Ch Walkon First Past The Post

Born 15.01.12

"Archie" is the product of a half brother half sister mating between Ch Walkon Mickey Blue Eyes and Ch Roamaro First Issue By Walkon, both top producers and highly successful show dogs.

An extrovert puppy with a fun loving nature he was either 1st or 2nd in all but one of his puppy classes and was a natural showman. He won his first class out of puppy when a life threatening infection stopped his show career instantly and because of this we have never offered him at stud.
The subsequent diagnosis and eventual sourcing of treatment took over a year during which time it was not expected that he would survive, but for the dogged determination of Walker, Yvonne and our faithful kennel manger Margaret. Archie being Archie remarkably remained happy throughout and never stopped wagging his tail, so it was a very emotional day for us when 15 months later he returned to the show ring in June at Border Union 2014. Clearly still thinking he was a puppy he bounced his way through Limit and was just beaten into 2nd place! Despite him escaping from his bench and nearly heading off into the wide blue yonder it was a great day!

Things happened very quickly after that, he won his 1st CC the very next week at East Of England under breed specialist Dawn Pilling and two weeks later, at Leeds Championship Show under Laurence Morgan-Evans, he won his 2nd CC. Continuing to be placed in the first three in Limit he only had to wait until October where at Midland Counties under breed specialist and all rounder, Ann Ingram he gained that amazing 3rd & crowning CC and Best Of Breed! This has to be among one of the best days Team WALKON has ever had!

Over the next three years Archie has enjoyed consistent placings in the first three in Open Dog and had notched up a further 4 CC's, 3 Best of Breeds and 6 RCC's.

He was a Top 12 qualifier for the Boxer Event in 2015, 2016 and 2017 while his litter sister Walkon First Lady qualified in 2014, in his absence, and went on to win 1CC & 3RCC in her own right.
