The 5th ANNUAL 

also known as the 
Gathering of the Cotons

September 13, 2003 - 
from late morning, until whenever.....

Bring your Cotons, their special foods and toys, and yourselves to a Coton de Tulear Festival!
(chairs too, if you have them - we never seem to have enough)

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 or organization.
- everyone is welcome! -

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

We supply plenty of food for the human companions and as well as a plentiful supply of poop bags for the pups!

Some years we have more surprises than others so we shall have to wait and see what will be for this year! 

There is a fenced  area where the dogs can play or they and/or their humans can walk and romp thru our 5+ acres !      

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 August 23, 2003 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.

Please include your e-mail address,  the names of the humans and canines coming, and also the town/city and state where you are from when you RSVP so we can be sure to have name tags for you since not everyone knows everyone - including me.
