"Up in the Northwest a pointer which gained considerable notoriety as a bench show dog and local celebrity as a field performer was "Dilley's Ranger", owned by S.B. Dilley of Lake City, Minnesota. Among his bench show successes was first at Chicago in 1876. He was a heavily marked liver, white and ticked dog. "Dilley's Ranger" was bred to considerably by the pointer fanciers of the West and North, but he did not leave any sons or daughters that made a great impression by their deeds." -- Hochwalt, 1923, The Modern Pointer
