2015 Purina Outstanding Open Retriever Award
“Bullet” snagged his second consecutive Purina Outstanding Open Retriever Award, earning 52 points during the yearlong competition. NFC-AFC Robbers’ Stray Bullet’s achievement also marked a three-peat for handler Alan Pleasant of Black River Retrievers in Angier, North Carolina, who won in 2014 with Bullet and in 2013 with “Cane” (FC-AFC Ragin Eye Of The Storm). “Bullet is an exceptional marker and consistent on land and in water. He’s a total team player,” he says. The 8-year-old male was bred by Dan Hurst of Bullard, Texas, and is owned by Hank McNeil of Philadelphia, who says Bullet’s “amusing antics make him a national champion house dog.” Bullet is fueled by Purina Pro Plan SPORT Performance 30/20 Formula.
