I remember when I first became interested
in Papillons, we were watching the Westminster Dog Show and
there was a wonderfully animated Papillon in the running for
best in show. This little fellow just amazed me with his striking
attitude and unmistakable joy and yes he did win and was the
first Papillon in history to win Best in Show at Westminster.
Several years went by and I did not get a Papillon. Then one
day I was visiting good friends of mine Lawrence Anonychuk and
Karen Shiels, they had new house companions two
very cute Papillons Ch. Ken Mar II Run for the Roses and Ken Mar II Bunzel Electra my amazement of these
little dogs was renewed. About two years or so went by, then
one day when I was speaking to Karen on the phone she mentioned
little June and I jokingly suggested that she send her to
me and I would show and train her for the obedience and conformation
rings. Karen called me back about a half hour later and said
yes they thought it would be a good idea. So off I went the
next weekend to Lawrence's daughter's Darci, who is also a good friend and picked up
little June. I guess the rest of the story will unfold as
time goes on.
"He is your friend, your
partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his
love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true,
to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be
worthy of such devotion."
We have been very busy
since we received our very first Papillon June.
We have had a few litters of Papillon
Pups and a couple of very special
Papillons have come to live with us. We have been
very successful in the conformation ring with such wins
as Best Puppy in Specialty with Page.
We are also going to be venturing into the Obedience Ring
Plans are now in the works to add another wonderful girl
to our Pap crew sometime in September. Watch for her to
appear on our "Our
