PostHeaderIcon If you have a Cedarwood Cotons family member with a USACTC pedigree, Please read this!!

To all my very much treasured and well-respected Coton de Tulear families, past and present who have USACTC Pedigrees for your Cedarwood Cotons family members:

The Coton de Tulear is in danger of being taking over by the AKC thanks to the USACTC- the organization with which I had been a Code of Ethics until their recently announced decision to take the breed into the American Kennel Club thereby joining the ranks of the puppymills-

I am sure many of you are already aware of the terrible threat posed to our breed by the actions of the USACTC from my previous E-mails, my various postings on Facebook, and as you know if you have been following my blog at:  http://cedarwoodcotonsdetulear.blogspot.com/       

The danger is very serious and the possible consequences for the health and well-being of the breed over time will be profound.

In response to this imminent threat, I have requested that all my own Cotons, past and present, have their data removed from the USACTC Stud Book and records.  I urge you to do same!!

The process is a simple one:

For anyone who wishes not to have their Coton included in the stud book to AKC, they will need to notify Ruth Weidrick, the current USACTC president in writing (by e-mail) that they wish not to have their dog included in the transfer to AKC.  Ruth will need your name, address, email address, phone number,  name of dog, registration number.

Contact Ruth Weidrick at:
windcrestcottagekyusa@yahoo.com

I don't know the cut off of when USACTC will actually turn the registry over to AKC, so anyone that wishes to have their Cotons removed from the USACTC data base should do this ASAP!!!

As you know, I have been a Code of Ethics Breeder with the American Coton Club for several years now.  This is the club and registry that will now be the only legitimate registry for the American Rare Breed Coton de Tulear.  You can access more information on our work to Preserve the Rare Breed Coton de Tulear at two sites:

Please feel free to share this information.

If you would like me to assist you in getting a new pedigree from the American Coton Club, please let me know!


Sincerely and with hugs to all,
