We bought our first boxer Broomhouse Sea Queen Of Walkon in 1978, purely as a pet, mating her back to her Grandfather to produce our first litter in 1980. The pick of the litter Walkon Gin Fizz was in turn mated to Ch Tyegarth Famous Grouse resulting in Walkon Wotta Smasha who won the first RCC for Walkon at Bournemouth Ch Show in 1985.
She in turn was mated to Ch Tyegarth Glenmorangie Of Jenroy (Grouse's brother) and the bitch we kept from the resulting litter, blossomed into Ch Walkon Smash'D Again who was the dam of three champions, the founder of our strong bitch line and is behind every dog in the kennels at the present time.
Just prior to this we were lucky enough to buy in two puppies who grew up to be Ch Jenroy Pop My Cork To Walkon and Ch Slightly Sloshed of Sunhawk At Walkon. Both produced champions for the kennel and on mating them together the product was Walkon Pleasantly Pickled, herself the dam of a further two champions.
Our ultimate delight was combining the bloodlines of the two dogs we feel have been most influential in the success of our kennel - Pop My Cork and Smash'D Again, whose grandson Ch Blueprint Beern Skittles At Walkon, "Bundy", has brought the current generations of sucess to Walkon through his children and grandchildren. Please click on the link below to get his full story and our tribute to the most influential dog in our kennel as well as kennels throught the UK and overseas. He is the fifth genration decendant of our original pet bitch a fact we are hugely proud of!
