Chelsea "Big Head" Walker 2005-Too Soon
Chelsea "Big Head" Walker, age 11, passed away Monday in Rice Lake, WI. She is survived by all 5 members of the Walker household and by sister Peyton "Pey Pey" Walker.
Born Francesca in the city of Woodbury, MN, Chelsea spent the first year of her life trying to figure out that atrocious Minnesota stench and why she had not been adopted. That all changed one summer day in 2006 when the Walker family showed up to take her home to the great, dog loving state of Wisconsin.
Once home, Chelsea quickly adjusted to her new life as the empty hole in her heart was filled with joy and unconditional love. She enjoyed taking long, lazy naps, serving as a footrest for Pey Pey, and chewing grass anytime she was outside.
Not to be outdone by her famous big brother Bailey, Chelsea started training to become a world champion eater and still holds the Guinness record for eating a bowl of dog food in 3.4 seconds. The fame she received would have corrupted most dogs but she stayed firm to the morals taught to her by the Walker family and lived a clean life.
Like all dogs though, the end came but not before she fought to turn a 3 month diagnosis into another year of life. The bright smile that illuminated any room she entered may be gone but she will live on through anyone who witnessed it.
Visitation will be from 5-8p on Friday at Appleyard's Home for Funerals. Burial service at the Walker Pet Cemetery will commence at 10a on Saturday with reflection and refreshments shortly after.
The Walker family asks that any donations be made to the Eric Walker Needs $$ For A Ski Trip In 2 Weeks Foundation.
