Each advertisement received will be preflighted & proofread for any print production issue or an error in text. If issues are found, DCP & D will contact the advertiser. If we ask the advertiser to correct an issue, the advertiser will need to make the correction & send their ad back in a timely manner. DCP & D will not make changes to any press ready ad. We will not hold the Bulletin for publication for any late or unfinished advertisement.

You don’t have to be a writer to get your story published in the Bulletin!
Here’s the deal:
If you have an idea for an article, please let me (the articles editor) know.
Don’t hesitate to suggest a topic about which you’d like to write. Rough drafts, notes, or whatever you have is sufficient for us to develop an article under your by-line. Articles about dogs that win in shows and events are great; we also want to hear from those who win every day because Cardigans are in their lives.
Potential topics include, whelping, articles from judges about how they evaluate dogs in the conformation ring or judge performance events, introducing Cardis to multi-dog households, how a breeder evaluates puppies in a litter, puppy socialization, crate training an older dog, and whatever strikes you as information that can help to further the way we raise, train, and live with our pups.
Hint: One of our members has suggested that she would like to contribute an article about full-time RVing with Cardis, and another contributed an article about the making of a Cardigan cardigan from wool spun from fluffies’ undercoats. .
How it works:
Email me, Addy Alexander, the Bulletin articles editor to get the ball rolling.
Just tell me your topic and say that you want to submit a draft or that you’d like some help in putting your article together.
The “help” process includes our putting together topic outline for your article after which you can fill in the outline with paragraphs or just put in notes. When I receive that, my job is to help get it into article format and return it to you for corrections, comments, and, of course photographs to accompany your text.
Looking forward to the Bulletin’s continuing success.
