Papillon Breed Notes 3rd December 2018

Fairly quiet on the show scene at the moment. The last general championship show of the year is LKA in a couple of weeks. Always a very busy show attracting a good sized entry of papillons. The only down side is that there are usually quite a few dogs with kennel cough at this show.…

Our ring could have been larger and didn’t give much room for movement to be assessed particularly in the bigger classes.  Main results from…
