The life and times of Gemma

A touching memoir of a German Shepherd and her owner.

Bryan and Gemma in their garden

We rescued a long-haired German Shepherd and gave her a home with unconditional love and affection. Gemma instantly bonded with us and became my constant companion around our English country garden. Words cannot convey the love that flows between you and your pet, they hold a special place in your heart that remains with you forever. Gemma spent 24 hours a day in our presence, and became part of my work, play and sleep routine. After three years in the UK, she flew to her new home in America. Exploring the foothills, lakes and mountains of Northern California with her was an awesome experience, sadly, she was taken before her time. The life and times of Gemma is a touching tribute to her charismatic character and the profound impact she had on mine.
