Our friends, Kerry and Roxanne Tunison, lost their beloved Gordon Setter, "Copper", last week. Kerry and Roxanne operate Iron Creek Kennels in Troy, Montana. We met Kerry and Roxanne about 16 yrs. ago at the local trap and turkey shoots, and invited him on a grouse hunt with Peat. Kerry fell in love with Gordons and Grouse hunting.
Kerry purchased Copper, a chocolate pup from Springset A Sure Thing, "Peat" and Springset Special Effect, " Celtie". Kerry then began a breeding program that has produced NSTRA champions. Our Sure Thing Sweet Mickey is from Iron Creek Kennels and she is superb.
Below, Kerry and Copper take First Place

Our hearts go out to you, Kerry & Roxanne, and we thank you for all the wonderful work you have done for Gordon Setters. Copper was lucky to grow up in your kennel.
