Dexter, Digby & Max

Dexter & Max, 'black and whites', and Digby, a 'sable' papillon (all little boys): this is their web page!

Dexter & Digby

Dexter & Digby together

They were both very cooperative for this photo, and I got their ears to prick up by suddenly announcing to them that Lorraine had arrived home ... 'Mummy's home'!

Digby is actually a very chilled dog, loves his home comforts, although also enjoys a tease and play fight with me, his dad.

Dexter and Digby's stories:

Dexter, born 19th August 2002, became the first of two new puppies in residence at the Willows! We became his new 'parents' on 15th Nov.2002, having driven over to Papillon Breeders Carolyn & David Roe of the Sunshoo Kennels, Lincoln, to meet our new 'baby'! In spite of a long journey in the dark down to Northamptonshire, before returning to South Cheshire the following evening, Dexter rode the miles quite happily, easily settled in, and proved himself a very good traveller indeed. Dexter enjoyed a good long life with us, almost reaching 15 years of age, until sadly passing away on 27th July 2017.

Digby, our sable, born 5th November 2002, and named after Everard Digby, a fellow conspirator of Guy Fawkes, became the second of the two new puppies, arriving at The Willows on Sunday 16th March 2003 having travelled up from Papillon Breeder Melanie Mann of Melangel kennels, Chepstow.


Dexter

Dexter in his own little world!

There's no other way to describe Dexter than to explain that he was often lost in his own little world, and more often than not, very content with his own company. Probably due to mild neck/spinal damage at birth, he was a bit highly strung; we still loved him though!

Digby

Digby relaxing even more!

Great shot of Digby having a really big chilled out yawn. He's an easy dog to get on with, although is very protective towards his mum. Telling him that I'm going to 'smack mummy', galvanises him into attack mode/play fighting - great fun. :-)

Digby

Nice pose from 'Diggers'.

Again, it wasn't difficult to fool Diggers into pricking his ears up; just got to announce that his 'mummy's home'! ... even though she hadn't yet arrived home (from work). :-)

Max

Max relaxing on our bed!

Max is the first of our dogs to adore sleeping on top of our bed with us!!! It's odd how this happens; the dog decides for itself, and Max made his choice. We love his presence though. He's adorable company throughout the night. Max is actually the 4th dog we've welcomed to our home. He arrived on 15th Sept 2017, and like Digby, our sable, came courtesy of Papillon breeder Melanie Mann. Thank you, Melanie. Max was born on 24th Jan 2015, and came to us at the age of 2 1/2 years, as an ex-stud dog.

Max

Nice pose from 'Maxi-Moos'.

What can you say except to mention that he's a superbly loving, obedient and obliging little doggy.

Max

Max and Diggers chilling a bit!

This was taken during the hot dry summer of 2018, and so, both lads found the cool tiles of the kitchen floor offered them some relief. It's worth saying here that Digby, our sable, on this photo is 15 1/2 years old! He's still in great shape for his age!
