OC I think the dog in your photo's look alot closer to a pb Sibe then to a Sep... maybe it's just the way the picture shows him... but he's to fluffy and to wirey.

Anyhoo... I can't think of anything not covered in the links...

Did you know that no one is surewhere papillons originated? Both France and Belgium claim the breed as their creation, but neither of them are believed to be where the original stock came from. Many people suggest that the toy spaniels originally came from Asia (ie related to the Japanese Chin). The name Spaniel also suggests Spanish heritage, but neither of these can be traced. They just start showing up in European court paintings!

Did you also know that the papillon was originally called the Continental Toy Spaniel and in some countries it is still called that? It is also called the Squirrel spaniel because it carries its tail like a squirrel. It is sometimes called the Titian spaniel named for the famous painter Vecelli, also known as Titian, who first captured the papillon in Renaissance paintings. The most common term is Papillon which is French for butterfly which refers to the ear fringing looking like the wingspan of a butterfly. The drop eared version is known as the Phalene which translates to moth.

Did you know that when a pug straightens its tail and runs like mad in circles it's called doing the Pugtona. Especially when you get a pug party of 20+ pugs going at the same time.
