Everyone who has ever owned a dog has secretly picked a favorite. We try to deny that we have, but it's the truth. Sherman is mine. He was a part of my family for a year before I was born and he was here waiting for me when my mom brought me home. From that day forward, my love for dogs soared. Sherman was the epitome of tolerance. As a toddler, I would ride around on his back and call him my horsie. When my feet were cold, I'd stick them under his belly to get them warm. I would play in the driveway and put my favorite pieces of gravel in his mouth for safekeeping. One of these times, my neighbor's dog wandered over and began growling at me. I got scared and ran to get my mom. The dog chased me, but Sherman fought him to keep him away. Sherman loved to watch Lassie movies, eat bologna, and take naps with me. In 2009, we found out he had cancer. He had surgery and the vet didn't think he would live more than a month. To the vet's amazement, Sherman lived a whole other year. He said Sherman must have known how much he was loved, and he must have loved us back fiercely to hang on so long. At the end of his life, he had suffered from arthritis for years and couldn't walk anymore. On St. Patrick's Day 2010, he passed away. He was my horsie, my Old Man, my protector, and my best friend.
