Welcome to Windy & Ryder's website!
Our breed is Coton de Tulear (pronounced "coe-TAWN de TULE-ee-r) our
ancestors were brought to the United States in 1974 from Madagascar by
Dr. Jay Russell. Today, there are 2 standards of Coton de Tulear:
Malagasy and European, we are considered Malagasy.
European Coton's are a few pounds lighter and mostly all white, with a
brown or black nose.
But happily we are Malagasy Cotons, we are a very diverse group and
embrace all colors: White, Tricolor and Black & White. Some of us are
small and some of us a little bigger, but not too big. If we are a Tricolor
we will be born with some color; white, brown and black. But our color will
fade as we get older, some of us will fade all the way to white and some of
us keep a little bit; usually fading to silver & champagne. A black and
white is the rarest of colors and doesn't fade as much, but the black will
usually turn silver or gray over time. To learn more about our breed

Our human parents are Jaycee & Debbie Newman, they are proudly CTCA
code of ethics breeders; the only club just for Malagasy Cotons. We live
in both Oregon and Arizona. So, we travel a lot.

Windy & Ryder are now retired, we didn't want to remove all their photos to make
room for our new litters, so we are keeping this website up. We created another
website for their daughters and their babies at the above link.
We are and always will be Columbia Gorge Cotons.
We hope you enjoy both of our websites!
