Welcome Coton Lovers:

The Season of Gratitude:

Here in the U.S. Thanksgiving is a time when we usually stop and give thanks for all of the blessings in our lives. I hope all of our friends in the Northeast can put aside all of the frustration, fatigue, and feelings of being overwhelmed to find something to be grateful for this holiday season. It’s easy to be thankful when everything is sunny and going your way, but finding gratitude during these difficult days is the key to finding your way back to the light.

Living in Florida, I’ve been through a couple of pretty devastating hurricanes, and one of the things that really helped me get through was seeing that difficult times often brings out the best in people. I remember that even the smallest kindness was so appreciated – a neighbor stopping by to bring me some ice, a store handing out free coffee, or just a friend with a smile.

Thanks to Regina, Steve, BB, and Maximus for reminding us that it doesn't take much to make a difference - a smile during difficult times is priceless. Read about the power of cute Cotons here.

Just remember that things ALWAYS get better. All our thoughts and prayers are with all of our friends who were impacted by Sandy and hope you get back to “normal” or “better than normal” very soon.

Luc an I wish everyone a very happy holiday season.

  • Shout out to Cotton and Candy for their fabulous Halloween costumes. Looks like they had a blast!

  • Does your Coton celebrate birthdays like Baxter? Hmmm... I sure hope Luc doesn't see this photo or he'll be very jealous. Looks like Baxter had a very nice day.
