Forty years ago I fell in love with a 7 week Gordon puppy.  He was Wyneric's Strathbogie Rowan and he captured my heart from the moment I saw him. Bogie was the product of a lovely Grianan bitch (Mrs. Thomas Bocking - Canada) mated to the magnificent Ch. Deerswood Pintail (UK imp).  Bogie was my first... and will never be forgotten.

Harbinger Gordons has been home to Wyneric Gordons (Grianan/Deerswood), Fantan Gordons (Linda Charelebois), Tri-Sett Gordons (Karen Gatchell) , Posterity Gordons (Carol Froats), Kericreek Gordons (Keri Chard-Savage),  Triseter Gordons (Esther Joseph) and to Lainstaurn Gordons (Steve& Jenny Gibson) 

Karen Gatchell of Tri-Sett was instrumental and very supportive in helping me establish Harbinger many years ago....I thank you Karen.  

In 2003,  Atticus, the long awaited Scottish Deerhound came to live with me after we won a 5 point major at a regional specialty in the United States.  Atticus later became BISS Ch. Fernhill’s Atticus (Barbara Heidendreich) by winning the Capital and Area Sighthound Association Specialty Show here in Ontario.  Several wonderful Deerhounds later, we now share our lives with Atticus’ Great Grandson - Ch Caretta's Argyle of Harbinger (Susan Trow).  

We look forward to a future of Harbinger Gordon Setters and Scottish Deerhounds who exemplify form, function, temperament and health.
