I wasn't sure if this could go in the general gallery or not since it's not a Cavalier but a close cousin!

As you all know, my sister's sweet Lhasa Julie died last weekend at 15.5. As Julie was failing, Lynn knew she didn't want to deny Razz the company of another dog, so she started looking for a new sibling for him.

She fell in lve :l*v: with a little English Toy Spaniel rescue in Alabama (aka: King Charles Spaniel or Charlie). As you know, Alabama's not tooo close to NYC ... She and some generous & dedicated dog loving friends from this & other boards worked hard all week to try to arrange a transport, but all the legs never got together. :(

Soooo ... Lynn booked a flight into Atlanta early yesterday morning, and back last night. The ETS's foster mom drove Lynn's new dog to Atlanta. One of the people (Holly) generously picked Lynn up at the airport and arranged a brunch so Lynn didn't have to meet the dog at the airport. They just had a couple hours and then Lynn was headed back home with Gemma, her new little ETS whose named is a little tribute to her lost Jewel.

Here are a few pics of Gemma, first at the Airport where I brought Razz to meet her on neutral territory:

Am I cute or WHAT?

These are later yesterday. Note: she's not used to the Paparazzi and doesn't know her name so it's hard to get good pics:

Isn't my big brother handsome?

Oh she is just adorable :hug:

I'm so pleased Lynn managed to find a new friend for Razz, and I wish them many happy years together.

Congratulations to everyone who helped with the transport.

She's from a puppy mill. :( Two years old and probably has already had a couple litters. She is soooo skinny too, just like Sparky was. She had a hard start, but you'd never know it. She has such a happy go lucky personality. She's very sweet and SMART! Lynn has her almost leash trained already. And she gets along great with Razz. Lynn's neighbors told Lynn last night that they were happy she got Razz a buddy because he's been crying during the day since Julie's been gone.

Very nice. I wanted a black/tan Charlie, but ended up with a tri-color whom I love very much.

Just adorable ad what a nice addition she will make -- I hope there are many years ahead together for all!

I thought you had put a picture of a new human baby into the 'animal friends' section and was going to suggest she could go somewhere else... :rotfl:

There's actually a KCS in your back yard that'd make a great play mate, also black and tan. Not sure if I am allowed to post a link (I'm not affiliated), was on Petfinder. My wife won't let me have another dog :(

Better not tell my sister that ... she flew all the way to GA to rescue this one. :lol: That said, I think she wants to stay with just 2 dogs for the moment, but I might have to take a look at Petfinder anyway. I'm at my limit too though.

Gemma is such a sweetie. I can't wait to see her over the weekend and see what progress she's making.
