Our Past

The Stilmeadows line was founded on the Afternod line, which traces its ancestry to the Gordon Setters founded by the Duke of Gordon in Scotland. In 1965, the late Dee Gidday acquired Ch Afternod Sybilla from Marion Wilcox of the Afternod Kennels. From this beginning, Dee Gidday went on to breed multiple champions that included specialty placers, Best of Breed and Group placers for more than 30 years. 

Below are some photos of the Stilmeadows dogs over the years.
