I wanted to have a companion for Vincent and fell in love with Vincent's grandfather the famous Ch. Darelyn Rifleman. I wanted a son by him, and in 1990 Butch was born in down in Cornwall. For me Butch excelled in breedtype, had a wonderful head, coat and bone. Those were the qualities he sired on many different bitches. Butch is in many pedigrees of European Curlies. He died too young at the age of 9 but he lives on in his many children and grandchildren. Butch was a very caring dog, his job was to clean the other dogs eyes and ears every day. He was extremely loyal, always wanted to be with me, that was all that mattered to him. In the show ring he was a bit in Vincent's shadow, he wasn't such a showman, but breed specialists often placed him over Vincent.
here to see Butch's pedigree.
