Did you know the Papillon originally only had dropped ears and was called the "Epagneul Nain" or "Dwarf Spaniel"? Over time, an erect-eared type, resembling the wings of a butterfly, developed. Papillon means "butterfly" in French.
"Much of the Papillon's development is known because of its depiction in paintings. This tiny breed is recognizable in 13th through 15th century Italian paintings in the Renaissance period. They were often painted on the laps of French and Spanish noblewomen."
