causa debilidad muscular y pérdida y falta de coordinación. Estos síntomas podrían parecer de artritis. El perro puede arrastrar una o ambas patas traseras cuando camina. Este arrastre puede hacer que las almohadillas de una pata se desgasten. El problema puede conducir a una parálisis extensa de las patas traseras. A medida que avanza la enfermedad, el animal puede presentar síntomas tales como incontinencia y tiene considerables dificultades tanto con el equilibrio como al caminar.
Luxación de rótula
La rótula es parte de la articulación de la rodilla. En la luxación de rótula, la rótula se luxa, o sale fuera de lugar, ya sea en posición medial o lateral. La luxación de rótula medial debe considerarse una enfermedad hereditaria y se observa a menudo en los cachorros. La heredabilidad de la luxación de rótula lateral es desconocida. Por lo general aparece más tarde, alrededor de los 5-8 años.
La Hiperuricosuria hereditaria (HU) hace que los perros produzcan la orina con niveles muy altos de ácido úrico. Esto puede llevar a cálculos de la vejiga y, con menos frecuencia, a cálculos renales. La enfermedad es hereditaria recesiva. Si el perro está afectado con esta enfermedad y ésta se ha desarrollado, será necesario medicar al perro a lo largo de su vida. Cambios nutricionales o una sola operación no es suficiente, ya que el perro seguirá formando estas piedras.
Tener un perro con dos de estos genes no significa que el perro ya está enfermo - sólo significa que el perro está en riesgo de desarrollar las piedras. Es una enfermedad muy dolorosa para el perro. Si el perro ha formado las primeras piedras en la vejiga o el riñón, será necesario algún tipo de tratamiento, y si no se hace nada, la vejiga puede romperse, y esto sería mortal. Existe un test génetico para esta enfermedad.
A la izquierda se puede ver una imagen de cómo pueden ser estas piedras - pero es importante decir que existen 3 tipos diferentes de estas piedras, y sólo una variedad pertenece a HU.
A HAPPY LETTER FROM A PUPPYBUYER - JESPERSEN'S SCANDINAVIAN SURPRISE ON HOLLIDAY
The best feeling in the world is to see Danica, and Sadie running free on the beach. You can see in the pictures, their little footprints marking the sand. When we first got here, Danica was discovering new things like the waves coming in, or the huge horseshoe crabs that are found on the beach. No swimming yet, as the water is too cold. I have been pleasantly surprised that it is quite easy to clean her up after making a mess on the beach. I have a great technique of using a high power blow dryer to get the sand off her feet and belly, and dry her off before coming in the house. Danica is loves to play fetch, and I have to sometimes say let’s slow down since you had cautioned about taking it easy on the growing bones. I will send video in next email - she is maybe running a little too hard, but I can say that she is having a blast for sure! We carry her on the stairs, and she knows to not jump from bed or sofa, and we are conscious to protect her growing body so that she can be strong and healthy to run as hard as she pleases when she is a little older.
Sadie has been working on her letter to her pen pal, and I think that today would be a good day to finish it up and send off to Jenny. I am sure Sadie will say it’s ok to share with you. She wanted to include pictures so I just pulled those off the phone to include with the letter.
Here are some recent pics of Danica, which I hope will make you happy. She is so loved by everyone, especially Michael, Sadie, and me. To have her in our family is such a blessing, and again, I want to thank you Brigitte for connecting us with our little soul mate.
How are you? Do you have puppies coming soon? Has spring come in Denmark?
Blessings to your family.

Jespersens Phantasia Fjordens Perl, aka SIA
A wonderful letter from my puppy buyer from the States which have bought last year the daughter of Jespersens Cacharell and Cava Coton Winter Surprise.
This little girl have a wonderful home and we are so happy found this great family for our puppy.
Jespersen's Scandinavian Surprise, aka Danica
Please forgive me with such a overdue note! Danica + Family say hi to you and Karsten and we want to send these pics along to show you how Danica is growing up and having fun. We started the summer at the beach, and have our last weekend right now before school starts up again for Sadie. It was just last spring when we first brought her to the beach, and she was so scared of the waves coming in and out, she would jump and run away each time like she had never seen one before. She really loves it down here, and now she even gets excited when we start to pack the car, and get our bags together to come to the beach house. She starts turning and turning around and running to the door to say lets go already! Let’s go to the beach!
She loves it at home too, where we have built a whole yard to suit her that is fenced in, with her obstacle course, and porch with fans where she naps. She is very happy engage the learning of tricks, and playing or inventing games, and adding new parts to her obstacle course.
When it’s time to play, she let’s you know with a very particular little noise she makes, which means, “Excuse me, I know you are doing the laundry, but will you play with me instead?”. It’s the same little sound she makes in the morning, when it’s time to wake up and go outside. It is such a polite little sound, I couldn’t call it a whimper because it’s not!
We had a few beautiful weeks in Maine at my parents house which is on a very quiet lake. This is where she took to swimming, and once she discovered the joy of swimming, she could not get enough! She also loves the kayak and paddle board, and she has her life vest for these trips because she loves swimming so much, I feel like she might just jump off the boat one day when too far out. She has been a good girl though - She likes to be on a lap for the boat trips, but is having fun just watching the birds float by, or look for animals and people on the shore.
Of course all the swimming and the running in the woods made for a challenging grooming season! And when the coat change begun, even more so, but thanks to guidance, and your book, as well as the insight that Coton owners share online, I was prepared. She is patient with the grooming, and it’s just a nightly ritual with us. In fact, she expects and looks forward to her grooming. She will come over to me, lay down, and tilt her head down and to the ground - that means it’s time for brushy brushy! I always start with the wood pin brush on the top of head down her neck, and her ears because she loves this.
I have every single brush in your book. The only one that has not worked out for me is the Mason Pearson boar bristle brush. I am not sure but it feels like it doesn’t get through her coat, or bring much hair off? I did get the Wet brush with boar bristle which seems to be a nice finishing brush. My daughter likes the Mason Pearson so it is used for sure! I love the Chris Christiansen combs - they are indispensable. As well as the Les Pooches red brush if there is a mat that will not come free.
I’m a little sad that the summer comes to a close this weekend. We had such an adventurous and fun summer, and she has been with us for each trip, being the best little traveller, always ready for a new experience, and along the way making all our family members fall in love with her. Fall is coming, and I shouldn’t be too sad, because Fall is wonderful season too, where there is not so many people at the beach, and dogs are allowed off leash at all times. At home, Sadie will get back into the routine of school, and Danica and I will drive to pick her up each day…Danica sitting in her booster seat, looking out the window, and making people in the next car smile, as we drive through the city.
Take care, and we will send another update soon!
This one is a few months old, so her hair is shorter.
Another offspring from Bahiya and Calvin is brought on the Top.
Winning BIS not so many time happens. Thank you Edward Kolenski, making this happen by showing our offspring. Now he soon will be traveling to Hawaii to his owner there.
AKC-Champion Jespersen's Kingsley

And a hug congratulation too to Jespersen's Sensuelle Fortuna, who finished her AKC-championship in the States and will soon go home with her owner Kim Boeun in Seoul.
We call her Fiffy, and she just have been on Holiday for 4 weeks, where she is been educated from her mother, learning climbing, barking, swimming, and is totally outgoing, This have been a good step in her education.
Jespersen's Felicia Fjordens Perle
3 Generations on holiday, Grandmother twice World winner Flamencoton Bahiya 9 years in age, mother: Vice-eurodog winner 2015 and Danish champion Jespersen's Cacharell (4 years in age), and the new girl Jespersen's Felicia Fjordens Perle, 4 month in age
I decided to attend the World Expo this year as a spectator, to meet dear friends from near and far, and to see how the standard of the Coton de Tulear is at the moment.
It was a pleasure for the eyes. The standard has really improved since 2003, when I was the first time at the World`s Expo. This time Jespersen's Ajax was Junior World Winner and Best in Breed in a very young age.
Some of the dogs were from my kennel, some had my lines in their pedigrees. So I was curious to see how they are placed. I was very happy, especially with all the offspring of my stud dog Jespersen`s Montana which is the son of my breeding female Flamencoton Bahiya. (She got two times the World winner title).
Jespersen`s Passion won the Open Class and was placed as second best bitch in the show, Vize-Euro-Dog Winner 2017.
Jespersen`s Khaleesi became nr. 3 in the big champion class.
All Jespersen's dogs got excellent, except for two bitches who are currently in blowing coat and therefore got Very Good.
On the whole I am very satisfied with my breeding program.

Felicia, aka Fiffy, was just been 6 month in age and could be entered in Puppy-Class, where her grandmother Bahiya was entered in Veteran class.
We have been very pleased with both of them. Bahiya was the best female in breed, even when she is now 9 years in age. Her judgment comes here:
"9 years, in the best condition demonstrated, correct head and expression, dark eyes, very good pigment, straight front, deep wide chest, correct top line, tail correctly set and carry, hindquarters good, friendly nature, lush race-typical coat, still moves very well."
She was Best Veteran, Best in Opposite, and got the Title Advent-Veteran-Winner 2017
Best in Breed have been Bahiya's grandson Simba, through Jespersen's Montana, which is Bahiya's son.
BAHIYA IS BACK TO THE SHOW RING IN VETERAN CLASS
My temperament bomb, Felicia, 6 month in age, has met my expectations, namely to contribute to the amusement of those present. As we know, the Coton was used a few years ago in the circus, yes Fiffy, her nickname, was the born circus dog.
After Fiffy got used to the environment, it was her first exhibitions, many peoples and animals in one room, it was great to move in the ring! Suddenly freedom!
Thankfully, we had a very friendly judge, who immediately recognized her quality, and gave us some opportunities, to show her gait - normal. She was then proclaimed Best Puppy in Breed. We have to see, what the future brings.
Here her critique:
"6 month, type feminine, already very well developed, correct head, scissor bite, dark eyes, very good pigment, straight front, deep, broad chest, correct upper line, tail correctly set and carry, hindquarters good, spirited nature! hair coat already very well developed, movement correctly, occasionally passes."

With joy and pride we think back to the past year, which brought us so much success.
We are now a little Kennel who only does one or two litters a year and selling to coton enthusiasts. They thank us with exhibitions and successes of our descendants. Is there a better hobby? No, if you love animals and people, it can not be better.
We are looking forward to the new year 2018, where we will increase the number of our show and breeding dogs.
We need new good lines to meet the demands we have gotten. It is not easy to find such dogs. Much researching is done, and now the first one is finally here, a new breeding dog, which I brought from Finland. Although I knew that his parents are free from all diseases that we can test with DNA, I immediately repeated the tests in Denmark, and got as clear back.
The little male is called Quiet Dreams Bolero.
We was staying with us at home for a month to meet him and gave him the name Rollo. Like all my breeding dogs, he too has been placed in a good family. We all together take care on him, my co-owner on him, Dorthe Pilgaard, and helping the family with the coat, so we can show him.
In March, a new show and breeding bitch will move in with us, which I will also pick up abroad.
We hope to finish soon Bahiya's veteran championship in Germany, and then we can concentrate fully on the exhibitions of the new dogs.
REVIEW OF 2017 AND EXPECTATIONS FOR 2018
Update on the grandmother Bahiya and her granddaughter Felicia:
They are really totally similar in their look. Bahiya is 9 years in age, Felicia just been 9 month!
I have been searching for a new line for my breeding program for a long time and conscientiously. And exactly 4 days before Christmas I fulfilled my wish and got Bolero in Helsinki.
The very dear breeder Johanna Kumpula, has come the long way from her home to the Helsinki-airport with 3 of her males, of which I was allowed to choose one according to my expectations.
My choice fell on Bolero. After being vaccinated the same day, the flight went back to Copenhagen. Bolero in the bag.
Bolero was in my home for the first 5 weeks, I wanted to study the character of this little guy and follow his development. Having found a good home for him, he is now placed with a nice family in Veijle, where also my co-owner to Bolero is living. So Dorthe Pilgaard can give a hand to the family for taking care on the coat and exhibit him.
All my three stud males are placed by families - it is a difference if you living in a house or in a apartment.
He has already won all our hearts through his lovely friendly nature. In all my years as a breeder, it was the first time, I met a puppy, which every morning is waiting for a driving tour on the dust-cleaner. showing pictures of it.
Now we will follow his development and exhibit him from time to time.
QUIET DREAMS BOLERO
He already have been on his first show, just been 3 month in age - he has half size from the other babies in his class, but he got a beautiful critique already. Next show is coming soon

The wonderful development of one of our breedings. Between Fortuna and my stud dog CavaCoton Winter Surprise. It have been the last puppy from our loved Fortuna. This girl's name is:
Jespersens Ziggi Wiggi
Already on her birth she was special, look on this wonderful first picture, she showed us her paws. Then we can follow her developing until she rocked the show in the age of 14 month. Manchester. Best Female in Breed with this judgment (judge: Greta Franklin):
"Full package, adorable head, dark eyes,well pigmented nose and paws. Mouth excellent. Outline standing and on the move where she shone,showing how well made she is with her straight front and well angulate rear. Tail set on the move full of confidence. Presentation of her coat perfect. Superior coat. Delighted to award Best Bitch which caused an uproar with the owner and rest of the Coton exhibitors"
We wish Ziggi and her owner Jane Pearman many wonderful shows together and great success.
We have planned two litters for the wintertime 2018/2019 with Jespersens Cacharell and also a litter with her daughter Jespersens Felicia Fjordens Perle.
Both females have all clear DNA-testings

Tsachillie's Amazing Lipstick
A little princess has moved into our family. Tsachillie`s Amazing Lipstick, we fell in love with her immediately after she was born, she was born in Sweden to very nice breeders, Kristina and Tom Milltegh, who paired with Jespersen's Captain Jack Sparrow, and kept a bitch and a dog out of this mating. This said dog, Amazing Alice is now the mother of my new breeding bitch. I have my old line back in my breeding program. And so far, the development of the little bitch looks very promising. She knows no fear, is loving and trusting, and already goes to her walks in the city.
Lipstick is free of all DNA-tested diseases in Coton de Tulear. We currently know 6 diseases. The parents have passed all tests with flying colors.
