Cadence is my spunky little classic tricolour Papillon who was born on July 2nd, 2009. He is my first dog and is just a pet, not a show dog. He came to live with me on September 18th, 2009 at 11 weeks of age and weighing in at 3.8lbs. He is named after the musical term "Cadenza" (Italian). He came from an American breeder who lives in Washington State, about 1 hour away from Vancouver, so he is AKC registered.
Although Cadence will never grace the show rings, he is absolutely the smartest dog I've ever owned. He learns things that nobody's even taught him, and understands loads of words from the various languages that we speak at home! He is generally laid-back, but loves a good run around the yard chasing squirrels and our neighbour's cats.
What's Cadence like? He is ALWAYS ON THE GO (he's improved a lot, though. He used to be a whirlwind of activity--like a tornado!), friendly with absolutely EVERYBODY, and loves making new friends. He's a rather fearless dog except when it comes to loud noises like thunder and fireworks. He really does not like those.
Likes: treats (especially bully sticks, anchovies and greenies), strangers, car rides, walkies! Dislikes: thunder, fireworks, firecrackers, mops, vacuums & brooms.
