2012 Purina Outstanding Open Retriever Award

Outstanding Open Retriever Award

A 7-year-old black male Labrador Retriever called “Pete” is the 2012-2013 Purina Open All-Age Retriever. NFC-AFC Seaside’s Pelican Pete, who was handled by Steve Yozamp of Kimball, Minn., earned 43.5 Open points plus 5 bonus points as the winner of the 2012-2013 National Open Stake. Winning the Purina Award with Pete was a dream come true for owner Robert Zylla of St. Cloud, Minn. ”Pete had a phenomenal year,” Zylla says. “He and I won back-to-back Amateurs to complete his AFC title, and he went on to win six Opens with Steve.” Pete is fueled by Purina Pro Plan SPORT Performance 30/20 Formula.
