Purina Awards

Dialed In

The issue of May 4 announced the season’s Purina Top Dog Award winner and the All-Age Hander of the Year, Dunn’s Tried’n True the top dog and Luke Eisenhart the leading handler.

Two additional Purina Awards complete the all-age roster — the Amateur All-Age  and top Derby — Dialed In winning the former, and Dogwood Bill, the latter.

The six-year-old (March 8) white and orange pointer female, sired by Miller’s Dialing In, is owned and handled by Jim Pendergest of Lexington, Ky. This is the second Purina Award for the Pendergest family, son Matt shown as the owner of Pendy’s Good Grace, the top Derby Award winner of the 2016-2017 season.

Dialed In earned a total of 1003 points on the merits of six good wins, including winner of the Region 3 Amateur All-Age Championship, runner-up in the National Amateur Invitational Championship,

Region 2 and Region 4 Amateur All-Age Championships, and a first in the Marshall County (Miss.) Amateur All-Age and a third in the High Plains Amateur All-Age, stakes that covered a wide geographic swath.


Dogwood Bill is a white and orange pointer male in the ownership of Dogwood Kennels — George and Cindy Watkins — of Boston, Ga. He was handled by Jamie Daniels during his Derby campaign in which he won four points-earning placements, including runner-up in the Georgia Derby  Championship  and winner of the Continental Derby Championship in January.

Additionally, Bill won first in the Bear Pond Open Derby and a second in the Muckalee Open Derby to earn his winning point total of 1161 points.

Dialed In and Dogwood Bill, their fond owners and handlers,   will be officially recognized the weekend of June 21-22 in Nashville, Tenn., where the 2018-2019 Purina Awards will be presented.
