I’m going to give a short tribute to a fine bulldog who in turn was an excellent producer. His name is Bolyes’ Ch. Bolt Action ROM. His sire, Holland’s Gr. Ch. Cherokee Chief and his dam, Boyles’ Dirty Mary are both ROM producers. Bolt Action was the best producing dog off of Dirty Mary in many dogmen’s opinions.
Bolt Action was a 4X contract winner and lost his 5th to Winchester’s Champion Chaka in 1:16. He, Bolt Action, died after his last match and was relatively young but still managed to obtain 5 point ROM status.
Not only did he produce Champions and a Grand Champion but also produced dogs who in turn produced champions such as Ch. BlackBumphus, who produced Gr. Ch. Running Candy and Ch. Dirty Becky. Jersey Boys’ 2X winner Bullshannon, Chainsaw Kennels’ 1X winner Dixie, who won over Irish Jerry’s 2X winner. Also a good gyp out of the same litter as Bullshannon and Dixie named Widow Maker.STP owned one from this litter and was said to be a game dog, but was killed in a kennel accident. Captain America made several breedings with Bolt Action, one that comes to mind was the breeding to Gina Blue Eyes, which produced Chopper. There are several others of Bolt Action’s offspring who are producing well, most notably Ch. Black Pazmanian, who is off a daughter of Bolt Action.
I believe the Bolt Action dogs are here to stay and they are from a game winning line of dogs known as The Boyles’ line.
