    Do your Papillons resemble any certain dog in their pedigree?

    I was just doing some pedigree browsing for Cali, and noticed how much she looks like her paternal grandsire, Ch. Fly Aways Giant Leaper, a Finnish import.

    This is her grandsire...







    And this is Cali...







    I think the biggest differences are the ear shape. His appear to be set higher and more correctly, as they stand up fully. Facial structure is quite similar but I think if the picture quality was the same, they'd look even more similar as his colours would probably be a bit more vivid. Cali has a similar amount of coat as well, although it's hard to tell unless I just gave her a bath and let her dry before putting her harness on her.

    So, does your Papillon have resemblance to any ancestor in particular?

    Mojo looks a lot like his grandfather, Elvis.

    While it is a very close relation. No denying that Mojo and his daughter, Rose,look like a pair of bookends. lol

    Really, Bravo doesn't look much like any of his grandparents....but he looks EXACTLY like his father.




    But there are some similarities to his mom, as well....

    Mojo does look quite a bit like his dad too.

    His mom is a minimal tri, but I can see some of her expression in Mojo as well.

    Hmm.. I had to go look through the photos I've collected so far. I think the closest in appearance is actually his great grandfather. His ears are more like his dad. He really doesn't look much like his mom, but the one he does look like is on her side of the pedigree.. it's interesting to look at all the changes through the lines.

    My boy, Smokie.

    From the pictures, Bravo looks like he got his mom's more slender muzzle, but that could just be the difference in angles between the pictures of his parents. He's going to grow to be such a handsome dog!

    MojoPap, I love the picture of Mojo and his daughter, Rose! She's adorable and they pretty much have the same expression on their face.

    And Risking Disaster, their shoulder markings look to almost be in the same place. I think if Smokie was a hound tri like his great grandfather, or vice versa, the similarities would be even more easy to see.

    The new owner of Mojo's grandfather, Pierce, posted a pic of all her Paps on the Facebook Group page for the Forum.
    Pierce is to the far right.
