CH ROC HAVEN PACKIN' A PRECIOUS GEM
Gemma is the daughter of CH Reydaleterrydale Rangel Purple Rain "Prince" and "Pearl", Roc Haven Packin' Pink Pearls, and the granddaughter of CH Stone Ridge Packin' Lipstick 'n Rouge, CGC, my Paxston, my very first show dog and champion. I whispered to Paxston, send me a special girl. Pearl gave me three great girls, Maddie Mae, Samoa and Gemma. It was a tough decision, to be sure, and this girl reminds me so much of her grandmother and mother, and she continues the "Packin'" legacy wholeheartedly.
Gemma is the first dog I groomed and finished myself, which took hours of training, educating myself, grooming and help from my family while we were away from home. I appreciate these folks more than I can say who contributed in part to the end result: Janet Framke, Susan DePew, Monte & Shelley Visser, Nancy Shelson, Shel Greb, Gerardo Reyes, Susan Kuhn, Terry Stevens, Heather Roozee, Grace, Mary & Stephanie Szczurek, and Amy Bieri. You all brought a piece into play to make my dream happen. Thanks doesn't seem sufficient.
