PCA Illustrated Standard Debacle ~ Part 3

If you have missed the first installments of this series you can catch up by reading part 1 and part 2.  Today we are going to be looking at comparisons of 3 different images.

For these comparisons there will be a copy of each original and then an image with Nancy Pinke’s original superimposed over the “new” drawing.   Unfortunately, these were not scanned in at the exact same size so Nancy’s drawings look a bit washed out when enlarged to the same size as the other one.    Shrinking the Carlson ones would make it very hard to see the images properly since the images are already relatively small to begin with.

This first set of images is of the Correct Papillon Head.

I was having difficulty getting this particular one to line up.  Usually they just fall right into place on top of each other, so I thought maybe there was some original work here.  I got the ears to line up really nicely, but as you can see the face is a bit of a mess.

Then I tried it from the opposite way.  Using the face to line things up rather than the ears and boom, it lined up right into place with just a small adjustment in sizing.

Next installment will be more comparisons.  I might mix it up a bit because it’s kind of boring doing the same type of comparisons over and over when the results are so predictable.

    Thank you because the truth is never boring.

  2. Hi Towal, this business of there only being one way to draw a Papillon is such patent nonsense, but I wonder if you have a copy of the CISPAP? If not and you go to Mike’s website, given above, and click on “illustrated Standards” then go to “preview of contents” you will see, in the section concerning markings, a series of 9 drawings all with different body markings and all taken from the same template.

      Hi Deirdre,

      That was a ridiculous argument in 2007 and it’s equally ridiculous today. I don’t have a copy of CISPAP sadly, but I will look at Mike’s website for the page you mention. I think anyone that has Paps know how that would have been the ONE thing that would have been so easy for Carlson to change. Paps are almost like snowflakes, you rarely see 2 that have *exactly* the same markings. I’ve had a number of dogs go through my house having been in rescue and no 2 have ever been the same.

    Anyone who looks at Deirdre’s standard drawings and mine can clearly see they are done by different people even though they both represent the standard. Our drawing styles are different and ORIGINAL. And about markings….just look at the mismark in my drawings. It’s a half face with white edges on both ears. And just how many ways can a Papillon be mismarked? Easily dozens of ways. And yet how did Mr. Carlson draw his mismark in 2007? It’s a half face with white edges on the ears just like the one I drew in my first booklet in 1991. And the “new” standard? Yup…a half face with white ear edges. Has anyone ever even seen 3 identically marked mismarks?
