"Mr. A.C. Waddell, who at one time owned dogs in connection with Mr. Sherwood, was the possessor of a number of dogs of the native stock years ago. One of the best known was the black pointer "Phil", who in time came to be known as "Old Phil". He was a dog whose pedigree had never been traced any farther back than as by "Billow" out of "Sue", but he was generally known as the "Colt dog of Hartford, Connecticut", the place where he came from. "Billow" was the dog brought from the South during the Civil War and used quite extensively at stud. "Old Phil" was a very well made pointer, in proof of which we have his bench show record, which consists of a first at Mineola and Watertown in 1875. "Phil" was bred to "E.A. Kelsey's Prudence" in 1873 and produced "Pete", also a black dog. The latter became the property of G.A. Strong of West Meriden, Connecticut, and was then knwn as "Strong's Pete". The dog was shown quite frequently with good success and he eventually became a champion." -- Hochwalt, 1911, The Pointer and Setter in America
