This is Gemma. This pretty girl just had her 6th birthday. She’s been with us since she was 8 weeks old when I could hold her little piglet body in my two cupped hands. She was an anniversary gift. She has brought so much joy and amusement to our lives. She is our morning walking partner. Our hiking and snow shoeing companion. Ball catcher extraordinaire. Excitable home coming greeter. Protector of her people and her property. Foot warmer. Day brightener. A loyal and cherished member of our family. She’s gentle with the babies, and patiently puts up with them chasing her, or sitting and lying on her when they visit at our home.And even endures cuddling with Riley, our cat.
Happy birthday Sweet Gemma. You’re such a good girl.
“Because of the dog’s joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift.”
