Lucky Strike was bought in from his breeders Mr & Mrs Merrett and he won his first CC, with Best of Breed, at a young age when Mary Foan judged her first Championship Show at Three Counties. His second followed from Marian Fairbrother at the Scottish Kennel Club.

At the same time as we were campaigning 'Tanky', the kennel was going great guns with Ch. Winuwuk Good Golly and, of course, we also had Uncle Sam. As a result of this, Lucky Strike went to live with Jim Gardner in Ireland and, fittingly, it was in Ireland that Tanky won his qualifying CC at the Irish Boxer Club on the same day that the judge Lily Potts also gave Good Golly the Bitch CC and Best in Show.

Tanky was not used at stud as the hereditary defect, PA, had reared its ugly head by this stage and Tanky had a known carrier in the 4th generation of his pedigree.
