It was such a pleasure to meet Dori after our phone conversations and email exchanges. She sent a photo of his parents (he definitely takes after his dad) and was very quick to respond to my queries. When the big day came she introduced us to our new little boy, a tricolor Papillon, who was playing with his sister when we arrived. It was hard to resist taking the two of them! Xabi ("Shabee"), short for Xavier, has got the good looks of Xavier Bardem and the high spirits of the soccer player Xabi Alonso. At ten weeks old he is a good traveller, (sleeping for most of the five-hour drive), in excellent health (first trip to the vet today!) and, not surprisingly, a total charmer. He is eating well and getting along beautifully with his new big sister (a miniature Eskie); I am also impressed with how quickly he picked up on the ins and outs (literally) of potty training. What a smart little guy he is! He comes from a warm and loving home, and i could not be happier--thank you so much Dori!
