The Walker Family’s Dogs

Yesterday, Joe and Cheryl Walker of Kuttawa, KY brought their grandson Grady to Roanoke Creek Ranch to get a puppy. The female that Grady took home was sired by Sallee’s Rustie Jr., a dog bred by Grady’s own great grandma Emma. Young Grady is the fourth generation in the Walker family to own an Old-fashioned Black and Tan English Shepherd. The cover photo is of Mrs. Emma Walker with her two Blankenship Dogs, Mack and Missy. Mack and Missy are also in the three photos below, taken in 1977.
