The Papillon Club of America has a nice Emergency Travel Notification Form on their website (perhaps with some modifications). 
The intent of the Emergency Travel Notification Form is to keep a copy filled out and attached to your dog's crate (along with additional possible copies in purse, glove compartment, etc.) and also a current photo of your dog with information written on the back such as size, age, weight, breed, name, etc. 
The page on the Travel Form is at:
The individual URLs for the form in either PDF or Word formats are at:
Here is the content of the form:
(Place this page in your automobile, RV, or whatever vehicle you may be driving or on your person when you are traveling with your dogs.)
