My name is Annica Tjärnberg, retired Registered Nurse. My first encounter with Papillon was 1972. My parents got a male Papillon from Kennel Fjärilsbos . The Kennel was located just outside of Gothenburg Sweden. I was still in nursing school at this time and I was hooked for Life with this breed. It took many years Before I got a Papillon by my self. In 1987 I was able to get my own dog so I contacted Swedish Kennel Club and was pointed in the direction in my neighborhood where I lived. It was a beginning of a very nice friendship with Jennica LIndvall (Kennel Chatoy's) where I bought b dog from. It was Chatoy's La Conielle (Smulan). At the same time Jennica was looking for a coownership for La Conielles sister, Chatoy's Coco Chanel (Mimmi). Naturally I could not resist so I ended up with 2 dogs. Lovely tempraments and peronalities. Jennica also got me into the show circle and I was hooked again.
Our friendship developed over the years so she got me started to take llitters on my dogs.. At the same time I applied for a Kennel prefix. I came up with Liannica thinking of my sisters 3 daughters Lisa, Anna and Karin.
After a while I got involved in the club and held different positions in the Papillon Club of Sweden . I enjoyed it very much and I Think we accomplished very much during the time I served in the Clubs borad.
After beeing abroad for a while I got the fortunate to be coowner to a Lovely lady. Silenzio's Wash in Go (Tracey). She became champion in 2001 and has giving birth to several promising puppies. She is located in many breeding charts all over the World.
2002 she came over to me in Kalifornien where I worked at different ER in bay area. Tracey was pregnant when she came to me and in may of 2002 she gave birth to 2 boys. Unfortunatly only one survived and it was Liannica's American Hope of Sweden (Mickey).
After 2 years I moved back home and my little darling had to be in quarantine for 3 month. They managed very well
Both Tracy och Mickey is angels since a time back.
I continue slow but shorley my breeding programme E
