the first in the Northeast for 2001

September 8, 2001 - from late morning, until whenever.....

Bring your Cotons, their special foods and toys, and yourselves to a White Fuzzy Butt Festival!

Our plan is to meet lots of dogs, their warm, friendly, congenial owners, have some good conversations, eat some wonderful barbeque, and let everyone enjoy a great day in the country with our canine companions.  Our party is not sponsored by any one Coton Club and everyone is welcome!

Since this plan worked for the past two years we shall go forward with "the plan" again this year!

There will be plenty of food for the human companions and a plentiful supply of poop bags for the pups!

We have a fenced in area where the dogs can play as well as roughly 4 acres where they and/or their humans can walk and romp!      

Your Hosts: Marvin and Nedda Honig

Bijoux de la Brume Oceane, our Coton de Tulear and Wendell de Dogg, our West Highland White Terrier
