Our friend Riley just got a sidekick!! this is Piper, the tri-color Papillon also known as "the butterfly dog" or "Continental Toy Spaniel" and the breed hails from France. According to legend, Marie Antoinette carried a Papillon with her to the guillotine, the dog was spared and lived out the rest of it's life at a building in Paris that is still called Papillon House to this day. Great dogs, with great history! Piper is getting all of her stuff ready to come join us at The Fort and we couldn't be more excited to have her.
We have also received the newest issue of The Pet Connection's bi-monthly newsletter featuring yet another awesome article from our good friend that I'm sure some of you remember Garrett Stevens of Alpha and Omega Dog Training. So next time you're at The Fort, be sure to grab a copy of it on your way through the lobby!
Thanks for reading and have a fantastic weekend! Be sure to tune in Monday to check out this weekend's assessment.
