Ember and Cabrera have two new brothers, Joker and Q. They are both Papillons and we got them in the same week, but they come from very different backgrounds. Joker came from a breeder that was going to show him but became very ill, so she decided to find him a show home. He is going to be shown in conformation, agility, rally, and whatever else he wants to do, while Q was an owner surrender that was hit by a car and had severe head trauma. Q has come a long way and is doing great. He has a lot of fans that have followed his story, and he even has his own Facebook page.
Joker has shown in two AKC shows and one UKC show. So far he has one win with competition in UKC. We are working on free stacking and stacking on the table for the judge’s inspection. Showing a Papillon is very different than showing a GSD!
Lucy is getting along great with the new boys because she’s a Papillon snob and only likes her own kind. She’s getting along better with Ember and Cabrera, but they still intimidate her.
