2014 Purina Outstanding SPO Field Trial Beagle Award
For the second consecutive year, a 13-inch tricolor Beagle called “Aesop” captured the Purina Award for the Outstanding SPO Field Trial Beagle. Earning 238 points in the yearlong competition, FCGD Cable’s Aesop is the first repeat winner in the 16-year history of the Purina Award. The 6-year-old hound, with owner-handler John Cable of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, won 14 field trials and placed in 24 of the 30 Purina sponsored field trials. “Aesop’s greatest quality is consistency,” Cable says. “He doesn’t shake too easily.” Leading the pack by more than 100 points, Aesop outperformed more than 8,000 hounds. He is fueled by Purina® Pro Plan® SPORT Performance 30/20 Chicken & Rice Formula.
