Sherman wasn’t the type of dog to take a situation lightly. He liked to show exactly who was boss with panting, barking, and the occasional bit of jumping up impolitely. He was a dog who liked to set a tone of dominance, and in-chargeness early on. Occasionally, if his point was not getting across, he would defecate in an inappropriate, yet visible location. That usually did the trick. He was seldom crossed twice, after one well-placed, creamy, steaming hot turd. And if that didn’t work ,he’d send out a few guys to do a little roughing up or strategic killing.
