This is Lisa Campbell. I am a longtime News Anchor and Executive Producer in Atlanta - and I can report to you that Showboat Kennels bred my beloved Milestone - a beautiful Coton de Tulear pup that became my baby January 4, 2010. Deborah Howington is a SUPERB breeder who knows this breed with intimacy and depth. She is not only knowledgeable about Cotons but knows which temperament to place with which new owner, to create the best 'life' for both the pet and its new family. We hit it off 'instantly" with a lengthy first phone conversation - and I can tell you that Howington is a breeder whose relationship does not end with the exchange of the pet. I would HIGHLY recommend Showboat Kennels to any potential owner of a Coton de Tulear or any of Debra's other breeds.
Note: I have looked in depth into the "anonymous" woman who has personal 'sour grapes' with Deborah over a personal matter and is trying to tarnish her reputation with 'anonymous' postings around the internet. The web is a wonderful medium, but when used unscrupulously, it's a potential threat to livelihood. Showboat Kennels has my personal endorsement. My experience with this breeder has been incredibly above board and my dog is happy and very healthy. I am loving my Milestone.
Best! Lisa R. Campbell, Media Consultant, Documentary Film Producer, Atlanta, GA
