Formed to promote the breed in the South Island, the South Island Papillon Club has been recognised by the NZ Kennel Club and has had several Ribbon Parades and Fun Days at which our “pet owner members” have participated. Our first Open Show was held in December 2008 and was most successful. We will be having another Open Show on 13 November at McLeans Island. More details later.
