Dedication of Brittany Bronze
The life-size statue was designed and commissioned by Ken Jacobson and sculpted by renowned artist Matthew Gray Palmer.  During the dedication, Ken spoke about his journey with Sam, Delmar and Rick Smith.   Brittany folks attending the inductions were all on hand to celebrate with Ken.   We finally have our breed represented in the museum gardens and are immensely thankful to Ken for taking on this monumental task.

Remembering Bill Cartmell, HOF
Bill Cartmell’s passing brought to mind the many contributions he made over his lifetime to field trialing and the Brittany. We were thrilled that Rheta, his “partner” in the many goals he pursued, was present with her daughter Patty and husband Tom Jeavons and her son Jim Cartmell. Bill was a driving force in making the Brittany Field Trial Hall of Fame a reality. We honored Rheta during the ceremonies and remembered Bill for his influence in bettering the Brittany breed.

The Iron Dog
Through the generosity of Ms. Barbara Rokas, one of the original Iron Dog statues, commissioned by Alan R. Stuyvesant in 1952 and created by sculptor Richard Fath from France, is now on display in our museum. This statue, along with other items belonging to Mr. Stuyvesant, was brought to rest in our hall by Bob Fleury, a longtime friend of Ms. Rokas. The Brittany Field Trial Hall of Fame is grateful to her for helping to preserve our heritage with memorabilia for our museum in the Brittany Hall.
