Forevr Papillons was created in 1998 when Danny R. Ford II & Ruth Ann Ramsey-Ford joined
together in life and dogs. With the combination of Lyndylore & Envy Papillons we have created
Papillon Butterfly Bliss by blending together dogs & their legacy's that include present & past
Best In Show, Best In Specialty Winners, Group Winners, Placers and many many champions.
We have also successfully produced Obedience, Agility, Therapy and wonderful companion Papillons.
We currently have two homes. One home located in Danny's home state
of Pennsylvania in the Central Mountain area and our other home is a small
cottage in the Texas Hill Country near our daughters and grandchildren.
When in Texas our family plays a large part in playing and socializing
puppies in their early days of life.
As the years have gone by we have
continued to produce Papillons at the same standards of excellence as we
did in our early days of forming Forevr Papillons. We do our best to offer
our word with integrity to everyone who respect us with the same values.
Not only do we show and breed dogs we also support our breed.
Our dedication is not only
local but on a National level. Danny has served as a Board Trustee for the
Papillon Club of America and in 2009 was elected by his respected peers to hold
an honorary lifetime membership. Ruth Ann was show chair for the PCA
National Show in 1993.
She has served on the National Show Guidelines Committee
and the Judges Education committee and has volunteered for numerous tasks for
the club. Including working with Donna & Gia Garofalo of
Involo Papillons creating the PCA Judges Education Slide
show. Which is now offered to all AKC Papillon judges, and for purchase to
PCA members. This project was a huge task for the club and for the education of AKC breed
judges. In the future we hope to collaborate on additional breed
education projects with grooming, exhibitor and breeder education.
Both Danny and Ruth Ann are approved parent club breed judge
mentors. To become a mentor of PCA a person must agree to a code of
ethics, have continuous membership for 13 years and have bred and owned several
champion Papillons. We serve to educate prospective new Papillon judges ringside
and at seminars with discussion and hands on teaching with dogs.
Our support for the fancy
and education does not stop at the PCA level. We have several published
articles in different dog magazines such as Top Notch Toys, The Papillon Annual,
Pap Talk Magazine, The Australian Papillon Club and have been requested to write
articles for numerous other publications. We offer online email list
forums for the new breed fancier and pet owner called Papillon-Fancy. The serious breeder
exhibitors called Papillon-edu and the admirers around the world called PapWorld.

Ruth Ann has been
requested more than once to hold Papillon grooming and conformation seminars and
although she has yet to take that plunge, she regularly
offers private grooming and handling lessons.
and Ruth Ann have been featured as Papillon breeders on Animal Planet TV in the
breeder love stories segment.
Danny and Ruth Ann have
also judged a few Papillons. In 1999 Danny judged the Alamo Papillon Society
Specialty Show, 2000 was the Sweepstakes judge for the Metropolitan Papillon
Club and in 2007 Danny was the sweepstakes judge for the Papillon Club of
America National Show in San Antonio, Texas. Ruth Ann has presided as the 2009
sweepstakes judge for the Papillon Club of America NE Regional Specialty.
It goes without saying...
We have always attempted to offer our dogs the best home environment we can
provide. Every Forevr Puppy is born in the quiet comfort of our bedroom
were we can monitor their first days of life at all hours. After several
weeks puppies and moms move to a more active part of the house for the puppies
to start socialization by learning the sounds of the house. Later we like them
meet visitors go on car rides and attend puppy play days.
We invite you to look at our picture gallery of dogs and their
pedigrees or look at some of the puppies we have had on our puppy page. You will see that we
continue over 29 years of breeding excellence with the offspring of our Lyndylore
that makes Forevr the success that it is today.

In closing we want to say
we may not be rich or made rich by Papillons however Papillons have enriched our
Together Forever, we look forward to many
more years of our Pursuit of the Papillon...
Danny R Ford II & Ruth Ann
