Just look at these papillon pictures and you'll clearly see why the name of the breed was inspired by the butterflies. Their always alert ears look just like a pair of wings.
They are always elegant and graceful.
Of course, given the metaphor of the butterfly, is is easy to create original pictures (I just *love* the clock in the middle... it's difficult to say whether they're dogs or butterflies!)
More butterflies and dogs :-)
I think this is the guy who wrote the song "I Believe I Can Fly".
