My whole life has revolved around animals, people and children. I was raised on a small farm
in NH and my grandparents raised and showed poodles.  I am a registered nurse and the
mother of 3 children. I have been breeding Papillons for over 20 years. Our oldest daughter,
Erin, wanted a "Yittle" dog since she first learned to speak. After much research and
speaking with my vet we settled on the Papillon. He told me that it was a very healthy breed
with very few genetic or medical concerns. We started in dog 4-H not long after acquiring
our first 2 paps.  Erin literally had a room full of ribbons and trophies. Erin is now married
and lives a few minutes from here. She, her husband and 2 young daughters breed
Labradoodles.

Papillons are very smart and excel at obedience and agility, although they are just as happy
being lap dogs. Whatever your lifestyle, they happily adapt and adjust. They love romping
outside or can be just as easily house trained to use piddle pads for people who live in
apartments.  During the last 20 years I have been involved at various times with dog 4-H. I
was the assistant leader for a few years. I have also been a judge at several local dog fairs. I
am a certified dog trainer. I graduated with honors in 2003 from Animal Behavior College. I
did my apprenticeship at Petco in Manchester NH. I have also trained at All Dogs Gym and
with the Greater Derry Humane Society.


Our 7 Papillons are members of our family. They are not out in a kennel, but live in our home
and have quite a nice life. Pups are born in a whelping box next to my bed. The next 2 weeks
they are quietly spent with mom, nursing and growing. Once their eyes open at around 2
weeks the fun and socialization begins. My youngest daughters are 16 and 18 yrs old and
love holding, talking and playing with the babies as does my 10 year old grandaughter.  
Socialization is such an important part of a nicely rounded even tempered puppy.


I am available for the life time of all my dogs, pups. I have many references.  All of my
breeders are PRA clear, hearts and knees have been certified normal through the OFA. All
puppies and dogs are sold with a health certificate and medical guarantee. I do not
recommend Papillons for people with very young children, due to their small size. I want to
make sure that my babies end up in safe,wonderful, forever homes. I screen all potential
buyers. This is the most awesome breed and I want to ensure that my babies end up in
loving,safe homes.
