There are differences between dogs that are pretty, dogs that are cute, and dogs that are beautiful. A pretty dog is a dog that is pleasing to look at but doesn’t fill the onlooker with awe. A person wants to play with a pretty dog.
The Papillon isn’t really a lap dog, and you’ll need to keep yours busy to keep him happy. Fortunately, they’re fun little pups, who are smart and learn pretty quickly. In fact, many Papillons excel at agility trials (and they look too cute for words while doing so).
