Its moments like this that take my breath away as a Chowist, historian, and archivist. To have this rare opportunity to connect with a family member of a legend in Chow history is an absolute honor. To archive these invaluable records a great responsibility and privilege. I will let you first read the email below, which I received from the great-grandaughter . Kate Gemmell was named after the breeder pictured above, (Kate or Mrs Bernard Cuthbert) of the celebrated Omar Chows. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Kate and her family for allowing ChowTales to keep this valuable breed history alive! I will be updating this page with more photos and dates as I find them in my albums.
