Max and Gemma by Dorothy Thomson

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

My first 2 Shepherds……Elmors Zena (Gemma) on the left and Mr Blue Max (Max) on the right.
These were 2 real characters…………The stories I could tell would fill pages!!
Like the time Gemma left the ring at SKC Edinburgh, after winning her class, and promptly took a bite out of a lady’s burger……..Celebrating lol
Her thing was Food………….Max on the other hand could clear fences. He did on 1 occasion , take himself off to an open-day (fair) down the road!!!

    What a marvellous pair, Dorothy! Most handsome and a lovely pic of the darlin’s! And, by the sound of things, a couple of right characters.

  • Thank you Mike……they were indeed characters, I could write a book of the antics they got up to….like the time they managed to crash my van!!!!! lol

    Gorgeous Shepherds! They probably egged each other on!

  • I really appreciate that Dot. Soon after this I took in a cast-off pup (shepherd) and they took charge of the little 4month old, under-nourished, dumped soul and made her the confident soul that she became! I took her as “temporary” foster and had her for 11yrs lol

    What wonderful animals. My husband sitting next to me is hanging with his nose on the monitor. He used to have a sheperd, and worked with it. “Boy” was his baby. Maybe I’ll put Boy’s photo into my galerie.
    Have a nice weekend, we’ll stay in touch

  • Thank you Heidi, I know how he feels………this will alway be my “First” breed!
    Best wishes to you both x :-)
