also known as the 
Gathering of the Coton Clans

September 21, 2002 - from late morning, until whenever.....

Bring your Cotons, their special foods and toys, and yourselves to a Coton de Tulear 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 
- everyone is welcome! -

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

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

This year we have a special surprise - there will be some fantastic door prizes courtesy of Gayle Martz and her Company SHERPA. Her
website has more of the particulars

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

of year. 

R.S.V.P by September 1, 2002 so we can be sure to have enough for everyone! Our e-mail address (as a reminder) is,  you can also call us if you have any questions.

Include your e-mail address, and the names of the humans and canines coming when you RSVP so we can be sure to have name tags for you since not everyone knows everyone - including me. If you need them,  I will send you directions directly, or  for a map and directions,
