  The 2009 Purina Award Winner was DC Ru-Jem's A Touch Of Bourbon owned by Ruth & Jerry McGee and handled by Jerry McGee. "Chug" had an impressive year with 15 one hour placements, including winning the Quail Championship, Deep South Free-For-All Championship, and the Prairie State Open & Amateur Championship. He amassed a total of 2642 points and was the third amateur trained and handled dog to win this award. Congratulations to Jerry, Ruth and Chug for a great year.
  The 2009 Award was presented at the Blue Mountain Club House on Saturday night after Thanksgiving. Well over 120 people were in attendance to help celebrate the award. Roy Pelton represented Purina and was well received for his countless years of support. Ross Young was also able to make it to the award ceremony and present his painting to last year's award winner. A good time was had by all. Jerry and Chug are already making plans for next year. The following is the list of all the point earners.
