My name is Carrie Blair. I have been fortunate enough to find the wonderful breed of Papillon and have some beautiful papillons as well as make some special friendships. All of the Papillons that live with us are part of our family first. When we are playing in the yard together or swimming in the pond (yes, papillons do swim like little fish) they get lots of attention from our neighbors. They come to the fence and watch from windows because they say they enjoy the papillons so much. Neighbor kids come over and play with the papillon puppies & adults and throw balls and run around the pond. This has been great for everyone!
I hope you enjoy my site. Feel free to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
My introduction to Papillons was a surprising one. After many years of owning Golden Retrievers and thinking they were the only breed for me, I got my first Papillon. She was Springhill The Katz Meow (‘Miss Kitty’) and she changed me forever. I decided I must have another and told her breeder I would be interested in a show girl from two particular champion papillons she had.
Well, although she had planned to breed this girl to another sire, my chosen boy got to her first. I was excited!! I was the only one on her list!! I was getting my show quality girl!! Yippee!! When the litter was born (one boy and one girl), the breeder decided she didn’t want any more boys so was going to keep the girl after all. I was disappointed, to say the least, but went out to look at them when they were four weeks old. I said, (much to the breeder’s surprise, as well as my husband’s) “I’ll take him!!” It was the best start I could have possibly had! He became Am/Can Champion Springhill The Muppet Caper, SOD (‘Elmo’) and the sire of most of my beautiful papillons. See his tribute page here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNOj7XVafmI
Still needing that show quality girl, I inquired with other breeders in the area. Those of you who have been through this know how difficult it is to get a very nice girl. I leased a Canadian Champion (from the lines I had been pursuing in the states, no less) and bought a beautiful little girl from them. These two girls were amazing and, bred to Elmo, produced Victoria, Howie, Molly, Sara and Bobaloo…….All Am/Can Champion Papillons!
