With the past two litters, I have had two puppies returned to me who went into a family with a toddler so I have decided not to work with families who have children younger than 5 years old.
My dear Mon Pastis of Cotonnerie died Wednesday, April 24, 2013 at the vets while under anesthesia having his teeth cleaned. It was a devastating shock to me and my Coton family. I hope to be able to continue with my breeding but all is on hold for the moment. I am still grieving.
Homage to Mon Pastis at
My name is Jim Luippold from Belchertown, Massachusetts and I would like to introduce you to my wonderful Cotons de Tulear. I have been a breeder for the past sixteen years and have my Cotons registered in the USACTC. I was Vice President of the USACTC for 2007-2008 , served as treasurer for the USACTC from 2002 to 2006 and served as Northern Rep for 2008. I resigned and quit this club due to the fact that the Board has decided to proceed with AKC recognition.
SINCE THE USACTC BOARD HAD SELECTED TO HOLD A TOTALLY UNDEMOCRATIC METHOD OF PERSUADING THEIR MEMBERS TO VOTE PRO AKC, I WILL NO LONGER SUPPORT THIS CLUB . SHAME ON ALL OF YOU USACTC BOARD MEMBERS !!
I HAVE RECENTLY JOINED THE AMERICAN COTON CLUB, BEEN ACCEPTED ON THEIR BREEDERS' LIST AND HAVE BEEN APPOINTED TO THEIR BOARD OF DIRECTORS AS TREASURER!!
YOU CAN GET INFORMATION ABOUT THE ACC AT www.americancotonclub.com
