"Wholesome sport, of all forms pertaining to field and stream, appeal favorably to the consideration of the famous artist, "Edmund H. Osthaus", of Toledo, Ohio. As an angler he is skilful, and takes much genuine pleasure with rod and reel; but his sport with dog and gun transcend all others. ... His kennel contains both well-bred setters and pointers, and he exacts, as a pre-requisite for favorable consideration, that they shall be of special excellence as field performers. These he keeps for his own private shooting and for the friends who are favored with an invitation to join him therin; for he is generous in sharing his peasures. The most famous of his kennel was "Ripsey", a descendant of the great pointer dog, "Rip Rap". She was an excellent field performer and also was a winner several times in the Members Stake of the Eastern Field Trial Club, a condition of the competition being that the dogs shall be handled by owners, hence it is strictly an amateur event. ... Having a profound knowledge of field and field-trial work, combined with high ideals and moral courage to fearlessly declare his judgements, he is much sought, by field-trial clubs, to act as judge at their competitions." -- Maj. J.M. Taylor, 1907, Field Trial Record of Dogs in America


""Ripsey" (E.H. Osthaus). First, Member's Stake, Eastern Club trials, Newton, N.C., 1897; first, Members' Stake, Eastern Club trials, Newton, N.C. 1898; second, Members' Stake, Continental Club trials, Newton, N.C., 1899; third, Members' Stake, Continental Club trials, Newton, N.C., 1900." -- Taylor, 1907


"All during these years (1890's) the Charlottesville Kennels were using him ("Rip Rap") regularly at stud, and they were campaigning his puppies without fear or favor. As a result they placed nine of his progeny in field trials. But others were also breeding to him, and in all, "Rip Rap" sired nineteen field trial winners. The nine campained by the Charlottesville Kennels were: "Selah", "Delhi", "Tippoo", "India", "Nabob", "Warlock", "Ranee", "Nana", and "Khartoum". The other ten were: "Ripsaw", "Lady Peg II", "Ripple", "Daisy Rip Rap", "Ripsey", "Riptone", "Mollie", "Zephyr II", "Rap's Ranger", and "Young Rip Rap". -- Hochwalt, 1923, The Modern Pointer


""Ripsey", out of "Dolly D", owned by E.H. Osthaus, won the Membership stake of the Eastern trials in 1897 in a field of nine English setters and five pointers. In 1898 she again won it, this time in a field of five pointers and four English setters. In 1899 she was second in the same stake in a field of seven English setters and three pointers, and in 1900 she won third in the Membership of the Continental trials in a field of five English setters and three pointers." -- Hochwalt, 1911, The Pointer and Setter in America
