We've had a higher than usual number of papillons in the house over the last week or so. First of all Bryan and Jarvis came for a few days while their people, Chris and Greg, had a short break.
Chris describes Bryan as the 'off road' version of a pap, he is slightly larger and is happy not to be encumbered with all that 'girly' hair getting in the way! Jarvis, however, does have to put up with the hair but he doesn't let it slow him down too much. His ear fringing grows profusely and....sensitive pap owners may not want to read any further at this point, you have been warned.........Chris resorts to trimming it (aaargh!) in order that he can actually see where he is going! It really is the most practical thing for him....... so I have forgiven her.
Both boys are lucky to live surrounded by fields full of wildlife and have a whale of a time on their walks. Bird flushing is a favourite and they would make great little gundogs!
For one day we had three extra dogs in the house as Sorrel arrived just before Bryan and Jarvis left. We manage fine with our visitors but it does mean we have a lot of head counting to do!
Although a happy little soul, I have a feeling Sorrel regards her week long stay here rather like doing time. She has to rough it in with the rest of the gang when I'm sure she much prefers being an only pap. Her time is now up as Linda and Ray will be home today.
No doubt Sorrel will be lying blissfully in Linda's lap tonight and regarding the last week as a bad dream.
