Gemma was our first Bernese Mountain Dog and the reason we are so enamoured with the breed. We purchased Gemma as an obedience dog, she began her show career at 11 months old and easily attained her Australian Championship title at 22 months. She is a large (26") bitch but moves very gracefully and loves to show off! She attained her C.D obedience title at 2 1/2 years old.
The highlight of her showing career was winning BEST OF BREED at Adelaide Royal Show 2005 under Mrs. Clare Coxall UK. Gemma has done consistently well at breed level. She is a dream to own and loves nothing more than to hang out on the farm with Luke. Gemma combines beauty, brains, soundness and a lovely gentle (but bossy ; ) berner temperament she is a real credit to her breeding. Unfortunately Gemma never had puppies but does a fabulous job as 'grandma' and 'fun police!' to our younger dogs and puppies.
Our beautiful, special girl left us in July 2010. We love you Hubble, we will never forget you xxxxxxxx
