Papillon is French for butter fly , and it is easy to see where this breed gets its name (it is also called the continental toy spaniel ) . the slanted ears with cascading hair have an undeniably wing – like appearance . the fine , silky coat has no dense undercoat . and the plumed tail is carried over the back . the favourite dog of marie Antoinette, the luxurious coat gives the impression of a pampered lapdog , such an image is misleading , the papillion is an obedient , energetic , and outgoing companion
