Today is Melchior's first birthday. I recall vividly how I was walking along the big lake on Sunday, 11 of November, of last year, when I heard Hattie's voice announce, "I'm born."

We were expecting her to be born later in the week. I PMd the breeder Deb Ridley, who said he'd been born on Saturday and was indeed "an unexpected color," just as she'd told me she'd be so I'd know her from her littermates, who were black and silver--and was indeed a male.

Hattie had told me she wanted to be called Melchior this time. The inner voice I'd been hearing soon switched from that of a mature female to that of an eager young boy.
