"While the pointer has been making rapid strides toward improvement during the past 20 years, in all parts of the country, perhaps nowhere has greater success been achieved than in the state of Texas; and the focussing point is the little town of Ferris. Back in 1909, E.T. Cole secured a white and liver pointer bitch puppy which he named "Lady Ferris". She was bred by M.M. Miller, of Thurber, Tex., it is true, but her life and achievements centers about Mr. Cole for it was through him that "Lady Ferris" gained distinction, and incidentally put the little town, whose name she bears, on the field trial map. E.T. Cole was a student of blood lines long before the days of "Lady Ferris" and he has continued to make this fascinating pastime his avocation; that he was successful, the records prove."

"When "Lady Ferris" was old enough, Mr. Cole realized that she had quality, and negotiations were entered into with Charles H. Babcock to devlop and campaign her. "Lady" came out in the derbies of 1910. It was a season that will be remembered by the regular patrons for its even lot of puppies. No one derby had a walk-away that year. Among the dogs competing on the major circuit were "Mamoney", "Master Devereux", "Master Charley", "Miss Sylvia", "Riverview Rodifer", "Kentucky Beauty", "Kate Storm", "Security", and "Lady Ferris". It was diamond cut diamond among these puppies right down the circuit and all of them were placed at various times, all dependent upon conditions. "Lady Ferris", for her share of the honors, took a first and two thirds, and in her first all-age year was placed twice. As a matter of fact, she was not campaigned to any extent in her finished form. Mr. Cole took her home, for he wanted to build up a family of great pointers, with "Lady Ferris" as the foundation stock."
