Gemma - litter sister to Dusty (Augustus) left
us in December 2001. She missed her constant companion as we all
miss them both.. Gemma had success in the show ring gaining many
1st at Ch Sh as well as her Stud Book No. 0574CA at ESS of Scotland
in March '1991. Gemma had a try at working but she was too much
of a lady for too much heavy toil, although she did enjoy retrieving.
She has always been afraid of water, even puddles, as at 4 months
old she fell in a local river in the middle of winter, cold and
with quite a head of water. She managed to clamber out but developed
a phobia to water even in the bath.
