2014-2015 Purina Top Shooting Dog Amateur Award
A 3-year-old liver-marked Pointer called “Rip” tore through the competition to win the 12th annual Purina Top Shooting Dog Amateur Award. Lester’s Prime Poison Lane clinched the award by winning the National Amateur Free-For-All Championship and claiming 1,040 points of the 1,367 total he earned in the yearlong shooting dog stakes. Owner-handler Brian Peterson of Cecil, Alabama, says, “An important part of training is going to the field every day. Each day offered a new lesson to learn, even if it’s not what we expected. It built trust between Rip and me.” Bred by Gary Lester of Gracey, Kentucky, Rip is powered by Purina® Pro Plan® SPORT Performance 30/20 Chicken & Rice Formula.
