Thank you to Chie Ejima (Queen Bless, Japan) for entrusting us with our very first Papillon:

FCI Int’l CH, Can GRCH, Am CH, Jap CH, Kor CH, UKC CH, JWW’19, Asia Winner’19 Queen Bless JP Winning Ticket RN, BCAT, CA, NS, TT, TKN, CGC, RTD – JJ

There is a story about how we ended up with JJ…

A few years ago, Mike and I attended Crufts in an effort to finalize whether the Papillon might be the right breed for us. We had been breeding Rottweilers successfully for over 25 years under the Esmond Rottweilers prefix, but felt it was time to add a smaller dog to our family.

And JJ was the perfect addition! So, how did he end up in Canada?

While at Crufts, I fell in love with a young dog immediately upon seeing him walk into the ring. That dog turned out to be BIS BISS #1 Japan, IntCh, MultiCh Queen Bless JP Pure Cherry Matthew.

I couldn’t stop thinking about Matthew and reached out to Chie several times. Eventually, a common friend, connected us and helped Chie and I forge a relationship – Thanks Kim! Chie and I began working together to identify the right pup. In the end, it was JJ! Below is JJ (right), pictured with his sire Matthew (left).

Jj’s dam is also a success in the ring. She is BIS BISS IntCh Precious Majesty JP Queen Bless Win, so JJ has big shoes to fill!

Thank you to Chie for handling JJ to his wins and to his FCI International Championship while in Asia. We hope to now show him on this side of the world.

JJ is now in Canada and loves his new life!

He also loves his Canadian handler, Julie Corlett
