We are a small show kennel located in sunny Florida. Baypalms Papillons is proud to be the home of multiple group winning, multiple BISS GCH CH Forevr Errol Flynn. Flynn was the #3 Papillon all systems for 2010 and was in the top 10 Papillons from 2008-2010. Flynn is also the 2010 Westminster Kennel Club Best of Breed and Toy Group 4th winner.
While living in Atlanta, I decided I needed a larger dog with a big voice to be a watchdog for me. Well, I got one! After doing my homework this time, I acquired a beautiful Collie girl, Ginger (U-CD Sheranda's Only You CD), from breeder Wanda Cable in Florida. Ginger was an awesome girl who had the sweetest temperament. Barking was her life and she was an excellent watchdog (maybe a little too good). In her later years, after I started with the Papillons, she was so tolerant of the pups. Ginger went to the Rainbow Bridge in June of 2007 after a year long struggle with a bladder tumor.
Because Ginger was very shy, I started her in Obedience classes and ended up doing competitive Obedience with her. She eventually earned an AKC CD title and a UKC U-CD title. She didn't really enjoy obedience and only did it to please me, so I retired her after she earned her U-CD, but the show bug had bitten.
I started looking for a smaller, more portable breed that I could train for Obedience. I also had been to a few dog shows and wanted to try out the Conformation ring. Once I discovered the intelligent, playful Papillon, I never looked back.
