Coton Connection, Issue #065 - Do you know about this Coton book?
January 10, 2017
Welcome Coton Lovers:

Happy New Year!

I hope you enjoyed the holidays and are staying safe and warm.

Every year I find myself cleaning out the clutter in my home and office after the holidays. It just seems like the perfect time since I'm putting away all the holiday decorations anyway.

Last week when I was cleaning out one of my desk drawers I found this book Manual de Coton de Tulear. I had forgot all about it. I can't remember if I shared this with you before, so just in case, I'm sharing it now.

This is an especially good resource for new Coton owners. You can find a lot of the information in this book on our site as well as other places on the internet, but it's always nice to have information in one place. And it's relatively inexpensive. (FYI - I have no affiliation with this book & don't receive any compensation).

I've added the book to the resource section of our website as well.

If any of you have any more Coton resources you'd like us to know about, just reply to this newsletter and let me know.

When I was trying to decide what to write about in this newsletter, it occurred to me that over the last 8 years we've discussed just about everything - food and nutrition, potty training, behavior issues, and how to groom your Coton. Heck, we've even talked about the weather - how to keep your Coton cool or warm in extreme climate conditions ... If you're a new subscriber, you can check out our back issues here.

So, what's left to talk about? I want to know what you'd like to hear about this year.

I would love to hear your ideas, so just reply to this email and let me know what Coton related articles you'd like to read about in the coming months.
