Pictures of Stella and my Sister's Coton

Stella and I took my Mom and drove to my sister's in Nebraska this weekend. It was an 11-1/2 hour trip there and a 12 hour trip back. Stella did beautifully and was very happy to see my sister's 1-1/2 year old Coton de Tulear, Rico. I thought maybe some of you would like to see the pictures. They played very nicely but she let him know that she was the Queen and they'd play only when SHE wanted to

Oh, my goodness, what beautiful dogs. I love Stella's coloring.

The Coton sure looks like a Hav.
Glad they got along.

Wow, I can't believe how much Rico looks like a havanese. It's hard to tell from the picture, how much bigger is he than Stella?

I've never gone on a long trip with Piper-did Stella sleep most of the way? How often did you stop for her?

I'm glad you and Stella had fun!

We stopped only for gas, fast food and potty breaks at the rest areas three times each way. Stella did sleep almost the whole time. She is a good traveler. She jumped right into her car seat this morning when I opened the car door ready to go on another adventure. (too bad it was just to the groomer)
I think she not only inherited my late DH's eyes but his love of travel as well

Rico does look like a havanese but his front legs are shorter, he's stockier and his snout is shorter. His coat isn't as cottony as Stella's either. He is a real love though with a very sweet personality and smart as a whip.

so funny that they both have similar markings. rico sure does look like a hav to me (short legs even more so) I always thought Cotons' lost most of their coloring like sable havs. Cuban or French those are two striking fluffinutters.

Like Missy, I thought Cotons lost the puppy color also and ended up white. Cotons and Havs were the two breeds I was looking at and decided on the Hav because it seems they are so much the same in most ways, but I wanted some color. We have a nephew that got a Coton that is now about 2 and they thinks it's the best breed ever. At times I think about adding a playmate and still think about a Coton ~ but how can any breed beat a Hav?
