Monaco Dog Show - Moth Dog

There are two types of Papillon - the Papillon (Butterfly or prick-eared) and the Phalène (Moth or drop-eared). The American Kennel Club consider them to be one breed but in other countries they are two separate breeds. The lady who owned these dogs told me that the Phalène was the original Butterfly dog.

So soft and fluffy looking.

So pretty. I do think they are considered the same breed here in Australia too.
I nearly bought one many years ago but I decided in the end to buy a pekingese.
