Coton Connection, Issue #076 - Coton Holiday Safety
December 19, 2017
Welcome Coton Lovers:

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays! Another year just flew by. Once again, I'm so grateful for this amazing Coton community. I wish you all a wonderful holiday with plenty of love, joy, and Coton kisses.

I want to remind you to slow down and enjoy this festive season and enjoy your family and pets. Life seems to move extra fast during this time of year so it's a good time to make sure that your Cotons are safe during all the holiday craziness.

  • If your dog gets to unwrap presents along with the rest of the family, why not make sure all the dog toys are safe.

  • And this is a good time to review common dog dangers so your curious Coton doesn't end up in the doggy emergency room.

  • For those who are traveling with your dogs, here's a reminder of pet travel safety tips.

    I wish you all a happy, healthy, joyous, and safe holiday!
