Sherman's Report

To:  THE OFFICE OF THE GREAT DANE

Subject: OFFICIAL ONE YEAR STATUS REPORT

I volunteered for the difficult mission of filling the hole in the heart left behind by the untimely Rainbow Bridge Crossing of my Uncle Deacon.  I chose this pack because I knew I could bring joy.

The year has gone exceedingly well.  Great Auntie Essex has done an outstanding job of teaching me the way of the collie.  She will not let me join in fence patrol though.  So I play with the other dogs at Angel Paws.

I have engaged in a major campaign of face licking, nibbling, affection and overall silliness to bring joy to Dog Dad.  On days like Uncle Deacon's Barkday, Barkaverssary and Rainbow Bridge Crossing day there is sadness.  There is also love, timid smiles and thankfulness that I and Great Auntie Essex are there.  On other days the pack is happy and enjoys life.

It is hard to believe that I have been a year with my Great Auntie and Dog Dad.  There have been many laughs, hugs, treats and love in my pack.   I received much praise and hugs today.  This mission can be written down as fully successful in the howled official record books of the Great Dane.

We knew you would bring you own special and unique ways to help heal a wounded heart. It is the way of the collie after all!

WOW...it doesn't seem like a year, but it is. Sherman is a silly & lovable boy. He's grown up big, and his bark will always resound in our hearts if not in our ears! ;-)
