"Sherman" has the sort of temperament that every breeder strives to produce. He is fearless, outgoing, sweet and loves everyone he meets. I found out the hardest thing about showing him was keeping him from not "talking back" with his howling and keeping all four paws on the ground. He can hardly contain himself when anyone comes close to give him attention. His temperament and personality are what I feel are his most admirable traits, but his ring presence, soft expression, straight tight bite, along with his beautiful smooth body are right close behind.
Special thanks to Dave and Jan Yenne for allowing Sherman to come stay with me in Canada for 2 1/2 months the summer of 2006. During that time I worked very hard in "molding" Sherman into a great show dog. He had so much energy and playfulness, but I had to figure a way to control it in and out of the ring. Sherman eventually learned to respect my wishes and our time in the ring together will always be a very special memory for me! This boy never stops showing and still gets that "mischevious look" in his eyes, which means he is just seconds from jumping up and wrapping his paws around you.
When Rick and I left the Regionals, after returning him to Dave, we had a very hard time. He had worked his way into our hearts so quickly! We know his brother Simon misses him as much as we do!
Thank you Dave and Jan for giving Sherman the most incredible and loving home I could have ever asked for!! I wish I lived closer, so we could see Shemrman all the time, but I'm very grateful of your friendship and for the care and safe home you have provided for Sherman. .
