My First Canaans

Owned and bred under Ellen's American affix of Briel Kennels

These few pages are just a start and are dedicated to Bryna Comsky, breeder of my Ariel Shin Ha'Aretz of Briel, and to the late Hinda Bergman, breeder of my Beth Din's Tabatha Beruriah. I will be adding more photos of my other Briel Canaans in the future.

A 4-month old Ariel
7-month old Ariel at his first CCA* National Specialty in Ohio, 1985. He won Best Puppy in Show and there was no photographer around. My friend cut his feet off in the photo. And yes, that is me. I was once thin.

Ariel and Xena
Ariel was only 10 months old when he bred Xena, who was then 18 months old.
They produced this beautiful litter of 8 puppies--7 boys and 1 girls. I was only able to place 5 and the rest stayed with me as there was little interest in the breed in those days.

* CCA stands for Canaan Club of America, the original name of the parent club for the breed in the USA.
