True story: Six years ago today I woke to hear a voice in my head say, "You need to look up Gordon Setters." 😴😳 I was a lifelong Springer person, in recovery from the recent loss of my last Springer, not yet thinking about a new dog, let alone a breed I had never once met. I sat up, and though I thought about asking this voice if I could have coffee first 😏, I rubbed my eyes, and as though this happens everyday (it doesn't), simply asked, "Why?" Be careful what you ask for.... Without much hesitation the voice answered, "Because Atticus is here." There is much more to this story, but for today, I'll just say Happy Birthday, Atticus. You were a magical, mysterious gift, the kind I have been fortunate to open every day. And thanks, Voice, whoever you are, I'm so very glad I listened.
