2014 Purina Outstanding Open Retriever Award
A 7-year-old male Labrador Retriever called “Bullet” captured the 2014 Purina Outstanding Open All-Age Retriever Award by earning 60 points in the yearlong competition. Winning seven of the eight trials during the spring, NFC-AFC Robbers’ Stray Bullet wrapped up the year by taking first at the 2014 National Open Retriever Championship in November in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Qualifying for all-age competition at just 15 months of age, Bullet earned his FC-AFC title by age 3 and was a 2013 National Open Finalist and 2014 National Amateur Finalist. “He’s just so well-rounded,” said handler Alan Pleasant of Angier, North Carolina. “Bullet excels at every part of the game.” Owned by the late Marion “Kippy” Stroud-Swingle of Elverson, Pennsylvania, Bullet is fed Purina® Pro Plan® SPORT Performance 30/20 Chicken & Rice Formula.
