Congratulations on the new addition! Pappillons are wonderfully intelligent little dogs. Cute as they come, too! I’m sure he will brighten your lives considerably. I look forward to pictures. :)

Ahh, house training, midnight walks, pink bellies and puppy breath. Can’t wait to see the pictures of the new family addition.

If he’s a chewer, don’t leave the shop extension cords plugged in…. you’ll have a ‘hot dog’! (I know.. shocking thought)

Have Fun with the new pup!

Congrats on the new pup! LOML keeps telling me I need to get another dog after Deacon passed on. I just can’t yet… Not sure yet, but I am starting to think I may be ready by Christmas…. She wants another Yellow Lab. I personally don’t care that specific, Yellow, Chocolate, or Golden Retriever (Black lab would be fried in 30 seconds in the Texas sun!). I just want a good versatile dog. A dog my family can be happy with, and a good hunter…

Enjoy your pup, and post pics when you can. We’d love to see him / her!

Puppies are very nice and they bring so much pleasure and good company.
Did you start to work on the dog house yet?

I went to a friend’s house who breeds and shows papilions. I was immediately swarmed by a dozen or so little dogs. I laughed and said they are kinda like pirhanas. One won’t do much harm, but when they school up, watch out!

We’ve had 2 papillions for over 10 years. They are GREAT dogs. I’m sure you will be very happy with the dog.

Our 11 year old female still has all the energy of a puppy and absolutely loves to play. Our 10 year old male is a cuddlier. I call the female the “master of cute” and the male the “master of sweet”.

My wife tells me that these are our last 2 dogs. We’ll see about that.

We have a Scottie that was diagnosed with Lymphoma last month. She is 10 and the prognisis is 30 to 60 days. Believe it or not, this is the second Scottie we had that has gotten Lymphoma! She has good and bad days but we are in it until the end. She won’t suffer. I made up my mind there will be another Scottie when we recover. Even with the heartaches the wee beasties are grand aren’t they? Best wishes on your new addition.

I had two shih tzu puppies that lived to 15 years and died of old age. They were a few years apart. The older one, Sheena was my favorite, and she always demanded to jump up on my reclining chair and take a nap with me, alongside, not on top of me. Thankfully they were small, 12 to 14 pounds as I recall.

..........I am sure your new dog will be a great friend, just like Sheena was to me…......
