"The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or teacherous, is his dog..." -George G. Vest

Moons & Stars

Raising and showing dogs has always provided us with an opportunity to make wonderful, life-long friends.  Mentoring is a big part of being a responsible breeder, and many of our puppies are sold to show homes where co-ownerships are an integral part of the relationship (our "moons").  Others, whose owners have tenure in the Breed, simply become a part of our extended family (our "stars").  The opportunity to work together with people who, like us, have similar goals for the Gordon Setter Breed is a great experience.  Below are some of these dogs.  To see the rest of our extended family, click the links on the sidebar to view each litter's photo page.

Finn is the pick boy from the Moonsetter "P" Litter.  He is co-owned and loved by Roger & Vickie Hamel of Kalispell, Montana.  Finn made his show ring debut, handled by our daughter Olivia, at the tender age of 6 months - earning a 3 point major from the 6-9 month puppy class!  This was Finn's very first show - not a bad way to start off a much-anticipated show career! Between shows, Finn also plans to do some serious hunting training with Roger, and we expect great things in the ring and in the field for Finn!
Dax is the pick boy from the Moonsetter "O" Litter.  He is owned by Denise Bachelder in Iowa. Dax is Denise's second Gordon Setter from us, and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to co-own this boy with her!  Dax finished his championship in grand style (and in only 3 weeks!) earning 4 majors, including a Specialty Winners Dog/Best of Winners !  He also earned his first Rally Obedience leg at the 2015 GSCA National Specialty handled by Denise's daughter Rachael. We look forward to even more titles for Dax as time goes by!
Joy is one of the pick girls from the Moonsetter "M" Litter.  She is owned by Elizabeth Nolan of Keystone Gordons in northern California.  Joy is already started on her bench championship, and also has placements at field trials.  With this career in both the ring and in the field, we look forward to hearing more about little miss "Mahalia Joy" as time goes on.
Ryder is the stud puppy from the Moonsetter "M" Litter.  He is owned by Barb Steiber of Kopperklad Gordons in York, PA , who also owns Ryder's sire Peyton. Ryder is a UKC champion and is also pointed in the ring towards his AKC championship.  His future endeavors will include more showing and competing in agility with Barb.  We look forward to seeing more of him as he grows up.  

Vanessa

Vanessa is one of the pick girls from the Moonsetter "J" Litter. She is owned by Tom & Sandy Depottey of Randolph, Minnesota.  Nessa finished her bench championship with four majors, including a 5 point major at the Great Lakes Gordon Setter Specialty show in 2012, followed quickly by her Grand Championship.  At home, Vanessa lives with two other Gordons, her papa Charlie and Spice, and two Whippets.  She also earned the coveted GSCA "BBB" award for "Beauty", "Brains" and "Birdsense" - completing her Junior Hunter and Companion Dog titles in 2014, along with a lure coursing title.   

Jazzmine

Jazzmine is also one of the pick girls from the Moonsetter "J" Litter.  She is owned by Dan and Margie Uhlar of Highlands Ranch, Colorado.  Jazzy came back to Minnesota to finish her bench championship during the summer of 2014 piloted expertly to completion by our daughter Olivia and pal Sandy Depottey.  Soon after, she quickly and easily completed her Grand Championship. According to Dan, she also really enjoys her birds, and she proved it by earning her Junior Hunter title at just a year of age!  Jazzmine shares her home with three other Gordons. 

Thunder

Thunder is one of the pick boys from the Moonsetter "K" Litter.  He is owned by Bruce & Mary Keiser of Minneapolis, Minnesota - who also owned Thunder's sire, Boomer.  In the show ring, Thunder finished his bench championship easily with 3 majors.  He is currently working towards his hunting title.  We expect great things in "Der Der's" future, as he has big paws to fill from his Dad.

Kruz is also one of the pick boys from the Moonsetter "K" litter.  He is owned by Sue & Virgil Davis of Anchorage, Alaska.  This boy keeps the Davis household interesting, and on their toes.  We look forward to seeing him in the ring when he matures!  Kruz also shares his life with two other Gordons, Ginny and Libby, and a KBD named Pixie. 

Liberty

Co-owned with Sue & Virgil Davis of Anchorage, Alaska, Libby is our pick girl from the Moonsetter "E" Litter.  At just a few weeks old, there was no question Liberty was going to be something special.  By 6 weeks, it was clear she would make the journey to Alaska and join the Davis Clan.  A very serious and thoughtful girl, Libby exemplifies true Gordon Setter type.  Beautiful movement tops off the list of outstanding qualities that make up a truly special girl.  Already on the way to earning her bench championship, a Junior Hunter and an agility title, Libby is one of our proudest achievements.  Kudos to mom Sue for piloting Libby through all of these endeavors.
