Our Coton family began in the 90's with Vayadios of Woodland Cottage at CUKOTON (Vadi). Not only was she a wonderful companion, she also excelled in the show rings too. Winning Top Coton de Tulear 1999, 2000 & 2001 & Top Toy imported Register. Vadi featured in Our Dogs and the Best of British dog's magazine 2001. This sounds more impressive than it was, as in those early days there were hardly any Cotons showing so Vayadios was up against many different import registered breeds big and small. She did have some brilliant winning results and won many hearts and admirers too. Vadi featured in the Kennel Club breed standard annual in 2003 and again in 2011. Vadi lived to the age of 18 years old and stole a piece of our hearts forever.
