Another Special Announcement from UCARE

Just in time for the Holiday Season, we’re delighted to announce the creation of a new UCARE exclusive! Produced by our Coton-friendly friends at Ali’s Treasures, we now have available a very special product which will delight dog owners everywhere - a unique pocket candy/utility tin, imprinted with the UCARE© logo, containing darling dog bone shaped fresh mints! Mints intended for human (not Coton) consumption.

Maybe not quite like the sweet breath of Coton puppies, but with your choice of peppermint or spearmint flavors, they come awfully close! And once the mints are used, you can either refill the tin with more mints or you’ll find a variety of uses for it. It’s our hope that each time you or your family and friends use this charming keepsake, you’ll be reminded of UCARE and how important it is to our wonderful world of Cotons.

So how do you get this great gift? Ready for shipment now, the cost for U.S. shipments is only $13.95 for one tin (mints included) and $12.50 for five or more tins. For shipments outside the US, add $2.00 for our Canadian friends! And remember, $6.00 of each order will go directly to support UCARE and is tax deductible. (Sorry to our European friends, but based on shipping rates and possible custom rules because the mints may be considered food stuffs, we need to limit shipments to the US and Canada at this time!)

If you’d like to receive your order in time for the Holidays and those stocking stuffers, we must receive your order no later than December 10. Please specify peppermint or spearmint or we will assume you have no preference and pick one

The last one!

You must think that this issue has been very long to be published ...! And you(re right! We are more than 3 months late, but we get some good reasons. We just thought that this last one l'Echo des Elingues magazine issue could be a good gift in this christmas time. So we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Yes you've really read that you were reading the last one l'Echo des Elingues magazine issue !

Why ? you can read here . It was during these 3 last years a great pleasure for us, but I must tell you that it was time consuming... I'm stoping breeding and you'll understand, for sure, that we stop too the magazine. It's why in this last issue we put in all the pictures and articles you send us.

Regarding the pedigree database, it will remain online and will be in 2004 updated (this can take some time) with the last pedigrees we received. When well put it off line, you'll know this on the website pedigrees.
We'll try to burn a cd-rom for those who are interested in, we'll let you know on the website.

Thank you very much for trusting us and over all a big thank you to the Coton de Tuléar, who, be sure, is the most marvellous breed that we know. Take care of them, they surely deserve it.

Cathy et Fred Armani
