The Papillon called the Continental Toy Spaniel, is a breed of dog, of the spaniel type. One of the oldest of the toy spaniels, it derives its name from its characteristic butterfly-like look of the long and fringed hair on the ears. A Papillon with dropped; the small head is rounded between the ears with a well-defined stop. The muzzle is somewhat thin, tapering to the nose; the dark, medium-sized, round eyes have thin, black rims extending at the junction of the eyelids towards the ears. The large ears can either be dropped with rounded tips; the teeth meet in a scissors bite. The long tail is set high carried over the body, covered with long, fine hair. Dewclaws are sometimes removed; the straight, fine, single coat has extra frill on the chest, back of the legs, tail. Coat color is white with patches of any color. A mask of a color other than white covers both eyes from back to front. Papillons are intelligent and self-assured dogs that have a easy time learning new tricks; these dogs can be sociable with children and strangers, but are reserved around new people.
They can be socialized to get along well with other pets, but care should be taken with rambunctious pets or cats with claws, as they may injure them. If not properly socialized, Papillons can be distrustful and exhibit aggressive tendencies toward other dogs and people. Papillons may be playful and affectionate. Known as great companion dogs, they have the spirit and energy to keep up with active families, but can be calm enough to be happy with sleeping in the arms of an affectionate owner. Due to their high energy level, they demand an augmented exercise routine, relative to the average companion breed. Papillons are known as excellent watchdogs, as they will alert their owner to changes in their environment, they may be considered garrulous like many other toy dogs. They can withstand heat, but are more sensitive to cold temperatures because of their single-coated fur, should not be left outside unattended in cold weather; the most iconic aspect of Papillons are their ears, which are large and well fringed, giving them a butterfly wing-like appearance.
Papillons are white with patches of any color. An all-white dog or a dog with no white is disqualified from the conformation show ring. A blaze and noseband is preferred over a solid-colored head, but not required. Nose, eye rims, lips should be black. Paw pads vary in color depending on the coloring of the dog. Papillons can be registered with the American Kennel Club as the following colors and markings, with types for show purposes indicated with S for standard or A for alternate: The American Kennel Club breed standard indicates a conformance fault that may be penalized: failure of the non-white color to cover the front and back of both ears and to extend from the ears over both eyes. Not penalized are a slight extension of the white collar onto the base of the ears, or a few white hairs interspersed in the color – as long as "the butterfly appearance is not sacrificed". Two ear variations of this breed are seen, the upright ears of the more common Papillon, the dropped spaniel-like ears of the Phalène.
The Phalène are a throwback to their spaniel ancestors. The American Kennel Club and the Fédération Cynologique Internationale consider the Phalène and the Papillon the same breed; the temperament of Papillons is happy, adventurous dogs. They are not aggressive. Papillons make excellent family dogs, but should be watched around little children, as should any dog, due to a small child's lack of understanding of a dog's behavior and the likelihood that they will do something to upset the dog. Given the intelligence of Papillons, they should be given rigorous training and mental stimulation to prevent behavioral issues arising from boredom. A 2002 Papillon Club of America survey found that the Papillons of their members lived an average of 11.45 years. Papillons can live up to 17 years. Papillons have only minor health concerns, although patellar luxation and dental problems can be issues. Additionally, they can be at risk for progressive retinal atrophy, intervertebral disk disease, allergies. Play will take care of a lot of their exercise needs.
Daily walks or runs are an excellent way to exercise a Papillon. They enjoy a good romp in a safe open area off leash, such as a large, fenced yard. Papillons are a active breed of dog and enjoy having a job to perform. Papillon breeders recommend dog agility, rally obedience, or obedience training for Papillons because of their intelligence and energy level; the history of the Papillon is traced through works of art. The earliest toy spaniels resembling the papillon are found in Italy. Tiziano Vicelli painted these small dogs in many famous paintings beginning around 1500, including the Venus of Urbino. Other well-known artists who included them in paintings are Watteau, Gonzales Coques, Paolo Veronese, Mignard. In a painting after Largillierre in the Wallace Collection in London, a Papillon is shown in a family portrait of Louis XIV. Papillons are in paintings of royal families around Europe and paintings of merchant-class families; the breed was popular in England and Belgium, which are considered countries of origin by the FCI.
The "Titian spaniels" and those portrayed by artists through Mignard and his contemporaries had the drooping ears characteristic of today's Phalène.
Papillon is an autobiographical novel written by Henri Charrière, first published in France on 30 April 1969. Papillon is Charrière's nickname; the novel details Papillon's incarceration and subsequent escape from the French penal colony of French Guiana, covers a 14-year period between 1931 and 1945. The book was an immediate sensation and instant bestseller, achieving widespread fame and critical acclaim, is considered a modern-day classic. Upon publication it spent 21 weeks as number 1 bestseller in France, with more than 1.5 million copies sold in France alone. 239 editions of the book have since been published worldwide, in 21 different languages. The book was first published in France by Robert Laffont in 1969, first published in Great Britain by Rupert Hart-Davis in 1970, with an English translation by Patrick O'Brian; the book was adapted for a Hollywood film of the same name in 1973, starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. Charrière published a sequel to Papillon, called Banco, in 1973.
Papillon has been described as "The greatest adventure story of all time" and "A modern classic of courage and excitement". Although Charrière always maintained, until his death in 1973, that events in the book were truthful and accurate, since the book's publication there have been questions raised about its accuracy; the authenticity of the book was challenged most notably by French journalist Gérard de Villiers, author of Papillon Épinglé, who stated that "only about 10 percent of Charrière's book represents the truth". Charrière had a reputation as a great storyteller, critics have suggested that Papillon is more about a fictional character than the author. Charrière always said his account was true, that he told the story to a professional writer, who drafted it in final form; the publisher, Robert Laffont, in a late interview before his death, said that the work had been submitted to him as a novel. Laffont specialised in publishing true adventures, he persuaded Charrière to release the book as an autobiography.
As well as claims that not all events and jails which Charrière describes correspond to the time frame of events in the book, there are similarities between sections of Papillon, sections of a book written 30 years prior - La Guillotine Sèche. Dry Guillotine, written by René Belbenoît, was published in 1938, was an autobiographical account of Belbenoît's incarceration on, escape from, the French penal colony at French Guiana; the most notable similarities between these books were: Both authors described similar encounters with Goajira Indians. Belbenoît and Charrière both stated that they had, whilst escaping the French penal colony and lived with tribes of Goajira Indians who lived on the Guajira Peninsula. Both stated they had taken Indian wives during these periods. Both authors related a story about a group of escapees who had turned to cannibalism to survive. Whilst not unusual in itself, both authors told how one member of the group of escapees had had a wooden leg, that he had been killed and eaten by the group of escapees, that his wooden leg has been used as a spit, or as kindling, for the cooking fire.
Whilst Belbenoît stated in his book that he had been part of the group of escapees that had turned to cannibalism, Charrière related the story as having happened to a group of other inmates who were incarcerated in the French penal colony at the time of his stay. Belbenoît and Charrière related their experiences within solitary confinement differently, with the description given by Belbenoît not being as severe as that by Charrière. Most notably Belbenoît states that all those in solitary confinement were let out of their cells for one hour per day for fresh air and exercise, whereas Charrière stated that those in solitary confinement were locked up for 24 hours a day. Having questioned the accuracy of Papillon as an autobiography, there are a number of facts which are not in question, which do validate Charrière's novel; these include: That French Guiana operated as a penal colony from 1852 until 1946. Those transported there ranged from political detainees to convicts of crimes like murder, rape and smaller petty crimes.
Anyone receiving a sentence of more than eight years was exiled from France for life. That conditions at the penal colony were severe - "Forty per cent of new arrivals to the colony perished within the first year. Of the 80,000 or so who were transported during the colony's 94-year existence, few made it back to France. Most were killed by the merciless nature of the forced labour, the poor diet and lack of protection from the myriad diseases rampant in the unfamiliar tropical environment. Many died during escape attempts, savaged by wild animals, ravaged by scurvy, or picked off by professional escapee hunters - or in the case of sea-bound escapes, drowned or were eaten by the sharks that infest the coastal waters." Charrière was born in the Ardèche, France, in 1906. Charrière was sentenced in 1931 to hard life for murder and sent to the French penal colony in French Guiana, from which he escaped. Charrière did escape, became a Venezuelan citizen, successful restaurateur and best-selling author.
Papillon is best regarded as a narrative novel, depicting the adventures of Charrière and several fellow inmates, among them Charles Brunier. The book is an account of a 14-year period in Papillon's life, beginning when he was wrongly convicted of murder in France and sentenced to a life of hard labor at the Devil's Island penal colony in French Guiana, he escaped from Devil's Island and settled in Vene
