Grommet was a homebred Charlin dog who finished his title so quickly that many breeders never saw him!  Grommet completed his championship in a grand total of 11 shows, with 2 specialty majors, and several Best of Variety wins from the classes over specials.  He was then specialed a short time, and later, brought home to be tried out as a stud dog.

Grommet was a stately dog, well up on leg, beautifully muscled as a male should be, and of exquisite head type and outline.  He had a long, strong head which was “all of a piece”, almond-shaped eyes with a lovely, almost exotic expression, and perfectly high-set ears.  He had lovely bone and feet, and the correct arch over the loin, which is so often lacking in today’s Manchesters.  All of this topped off with a sweet, non-argumentative temperament, which lent him both a showy style in the ring and an amenable demeanor at home.

Grommet lived to beyond his 15th birthday and died peacefully in his sleep on a beautiful Fall morning.  We miss him greatly.
