2012 Purina Outstanding Bench Show Coonhound Award
Flashy good looks helped a 2-year-old male Treeing Walker, called “Rock,” win the ninth annual Purina Bench Show Award. Handler Michael Seets of Stonefort, Ill., who co-owns Rock with his wife, Myra, knew he had “a diamond in the rough” when he first saw the hound at 14 months old. A three-time Purina Award winner, Seets began practicing with Rock at fairgrounds before shows, turning him into a winner who outperformed 2,033 hounds. WCH NITE CH GR CH ‘PR’ Preachers John the Rock took five state championships and the American Coon Hunters Association World Show. Rock is powered by Purina Pro Plan SPORT Performance 30/20 Formula.
