Mickthea Xotic Dragonfire
Lola my second Papillon, came from Dorthea Robinson DVM, Mickthea Kennels in College Station TX. I was looking for a performance Pap and saw that many great dogs were coming from this kennel. Lola flew in sight unseen by me and of course stole my heart. I drove to the airport waited at the cargo desk for my new puppy to be handed over to me. It seemed to take awhile to get her. Then I found that the delay was, she was up in the lounge area playing with the employees. And so she began early in her career to be a Papillon good will ambassador.
She waltzed into the house, very sure of herself and fit in our family as if she always was there. She got along great with Travis and Sophie. Then along came a Border Collie and now Lola was the object of Devin’s undivided attention. Lola could not go anywhere or do anything without her Border Collie shadow. In agility Lola was wonderful. She enjoyed it and that showed in her performances in the ring. I believe the most exciting thing she and I accomplished was to get her the AAD in USDAA. It was a long time waiting for that last leg and finally at one of my favorite trials, Y Agility at the Blackthorne, she did it! She was an awesome jumpers dog, she flew through those courses in breakneck speed.
Lola’s other true passion in life, was retrieving balls. She was more ball-crazed than a Border Collie, she would do anything to get one thrown for her. She had favorites, small hard rubber balls, that I always had to search high and low to purchase them for her. She truly was a fun dog!
In 2000 she was diagnosed with Glomerulonrphritis, an inflammation of the kidney membranes. After that frightening diagnosis, with the help and care of my vet she was doing very well. She was on a special food, doing regular blood tests to check her levels and constant monitoring of her weight. Pancreatitis, was her final medical hurdle, so I gave her peace. It was the right thing to do
