Updated January 2020


Hi to all Papillon of SA club members. Happy New Year to you all.
As Australia Day approaches, it is time to send a reminder to everyone.

We will meet early so that the dogs can enjoy an early morning off-leash run, before the heat of the day, and before the 10 am curfew for free running.
Following the beach walk, join us for brunch of Eggs n bacon, sausages, bread and sauce, orange juice, cool drinks, etc. The cost will be $7.50 per head.
As this is a catered event, your RSVP is appreciated prior to this event, with attendance numbers, no later than 24th January. Please reply to Alison via return email, or via text or mobile number: 0419 850 258 in order that we may cater for you all. Your help with this request is greatly appreciated and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
This will be a casual, social day, and all you really need to bring is a chair and your papillons. See you there! Alison

BBQ Fundraiser, Sunday, 4th August 2019

Calling all SA members. This BBQ will take place on the above day at Banner Mitre 10, Blackwood. Thanks to Kristy Lewis for getting this underway for us, and please, anyone who would like to attend, please feel free to call in and say hello. Final start time details are still to be released, but should anyone wish to help cook a sausage or serve a drink, we would appreciate your offer of help. Should you wish to volunteer, please contact
Alison (0419 850 258).


Beach Fun Day walk, Sunday, 1st September 2019

This event has been so popular for the last two years, we have decided to hold it again. We will meet at Semaphore Beach at St Johns Park, at 10.00 am and walk with our papillons between 10.30 and 11.30 am. The BBQ will be fired up, tea, coffee etc with a sweet treat, all for $5.00 per person. So, please put the date aside, as we would love to
see everyone there, and the Papillons just love this outing at the beach.


Calendar Photographic Competition

Last year’s calendar was so very popular, we have decided to repeat this again, but with a twist. This year, we are running a photographic competition. The cost to enter this competition is $25.00 per person, with the submission of up to 3 high resolution (j[eg) photos, to be emailed to [email protected] and paid by direct debit into our club bank account, or by cheque. This cost includes a 2020 calendar for you. PLUS the winner will have their winning photograph framed by Joyce and John Sullivan. A huge thank you
John and Joyce for donating this prize.

Championship dog shows

The Papillon Dog Club of South Australia Championship Show will be held Saturday, 5th October 2019 under judge Maria Luisa Marchese (Italy). A new schedule is uploaded on the top of this page. A link for Easy Dog Entries will be uploaded once it is online. SAVE THE DATE! This show will be held in conjunction with The Adelaide Hills Kennel Club, which usually attracts a good entry, with overseas visiting judges. I believe in the same afternoon, our Papillons will be judged by another toy specialist visiting from Japan.
PLEASE NOTE: All members are welcome to attend this show. This is a free event to visit if you are interested in seeing some papillons “strut their stuff”. Dorothy and Anne-Britt who do not show their dogs are such a huge help at our shows, and we would encourage any members interested to attend.

The Adelaide Royal Show Day

On Friday the 30th August 2019 the papillons are being shown at the Adelaide Royal. All fanciers are welcome and we look forward to a very good entry. Once again this year we will be hosting a luncheon provided by South Australian members for our interstate visitors. This has become a great event for everyone. Last year, we had many from our Club come into the show and join us for lunch.
