I am Sari Tapaninen. I have been living with dogs all my life. My first own dog was a keeshond. Then came papillons and breeding started in 1994 under prefix SABAMORES. i started with a Honey-Pots (my mother's prefix) bitch and the super bitch line is made from these fine papillons. I have exported papillons to Sweden, Germany, USA, Japan and Brazil. And imported new lines from USA, Sweden & Japan. I also believe in the international co-operation and breeder relationships and I try to visit all the important dog shows and papillon specialties as often as I can. I feel that it is very important to see papillons all over the world, not just in your own country. And meeting old and new friends who share the same intrest and respect for this wonderful breed is always fun and exciting !
There is now also a phalene in the team and I would like to thank Ulla Hanis, Siljans kennel for trusting Siljans Silk Stockings to me. She is a beautiful example of the breed and has an unique sense of humor.

I had my mind set on a scottie because our good friends had some lovely examples of the breed. But after seeing one stunning beautiful wheaten scottie, it had to be wheaten. No matter what it takes or how long it takes. And it did take some time and effort but Trudy, lovely wheaten lady from Russia, was found with a little help of Internet and some nice friends. Scottie team has now more members - and colours. Scotties have totally stolen my heart - what a lovely breed !
