Kartel Brittanys Line History
1989 - Karen Sullivan-Thorne purchased "Sarah" (Rudy's Mother) OFA= Good (Rudy's Grandfather, mother's side)
1993 - Karen Met Richie & Teresa Frizella, owners of "Tip-Top Kennels:, Peacedale,R.I.
(Six generations of Trainers, Producers of American Field Champions).
1994 - Frizella's dog "Peacedale Trailblazer", bred by Bob Fleury (CT), is the son of
"AFC/FC Rusty's Smokin' Dynamo", and was bred to John Frost's "Lady Sarah Jayne Ziggy", whose foundation
stock was "DC Ban-Dee" and "DC Perry's Rustic Prince". (All 3 separate dual Champions).
1994 - A June litter, produced "The Count Rudolph JH" (OFA Good). Kartel's first champion.
1995 - "The Count Rudolph" was listed as
top ten Brittany Pups in the U.S.!
1998 - "Rudy" qualified for National Gun Dog Championship. He never went because Karen Sullivan-Thorne,
present owner, was busy in Maine, negotiating purchase of Kaylish Kennels, re-named Kartel Brittanys.
Lines from "Sarah" (Rudolph's Mom) originate from the Colorado Yankee Timber Line, which
was the first line of Brittanys in this country,
brought over from Brittany, France in 1929.
2006 - "Kartel's Count Oliver" (OFA Good) was bred to "Downwind's Suzie's Hot Cocoa"
(Downwind Kennels, Ontario) (OFA Good) produced 6 pups; 4 Males, 2 Females. All healthy.
Hence, "Cocoa" a dual-registered Dam, AKC/CKC (Owned by Dr. Paul Tessier) introduces great Canadian
lineage, to equally great American Breeding (Kartel Brittanys) with "Kartel's Count Oliver" to produce
a superb quality, sturdy, dual nationality, Family, Show, Hunt and Field Trial Dogs, with excellent
Grouse and Woodcock noses. In short, there is probably no other comparative breeding elsewhere
