Famously regarded for their butterfly-like ears, the Papillon is a European dog breed descendant from toy spaniels. Often seen in paintings of royalty, these personality-filled little dogs are as energetic and fun as they are stunningly beautiful. I had an absolutely marvelous time photographing sport dog Zen and papillon puppies Taco and Millie! The three romped around the fields of the Action Dog Sports club, that featured various dog sport competitions such as agility, nosework, and barn hunt. The lovely owners of the club breed papillons, and their pups are always the best examples of the breed. Exemplary ambassadors with beauty and brains to match!
