About Kalkite Papillons.
Kalkite Papillons has moved. We are now located on the outskirts of Cooma, gateway to the Snowy Mountains. Originally located on the foreshores of Lake Jindabyne in the Heart of the Snowy Mountains, we have relocated to a small acreage to offer our dogs more space and freedom to run and play, as well as unrestricted exercise.
Our little friends share our home, being both inside and outside with us. Naturally they all sleep indoors at night, and they are all treated as members of our family.
Our adventure with Papillons began in 2002 after the passing of a 17-year friendship with 'Teddy', my faithful little Chihuahua. His loss came close to ending our ownership of any future 'little four legs'. Then unexpectedly we came across a 12 week old puppy that changed the direction of our lives. 'Pappy', as we named him, is now the patriarch of Kalkite Papillons and stands watch over the antics of all of the younger ones. He knows he's not the Show Dog but he know he's the Boss.
Due to our proximity to Canberra we follow the ACT and Far South Eastern NSW show circuits. We limit our showing to once a month.This allows us to enjoy more of the 'Kids' at home and also allows us to follow our other passion that lays at our front door - Trout Fishing.
