View Full Version : The Adventures of Gemma and Razz

25th July 2009, 10:53 PM
We took Razz & Gemma on a walk today up along the river. This is the same walk we always did with Jewels. It's a really nice walk up along the edge of the Hudson river, with a nice path and plenty of grass and dirt for doggies to sniff. Usually, we see a lot of dogs, but we didn't get quite as far today.

Gemma is just learning to walk, but she did pretty good. She will go 25 feet or so on her own. After that, she needs a little encouragement and then she gets excited, her tail wags, and she is right there with us again! She seemed to really enjoy the path. We ran into some Canadian Geese and the dogs really liked watching them. They let us get REALLY close. One goose gave us the evil eye, but we were very cautious and did not get too close. The dogs had a really good time. We went early in the day, so the sun would not be so hot. It is shaping up to be a warm day in New Jersey!

Oh, you may wonder where Lucky and Sparky were. For this walk, we decided to drop them off at day care for an hour so they could play. They had a blast. Drop-in day care is not very expensive and they get to play and meet new doggies and we got to focus on helping Gemma get used to walking on a leash. She is doing really well!

Without further ado...here are the pics!

Pretty Girl!

Oh my, you take amazing walks :), Jasper and Gabby would be green with envy, their walks are not half as exciting.
It is so heartwarming to read Gemma's progress in her new life, she is adorable, I love the one of Razz and her together.
They are all great pics, thanks :)

Thanks everyone, she's such a good girl and really getting along nicely with Razz. They're my sister's dogs and Lynn got Gemma after her other dog Julie died at 15.5 from cancer. I'm really happy she did ... Razz needs a buddy!

Gemma is not a Cavalier - she's an English Toy Spaniel (AKA: Charlie, or King Charles Spaniel). She's a 2 year old puppy mill rescue. Her coat is shaved short because it was in bad shape from the mill.

Gemma is adorable. I'm so glad she and Razz are hitting it off. They look like they've known each other forever!
