Coton de Tulear vs AKC Mentioned in New York Times article

The AKC just can’t stay away from bad press lately which is too darn bad for them as the Westminster dog show approaches starting tomorrow. People are becoming aware buying an AKC dog isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. If you pay “Rolex” prices for a dog or puppy you expect “Rolex” quality, not so when purchasing an AKC dog/puppy.

In today’s New York Times the Coton de Tulear is mentioned in an article about the deception that is the American Kennel Club:

Breeder Sues A.K.C.

“Peterson added, “The A.K.C. believes it is not the number of dogs a person owns that determines the health and well-being of the animals, but the care and conditions that animals receive.”

Concern surrounding the A.K.C.’s connections to low-quality breeders has resulted in some dog owners seeking to distance themselves from the organization. In October, Hailey Parker, a longtime Coton de Tulear breeder, filed a lawsuit against the A.K.C. and cited the A.K.C.’s connections with high-volume breeders among the reasons. The Coton’s “reputation and business model is based on a disassociation from ‘puppy mills’ and similar commercial breeding operations,” according to the complaint.

The A.K.C. declined to comment on the pending Coton litigation.”

Well of course they declined comment, they’re being sued!

Old Snowmas Cotons Julliette at Glenn Meadow was born in February 2012 to our Sierra and Terri Tyler’s Jack. Julliette lives at Glenn Meadow Cotons in Delta, Colorado. She came to visit with the puppies and we were so happy to see her sweet face again. She has a beautiful coat, lovely face and cute little body. I’m so happy Laura and her family can enjoy her companionship and we’re all hoping she produces some wonderful puppies for lucky families who will love them forever.

Julliette, thank you for visiting granma and your siblings, it was great to see you.

Laura and her beautiful puppies from Glenn Meadow Cotons paid us a visit yesterday so we could see and play with the puppies. And also we were able to see our 1 year old Julliette who was born in Old Snowmass last year. See above post on Julliette.

As you can see the puppies are mink and tri-colored and just as cute as can be. There is still availability so if interested you may contact Laura or Edelweiss Coton de Tulear.
