I have been in contact with a few of Shermans siblings over the last year. I love being in touch and knowing similarities and differences in the litter. Sherman has four other siblings, Spartan (MYL), Sirroco (MBL), Sage (FYL), and Samantha (FYL). From what I have heard Sherman, Samantha and Sirroco are the most alike in looks while Sherman and Sirrocco share the same personality and Spartan and Samantha are the opposite of Sherman and Sirroco personality wise. I have not heard anything about Sage so I don't know what she is like at all.
This is a picture of Spartan. Isn't he handsome. Doesn't look much like Sherm at all though. :) Here is what his raiser had to say about him in her most recent message.
"Spartan has matured a bit, weighing in at 75 lb. But he still try's to be the boss sometimes. His recall date is May 3 for the college prep course. I will really miss him as he's been my constant companion. We've both learned so much in our time together and have had many adventures."
He is huge, and is nearly twenty pounds bigger than Sherman. I can't even imagine Sherman with another 20 pounds on him. :) He definitely got his daddies size. (I hear Norbert is a BIG boy) I wish Spartan luck in formal training and look forward to watching him on the phase report. You will do awesome Spartan!!
"Samantha is a small girl. She weighs about 53 lbs. She is pretty good but likes to be a little dominate sometimes. She was looked at for international breeder, but has a little bit of a heart problem. Not a bad enough problem to stop her from being a guide. I have not gotten her recall letter yet, but I am anticipating June."
I heard that she and her sister Sage were both looked at for international breeding but neither were chosen. I do know that Sage has the same recall as Sherman. She will be going into training in June as well. We will see if sister Samantha will join them then. :)
Well, that is all for today. Hug those pups for me. :)
